Can I Use Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator Concentrate Without Diluting It?
No, the bacteria in the Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator Concentrate need water to activate and survive. If the product is not diluted the bacteria will stay dormant and will not be able to eat away the stain or odor. If you are looking for something already premixed we do offer Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator Ready To Use.
How should I dilute the product?
For typical stains and odors 10-1(water to product) works great. An easy way to measure that is to take an empty quart bottle, or a quart measuring cup, use 3 oz of Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator Concentrate and fill up measuring cup to the quart mark or fill up the bottle the rest of the way with warm water. If there is a lot of urine, you can mix a stronger solution of 7-1, 4 oz to a quart bottle fill with water, or 5-1, 5.5 oz. to a quart bottle then fill with water . Or just mix 1 oz of Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator Concentrate to 10 ounces of warm water. Keep in mind, after the Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator Concentrate is diluted it only has 7 days until the bacteria become inactive so only make what you will need to use.
I have a very large area to clean.
The easiest way to clean a large area either inside or outside, is to use a 1 gallon pump up garden sprayer. We suggest you use a new one, since garden chemicals used in it previously it could affect the bacteria in the Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator Concentrate. Mix a 10-1 mixture in the sprayer then, pump it up and spray the area that needs to be cleaned. You want to saturate the area. It can be used anywhere water won’t damage.

My Pet Is On Pet Meds, Is That a Problem?
Unfortunately, pet medications, especially antibiotics, contain anti-bacterial properties that when they come into contact, will kill the bacteria in the Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator Concentrate and Ready To Use.

Why Isn’t The Urine Smell Going Away?
A couple possibilities:
How Should I Apply the Product To A Mattress?
Saturate the area where the odor and stain are located on the mattress. Make sure there is enough Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator Concentrate Or Ready To Use applied so that it can penetrate far enough down into the mattress. Use a dilution ratio of 5 parts water to 1 part product, to make a quart use 5.5 oz Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator Concentrate and fill a quart bottle the rest of the way with warm water. After the product is applied, place a warm, damp, white towel over the stained area and apply pressure for a few seconds. By applying pressure to the towel, you allow the mattress to fully soak up all the product, helping the Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator Concentrate or Ready To Use reach the hard-to-reach areas.

How Is Our Product Different?
Isn’t Bacteria Unhealthy?

The bacteria used is non-pathogenic, which means, “not harmful to humans or animals.” Non-pathogenic bacteria are used in many everyday products such as milk and yogurt. However, Unique it is not for human consumption.
Does Your Product Have Perfume?
One of the great things about bacteria is you don’t need to mask the odor because the bacteria is going to remove it completely. That said we do have a little perfume in our products. You only smell it as the product is working, once the area is dry you will not have any perfume left.
If you are allergic to perfumes our Carpet Shampoo would be a great product for you to use. It has no perfume at all. It will still work for spot cleaning and is an excellent choice for using in a carpet extractor.
