Feeling Clean + Green

The nice folks at Clean + Green sent us a can of their carpet and upholstery cleaner, made especially for pet stains. As you can imagine, we have our share of those. Oddly, we received the can a few weeks back and there has been no VOMIT, POOP, or PEE in the meantime (well, not in any inappropriate places, that is - otherwise we'd explode).

Luckily, just as mama was about to give up, this appeared courtesy of Kafka (yes, it's cat puke):

And he was kind enough to "produce" on the off-white carpeting that covers our place. Purrfect. So we first cleaned up the "extra" bits per the instructions, and then soaked the new stain:

After waiting for about 15 minutes, most of the stain was gone, with no scrubbing:

After another round:

The stain was almost completely gone. And mama can confirm that the smell was gone as well.

At the get-go, we weren't expecting much. Mama has tried almost every product out there that claims to get rid of pet-related stains. We were really pleasantly surprised.

This product worked really well on fresh stains - it was a bit more challenged by older ones (yes, we have a few of those around as well). It definitely faded them (even one that wasn't pet-related) and didn't do any damage to the rug itself which was great. The can itself is large but empties rather quickly (after soaking the one new stain 2x and trying out 5 smaller older stains), but maybe mama soaked them more than necessary - if you have a lot of stains to remove, definitely get more than one can. I'd say that this was a really tough test for this product, as our carpet is both lightly colored and fuzzy and therefore difficult to clean (I can hear mama whining about it now), and it performed well and as advertised.

The bottom line is that Clean + Green is a definite Buy Me product, super to have around for "accidents" - especially ones that you find quickly. It's completely safe and non-toxic for pets (a BIG plus), and I saw some at my local pet store the last time I was there. Take a look for yourself at their website, you can buy online too!

Paws up for Clean + Green! We like green/non-toxic things in our house. Mum prefers them. Tho' I must say we don't have very much in the way of vomit, poop or pee at our place anymore ... I know ... it'll happen tomorrow ...

Looks like a good product but we don't hardly have a need either. Uh-Oh, probably just invoked the Teddy Principle! Maybe we'll order one...

Hi Bogi,
thanks for the test report! So far we needed such a thing rather rarely. I open the door if I after outside must.
We have no more cat in our house. There a misfortune often happened. But one white never… perhaps should one it orders!
We like also green, non toxis things in our house.
Lots of Love
Mischka & violett

Thanks for the tip. We certainly go through our share of rug cleaners here, too!

we won some of that stuff over at Johanns place in a give away, and it works exactly like you say. And, it has no smell of its own. we like that. Everybody should get some. It really works. The other night I made a poopie mess, because mom was not listening to me. She will tell you, I really was barking, she was tuning me out.. anyhow,it was one of those poos where there is still some left on the carpet. So we sprayed that stuff and rubbed a little with a paper towel, and it all went away. we don't know where it went, but it's gone, the smell left too.
That's my Clean+ Green story.
your pal, Morgan
