How to Remove Urine Stains and Odors from Clothing

Get rid of urine odors and stains

Overview

Whether you’re cleaning up after your child, an incontinent adult, or your pet, you know how difficult it can be to remove urine odors from clothing. The reason that this type of odor is so difficult to remove is because of the uric acid crystals found in urine. Any type of urine from mammals, whether it is human or pet urine, contains uric acid crystals, which can only be removed by using an enzyme based cleaning product. Traditional products involving soap and strong chemicals aren’t able to work because they do not break down the uric acid crystals. The only permanent method of removing urine odor and stains is by using products specifically designed to bind with and destroy the uric acid. This is exactly how our enzyme based cleaners work.

An effective enzyme-based urine remover that can be used as a "pre-wash" is OdorZyme. This product consists of a super strength plant-based surfactant, which digests the uric acid crystals at the source of the odor.

Specific Directions for Hardwood Floors

Odorzyme is a very effective pre-treatment for clothing contaminated by urine!

  • Saturate the entire area of clothing, where urine may have come into contact, with Odorzyme.
  • Allow to sit for 20 to 30 minutes before washing.
  • For particularly stubborn odors and stains, saturate and place in a plastic bag overnight. This will keep Odorzyme moist longer and allow the microbes and enzymes more time to completely break down the odor and stain.
