**REVIEW** Angry Orange Pet Odor Eliminator

I originally wanted to test this product because we happen to have 2 small (indoor) dogs and 2 cats. What I ended doing was testing it on a tougher kind of odor: vomit and diarrhea.

First though, despite the name, I used the Angry Orange  Pet Odor Eliminator as a sort of room fragrance - for after cooking and after having a houseful of folk sleeping off their crazy celebratory night on the town. In other words, I had a bunch of drunk people spread throughout the house for a weekend. Drunk people tend to cook large quantities of food, then leave all the leftovers out overnight until they sober up. Drunk people also emit a lot of subtle smells for some reason. It's not like they're all normally stinky folk or anything, but... LOL

Simple bottle. Powerful stuff.
By the way:
GRAS = Generally Recognized As Safe

Anyway, I was walking through the house with a spritzing bottle of diluted Angry Orange. When the drunks (and the rest of us) woke up in the morning, we got to breathe in the amazingly fresh orange fragrance instead of, well, the alternative.

And, about the scent: this stuff is wonderful. It's not harsh or chem-smelling at all. It's softer than most rooms sprays I've ever used, but the scent lasts. That was the first thing I liked. And, when the initial fragrance does abate, you're left with an absence of all that was stinking up the air.

I've been trying to think of ways to describe the fragrance - because it's not just the "regular" orange scent you get with most air fresheners. It's more like fresh-peeled oranges and I want to say there is a honey-ish undertone. The scent is very soothing and refreshing. It's just nice. Really nice, no exaggeration.

While I was so pleased with the fragrance that I was spritzing it around my room every morning, regardless of what was in the air, the big test is what convinced me of the odor elimination power. So let's get back to that.

If you have children, you know that when they get sick, things can really go sideways. Not major sick - just the usual colds and viruses that turn those little bodies into huge repositories of ick. And sometimes that "ick" comes out in nasty ways.

In my case, I had the chance to clean vomit and diarrhea of towels that draped the seat of my car. I thought I might have to take the ride in to be professionally cleaned. Since I had towels protecting the seats and floors, the main problem was the smell. Enter Angry Orange.

Of course, I cleaned out all the towels, but that smell was hanging in the interior of my car so bad that it was impossible to ignore. I have a spritzer bottle that emits a real fine mist, but it only holds 10 ounces. The suggested dilution is 2 ounces of Angry Orange concentrate to 32 ounces of water. I was in a hurry so I used about a quarter of an ounce of concentrate to 8 ounces of water. Then I sprayed the affected areas of the car and prepared to wait. But there was no need to wait. I had to go back out to the car not 10 minutes after I sprayed and.... Wow. My car smelled better than it ever has. No kidding. Matter of fact, I am now keeping another spritzer bottle in the car just so I can periodically spray and enjoy the fragrance.

So, I'm kind of hooked on this stuff. First, I just like the smell. Second, D.J. is only 3. I'm sure I will get plenty of chances to use the Angry Orange as an odor eliminator! In the meantime, I plan to keep using it around the house, in place of the canned air fresheners we usually buy.

Lots of uses for Angry Orange, including:
  • to remove all types of Pet odor and stains including dog urine , cat urine, litter box odors
  • as a pet odor yard spray
  • a pet odor remover from concrete
  • removes odor from hard wood floors, tile & carpets 
  • for cleaning sinks, toilets , tubs & showers etc.
  • works on stainless steel 
  • to clean grills
  • to freshen garbage cans 
The concentrate makes four 32-oz bottles to use and it takes only a couple of sprays to just add a nice fresh scent to the air (or to eliminate serious odor). That's more cost effective than buying lots of air sprays and other scenting products that, in my opinion, don't work as well or last as long. Plus, I cannot emphasize how good this scent is.

Finally, and always an important factor: product is backed with a 100% money-back guarantee.

  1. they keep raising the price of this stuff, first it cost $20, then $25, now its $30...ridiculous! Ill make my own instead!

    1. Thanks for the info about the price, @amy lynn. That's crazy! If you have the recipe for making your own, let me know! :-)

      I love Sweet Orange essential oil & that could probably be used...

    1. There is still a little bit (not much) left of the one I originally had. That means it has lasted me over a year. I don't guess that's a bad bargain. I started diluting mine more to use in a spray bottle as a bathroom air and trash can freshener. Not an ideal price up front, but ...

  3. How can this be used on laundry?

    1. I recently used some on some blankets that pets had been sleeping on. Ugh! I basically mixed in about a capful with a full cup of water and added it to the water I pre-soaked the blankets in. I then ran the laundry through a full washer cycle (with an extra rinse). Odors gone and, surprisingly, there was no orange smell left. That may be because of the extra rinse or the detergent I used. Good thing, the pet stink is gone & that hadn't happened with the regular washing I tried.

      I would make sure to do a test spot on the fabric with a dilution of the Angry Orange just in case. Hope this helps.

  4. Is it safe to use with cats?

    1. It's been so long since I did all the research on this that I can't remember about its safety around pets. When I went back to the product page on Amazon, I see that in the Q&A section, another customer said that it was poisonous to pets.
