Keeping your home smelling fresh is a difficult task, and over time upholstered furniture can pick up some nasty scents. If you have pets, it's even harder to maintain a nice-smelling home. With OdoBan, a disinfectant and deodorizing solution, you can keep your upholstery smelling fresh and clean. Whether your furniture is plagued by cigarette smoke, wet dog smell, or pet accidents, OdoBan will help you eliminate odors without harming your upholstery.

There are several different types of OdoBan, including varieties for fabric and carpets. You can find eucalyptus and lavender-scented OdoBan deodorizer and disinfectant sprays on Amazon and in stores like Walmart, Meijer, Dollar General, and Home Depot. OdoBan is also a mildewstat, making it perfect for getting rid of musty odors. The deodorizer can be purchased in large concentrated jugs or in bottles that are ready to be sprayed over your furniture, drapes, carpet, and even your bedding. 

How to eliminate odors with OdoBan

If you have the convenient spray bottle of OdoBan, simply spritz it over your upholstered furniture as needed. This should get rid of strong smells in the fabric. For larger bottles of the deodorizer, combine the solution with water in a spray bottle. If you're worried about the spray discoloring your furniture, try testing a spot in a less visible area to ensure you'll get the desired effect. Fabrics with strong pet odors will need a 1:4 ratio — mix 32 ounces of OdoBan with 1 gallon of water.

Once you've sprayed your furniture, allow the OdoBan solution to sit for 10 minutes before dabbing the area with a dry rag. Refrain from allowing your pets, or anyone else, on the furniture again until it is totally dry. With a little OdoBan and water, you'll be able to eliminate pungent odors from your upholstery.
