How to use BackyardFRESH

When it comes to treating urine odours in your backyard, it is not always necessary to make sure the urine deposit is removed entirely because many pets will frequently visit your garden beds, synthetic grass or their favourite spot. Permanently removing urine deposits on these areas on a continuous basis could be a costly exercise!

BackyardFRESH is not a urine remover, it is a high performance, safe odour control solution. It’s a great cost effective alternative to our urine remover urineFREE when treating urine odours outside on commonly used areas. 

Prior to application

BackyardFRESH or urineFREE?​

We recommend urineFREE outside when treating urine odours & stains on balconies, wood work or garden furniture and anywhere you want to permanently remove the urine odour & stain.

BackyardFRESH can be used on synthetic grass, cages, bedding and litter boxes, garden furniture, cars, boats, garbage bins, for ongoing maintenance.

Should I use both products?

If you are treating an area that is frequently visited by your pet such as synthetic grass, a combination of both products will be the most cost effective solution.

We recommend that BackyardFRESH be used in conjunction with urineFREE, in between urineFREE treatments for affordable long term relief of urine odours & urine deposit build ups underneath your synthetic grass.

Old stain or new stain?

Removing old urine stains and new urine stains may require to follow a different process, depending on the area and the type of stain. Usually old stains will need to be detected with our urine detector, among other things.

Have a look in our FAQ to see if your type of stain requires a specific process.

Check for colourfastness

When treating fabrics and textiles such as cushions and seats, always make sure to check that the fabric is colourfast.

Spray a bit of product in an inconspicuous area. If colours do not run, it’s safe to use BackyardFRESH.

Stain proof your fabrics

Prevent future urine (and other) stains from ruining your home with a non-toxic, eco friendly, water based fabric protector to stain proof all your fabrics, upholstery, carpets and rugs around the house.

protectME is a very efficient and safe product, unlike other “mainstream” fabric protectors which are formulated with toxic chemicals.
