I now have three varieties of the Thornell Odor Eliminators. I like them all. My veterinarian used one on a recent visit and that peaked my interest. Chewy needs to offer the gallon refill versions of all of them.
I found that I need to use almost double of what they recommend to get the smell of Guinea pig and hedge hog waste from fleece liners… although it does work, it gets expensive to have to use twice as much when the bottle is so small for the cost.
Okay, real talk: This stuff is definitely expensive, but it’s genuinely worth every cent! I mean, it’s 30 bucks a bottle… and you’re definitely going to use much more than 1 ounce per load if something is truly soiled instead of just kinda stinky… but that’s still a whole heck of a lot cheaper than buying a whole new duvet or couch or all new clothes or whatever! Between pets, kids, workout clothes, sickness, etc… you DEFINITELY want a bottle of this in your laundry room at all times! If there’s any sort of bodily fluid – human or animal – on anything fabric, USE THIS! It has no smell of its own, but manages to remove the stink from clothes, blankets, etc. – both to the human sense of smell, AND the canine one! Sick kid got diarrhea and vomit all over his queen-size blanket! I wiped off as much as I could with toilet paper, saturated the entire soiled area with this, let it sit for a few minutes, scrubbed it in vigorously for several seconds per spot, let it sit for a few more minutes while the washer filled up with hot water and dissolved all the detergent/laundry sanitizer/1 more ounce of this in the wash water… & used another dose of laundry sanitizer in place of fabric softener… then I loaded the heavily soiled cover into the soapy water, & washed in hot water… on the longest gentle cycle possible! After it finished the first wash/rinse/spin, I took it out and spread it over the laundry room floor to check every single part of both sides of the cover! Not only did I no longer see or smell the truly rank bodily fluids, it had also mostly taken out an old vomit stain that someone had not made sure was thoroughly removed before drying! I was always going to have to wash something with bodily fluids on it at least twice, so I was just relieved it wouldn’t take several times! I poured more of this directly onto the old stain, let it sit, scrubbed it in, let it sit while the washer was filling up and dissolving everything again, etc. Since I’d accordion folded the blanket lengthwise for the first wash, I did it horizontally this time, then loaded it into the hot, soapy water… I still used detergent, laundry sanitizer, and another shot of this in the wash water… but went with actual fabric softener instead of more sanitizer this time… and used the longest, hottest gentle cycle possible again! That was all it took! Pre-treating and washing twice totally did it! Since I was always going to have to do that much anyway, this made it less work than it otherwise would’ve been! I tossed it in the dryer with a few dryer sheets, and it came out perfectly! It smells great! All of my laundry products are the kind for sensitive skin – no perfume or dye – so I know it’s not just being covered up by perfume! This stuff genuinely got the job done right as quickly as possible!
