    This product is incredible! I was ready to buy a new couch. We have a dog who occasionally pees when excited. I didn’t realize how bad the old urine smell was! Yikes! I used this product and my couch smells brand new. I highly recommend this product. Thank you!

    • OdoBan

  2. Vincenzo

    Omg I love this stuff. Hands down the best scent and works great. Washing my kitchen floors and bathroom floors.. I will always buy this..

  3. Christa Poole

    I found this during the pandemic in the original at Sam’s Club and I’ve been using nothing but since. Great product. I’ve used it in the laundry, shower, my floor and car. I even have my work using it now. Hint: I work in a salon and disinfection is everything. I’d love to try the other scents as well. I just found it in the spray bottle and I rave to everyone about it. My doggy doesn’t make it to outside every time because he is getting older and I love to know its all clean after said and done. If you haven’t tried it you’re missing out.

    I work in a hospital and purchased a gallon of the Eucalyptus scented concentrate to clean my 3M full face respirator I wear now that we’re required to wear a mask and face shield at times when working with patients. I clean the respirator after every patient but wanted to be able to do a deep clean one a week. I have a 5 gallon bucket with the diluted cleaning solution in it and once a week I soak the mask in it over night and then rinse it thoroughly. The mask smells like Odoban for the entire week. The scent makes you want to put on the mask. The stuff is amazing. I just wish I could find the other scents nearby. Be nice to change up the scent from week to week.

  6. Kelly lehmkuhl

    awesome product, would really like to try all other sent options, currently can only access eucalyptus, not really my favorite. Pleased include links as to where I may purchase the others. Thank you for such a great product.

  7. Nikki

    I love Odoban for pet urine, especially cat urine. I use it as a general cleaner for the kitchen and bathroom and on fabrics. It saved my couch after the cat peed on it.

    Please make an unscented version.

  8. Carolyn Quin

    This product is amazing. I have used it for many, many years and am always more than satisfied with the product.
    Right now I haven’t been able to find Odo-Ban at any specified dealers. CAN I BUY DIRECT?

    • OdoBan

  9. Taylor Martini

    Love this stuff! Use it in the car and house! Smells amazing and love that it’s a disinfectant and a fabric air freshener all in one and the scent isn’t overwhelming. It’s perfect!!!

  10. Sat

    Great for cat odor and spray. Worked when nothing else did. Sprayed a heavy concentration on old carpet that reeked and completely removed the odor after if dried. Use it on upholstery, cloth and anywhere odors, infection are. Doesn’t take the color out of fabrics. Home depot carries it.

  11. Pam g

    Best product I have ever used for multi-purpose.
    Especially animal smells

  12. EssentiallyUs4

    What a happy discovery!
    I was looking for a disinfectant, with the shortage of “L” spray in the Coronavirus craziness. Searched on Google, and was happy to find the large jug in eucalyptus scent at our Home Depot. I have used it in our car to wipe down the steering wheel, door handles, etc., and general cleaning at home. Yesterday, I tried it to wash our bedsheets. Amazing cleaning, and bedding smelled lovely and fresh. So economical for all it is used for! Very happy

  13. Lisa

    Please please please make unscented other than the scent (that I can’t use around certain people) I love it!

  14. Punkydoodle

    I just discovered Odoban and wish I’d known about it years ago. I love the eukalyptus scent (which smells like baby powder to me). As a test, I sprayed the Odoban on a really stinky, sour smelling kitchen sponge and after a few minutes of soaking, that sponge smelled amazing. Not a hint of yucky smell was left. So far I’ve used Odoban on my couch, mattress, dog bed and in the area of the litter box. I’ve also washed a load of stinky towels with it and there’s no more mildew smell, just a clean fresh scent. I also plan on using this on our sleeping bags that have been in storage all year. I don’t know what they put in this stuff but it does more than just cover up the smell, it eliminates it.

  15. Lisa Baker

    Great for : Cat Urine
    Sprayed Odoban to multiple sites of cat urine smells from underneath our stairs, hallway and other areas disappeared. No bad orders after applying to stairs wood to and underneath, drywall and concrete floor. I had prayed before with bleach ,even soaked floor . My home became toxic,of course. A friend showed me the Odoban because thier cat sprayed thier almost new furniture and it worked. NO CAT PEE SMELL.WOW.
    This product saved $1000’s from replacing areas of drywall, stairs and concrete floors

  16. Human

    I cant seem to find a straight answer.. May i have a list of pet viruses that Odoban kills?

  17. Jesse Duval

    I've heard that Odoban works very well. My husband and I are moving and are taking our mattress. However, it smells strongly of cigarette smoke and pet odor. Can you recommend the best product to get these smells out of our mattress?

  18. Kimberly

    I have a 16oz bottle. How much do I mix in?

  19. E Oshera

    I had a severe reaction and ended up in urgent care due to this product. I was informed by the nurse that they had seen numerous other patients come in with severe allergic reactions caused by this product. This product was used in a commercial carpet cleaner to clean the carpets at my place of employment.

  20. Annamarie Wilfahrt

    I have an unfinished basement and one of my cats has been using a scrap piece of carpet to urinate on. I have removed the carpet. I’m wondering if I can use Odoban on the cement.

  21. Christie L. Auck

    I use a dilution of Odoban over our outside limestone to neutralize all our dog odors and have been very satisfies. I am wondering if the active ingredients can have any possible negative affect on dogs to cause them to develope lymphoma if it is used A LOT on their outdoor play/pee area over a period of several years?Smile

  22. Sharon E

    Camping World uses it so I bought a bottle for my RV and I am hooked! I did buy the concentrate from Amazon and didn’t read directions.. I inhaled it while spraying it and got a burning sensation in my nose and throat. Should I seek medical attention?????

  23. Kate LaFave

    Can I use on Acrylic walk in tub?

  24. Miranda

    Love this product! I do have a question though. We had our dishwasher cleaned out and they put odoban in the trap due to some gross build up and smell. Everything is cleaned now, but I noticed after running a couple loads of dishes with our dish soap, they are smelling like odoban. This includes our children’s plastic supply cups. Is it still safe to use them?

  25. Holly

    I used the concentrated disinfectant for the first time this week. My brother bought a house that has been empty for 2years. the previous tenants had pets that left lots of messes & smells behind. We used odoban to eliminate urine smells all over the home. We also used it to remove mold & mildew that covered the entire kitchen. IT WORKED THE FIRST TIME ON EVERYTHING! I am amazed at how wonderful this product is!! It could easily replace every other cleaning product I use. hands down, the best cleaning product i’ve ever used. Bravo!! (and thank you) Grin

  26. Dessairé Wells

    PLEASE send me coupons! I’ve used this stuff since the late 80’s early 90’s!! I’m not finding all the scents and finding the refill sizes is getting to be a rarity in my local stores!! Please let me know where I can get the refills and all scents! I love this stuff so much

  27. Shayne

  37. Casey X

    Grin undenialably the BEST product that I have ever used. I had a pet urine odor in a wool carpet that nothing else would remove. Used Odoban & water and sprayed the area, and the smell is gone.
    Occasionally I’ve smoked in the house and Odoban has completely removed the cigarette odor.
    Leaves a nice clean smell that lingers. I LOVE this product!

  38. Valerie

  40. BayPony

    What is the proper concentration to use for stall mats?

  41. Dana Conley

    I love Odoban. I use it to eliminate pet odors, to kill germs, and as a fabric refresher. The smell of the cleaner is not bad and it really is a miracle worker.
