Earth Day Giveaway: Natural Cleaner for Pet Stains + Odors

It was only a matter of time. Joy, who most likely has a future as a prosecuting attorney, had some pretty solid arguments making her case for a puppy. Faith had begun to spend her free time with one of two different neighbors. Neither family has young children, but they have dogs! Then there was me, quietly and covertly on every few days, and coincidentally needing things from the pet supply store on adoption days. You can see how all of this was no match for my husband, right?


Don’t get me wrong, he loves dogs, too. But we already have two cats, one of which is geriatric, two active children, and two working parents. That’s a pretty full life, and what he really objected to was added complications and added messes. I get that. (As Chief Mess Cleaner, I totally get that!) So when he conceded and we adopted Chachi, I knew a good way to ensure harmony was to stay mindful of his concerns and try to reduce complications as much as possible. I mean, yes, this little guy is super handsome and adorable, but that only gets you so far!



One of the best things I did was to create a puppy-mess mini zone. In a small tote, I put in everything we needed for the unavoidable mistakes on the floor – absorbent rags, stain remover, paper towels and small trash bags. Let me tell you, that was a sanity saver in those first few weeks!


Clean+green New Carpet (2)When the folks at Clean+Green reached out to us to try their products, the timing was pretty good. Between that puppy and the geriatric cat… well, let’s just say I have a special interest in effective pet stain and odor removers! I’m also always super interested in natural products, so it intrigued me to hear these products are natural and safe for people, pets and the planet!


According to Clean+Green, their all-natural formula delivers instant results in a safe, non-toxic, eco-friendly solution. They use a patented formula that encapsulates and eliminates stain and odor on contact by naturally biodegrading the stain or odor source. They even have one formulated for skunk odor. Oh, please, let me never need that one!


I’ve been very impressed with the products they sent us to try, so I asked if we could give one to our readers in honor of Earth Day and they agreed! Would you like to try one of their products for yourself?

The Wood & Tile cleaner - thanks!

And Chachi is adorable!


I would love the furniture refresher! My puppy has had a few accidents on my couch and no matter how hard I try to get the smell out there is still a slight scent there.

The Wood and Tile cleaner OR the Furniture Refresher
when I win. Just kidding


Oh I so need this with my New puppy! He's adorable but not housetrained. We've had him for almost 2 weeks now. I need the Wood and Tile Cleaner. Thankfully we have tile so easier to clean up!


I'd try the carpet and upholstery cleaner for my potty training daughter. :)


We adopted a dog over a year ago and I would love the carpet and upholstery cleaner!


Thank you for offering a give-away! During the spring & fall, my furry feline often presents me with little hairball "gifts." And usually she deposits them on my hard wood floors. The Clean+Green Wood & Tile for cats would be the perfect clean-up solution!


Hey there,
Thanks for doing this giveaway! I just bought a used couch off craigslist. Spent a good chunk of money on it, got it home, and sat on it. After about 10 minutes I could smell urine. UGG! My cats are not a fan of our new smelling sofa. I could really use the "Dog Urine Odor and Stain Remover Clean+Green".
Thanks a bunch.
Crossing my fingers,


I would try the CLEAN+GREEN - Furniture Refresher for Dogs.

I would love to try the CLEAN+GREEN - Carpet & Upholstery for Dogs & Cats. I have three cats (two middle-aged and one adolescent), and am preparing to adopt my first pooch: a blind, geriatric rescue dog. I'll need all the help I can get!

Dana TM

Carpet is my choice. Thanks for the chance!

I would like the carpet cleaner for cats...and hope it works on their vomit, too. :)

Mary St Clair

My hubs and three girls are all begging for a puppy. We too have dos gatos (not geriatric, but still there are two of them!) and I keep bravely resisting. HOWEVER, it is only a matter of time now, of this I am sure. SO.... I would LOVE to try this product! Having something like this that really works would be awesome, and perhaps sway me a teensy bit! (regardless, I will definitely keep this, and the great tote idea, in mind) The carpet cleaner for cats (for now!) would be what I would try first!


I definitely would like to try the carpet and upholstery cleaner for cats. We have four, and they are generally well-behaved and not messy, but one is an Olympic-class barfer and another is a longhair with . . . well, he has occasional issues fending off the Klingon warships that like to hang on to his baffles.


I need the Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner for dogs. My dog keeps peeing and pooping on my dining room rug!

Jeri Dansky

The carpet and upholstery cleaner for cats! If you've got cats, you get hair balls coughed up - and they can make a mess.


I'd like to try the Furniture Refresher for Dogs. We have a big horse of dog and an itty bitty guy, so I'd be interesting in giving it a go.
