Which over-the-counter product is the best one to use on pet accidents?
Water. That’s it.
When you start introducing over-the-counter sprays or solutions, you chemically alter the pet stain permanently, often damaging the fibers, the dyes, or both.
Pet urine deposits start as an acid-based stain, low on the pH scale. As they dry, they pass through neutral (7 pH) and dry as an alkaline, high on the pH scale. Once this natural chemical change has occurred, the stains are quite difficult to remove without professional chemistry, the right tools, and lots of know-how.
