Have you not paid much attention to Anti Icky Poo urine cleaner because your cats are litter box angels? Even if your cats have 100% perfect litter box habits you may not want to overlook Anti Icky Poo! Here are some of our favorite, unique, creative and oddball, but very practical, uses for it:
- Pre-soak clothes, towels, bedding, rags – anything deeply soiled, oily, greasy, gross or smelly
Do you find that sometimes your clothes just don’t smell fresh as daisies after washing them? We can relate especially for clothes that are only washed in cold water, nor do they ever go in the drier, as they eventually just don’t feel or smell right. Anti Icky Poo’s specially bred enzymes and friendly bacteria love to gobble up all kinds of icky things including the smells from fabric which accumulate in the fibers, like clothing. Each time I wash my clothes, sheets, towels and kitchen scrubbies I give them a soak in the washing machine using the “soak” setting before they get washed in mild clothes soap. For weekly soakings use a few tablespoons of Anti Icky Poo in cold or warm water – never hot water because it’s too hot and will kill the enzymes/bacteria. For items that are need something more heavy duty which are smelly and otherwise funky use about ¼ cup. Once the washing machine has filled with water open the hood or stop the process to let everything soak longer than what the machine would normally soak for. For these longer soakings give it an hour or two. After soaking let the machine complete its cycle, then proceed with a wash in soap – and you can opt for hot water at that point.
- Cat barf on your bed and blankets
Even the most perfectly behaved and healthy kitty will get a fur ball and will decide to up-chuck it someplace where you’ll see it and admire it! And often that’s your bed. Remove the chunky bits from the comforter or blankets then follow with a soaking and washing as described above.
- Cat barf on your purse or shoes
Cat barf on other hard objects such as your cell phone or remote control
If the feline love of your life proudly made the deposit on a hard object like your cell phone, purse or shoes remove the evidence with a rag and give a few sprays to the item keeping it moist for a few hours. You’ll need to use your judgement about how many sprays to apply or for how long to let the item be damp with Anti Icky Poo before using a clean rag to remove any remaining barf bits and traces of Anti Icky Poo.
- Cat barf on the sofa, your mattress, the carpet and whatever creative place your cat has selected to leave this special gift
Remove the bits of barf then spray with Anti Icky Poo. You want to keep the surface moist for several house which means repeated light mistings. You are going for damp not soaking wet.
- Red wine
There are two things that remove freshly spilled red wine on carpet. One is to pour a bottle of white wine over it step back and watch the red lift up and turn the white wine rose’ color. Science Fun! But if sacrificing a bottle of white is sacrilegious then pour Anti Icky Poo on it. You might want to agitate it with fingers to work it deeper in the carpet pile. Let it soak for an hour or so, then blot with wet rags. If you have an electric carpet cleaner you can pour Anti Icky Poo into it or just use water.
- This is the one time pouring that your money down the drain is smart and ultimately cost effective!
Anti Icky Poo loves nothing more than to eat up soap scum and grease, so it makes a fantastic and non-toxic, non-corrosive drain cleaner! Anti Icky Poo can’t dissolve hair but getting the grease and soap scum out could help push any hair through the system. Once a month grad a full bottle and go to all your drains beginning in the kitchen. Pour ¼ bottle down each drain and allow it to sit for an hour without running any water. After an hour run warm water and know that the local plumber will not like you anymore! This is a great use if you’ve got an old/opened bottle of Anti Icky Poo – thank it for cleaning up cat pee then dump it down the kitchen sink or the shower drain.
