Rug Doctor Urine Eliminator Review: Trigger Spray

by Taylor

I've been using a spray bottle of Rug Doctor Urine Eliminator on several surfaces in my home for a couple of years now.

This product is an enzyme cleaner and odor remover, which is safe for use on carpets, upholstery, and mattresses, among other things (although you should always test in an inconspicuous area first).

If you've got either pets (which I don't) or young kids (which I do) this is the type of product that can find a use in your home.

That is because it is designed to be used when you have some nasty accidents in your home, such as pet stains, potty accidents (of either the pee or poop variety), vomiting, or other similarly yucky stuff involving bodily fluids.

In these types of instances enzymes, such as what is contained within this product, are helpful to eat away at the yucky stuff to remove the stain and smell, especially for items that cannot get washed in the laundry.

The directions for this product are quite simple. When you've had some type of accident remove any solids or excess liquid, and then spray this product on the fiber surface liberally.

Especially with wet accidents, such as peeing through the sheets into the mattress (yes, unfortunately this happened when we weren't using a plastic mattress cover a couple of times) you need to spray quite a bit of the cleaner to penetrate as far down as the offending liquid did.

Then, do NOT blot or wipe the product off. The enzymes need time to work. Instead place a damp white cloth over the area you sprayed with the cleaner to help keep it from drying out, and let it sit and work for at least 24 hours.

The instructions say that for some accidents a second application may be needed, but I have not needed this personally.

After the time period, I have been happily surprised to smell no yucky scent has remained. I did sometimes need to lightly scrub to remove colored stains, and also to keep the carpet fibers from feeling so stiff though, since they dried with all that stuff in them. However, this is much better than smelling pee or vomit each time you walk near an area.

We've used this product in our house for potty accidents and times when the kids didn't quite make it to the bathroom to throw up when they were sick.

It has helped keep things sanitary and odor free, and allows me to focus on my child without being so worried about how I'm going to clean something up that I get mad at them.

They always feel horrible, as small children do, when they make such a yucky mess, so a bath and cuddles are given instead of being aggravated, since I know I've got something that will work to deal with the mess.

This product has been a staple in my house, and it is available in most major retailers with the other carpet cleaners. I think I bought my bottle at Walmart, but I don't recall for sure anymore.

I have only personally ever used the spray bottle version of the product, but I did notice that wipes are also available. I would assume these wipes would only be used for surface accidents. With anything that has soaked through a carpet backing, or deep into the surface of the upholstery or mattress I would think the spray would be much more effective, although I can't say for sure never having used the wipes.

Has anyone else used this product, or another one that is designed to remove urine and other types of bodily fluid smells and stains from fibers, such as carpet and upholstery? If so, I'd love to hear your reviews and experiences as well. You can share your urine cleaner reviews here, or read others that have already been submitted.
