Enzyme cleaners are becoming popular among pet owners who want to go natural against stains and odors. Unlike traditional cleaners that contain potentially harmful chemicals, the amino acids in enzyme cleaners break down stains into more manageable substances before consuming odor-causing bacteria.
We’ve done an extensive background check on a variety of these products for you and came up with the best enzyme pet stain cleaners and odor eliminators in 2021. All the items target odor and stain removal from liquid and solid pet waste and can clean different surfaces.
You can make a gallon of solution using the 8-oz concentrate or four 32-oz spraying bottles using two tablespoons of the concentrate per bottle.This biodegradable and non-toxic product is made from oils extracted from orange peels, pineapple, and coconut. It can remove ammonia and methane-smelling animal odors from not just home indoor surfaces like beddings and mattresses, but also vehicle interiors, stables, barns, and animal shelters. It works on fabrics, hardwood, tiles, carpets, and grass.

OUT! Advanced Stain and Odor Remover works well on both carpet and wood floors and has enzymes for killing odors. A little goes a long way so it doesn’t require repeated treatments. It may leave an unusual residue behind on some surfaces.
The bacteria in the solution eat the stain until it biodegrades and evaporates, restoring your surface to its original, clean state. Moreover, the odor left behind by your pet is completely eliminated, discouraging them from urinating or pooping in the same spot.
With 30 years in the business, Simple Solution offers this convenient cleanup spray with a nozzle that can scatter the solution in three ways: mist to cover surface stains and large areas, stream to clean crevices, or foam to apply over embedded or thick messes.

There’s a different product for tiles, marble, and concrete
You can get rid of pet odors or stains left on upholstery, carpets, drapes, car interiors, litter boxes, or cat and dog beds using the 32-ounce Amaziing Solutions Pet Stain and Odor Remover.
While affected surface areas can be deodorized in five to ten minutes, tougher stains and smells—particularly those left on a carpet—can be removed by soaking it in this non-foamy “bio-enzymic solution” for an hour before drying and vacuuming. No scrubbing is required. Amaziing Solutions are also certificatied by the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) as “Green Certified Cleaning Solutions.”
Just like Amaziing Solutions, Bubba’s is listed among CRI’s “Green Certified Cleaning Solutions.” It’s also useful as a shoe odor remover, upholstery cleaner, and laundry stain pre-treatment solution.
The dormant bacteria in Bubba’s enzyme cleaner makes it last longer than most odor enzyme sprays, which usually only contain active bacteria that slowly die off and lose effect from the time it gets out of the factory. Bubba’s enzymes only activate when introduced to organic food sources such as feces, urine, vomit, or even human waste. The gallon-size “Terminator” can even remove old stains from pets and litter box odors.
