Enviro Fresh-Odor Out & Slurp ‘n Fresh: Earth Conscious Products that Work

screen-shot-2016-07-29-at-10-17-10-am

Last week my house was a bit of a construction zone. In August, the kid’s bathroom sink over-flowed leaving a big swampy mess that resulted in some damage to the ceiling on the main level.  We had corrugated cardboard taped to the floor, plastic tape over the carpet,  and when they have been working on the ceiling there was plastic sheeting put up to protect the counters/walls etc. The cats were NOT happy, and showed some signs of being stressed out. They really don’t like change, and they didn’t like the furniture being moved, their food bowls being moved, and the workmen in the house.

They really really didn’t like the loud fans that were used to help speed up drying time. Although generally speaking they tend to like cardboard (hello empty box, I must sit in you),  they really hate the noise that is made when anyone, including themselves, walk on it.

Eddie

Odor Out

When the boys got home from school last Wednesday, my 9 year old noticed that one of the cats (probably Eddie, its ALWAYS Eddie) urinated in his bedroom and also in a basket of clean laundry I had left in the laundry room. Luckily I had a bottle of Odor Out Cat Urine & Other Odors that I had received from Enviro Fresh earlier in the week.

14657481_10153982555866732_5285251901457842284_n

Odor Out is good for use on ALL surfaces (carpets, floors, etc) AND also safe to use in the laundry (always check the colour fastness before using)!

To use on hard surfaces, spray on and let air dry. To use on fabrics, dilute 1 part Odor Out to 5 parts water and apply from the furthest area affected towards the middle of the affected area. Always read and follow all directions included on the product, and always keep out of reach of children.

For the carpet I sprayed the Odor Out on full strength according to the directions, and we allowed to dry. We repeated one time just to make sure we covered the entire area that was affected. Thankfully it was just a small area by my son’s door.   The affected laundry item was a big fluffy towel, so I treated the towel according to the directions (1 part product to 5 parts water), and once that was done I washed the entire load of laundry (mostly towels) like normal.

The Results:

Let me start by saying that I have used dozens of different products over the years to try to help rid problems areas of cat urine smell with varying degrees of success. Because I have scent (and other) allergies, I’m quite limited to what I can use because I react to almost everything. Most products designed to get rid of smells of any kind are heavily scented, meaning I’m heavily allergic. The Odor Out I was provided with is UNSCENTED! The ONLY smell I could discern from it was a light minty smell which is from natural mint and nothing synthetic, flowery, etc.

I’m pleased to say that Odor Out did the trick, and my son’s room smells like it always does, free from the awfulness that is cat urine AND the laundry, specifically the fluffy towel, smell clean and no one would ever know that the cat had an accident!

Slurp ‘n Fresh

Enviro Fresh also sent me a bottle of Slurp ‘n Fresh oral hygiene solution which helps eliminate bad kitty breath! Its really easy to use! When you change your cat’s water, you add in a small amount of Slurp ‘n Fresh which will help soften plaque & tarter, and eliminate bad breath that is caused by the same compounds that are responsible for tooth decay and gum disease! Walmart sells Slurp ‘n Fresh for less than $5 a bottle, so its really affordable!

This is a great solution for cats who don’t like having their teeth brushed. I have never known a cat that enjoyed having their teeth brushed, and Eddie and Tux are no exception to that rule.

According to the information insert that I received with the Slurp ‘n Fresh,  periodontal disease is the #1 problem veterinarians see in cats (and dogs)? By the age of 3, almost 80% of dogs and 70% of cats will show signs of tooth decay and gum disease which can lead to more serious problems involving the kidney, liver and even the heart. Slurp ‘n Fresh doesn’t take the place of brushing or regular mouth care, but it will help!

Not only will Slurp ‘n Fresh help with bad breath, it will also reduce the smells that come from the litter box (fecal and urine odor).

Slurp ‘n Fresh is made in Canada, contains natural plant extracts and is 100% Food Grade quality. There are no artificial colours, sweeteners, salt or alcohol! Slurp ‘n Fresh is inexpensive, so very budget friendly!

So the big question is: Will Eddie and Tux notice that I added anything to their water? The Slurp ‘n Fresh has a really light minty smell to it, so I’m curious if it also has a taste that the cats will notice.

My cats have two water bowls, and we change the water twice a day (unless its hot and then we change it more frequently). The first night I added the slurp ‘n fresh to only one bowl.  I did the same in the morning when I freshened up their water. The second night I added it to both bowls.

The Results:

Eddie and Tux didn’t seem to notice that anything was added to their water! I didn’t notice any difference to their water drinking pattern at all, and they seem happy and content as always! The litter box is also a little less toxic! Overall, I’m very happy with the Slurp ‘n Fresh and will continue to buy and use it in the future!
