The components that make up OdorXit Concentrate are created from plant extracts and
generally fall into the "Essential Oils" category
of chemicals. It is safe enough to drink but we don't recommend it. OdorXit Concentrate mixed 30 parts water and 1 part concentrate is safe to use on you or your pets' fur to remove skunk smell, your pets' kennel to eliminate urine odor, and it's safe enough for your pet to be back in his kennel before it is dry. It also works on urine in litter boxes, on all flooring materials, clothing, and any water tolerant material.
OdorXit Concentrate, in it's concentrated form, may be a minor irritant when in comes in direct contact with eyes because it has a minute amount of isopropyl alcohol in it. So it is not a toy and should be used as directed. For use to eliminate odors, water must always be added to the product. It is a necessary part of the chemical reaction with the odor source.
OdorXit Concentrate has nothing added as a perfume or fragrance. In general, even water based essential oils often have an
odor. So it is with OdorXit Concentrate, but the odor is not strong or
long lived and can be completely eliminated almost instantly after it
has neutralized the odors it has come in contact with by misting a small amount of unscented ammonia mixed
with water in the area where the OdorXit Concentrate was used.
OdorXit Concentrate includes nothing added for the sake of added fragrance.
How It Works: OdorXit Concentrate uses Absorption, Bonding and Counteraction approach's
to solving odor problems. By definition OdorXit Concentrate is a contact
chemistry. IE the OdorXit Concentrate solution must come in direct contact
with the source of the odor and the source of the odor must be prone to
react with the one or more of the components of OdorXit Concentrate.
That is exactly what OdorXit Concentrate does.
When the Concentrate is mixed with water and applied to an odor source
like urine residue (urea salt). The water acts as a catalyst to foster
a reaction between components of OdorXit Concentrate and the urine residue.
This is just like what water does with urine residue and hydrogen sulfide
to make the very smelly mercaptan gas (the stuff that really stinks). In fact
a very small amount of mercaptan gas is actually produced while the OdorXit
Concentrate is working on other areas of the problem.
The reactions involving odor causing agents and OdorXit Concentrate are
not easily reversible under any naturally occurring conditions, so the
neutralization of the odor sources are for all intent and purposes complete.
Preparing OdorXit Concentrate for use is very simple.
For most applications OdorXit Concentrate should be diluted with plenty of water.
- On horizontal surfaces, 1 part Concentrate to 30 parts of tap water is appropriate.
- For applications where the solution is to be applied to vertical surfaces it should be diluted 1 part concentrate to 15 or 20 parts of water but never less than 15 parts of water.
- When concentrate is used in a washing machine, 1 or 2 caps full (1/2 to 1 ounce) of concentrate is all that is necessary, especially if the washer is stopped for 15 to 30 minutes before the machine spins out the wash water containing the Concentrate.
- On grass, dirt, gravel, etc. use a hose end sprayer that mixes the contents of the dispenser jar about 30 parts water to 1 part jar contents, and mix the OdorXit Concentrate 1 part Concentrate to 4 parts water in the dispenser jar. You need lots of water to get the Concentrate to the odor in dirt and gravel.
Actually applying OdorXit Concentrate to various types of odors and on
various types of materials varies widely and is described in greater detail
elsewhere on this web site. Check out the Odor Wizard on the home page or the
Application Notes > OdorXit Concentrate
Keep this and all odor control products out of reach of children. OdorXit Concentrate has a very long shelf life if kept out of direct sunlight, which will oxidize and neutralize it active ingredient in 1 or 2 months.
