Green Paws Odor & Stain Eliminator

Green Paws Odor & Stain Eliminator (4 biscuits)

Our take: Green Paws relies on enzymes and ‘friendly’ bacteria to eat into the stain, and surfactants to lift it out of the carpet fiber so you can blot it away. The makers say it’s also got ‘odor encapsulators’ that get rid of the smell entirely, keeping your dog from making a repeat visit–although it says nothing about what those odor encapsulators are made of and how they work. It’s free of fragrance, bleach, DEA, and phosophates.

I added some of the product into the washing machine with a load of cat pee-infested fabric. If you’ve ever lived with a cat, you know cat pee smells much worse than dog pee, which is bad enough. I think there is nothing on the planet that will really remove the smell entirely, but Green Paws certainly helped significantly.
