Review, giveaway and special discount: Fizzion Pet Stain and Odor Remover

 Fizzion Pet Stain and Odor Remover for Cats

Fizzion Pet Stain and Odor Remover

When Cat Daddy Jackson Galaxy recommended Fizzion Pet Stain and Odor Remover on a recent episode of My Cat From Hell,  I wanted to learn more about it. The friendly folks at Fizzion sent me a bottle so I could try it out.

I’ve used any number of cleaners and odor removers in the past, and there are a couple that I consider my go-to products, so I was curious to see how this one would measure up.

Fizzion is non-toxic and environmentally friendly – definitely a plus as far as I’m concerned. The solution is designed to go to the root of the stain and  odor, and form a shield around the stain while it works on it. Unlike enzymatic cleaners that can require long waiting periods to activate, Fizzion is said to work instantly on contact.

I don’t have any urine stains or spills on my floors, and I wasn’t willing to ask Allegra and Ruby to create them for the sake of this review, so I tested the cleaner on some old stains of unknown origin on my off-white carpet. I have used every stain remover known to man on these stains, from homemade concoctions to chemical products, to no avail, so I wasn’t too terribly optimistic that Fizzion would do the trick.

I followed the directions (spray the stain, then gently blot with a clean towel until the stain is removed). And I couldn’t believe my eyes: the stains disappeared. Without a whole lot of effort. The first time. I kept checking back at different times of the day after using Fizzion, because I thought maybe it was just the way the light hit the area that was playing a trick on my eyes, but no: the stains were gone! I can only assume that if it works that well on ancient carpet stains, it will work equally well on fresh pet stains.

The cleaner has a very subtle, fresh scent. I usually only use unscented products in my home, but this particular scent is unobtrusive enough and didn’t bother me.

Even though Fizzion is environmentally friendly and said to be safe around pets, it is not completely free of potentially harmful chemicals. It contains less than 1% sodium-N chlorobenzenesulphonamide, an organic chloramine used as an antiseptic agent, and between 1 and 2% 2-butoxyethanol, an organic solvent.  Both have some known toxicity. I’m not a chemist, but I’m guessing that by the time the cleaner is diluted with tap water (one tablet to 16 ounces of water), it is PROBABLY safe.

I tend to err on the side of caution with cleaning products used around cats. One of the most popular enzyme cleaners, Nature’s Miracle, contains 6.5% propylene glycol, and even my former go to product for pet odors, Anti-Icky Poo, contains 1% of dipropylene glycol. Bottom line: even the so-called “natural” cleaners may contain some harmful chemicals.

I recommend using common sense with all cleaners: thoroughly blot up all traces of cleaning product, and keep your cats away from the treated area until it is completely dry. One way I’ve done that is by covering the area with a heavy inverted bowl or pot. It provides entertainment for Allegra and Ruby (Look! Something new in our house!), but keeps them away from any potential fumes or chemicals.

I feel confident that Jackson Galaxy would not recommend a product unless he felt that it was safe to use around cats. Based on the performance of this cleaner on the old stains, and the Cat Daddy seal of approval, I’ll add this cleaner to my arsenal.

You can purchase Fizzion through Jackson Galaxy’s Spirit Essences website. Use code CONSCIOUSCAT for a 10% discount on all orders. And while you’re there, take a look around at some of the other products Jackson recommends, including some truly fabulous cat trees and cat shelves.

    Nowhere does it say Fizzion is natural. Read the MSDS available at fizzionclean.com. It says the tablets have not undergone animal lab testing to determine toxicity and that there is no ecological data available for this product. So how can they say it is Earth Friendly and non-toxic? There is a warning to avoid contact with skin and eyes. You must use it outdoors or in a well-ventilated place.
    I don’t think I’d want my animal licking this. Also, if it is so effective, why do they need to ad a fragrance, which is just one more thing to irritate sensitive people and pets.

    I know it’s a cat site, but I’d use it on an old stain from my dog. He’s usually very good and doesn’t go in the house but when we moved he had a few accidents, and although I spent hours cleaning up there is still a mark in each location. I would be thrilled if it got the stains away!

    I would use Fizzion to launder my corduroy jacket — which I have already laundered a number of times. My old lady cat, Snapple, liked to lie on it towards the end of her life. I guess it smelled like me. Well, since then my jacket smells, um, not so much like me. In fact, it really smells. I have looked at the Fizzion website and it says that you can use this product in the washing machine. I would love to have the opportunity to try and salvage my jacket.

    I will share Fizzion with my daughter whose recently deceased cat sprayed her front door & surrounding areas. A clean & new start for her home would be fantastic (she does have other kitties). My rugs have spots from my cat (Lucy)’s hairballs & my dog, Annie, has had several accidents. Love your blog & “My Cat from Hell”.

    I lost a 17 year old kitty last year due to renal failure and in the last several months of his life he could not quite make it all the way into the cat box because his back legs were getting weaker. I have gotten all the pee smell (thanks to repeated applications of Nature’S Miracle) out of the carpet but there are still stains that I can’t get rid of & just have to cover up with a throw rug! Would love to see if this stuff can make them disappear!!

    I have a cat who only used the litter box about 20% of the time. The other 80%, she is using the floor around the box! I will definitively be able to use this to clean up her messes. P.s. Lola is perfectly healthy, but has a deformed front leg which she doesn’t like to get litter on, hence using the floor instead!

    I would love to try this on my front door where “The boys” who by the way are fixed keep spraying it to let all the other neighbor cats know it is their house. It is so embarrassing to have my front door smell like cat whizz!

    I’ve done rescue and fostering and now that adoptions have slowed down I have a full house of kitties. So there are plenty of stains to be cleaned.

    I have a sheepskin that I made into a cat bed that one of my geriatric girls loves – unfortunately another cat took issue with it and peed on it. I would love for her to be able to use it again, it so soothes her old bones. Sounds to me like Fizzion just might be the ticket!

    There’s a spot, more like an area really, where Leonardo when he was just too little to figure out how to get from one end of the house to the other were his litter box is that became drenched in cat smell. Many efforts later, because now he is big boy and this doesn’t happen anymore, that area is not what it should be scent -wise. I’m holding out hope for Fizzion.

    The oldest of my old cats, now 17, has decided to not always pee in the box. She has had every test in the books to determine if there is a medical reason for her indiscretions. I’m happy to say she is the picture of physical health! I should probably call Jackson!

    I’ve been curious about trying this stuff, but after trying so many products that claim they can get rid of pet stains and odors, I’ll admit I’m skeptical! If a free bottle would convince me that Fizzion would actually work on red cat vomit stains on a blue carpet, I would go out and buy a case!

    I will use the cleaner to clean up cat vomit stains on various carpets throughout the house. Jackson Galaxy is great and so are you, so there could not be a better review for a product. If I don’t win, I’m going to order some.

    Like you, I have an old stain that has resisted arrest for years, so I would try it on that. My go-to stain remover for cat barf has always been Folex which works like magic, but I’m interested in trying this one esp. since it comes with the Cat Daddy Seal of Approval (LMAO)…

    With one kitty who vomits on a regular basis (CRF/CKD) and one who occasionally thinks the whole house is his litter box, I have a LOT of stains I’d like to try Fizzion on! Nature’s Miracle and Clean+Green don’t always get the stains completely out – I’d love to see if Fizzion can take care of what they left behind!

    I really like and prefer natural products to use around my 6 cats and 2 dogs. I already use Jackson’s Sprirt Essences due to your review and would definitely trust your review of Fizzion. We frequently have messes to clean up after our 8 furry kids and would love to try this product.

    I don’t like the chemicals. It may be safe, but dogs around here do like to lick things, so I don’t like to take chances.

      Rumpy, that’s why I made sure I covered it in the review. Too many pet guardians assume that because something says “natural,” it automatically means it’s completely chemical-free.

        Everything natural is made of chemicals…most are comprised of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen…so I take any “all natural” claim with a large grain of sodium chloride! That being said, I am far more likely to use products that are much less likely to interact negatively with me (I often walk barefoot about the house) and my feline friends (who always walk barefoot about the house). Currently, I am using a product called Zero Odor (recommended my veterinarians, as pet-safe and effective), which sounds to work very similarly to Fizzion; however, I have found that I can’t quite get all of the male-cat-tempting urine smell out of a couple floor pillows that I’d really rather not throw away…would be a good test.

    Fizzion sounds like a great cleaning product. It is even better because it is almost 100% safe to use around cats. If I were to win this I would use it to clean up hairball spots. My tabby, Queenie, gets hairballs occasionally and they can be hard to clean up. 🙂

    Ohhhhh! This sounds like it’s “just the ticket” for a few old, never-been-able-to-get-rid-of stains from our carpet. We’ve got some REAL challenges in that department around here including some impossible stains my predecessor Eddie left when he was sick frequently before he went to the Rainbow Bridge. Since those stains are about 12 years old, this will be a REAL challenge if it works!!! Thanks for the info Miss Ingrid and my Mom says she’d love to win the giveaway but we’ll probably ALSO order some more to keep on hand “just in case” !!

    I’m always looking for “natural” & good working chemical-free cleaners that actually do the job. This one sounds like it will do the job on older stains nothing else has touched, with the absolute minimum of chemicals at the same time.

    Your writeup has sold me enough to want to try this one, so I’ll be checking it out ASAP! Thank you!
