Category: Domestic Cleaning
Printed in the Guardian the tips are likely to help domestic cleaners keep households odour free.
Animal lovers who need to clean up after their pets have been advised to tackle stains with a variety of substances.
Common household products that can help stain removal include lemon juice, tea tree oil, borax and baking soda.
However, pet owners have been urged not to use detergents which consist of strong-smelling chemicals because they may encourage cats to return and stain the same areas.
Householders have also been warned against the use of hot water for eradicating stains as this may strengthen the odour.
Soda water was highlighted as the best cleaner for light stains whereas older ones could be tackled with normal household cleaner and lukewarm water.
Safe4 Odour Killer was also recommended for removing strong smells such as animal odours and cigarette smoke.
The detergent works by using organic oils to safely breakdown, rather than mask, smells, according to its makers.
Householders can hire professional London cleaners to help eradicate animal smells.
