How to Remove Outdoor Pet Odor

How to Remove Outdoor Pet Odor

We love our pets, but not the stink they make! Keeping the yard clean and smelling fresh can be a big concern for pet owners, especially when it starts to heat up in the summertime. On top of animal urine and waste stinking up your outdoor area, they can also attract flies, which can be particularly annoying when you and your family are looking to spend time and enjoy meals outside.

Even if the smells are coming from a designated area like a dog run, they can still waft into parts of the yard where you would rather not smell them. Removing dog urine odor from your yard or outdoor area calls for eliminating the source, not just covering it up.

Although baking soda, white vinegar, soap, and hydrogen peroxide may neutralize smells temporarily, a humid day can cause the uric acid in urine to recrystallize and release the odors in your outdoor area again. Lime is also sometimes used to eliminate odors, but it can be dangerous to your family and your pet’s health.

To put the fresh back in your breath of fresh air, use an enzymatic cleaner with live bacteria to break down and eliminate the tough odor sources. Simple Green Outdoor Odor Eliminator will help you reclaim your yard, patio, deck, and other outdoor areas from unpleasant smells left behind by your dog, cat, or other outdoor animals. The orally non-toxic solution (which is never tested on animals) safely eliminates unpleasant odors like urine, poop, and vomit, without harming your landscaping or artificial turf.

Directions for Removing Pet Odor from Your Yard:

Grass, Gravel & Artificial Turf

  1. Remove solid waste and miscellaneous items. Remove any solid waste from your yard or outdoor area.
  2. Connect to your hose. Shake the Simple Green Outdoor Odor Eliminator hose-end spray bottle well. Connect the sprayer nozzle to your garden hose.
  3. Spray the area. Generously spray down the area beginning at the farthest end of the yard.
  4. Spray the area with plain water. When finished, lightly mist the surface with water, to extend the life of Simple Green’s naturally-derived microorganisms, so they can penetrate more deeply and attack odors at the source.
  5. Dry. Let the area dry.

Concrete, Brick, Stone & Wood

  1. Remove solid waste and miscellaneous items. Remove any solid waste from the outdoor area, and move aside any furniture or items unaffected by the bad smells.
  2. Connect to your hose. Shake Simple Green Outdoor Odor Eliminator bottle well, and connect the sprayer nozzle to your hose.
  3. Spray the area. Generously spray down the area beginning at the farthest end of the yard.
  4. Dry. Let the area dry.

TIP: For best results, use Simple Green Outdoor Odor Eliminator around sunset to prevent it from drying too quickly. The longer the odor-eating microorganisms stay alive and active, the more poop and urine smells they will remove.
