Tips For Getting Rid Of Pet Odors! @Renuzit #SocialInsiders #Giveaway #Ad



    If you are a pet owner, you know that it can sometimes be difficult to keep the house smelling fresh in between cleanings.  Of course, pets are a wonderful addition to any family but they also come with their own unique scents and some of them are not very pleasant.  Although our dog is not that big, I have noticed that sometimes when I get home in the afternoon, I can smell him throughout the house.


    Recently I have been experimenting with different air fresheners to see if I could get a handle on our dog Onyx making the whole house smell like dog when we are away at work and school during the day.  

    However, since our younger son has asthma, I have to be careful that he doesn’t react adversely to the strong scents that they give off.  That is exactly why I fell in love with Renuzit Sensitive Scents.  Each scent has been specially formulated and lab-tested to ensure effective, long-lasting and pleasing scents without overpowering sensitive noses.

Here are some other tips for getting rid of pet owners:

  • Use vinegar to get rid of smelly pet odors and other lingering pet odors around the house.  You can fill an empty spray bottle and use it all over the house.
  • Baking soda makes a great dog smell remover.  All you have to do is sprinkle it over couches and rugs and let is sit overnight.  The next morning just vacuum it all up for a fresh smell everywhere.
  • Simply remove couch cushion covers, pillow cases and throws and add them to the laundry pile for a good wash.  If you do this regularly, you can really keep your whole house smelling fresh and clean most of the time.

    Renuzit Sensitive Scents can also fill your home with pleasant and welcoming aromas. They can be enjoyed in multiple ways and they allow you to experience long-lasting freshness without being too strong.  


    Their adjustable cones are perfect for small spaces and they can last up to 4 weeks. Renuzit Sensitive Scents Scented Oil Refills universally fit into any Glade or Air Wick oil warming unit so you can experience their scented oil.  We personally love their deodorizing Trigger Spray because it neutralizes tough pet odors, musky fabrics, and other unpleasant smells with immediate spray action.


    You can now fill your home with the pleasing aromas that you desire and still love and nurture your furry friend as a member of your family!

  44. My dog’s bed gets so smelly! It’s a pain in the butt to wash, but it has to be done regularly or you can smell it when you come through the front door. I also use baking soda or vinegar (depending on the surface or material) to absorb nasty odors throughout the house.
