Pet parents are familiar with the unmistakable smell that lets them know their beloved pets have used an area of the home as a bathroom. Particularly when it comes to urine, it seems like the stench will never go away! Pet parents also know the myriad other odors animals in a home can create. Luckily, it’s Angry Orange Pet Odor Eliminator to the rescue!

If you’re not familiar with this product, it’s a pet odor eliminator that comes in either a concentrate you mix up or a ready-to-go spray. Derived from the oils in orange peels, it works not just to cover the scent of pet pee, poop, and other pet odors but to dissolve them. Most pet owners seem to enjoy the smell of Angry Orange, but it was incredibly overwhelming for others. While this product doesn’t clean stains away (though the brand also has stain cleaners), this pet odor eliminator seems to get the job done quickly and efficiently!

How To Use

Angry Orange Pet Odor Eliminator is simple to use. If you have the ready-to-go spray, it’s a simple matter of spraying it. If you go with the concentrated version, you’ll need to mix 4 tablespoons with 32 ounces of water in a spray bottle. Then you’re good to go!

If you’re using this product where a pet has had an accident, simply spray Angry Orange onto the spot once you’ve cleaned up your pet’s mess. Give it a minute or two to work its magic, then wipe away any excess. You can also spray this product into the air as an air freshener.

Where To Use

The number of places you can use Angry Orange Pet Odor Eliminator is pretty amazing. You can use it on:

  • Carpet
  • Wood floors
  • Tiled floors
  • Furniture
  • Cement
  • Bedding
  • Mattresses
  • Sidewalks
  • Basements
  • Grass and bushes
  • Barns
  • Chicken coops
  • Plastic

And, as previously stated, you can utilize it as an air freshener, as well!

There are a few places you can’t use it, though. One place you shouldn’t spray this product is on leather surfaces. You also shouldn’t use this in an oil diffuser. Finally, do not put Angry Orange in any carpet cleaning machines. It isn’t made to work in them, and several people claimed their vacuums and cleaning machines were ruined after they tried it anyway.

Safety Around Pets & Kids

When it comes to kids, you don’t need to worry about them having any adverse reactions to Angry Orange Pet Odor Eliminator (unless, perhaps, they have an orange allergy). Because this product uses natural oils and has no chemical scent, it’s safe for use around children.

When it comes to pets, this product is non-toxic, although birds and cats may be a bit sensitive to the levels of certain ingredients. Cats, in particular, tend not to enjoy the scent of citrus. Though the product is safe for use around pets, it’s advised you keep your animals away from treated areas until they’ve dried, just in case. There was at least one instance reported of a pet having an (until then unknown) orange allergy that reacted negatively to this product.

Finally, never, ever use this product directly on your pets. Essential oils, like the natural orange oil used here, can cause your pet to become ill if used on their coat, skin, or paws.

Odors Only

The Angry Orange Pet Odor Eliminator gets rid of nasty smells only, not the stains that go along with them. Angry Orange does have a second product, Scented Enzyme Stain Cleaner, that is supposed to eliminate both odors and stains. But if you’re only using the Pet Odor Eliminator, you’ll need a secondary cleaning product to get rid of the stain.

What the Users Say

The Good

It’s important to check what other people have to say about a product before purchasing to ensure it works as it says it does. When it comes to Angry Orange Pet Odor Eliminator, most reviewers loved the product.

  • Smell: As far as the smell of Angry Orange Pet Odor Eliminator goes, most people seemed to highly enjoy it (even if they said their homes suddenly smelled as if they lived in an orange grove). Because it uses oil derived from orange peels, the scent is natural and doesn’t have chemical undertones. Plus, the smell is long-lasting, typically lingering for up to 5 days.
  • A Little Goes a Long Way: According to reviewers, a little Angry Orange Pet Odor Eliminator goes a long way. One woman used the same bottle for 4 years! When it comes to the concentrated version, an 8-ounce bottle will make 128 ounces of spray. Whatever you do, don’t add more of the concentrated formula to water than the directions indicate. A few people did that and ended up keeping windows open for several days because the smell was overwhelming. If you’re using the ready-to-go spray, you’ll only need to spray a little for it to be effective.
  • Quickness: Angry Orange Pet Odor Eliminator works quickly. After spraying it, most people found the smell of oranges was stronger than that of odors within an hour or two. And, usually, by the next day, the foul odors were completely gone, and only the smell of orange remained.

The Not-So Good

Every product will have negative aspects, and Angry Orange Pet Odor Eliminator is no different. Luckily, there only seemed to be a single issue on which people were largely divided.

  • Smell: While most people loved the smell of this product, there were also people who hated it. They found it incredibly strong, and a few even got headaches from it. The scent of Angry Orange seems to be one you will either firmly love or hate.
