Stinky sofa

Postby » Sun Sep 02, 2007 1:39 pm

HELP!! I purchased a new sofa, beautiful. Cloth, brush cotton chenille fabric. My two dogs have given it a doggy smell. What is even worse, with the "keep the pet off spray" and fabric refreshers, I've given it at worse oder. It smells up the whole room.

I was considering buying the Dirt Devil Pet extractor or should I go and rent one of those carpet uphostry cleaners at Lowe's of Home Depot.

I've tried all the spray on the the upholstry stuff from the discout stores and Pet stores. What can I do?

swood1 Welcome to Mrs. Clean's Forum.
I can definitely help you out with this one!
Did you try products that use a mineral called Zeolite?
Zeolite is a natural mineral that adsorbs moisture, fumes, chemicals and odors. It comes from volcanic ash, and is all natural, works for years and the granules can be placed back out in the sun (for 6 hours) to be recharged!
Look for the product that comes in mesh pouches that you can slip under and in the couch; this mineral is really amazing odor remover and works very well!

Products made with Zeolite can be found in the pet section of your grocery store, pet stores and home improvement stores in the odor remover section. (you can also search the web for zeolite odor remover)

For intense treatment to remove odors using this product, place some towels sprinkled with the zeolite minerals on and under the couch, and then cover the couch with a large freshly washed cotton sheet. The odor will be gone the next day. Here are the web page links to specific products that contain Zeolite. ... ntrol.html
Good luck!
