Snuggled up on the couch or jumping through the air in excitement, pets offer special companionship everyday. For many of us, our furry friends are part of the family. Whether you consider yourself a dog-person, cat-lady or something in-between, our pet pals can be the joy we find after a long day or help us relax with cuddles.

    Hi Liz! We have not tried this on upholstery, so we’re not sure if it would work. We recommend spritzing a small amount on the back of the couch or chair and checking for any change.

    This sounds like a great recipe! We have two dogs. I’m wondering if it would be good to use on upholstery on our couch. What do you think?

    This stuff is the bomb! I’ve had some black spots on my carpet for months, not sure what they were. Now they are gone. Great recipe.

    This sounds like a great recipe. I’ve used straight hydrogen peroxide on carpets to remove cat throw up stains. It works great! This, however, covers other accidents, too. Thanks! I’d love to say I can’t wait to try it, but. . . :)
