If you are a pet lover and a proud pet owner, it is inevitable to face the issue of pet odor and litter odor round the house. As much as we love our pets, waking up to or returning home to stinky pet smells is something no one likes. Luckily, besides odor neutralizing sprays and cleaning products, pet friendly scented candles and specifically pet odor eliminator candles can do the odor control job effectively.
Scented candles are not just items of aesthetic delight, they have real utility around your house when it comes to getting rid of unpleasant smells, specially odor eliminator candles.
Here are some of the ways pet odor candles work:
Create a Welcoming and Enticing Ambiance for Your Guests
If you have finicky guests, having super sensitive olfactory coming over for dinner, you would be highly conscious (and maybe a little embarrassed) about pet odors!
Pet odor eliminator candles are quick and sure shot fix for getting rid of of funky pet smells from a room and replacing them with a pleasant and enticing fragrance. However, a word of caution here! Don’t go overboard with scented candles, odor busting or otherwise, when it comes to guests. Some people are hypersensitive towards fragrances and may end up developing a headache.
How do Pet Odor Eliminator Candles Absorb Odors
Vegetable wax candles, as opposed to paraffin wax candles, have excellent odor eliminating properties. Here is how they work:
A scented candle comprises things like wax, chemicals, colors, pleasant scents, essential oils and other elements. When these purpose-specific scented candles are lit, the pleasant fragrances in them get diffused in the air in the form of vapors.
Odors bind themselves with oxygen ions carrying a positive charge. Thereby, pet odor candles when lit work through creating ions that carry negative charge. So when candles made from vegetable wax are burnt, they neutralize the odor filled oxygen ions having the +ve charge.
Once the odor is neutralized, the pleasant scent of the candle takes over the job and gets diffused around the room. The result is a beautifully fragrant ambiance that would make a room livable, breathable, and actually inviting.
Eliminate the Source and Don’t Just Mask it with Pet Odor Candles
Do understand that maintaining a good cleaning routine is the key towards getting rid of stinky pet smells. This means:
- Cleaning the litter and cages regularly.
- Bathing your pet dog or cat regularly.
- Discouraging your pets from climbing up on your upholstered furniture when they are wet.
- Cleaning up furniture, carpet and upholstery in case of an accident.
- Using protective covers that can protect your upholstery and mattress and prevent pet odors, hair and moisture from penetrating in them and settling there.
In addition to all these steps, you can use pet odor eliminator candles around your house to perk up your space on a budget. Scented candles don’t cost much. They come in colors, shapes and scent variety that are endless!
