Most odor and stain removers focus their messaging on the messes that pets leave behind. Pets have a stubborn habit of constantly making our lives a little more smelly, after all. But what about people? Why is the tagline of ‘human urine remover spray’ so rarely used?
Maybe because we find it a little extra unpleasant. Maybe because we’d rather not think about the situations where a human urine remover is needed. Whatever the reason, the lack of explicit messaging just makes things harder when you’re trying to find a product that can get the job done.
How does UrineTrouble work?
UrineTrouble uses the natural properties of hydrogen peroxide to break down all manner of organic stains and messes.
Hydrogen peroxide is an oxidizing agent. That means it can accept electrons from other substances, breaking down those substances while itself transforming into simple water and oxygen. That release of oxygen gas is actually the reason why it famously fizzes when poured on a wound.
The key takeaway here? Hydrogen peroxide is not picky. Oxidizing agents will act upon a wide range of organic substances, including:
- Food stains
- Wine stains
- Algae build-up
And when it comes to those unpleasant bodily fluids, oxidizing agents work for both pets AND people. Hydrogen peroxide simply doesn’t discriminate in its cleaning crusade!
How to remove human urine stains
Human urine stains are removed in exactly the same way as pet urine stains. Simply:
- Spray UrineTrouble on the affected area (no mixing or diluting required).
- Let stand for 2 to 5 minutes.
- For soft surfaces, lightly blot and rinse with water.
- For hard surfaces, simply let air dry.
If you’re dealing with a particularly stubborn stain, you can leave UrineTrouble on for longer before blotting to increase the brightening effect.
Oftentimes, human stains show up in different types of locations than pet stains. Bathroom tile is particularly prone to human urine staining problems. Fortunately, UrineTrouble works just as well on hard surfaces like tile as it does on soft upholstery and carpet. And if messes are likely to be a regular occurrence, you can even apply UrineTrouble to hard surfaces preemptively each day to prevent odors from building up.
Will UrineTrouble ever ruin a surface?
Even with exceptionally tough stains, UrineTrouble will do no harm to the surface it’s cleaning. This includes dyed fabrics, hardwood floors and porcelain.
There is one big caveat to remember though: never use an oxidizing agent on marble.
Oxidizing agents react chemically with marble to cause etching, which leads to dull, rough surfaces wherever the agent was applied. While this etching can be remedied by re-polishing, that time-consuming process demands a lot of elbow grease. To save on frustration, we recommend only marble-specific cleaners be used to clean stains and messes on marble surfaces.
