A new year, a new review opportunity! Many people make resolutions to live a healthier life, to declutter and do a thorough cleaning so how appropriate for us to review Nature's Miracle Stain & Odor Remover.
Here are a few benefits as described on the site:
Suitable for carpet, floors, or any hard surface
Neutralizes organic odors and removes stains
No rinsing necessary
Tip: It also works as a stain treatment for laundry (think pet bedding, blankets, etc.)!
I think that even the most well-trained of dogs are bound to have tummy troubles. As for my household, spot cleaning has progressed from a constant task to a daily chore to being as needed each week. Finn's accidents still run the gamut :-/ while Cooper gets sick only after the occasional over-indulgence. For these reasons, I have found it is always best to be prepared with a carpet cleaner and something that is safe for hard surfaces. In both products, I look for stain-removal properties as well as an odor eliminator/neutralizer. You don't want to see or smell the stain after cleanup but, perhaps most importantly, you don't want your pup to find the same spot again.. and again..
Earlier this month, I tried Nature's Miracle Stain & Odor Remover on an hours-old pee spot (rug), a newly discovered dried pee spot (hardwood), an old stain from an upset tummy (yuck) that I could never get to disappear, and (lucky me) a fresh poop that was so thoughtfully placed on the edge of my living room area rug. Here are the results:
- The pee was a straightforward job. While I do believe that Nature's neutralized the odor and left the rug stain-free, it left the hardwood floor a bit tacky even after it dried overnight. (4 stars)
- The throw-up was a very stingy stain that I had tried to remove several times already. And, alas, after 2 go-rounds with Miracle Stain & Odor remover, the stain remains. Perhaps it is a little lighter. Perhaps I should have taken a before and after ;)
- The poop was definitely a challenge.. It took 2 days of applying solution, soaking up the stain, allowing to dry and using a srub brush to dissolve the residue. It's still about 15% visible but a vast improvement from the onset.
Other chewy.com shoppers rated this product an average of 5 stars; I would have to disagree and say 3.5 stars.
