Smell of wee from patio
« on: July 17, 2021, 09:39:57 am »
Hey

I was wondering if anyone had some magical products or concoctions they use to get the smell of dog wee off a slabbed patio areas.

Our two french bull dogs have using the area as a toilet for a while now as we couldnít let them out in the garden. They kept esacaping and found it so much fun to chase the chickens around - the chickens didnít seem to share the fun.

Weíve finally managed to get the entire perimeter fenced off now and I want to give the patio a really good clean. We jet wash it every week and haves used various things like Jeyes fluid and washing powder and they do help but the sun seems to bring the smell out.

Iíve seen a few things online but you never know if they will be any good or not.

Thanks

Bicarbonate of soda is my usual go to for removing wee odours, sprinkle it over the area, leave for a couple of hours then hoover or sweep it up. I'm not sure if it would work outside (I've only ever used it indoors) or what sort of quantity you might have to use though?
Good luck!

If bicarb doesn't work, Young Living make an essential oil called Purification which is magic.  Just a drop or two mixed with water and sprayed over the area will not only take the smell away, but also make it unappealing for dogs to use again.

The ingredients are Citronella, Lavandin, Lemongrass, Myrtle, Rosemary, and Tea Tree if you want to have a go at making some yourself. (Lavandin is the oil from Lavandula hybrida, which is significantly more pungent than Lavender, which is from "English Lavender", Lavandula angustifolia).  They publish the ingredients but not the ratios, so I can't help you with the latter!

Thanks. I think bicarbonate would work
In a similar way to bio washing powder but not sure. Might give it a go but I think Iíd need to try find some in bulk :)

Great thank you Iíll take a look. Those ingredients sound like they might keep flys away to. We always seem to get them
In the house this time of year so might try some of that indoors too.

Sterilising Fluid! Our Flo goes out a side door and we are constantly cleaning it up. We have to because it's only a small area and I need accurate pee stick readings. She won't always let me catch it so as long as the floor is clean, the sticks are good.

Halter train the cattle to keep them quiet but watch your back when they come a'bulling! Give them all names even those you plan to eat. Always be calm. Most importantly, invest in wellies with steel toe caps and be prepared for the clever cow who knows where the toe caps end!!

Miltons too expensive. We use it neat! Home Bargains or B&m version, 89p litre. I use it neat in the lambing pens, ewes don't mind it. Clean out in winter, usually unable to use too much water, put that down, sheep come back in several hours later. Clean smell, very weak chlorine!

I'm sure many solutions will work, but you should try "bio" washing-machine liquid @DenisCooper .   Not sure what dilution to recommend, but don't apply it without some degree of dilution in water!!  :D
