Rated 5 out of 5Â by dcline Did Exactly What it Says
My dogs don't like to go outside when it is raining, so they will often mark the bushes around our patio just outside the back door. In the humid summer months, this leaves a foul odor hanging over the otherwise pleasant outdoor living area.
I ordered the gallon size rather than the 32oz size because you get quadruple the product for only slightly more. I also didn't need the sprayer that is built into the 32oz bottle, as I have my own. Unfortunately, there are no instructions on the packaging or the manufacturer's website indicating what the appropriate ratio (or range) should be. Based on the instructions for Simple Green's multipurpose cleaner (which can also be used outdoors, but may harm grass and plants), it appears that any concentration, even undiluted, is safe and effective. I therefore applied at a concentration of 1:16 (8oz of product per gal), and had no issues.
The product left a bit of foam on the patio, but it quickly disappeared as the patio dried. I also applied the same concentration on the bushes, grass, and mulch immediately around the patio area, and have seen no adverse effects on any of the vegetation (including bermudagrass, lemon balm, holly and boxwood shrubs).
There was a distinct fragrance noticeable immediately after application, but it was not unpleasant or chemical-smelling. The odor dissipated as the area dried, and does not overpower the lemon balm or mint. Most importantly, the dog urine odor is not masked but actually eliminated.
If Simple Green provided concentration recommendations on the label or their website rather than just directing users to refill the 32oz bottle, this would be a nearly perfect product. If you have your own applicator, using the one gallon refill size at a concentration of 8oz/16tbs/48tsp per gallon worked well for me.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by magicalblessingAli Excellent Product.
I have a large back room porch where my elderly dog spent alot of time before she passed. Needless to say there were many accidents and the smell has lingered even though i open up the windows. This product has been a life saver. The scent is pleasing, and it actually removed the smell did not just cover it up. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by PJCC Makes spring cleaning for pets quick & fun, smells fresh!
This gallon liquid container came with a sealed top, like an aspirin seal. I liked that for safety, in unsafe times. This is the refill for a 32 oz sprayer.
I don't own the 32 oz sprayer. I prepared it in a generic 32 oz liquid sprayer for a hose. As I was cleaning the patio cat litter station, I poured the solution on the plastic floor mats and sprayed it with a hose on jet spray. All of the pets were off the patio, the directions say not to spray your pets. However, I didn't spray it on the cat tents.
Our patio is huge. It's full of pop up pet tents, cat toys and lattice which makes it hard to clean. Hosing is the only option. In Florida, on a hot day, it dries quickly. The smell is citrus fresh.
Safe & Natural Bacteria is a listed ingredient. I find this a claim more than a specific ingredient. After researching at the FDA., I didn't find warning letters about claims, recalls or adverse reaction reports about Simple Green. The one claim on this product is that it's an odor eliminator. It does that.
In heat and humidity, when smells are amplified, this was a welcome refresher for a large indoor/outdoor patio.
