Cat Owners Stink Finder Products And Tips

Updated on July 15, 2016

An Excellent Tool To Hunt Down Cat Urine

Many cats that normally use their litter box can also spray urine in inappropriate places in the house.

If you have this problem, the first thing that usually alerts you is the smell. Sometimes the smell is hard to pinpoint. You can track it to an area, but you may not actually be able to see it.

So now you have to sniff closely to the wall or furniture, trying to figure out where it is so you can clean it up. But how can you be sure you got it all?

What Is Stink Free Good For?

The UV Stink Free light is great for so many things. It will detect not only urine but other contaminates such as saliva, feces, vomit, blood, semen.

The light will also detect the ultra violet strip in paper money bills.

It can be used to help find shards of broken glass, and can also detect ringworm, bedbugs and scorpions (according to their website).

Take one of these black lights into your bathroom, turn off the light, and what do you see? If there are any males in your home, you may be shocked.

Time for a thorough clean, to get all of what cannot be seen without this light!

Warning:

The manufacturer says to check the material you are going to clean off for color fastness. If it is not color fast, this will fade what you are using it on.

Be sure to test on the material that you are going to clean in an area that will not be noticed first, just in case it does fade. This is a good test to use on any urine removal solutions.

Stink Finder Worked for Me.

Finding this product was a miracle worker for me! I was in a never ending cycle of cleaning and cleaning and still not being able to get all the cat pee cleaned up. Once I bought this light, I could see the major pee spot but it also illuminates all the tiny splatter, spray and dribble marks.

You need to have the room darkened, but it does not have to be completely dark. So if you discover cat urine earlier in the day just block most of the natural light on the area in question and you should be able to track it down with the Stink Finder light. It works excellent in a completely dark room.

Once you have located the spots, you can use the odor remover on it.

Stink Finder Worked For Me!

Let me tell you that the Stink Finder has been the best tool to hunt down the cat urine!

No more guessing or wondering why the cat keeps going back to that same spot. Find that urine and clean it up.

You will probably be surprised at all the little spots of cat pee that you didn't know were there. Finding this product was a miracle worker for me!

Being a responsible pet owner is so very important.

Are your cats spayed or neutered?

This is a nice handy small size. If you find the regular Stink Finder light too big or bulky, this is a nice option.

Or if you already have an odor remover product you like, but you want the UV light, you can buy this one.

This is also great for travel. Why? Well how about checking out that hotel bathroom or bed area for cleanliness?

Even the carpet where you will be walking in your hotel room. The table, the chair, anything you will touch?

      took in a stray cat and by the time I found the pee, which was behind a potted plant, my hardwood floor around the plant had turned black. any suggestions?

      Lol...well luckily no one is peeing around my house where they should not be but I can see how this product could really benefit those with kitties who may have an accident here or there.

      I haven't heard of this before. However, it sure can be handy for pet owners that have this problem. I had a male cat that used to spray when he was young but thankfully quit as he got older.

      Hmm, is there a separate stink finder for dog urine? I have older dog that leaves us surprises ever now and then...

      Before my little kitty passed away ( I miss her so much!) We got one of these stink finder lights. Honestly I don't know what I would have done without it!

      It really got the cat pee under control too, because sometimes what we can't smell, they can smell. And when that happens they keep peeing in the same spot! I also learned what her favorite pee haunts were. LOL One time the stink finder also showed me when she hit the wall as well as the carpet. I would not of known otherwise.

      What will they think of next but as a cat owner, it's a good idea. Our cats do not have accidents but they are getting older and this might become something that we will need. Thanks for sharing this.
