Earth Friendly {Pet} Products Review

Earth Friendly Products has been a leader in the eco-concience revolution for decades. If you've shopped around for plant based laundry detergents, you've probably seen their Ecos line in many organic markets, grocery stores, and even your local Wal-Mart. But did you know that Earth Friendly Products has much more to offer than just laundry detergent? Dish soaps, bathroom and kitchen cleaners, carpet cleaners, and even multi-purpose cleaners; all plant based and never ever tested on animals. The soaps used in their detergents and cleaners break down in water before they can harm any plant or aquatic life. They are also biodegradable, non-toxic, phosphate-free, petroleum-free, and have a neutral ph. [You can read more about Earth Friendly Products here.] It seems like they have every kind of cleaning product you could possibly ever need (oh, and did I mention they have eco-friendly ice melt?), so you can just about imagine how excited I was when I saw their pet product line!

Earth Friendly Products sent us a bottle of their Pet Stain & Odor Remover and a container of their Pet Wipes to try out with Venus and Ocean.

The Pet Stain & Odor Remover spray is for use on stains and odors caused by pet accidents, urine, blood, food, vomit, and other natural waste by-products. We presented the ultimate test for this spray with a spot in Gabe's room. Gabe managed to pee outside his crib a short while ago, and in the process of trying to clean it up, he made a game of trying to pee in the same spot on the carpet for three nights in a row. The spot kept spreading as I tried blotting and scrubbing. It no longer smelled like pee, but the color and placement of the spot made it a little obvious what had caused it.


After less than five minutes, the spot was almost completely gone. I think I went back to check Gabe's room 20 times throughout the rest of the day to make sure it didn't magically come back, and it didn't! I am still in shock over this. This spray is amazing! It leaves a nice citrus scent too.

Before

After
The Pet Wipes are perfect for in-between baths. Perfect for use on your pets face, paws, anus, and ears. These wipes are also great for controlling allergen-causing dander.


I don't like giving full baths because I worry about dry skin and irritating Venus' skin due to her allergies, so these have been great. Especially for Miss Ocean, who loves to roll around outside in the lawn. Another use that I found particularly helpful was using them in conjunction with an upset tummy. Ocean seems to have a very sensitive tummy, and I hate letting her straight in the house when she has the runs, because she sits down right away. Ugh! But I've been keeping this wipe tub right by the door and it has been one of those items that I swear I don't know how I made it without before now! I loved that the wipes had a nice fresh citrus scent as well.

  1. I don't have pups anymore. I miss them. But you have such a cute sweetie pie! We really should start paying more attention to what we put around our animals. They are totally innocent.

  2. Those wipes would be great for my dog. Giving him a bath these days is torture since he hates the water, but a wipe down every day would help keep him fresh!

  7. So great to have eco products that actually work, especially on hard stains like this. We need to protect our animals. They deserve the same kind of non-toxic products we would use for ourselves.
