What is the best odor and stain remover?

I have a bottle of something called Nature's Miracle that I picked up at PetCo . . . Is that a good one? Which is best?

Hey LM, I've found that using OxyClean and water in a spray bottle works wonders. Coupled with my minibissell cleaner, you can't tell my Simon's been having bladder problems.

Just NEVER Windex or anything with ammonia. Ammonia smells pee-y.

Ammonia smell's "pee-y" because as urine oxidizes and ages, it turns into ammonia. So don't use anything ammonia based.

I used the oxygen cleaner on my training room to try it out since I had been given a bottle of it. I usually would use the enzyme cleaner. Anyway, within an hour 3 dogs peed. It didn't remove the scent from puppy accidents. Stick with the enzyme cleaners, any work fine.

I use white vinegar for hard surfaces. Once it dries it doesn't smell like vinegar anymore and disenfects and gets rid of the urine smell. It's also an environmentally friendly alternative to many household cleaners.

I have always used white vinegar (like kayla said) in my carpet cleaner.
It's great for carpet stains and odours.

Best odor and stain remover:
Folex - available in most home and garden stores and
shops like walmart, canadian tire, etc etc.
Just spray it on, agitate with a finger, wait 10 minutes,
and watch even bright red "dogs stomach couldnt handle the spaghetti
sauce" stain disappear before your eyes.
As for smells, it effectively removes all traces of male cat spray/urine.
Works great. Far superior to that crappy Natures Miracle product.

stain remover

I use Natures Miracle or a product called Sox.

Both work great.
