    Simple solution, or biological washing powder.

    Simple is sold in PAH, some supermarkets and online (inc Ebay) We use it to de-pee our patio and it works wonders.

    can I ask?

    Is it the simple solution in the trigger spray and if so how do you use it on the patio to remove the odours? Do you dilute it at all?

    This has really excited me (sad I know!) as I have been trying to get rid of the urine smell on our patio for ages!

    Many Thanks for your help

    Could you use white vinegar? Its a great natural disinfectant and as long as you can air well to let the chip shop smell dissappear it should completely neturalise the urine. I use it on all my bunnies hutches and litter trays.

    Its the Simple solution in the big bottles. I guess it's the same as in the trigger spray but in larger quantities.
    We buy it per gallon on Ebay.
    We then dilute it (I think the measurements are on the bottle but we just chuck some in) in a watering can with hot water (It doesn't need to be hot but my theory is it kills germs) and 'water' the smelly areas.

    We let it dry there and have had no ill effects but of course always read the bottle! It really removes the pee smell, and we have a lot of pee smell to remove, with 2 female Great Danes!

    I couldn't use white vinegar, but then i'm highly allergic to it, darn it.

    1001 pet stain and odour remover, it's a bright yellow trigger bottle. It also smells fantastic! Avaiable from wilkinsons, for a couple of pound. Or B&Q (at about double the price of wilko)

    Or biological washing powder diluted a little.

    I would use biological washing powder but I also use Mistral odourkill which comes in loads of lovely smells like bubblegum, mint and baby powder. It can be used inside or out and can be bought cheaply on ebay.

    I've just used a product by BioSmart Solutions Limited. Its a brand new company and has completely got rid of my puppy's wee smells. They can give you a quote at sales@biosmartsolutions.co.uk, very reasonable and has solved my issue!

    Another vote for Simple Solution, wouldn't be without it! I swap the squirty cap for a trigger spray as I think it's much easier to use that way. I've also just bought a similar product as our pet shop was OOS of S.S. It's called 'Clean 'n Safe Stain and Odour remover' made by Johnson's Veterinary. This one came in a trigger spray bottle already. Roughly the same price around 4 for 500ml. Both products are very good at cleaning up other nasties like vomit or any other shall we say 'organic soiling' !!!

    No enzymes and it is American but you can buy it over here

    Naturvet do a number of cleaners under the Odokleen name- they are Alkyl Dimethyl Benzyl Ammonium Chloride based and designed to kill the bacteria/smells rather than masking them. They are lawn/plant/pet/clothing friendly.

    There are concentrates so you do need to dilute them first.

    http://www.naturaldogs.co.uk/store/naturvet-dog-and-cats/cleaners-and-deoderisers.html

    There are both cleaners and cleaners/deodorisers.

    I use this one in my home

    http://www.naturaldogs.co.uk/store/naturvet-dog-and-cats/cleaners-and-deoderisers/odokill-cleaner-480ml.html

    and this one which connects to the hose pipe for my decking/garden (even lawns)

    http://www.naturaldogs.co.uk/store/naturvet-dog-and-cats/cleaners-and-deoderisers/yard-odour-killer-concentrate.html

    The yard odourkiller has a tab on it that you have to bend back to turn the flow switch, took me a while to work that out when I first used it...
