Does your home have a scent that announces the presence of your dogs before they’re even seen? Does it smell like your furkid is riding in the car with you… even when he’s not? Well, you’re not alone! And there’s a fix! We found it – in a bottle of odor eliminator called NOse Offense.
Created by a father and daughter team, NOse Offense is all-natural, organic, and green. The company asked us if we’d like to review their product and the team decided I was most qualified. (Something about having the stinkiest pets? Should I be offended?!)
So I put NOse Offense to these (un-Scientific) Stink Tests:
Test 1: My couch. Yes, I share my couch with my furkids. So it has, over time, absorbed some less than desirable pet scents. I use sprays that work well, but they’re loaded with perfumes that mask odors. So for my first test, I misted the couch cushions with NOse Offense, waited a few seconds, leaned in for a big whiff and smelled… absolutely nothing. No perfume, no chemicals, and best of all, no odors!
Test 2: Dog Beds. The results were the same here as they were for my couch. Dog smells were completely eliminated from the beds and no flowery or citrusy perfume smell left behind. I will obviously still need to wash their beds when they get dirty, but NOse Offense totally took care of the stinkies and I can go longer between washing.
Test 3: Litter Box. I know, I know, this is a dog site…but many of us have cats (including me!) so I may as well include this test, too. Perhaps the most offensive pet odor of all is the litter box. I misted NOse Offense over it after scooping twice a day to keep cat box odors at bay. For the record, this is now where I keep my own bottle of NOse Offense for daily use.
Test 4: Emma the Bullmastiff. Perhaps the toughest test of all, Emma was due for her weekly bath and was stinking up the joint! NOse Offense is completely safe to spray the product on a cloth and wipe down your pet’s coat. It won’t replace her bath, but it definitely got rid of her stink! This would be a great solution in a pinch if surprise visitors pop over and I don’t have time to bathe her!
How does it work? NOse Offense is actually an odor neutralizer, not a deodorant or perfume. It doesn’t mask the smell with another scent – it bonds with the stink molecules to eliminate them. In addition, the company’s goal is to provide effective products that are 100% safe for our pets. NOse Offense is safe, non-toxic, organic, biodegradable and manufactured to be 100% free of enzymes, alcohol, phenol & phenol derivatives, phosphates and phthalates.
For a more detailed explanation of why phthalates in air fresheners are considered dangerous to humans and pets, take a look at a report from the National Resources Defense Council here.
I can, without hesitation, recommend NOse Offense for Pets Odor Eliminator. I’m now using it in my own home everywhere I was previously using Febreze and other room sprays. Learn more about NOse Offense, or purchase it here.
