5 Ways to Rid Your Home of Dog Odours

We all love our pets, but sometimes their odour can take over our homes. That’s why Zoflora’s Fresh Home Odour Remover & Disinfectant is the perfect solution. It not only eliminates unwanted smells and leaves a beautiful Mountain Air fragrance, it also protects your family from germs and bacteria, including animal specific viruses.

Here are our top 5 ways to rid your home of dog odours:

1. Clean dog accidents on carpet

Cleaning up puppy puddles is no one’s idea of fun, but something that can’t be avoided when toilet training young dogs and caring for older dogs.

Tackle the occasional accident with Zoflora, removing lingering odours from dog urine, faeces or vomit.

After clearing away the mess, spray and wipe the area with diluted Zoflora Fresh Home to eliminate odour and kill bacteria before it has a chance to spread.

 

*Test for colour fastness on an inconspicuous area of carpet before using any cleaning products.

2. Mop up dog mess on hard floors

Our beloved pets can bring a wide range of dirt and bacteria into our homes. Keep your two and four legged family members safe by disinfecting hard floors at least once a week.

Dilute 4 capfuls of Zoflora Fresh Home in ½ a bucket of hot water and use to mop floors to kill bacteria and fill your home with a beautiful and long-lasting fragrance, as well as eliminating those pesky doggy odours.

3. Wipe down dog beds and cages

Is your dog’s bedding starting to whiff? This can be caused by a build-up of bacteria which creates nasty unwanted odours. Even if you’ve gone nose blind, any visitors may not be so lucky!

Using a cloth soaked in diluted Zoflora Fresh Home, wipe down the inside and outside of your dog bed or cage. Use a toothbrush to help remove any hidden bacteria from those hard to reach areas.

Place any soft bedding into a washing machine and add 1 capful of Zoflora Fresh Home to the rinse cycle to eliminate odours and leave smelling fragrantly fresh.

4. Disinfect dog toys

Dog toys can carry millions of bacteria which can be transferred onto hands if picked up and potentially cause infections.

To clean your dog toys, dilute around 4 capfuls of Fresh Home in a mop bucket of water and wipe down all toys with a cloth soaked in the Zoflora solution. Rinse all toys with warm water and allow to dry fully before returning to your pet.

5. Freshen your furniture

Many of us don’t like to admit it but we love nothing more than a cuddle with our four legged friend on the sofa. Unfortunately allowing our pets onto the furniture can transfer their odours onto our upholstery.

To combat this, dilute 2 capfuls of Zoflora Fresh Home in a 500ml trigger spray bottle, spritz over your furniture and leave to dry*.

* Test for colour fastness on an inconspicuous area of the sofa before using any cleaning products.

 

We hope you find these top tips helpful for eliminating odours and killing harmful bacteria.
