OdoBan Odor Eliminator Review - Got Lingering Urine Odor Out Of Carpet
(Johnson City, TN)
Chris has provided this OdoBan Odor Eliminator review, sharing his story of how he successfully removed a lingering urine odor out of his carpet.
I moved into a new apartment about 6 months ago and it had a distinct urine smell in the living room.
I tried numerous products but the smell kept coming back, especially on sunny days.
The carpets had just been professionally cleaned before I moved in so I knew that wasn't going to fix the problem.
I scanned the internet for recommendations and found a product called OdoBan.
I located some at a local grocery store and immediately tried it out. I sprayed a generous amount all over the living room.
The eucalyptus scent is very powerful and strong. I recommend leaving the room for a few hours before returning, because the smell is pretty intense.
On the bottle it says it's an eye irritant so make sure wash your hands after applying.
The first application kept the odor away for nearly two weeks.
I ended up reapplying the OdoBan Odor Eliminator 3-4 times over the next couple months and the odor has finally vanished.
I haven't sprayed any for almost 4 months and there is still no sign of the urine odor.
I haven't tried this product on actual stains so I cannot comment on its effectiveness.
For large areas I highly recommend getting the gallon of concentrate and mixing your own spray bottles. It will be much cheaper in the long run.
OdoBan can also be used as a disinfectant and as a laundry additive.
The only con about the product was the eucalyptus scent. I would have preferred something a little less harsh but in the end it got the job done, which is really all that mattered to me.
Thanks Chris for your OdoBan Odor Eliminator review. It can be very difficult to remove urine odors in carpet, especially if it has seeped down into the pad, as you can see from the fact that the carpet had the scent even after being professionally cleaned.
I would be interested in other people's experiences with OdoBan, since it sounds like it could be very helpful for many people.
***Update: I got this quick comment from Christie, who said:
I use this in my carpet cleaner. It doesn't cover the bad smell it kills it. Odoban also has made citrus and lavender scent as well as a new carpet cleaning solution. SAMS Club sells it, 2 bottles for $10 in the U.S. It's pet friendly. I love it :)
Marybeth says: We have used it forever, even comes in lavender at Lowes stores. We gave two dogs, and it worked great for our older dog when she would pee in her sleep as she had no control. We washed all her bedding in it, may she RIP.
Melanie says: We've used it forever. Only thing I've ever found to actually knock the smell of cat pee out of fabric. Just add it to the wash. Love it.
I have used the original OdoBan for probably 15 years now at least.
I have a house full of dogs and they are dirt magnets and bring it all in the house, and I have terrazzo floors.
I buy it Sam's Club because you get a gallon of the concentrate and a ready to use bottle for about ten bucks.
I use it for everything. It is a hospital grade disinfectant, deodorizer and very important to say odor neutralizer. It does not mask them it destroys them.
I wash my floors with it, use it in my laundry to disinfect and deodorize, use it as a fabric softener, use it in my toilet, use it in my bathroom for mold and mildew stains, in my car to make it smell better, and all through the house for dogs smells.
It is incredible, and is a one-of-a-kind product because it kills staph, strep, flu, etc. I recommend it to anyone with small children because it kill so many germs.
Home Depot also sells it in the gallon concentrate in different formulas, so you can look for nationwide if you don't have a Sam's club membership.
As far as the comment someone made about the eucalyptus smell being strong, it goes away in about 20 minutes pretty much, because it is an odor neutralizer.
I love the way it leaves my dog beds and my dog towels and my dog blankets smelling. It gets the dog smell out.
I could talk about this for hours but try it everybody, you can't find anything else like it on the market anywhere.

Virginia also shared her experience and opinions about this product, but unlike many of the reviewers above who used it for pet odors, Virginia used it for mold and mildew issues, showing how truly versatile this product really is.
I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this cleaner.
I normally don't have a response to cleaners so the fact that I'm writing this review and went out of my way to do so means a lot.
It smells awesome!! It's clean and sweet but not overly so.
And the clothes smelled great and as the label says no static.
I mix up a bucket with a concentration based on label recommendation of 8 oz to gallon of water and use it to clean shower stalls and wash floors and pour directly from bottle to clean toilets, swish around and let sit for 10 minutes.
I can't recommend it enough- cleans and freshens everything! LOVE IT!
Thanks for your review and sharing your experience with this product with me Virginia.
I noted that since the last time I've looked at this product, the company has added more scents than before.
It used to have only the original eucalyptus scent, but now you can also get the product in citrus, cucumber melon (only available in the concentrate, not the ready to use version) and lavender scents. I would be curious to hear which one you used.
Further, I'd love to hear from even more readers who've used this product, telling me how you used it, what scent you used, and how it worked for you.
