Product Review: Ewww Pawsitively Clean™ by Bissell®

Parental Unit and I were thrilled to have the opportunity to try a product by Bissell called: Ewww Pawsitively Clean™ . We were asked by our friends at Dogtime Media to review this one specific product, we were provided with one bottle of Ewww Pawsitively Clean™ by Bissell®,  and asked to write an honest review for our readers. We were not compensated in any way, and the opinions herein are only those of Parental Unit and me.

By way of introduction, this is just one product of many in Bissell's arsenal of weapons against pet accidents (Yes, let me confirm, speaking for all of my dog and cat friends out there to all of you Pet Parents: These are accidents! We do not do this on purpose!).

If you'd like to peruse the full list of Bissell's products, check out this link right here:
You'll get a kick out of their choice of product names, like Yecch, Dang, Ick, Yikes and others, that really describe the type of accidents you pet parents deal with everyday.

Here's  a picture of  Ewww Pawsitively Clean™ by Bissell®    

Now, you have to understand that there aren't a lot of urine or other accidents of that type in our house, but Bella, the cat and I do spit up now and again. Unfortunately, we usually wait until we get to the upstairs carpeting to do so. Below is a picture of two of Bella's spit-up stains. (Aren't you thrilled that we took a photo of this?)

Anyway, Parental Unit thought she'd better read the directions before she started spraying, and needless to say, they were helpful. First, you must give the container a good shake, then choose whether you want to use a "spray" or a "stream" by turning the nozzle accordingly (we think this is a really good feature-no need to spray far and wide when you have a small, concentrated stain).  So for these two small stains, Parental Unit used the "stream" setting.

Then she covered it up with a clean rag and waited 10 minutes. When she returned, the stains were gone, and she wiped the area with a wet cloth to blot up any excess remover. 
After the area was dry, she vacuumed, and this is what it looks like now.

Clearly, something worked pretty fast! According to Bissell, it was the "fast acting cleaning and deodorizing agents that started working immediately."  
And Parental Unit also gave it what she called the "sniff test", where she bent down to the cleaned carpeting and inhaled deeply. Although she looked ridiculous and wouldn't let me take a picture of her doing this, she was relieved to discover that any odor was gone, including the scent of the product. 

One note: Parental Unit is very sensitive to odors of any kind, and she always chooses products that are unscented.  So for her, this product might have been a little too heavily perfumed, but  she did notice that any scent dissipated both from the air and the carpeting almost immediately.

According to Bissell, Ewww Pawsitively Clean™, "permanently removes organic stains from urine, feces and other accidents and is safe for use on carpets, upholstery, pet beds, litter boxes, or any water safe surface."

Hi Bocci-
My mom liked your review. She has seen these in one of the pet stores and really wondered it they worked! We think they should name one "uh-oh!" Thanks for letting us know!

Hey Kirby,
I think you've got a winner there for a name-sounds perfect!

Thanks for the review, Bocci. Our humans have been known to awaken in the dark at the unmistakable sound of one of us deciding that the grass we ate on our late evening walkie wasn't so tasty after all -- so they need a product like this!!!

We'll check out the other listings.

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry
