  • Handles even the most significant of pet messes like a charm, removing the stain and the odor without issue.
  • Great for everything from stairs and carpets to upholstery and similar equipment.
  • 48oz gives you a much larger tank than many of the options out there of this compact size.
  • Excellent suction power, pulling out the mess of even the worst spots and sections. Deep clean that is easier to manage and effective when combined with a good detergent.

  • The sprayer becomes easily clogged up so make sure you clean it after every use to avoid any problems with suction or efficiency.
