Why Pet Enzyme Cleaners Work the Best to Clean Up Dog and Cat Urine

If you have four-legged family members, pet messes are a part of life. Whether it's pee, poop, or puke, a home with pets has more than ordinary messes. That’s why any ordinary cleaner just won’t do.

Bio-enzymatic pet mess cleaners use “good” bacteria to digest wastes, soils, stains, and odors. They're paws down the best solution for cleaning up dog and cat urine.

Why You Need to Use an Enzyme Cleaner for Dog and Cat Urine

When your dog has an accident or your cat pees outside of the litter box, it's only natural to reach for the nearest available cleaner – even if it’s an everyday household cleaner.

The problem is, those aren't designed to tackle dog and cat urine. Many cleaners on the market simply mask the odor without neutralizing your pet’s pee. As a result, if the urine isn’t completely broken down and eliminated, your pet’s sensitive nose will still smell it – which can lead to more accidents.

Enzyme cleaners, however, are specifically designed to eliminate pet mess! Here’s the science:

Enzymes are produced by “good” bacteria. Think of them as helpful tools that catalyze, or speed up, chemical reactions between bacteria and your pet’s mess. These enzymes break down certain molecules (think pee, poop, dirt, and vomit) into smaller pieces. Then these smaller pieces become “food” for the bacteria. Those helpful bacteria eat the broken-down waste and change it into simple compounds; odorless carbon dioxide and water.

With enzyme cleaners, your pet’s pee problem literally evaporates into thin air! But as amazing as that is, pet enzyme cleaners only work when used the right way. 

How to Use a Pet Enzyme Cleaner the Right Way

When using an enzyme cleaner, simply a “spray and wipe away” plan of attack simply won’t work. Follow these steps to unlock the power of your pet enzyme cleaner:

  1. Soak Up and Saturate. The less pee you have to manage, the better! Soak up as much pee as you can with a paper towel, then saturate the area thoroughly with your enzyme cleaner. This critical step is where many pet parents make mistakes! Spraying the cleaner and then immediately wiping it away defeats the purpose. Remember, this is a biological process that needs time to work. So saturate the area and go just beyond the borders of the spot in question.

  2. Gently agitate the surface (if soft) using the bottom of the cleanser bottle, working the product into all the nooks and crannies. Set a clean white cloth on top of the spot. For soft surfaces like carpet and upholstery, let it sit for 12+ hours or overnight. Or for sealed surfaces, leave up to 15 minutes. Remove the cloth.

  3. Let it air dry. 

It's that easy!

Knowing the proper way to use a pet enzyme cleaner is one thing. Choosing the best enzyme cleaner is an entirely different story. 

What Makes Kinderbean No-Stress Mess Eraser a Unique Pet Enzyme Cleaner

Kinderbean No-Stress Mess Eraser was created by Pet Living expert, Kristen, a lifelong pet parent and blogger and former adoption advocate for the SPCA. 

Like many pet parents, she was constantly frustrated when it came to cleaning up her pets’ accidents. 

After trying dozens of cleaners and getting feedback from her readers, she realized none of them seemed to do the trick. So she took matters into her own hands and created Kinderbean No-Stress Mess Eraser!

She sought to create a pet enzyme cleaner that was:

  • Safe for every member of the family, human and animal

  • Safe for carpet, hard surfaces, upholstery, laundry, leashes, and more

  • Effective

  • Easy to use

  • Had a natural, not overpowering, scent

Kinderbean has no dyes and is formulated with only five natural and safe ingredients. Its non-toxic formula comes in a gentle, grapefruit and tea tree fragrance. 

The unique squeeze top helps the enzyme cleaner to saturate the spot so the enzymes can get to work “eating” the bad bacteria that cause stains and odors. Carpet, upholstery, and fabrics are much harder to soak using a spray bottle, so the universal squeeze top is the best solution and can be used on both soft and hard surfaces. Not to mention, it’s quite a bit sturdier than spray nozzles which tend to break in shipping.

Kinderbean No-Stress Mess Eraser is available for purchase as a single bottle or a two-pack. Love more and stress less!
