My Review:

My oldest cat, Adrina, tends to occasionally have bathroom accidents when she can’t make it to the litter box in time.  I have multiple litter boxes to help her have more options to get there in time, but accidents still happen.  So I was very happy to be asked by Cute & Cuddly Pet Supplies to try their Bio-Enzymatic Odor & Stain Eliminator.

I live in an apartment so when I moved in I had to pay a hefty security deposit plus a pet deposit.  I am a very clean person and obviously don’t trash my home.  However, with two cats my home tends to get dirty fast and I can definitely see my deposit return dwindling.  Thankfully, Bio-Enzymatic Odor & Stain Eliminator by Cute & Cuddly Pet Supplies makes my carpets look like a pet never even lived in here.

I like how easy this product is to use.  I sprayed the stain with Bio-Enzymatic Odor & Stain Eliminator by Cute & Cuddly Pet Supplies and let it soak for about 10-15 minutes as directed.  Then I used a clean white towel to soak up the excess water and another to remain over the stain.  I then came back and checked on it about 3-4 hours later and the stain was gone!

I like that this product works on both new and old stains.  I also really like that this product not only removes the stain it also eliminates the smell.

I really like that this product has a pleasant clean scent, not like most cleaning products that smell like bleach.

There are quite a few steps to using this product, but it really works – so it’s totally worth it!  I have experimented with the steps and have found that after letting the product soak in for 10-15 minutes, you can scrub the stain and it does come out just as well as letting it set covered for 3-4 hours. 

My girls have been curious about this product and have sniffed the area that I’ve sprayed.  I’m not sure if they’re checking out the scene of their accident or checking out the stain remover.  Regardless, the area has got more attention, but after a few good sniffs throughout the day, they seem to move on.

I really like that this product is 100% natural and has a non-toxic formula. Therefore, this product is safe to use around children and pets.

I will absolutely continue to use this product when stains occur.  I really like feeling safe using this product and not having to worry about my girls getting sick if they inhaled or licked the spray.  I would also recommend this product to fellow pet owners as this product, Bio-Enzymatic Odor & Stain Eliminator by Cute & Cuddly Pet Supplies truly works and helps keep your home clean and smelling fresh.

Happy Earth Day!

Today is Earth Day, the annual event meant to raise awareness about Mother Nature’s health and the efforts being made to protect it. Environmental groups in countries all over the world are gearing up to take their message of good stewardship to millions of people.

Earth Day events commemorate what is considered the birth of the modern environmental movement. The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970 on college campuses across the U.S. and was the invention of Gaylord Nelson, a former Democratic U.S. senator from Wisconsin whose idea for Earth Day was born out of watching the momentum of the student-led anti-war protests of the 1960s and his frustration with D.C. gridlock over enacting environmental protections. "It was a gamble," Nelson said of the movement. “But it worked."

It was Earth Day that largely led to the U.S. passing legislation such as the Clean Water Acts and to the formation of the Environmental Protection Agency.

Here are some interesting and inspiring quotes I found related to Earth Day:

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”
~ Albert Einstein

“I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things we could use.”
~ Mother Teresa

“Suburbia is where the developer bulldozes out the trees, then names the streets after them.”
~Bill Vaughan

“A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people.”
~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

“You can't be suspicious of a tree, or accuse a bird or a squirrel of subversion or challenge the ideology of a violet.”
~ Hal Borland

“And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.”
~ William Shakespeare

“After a visit to the beach, it's hard to believe that we live in a material world.”
~ Pam Shaw

“As crude a weapon as the cave man's club, the chemical barrage has been hurled against the fabric of life.”
~ Rachel Carson

"Those who contemplate the beauty of the Earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts."
~ Rachel Carson

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."
~ Henry David Thoreau

“To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour.”
~ William Blake

"Now I see the secret of making the best person: it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth."
~ Walt Whitman

"Trees are Earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven."
~ Rabindranath Tagore

“We have met the enemy and he is us.”
~ Walt Kelly

“Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.”
~ Cree Indian proverb

Fall is my favorite season in Los Angeles, watching the birds change color and fall from the trees.
~ David Letterman

He that plants trees loves others beside himself.
~ Thomas Fuller

“The wealth of the nation is its air, water, soil, forests, minerals, rivers, lakes, oceans, scenic beauty, wildlife habitats and biodiversity… that’s all there is. That’s the whole economy. That’s where all the economic activity and jobs come from. These biological systems are the sustaining wealth of the world.”
~ Gaylord Nelson

Until a man duplicates a blade of grass, Nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge. Remedies from chemicals will never stand in favorable comparison with the products of Nature, the living cell of a plant, the final result of the rays of the sun, the mother of all life.
~ Thomas Alva Edison

“Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.”
~ Theodore Roosevelt

“Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil, and you're a thousand miles from the corn field.”
~ Dwight D. Eisenhower

“Environmentalists have long been fond of saying that the sun is the only safe nuclear reactor, situated, as it is some ninety-three million miles away.”
~ Stephanie Mills

"Earth laughs in flowers."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.”
~ John Muir

"When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands, flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty."
~ John Muir

“Keep close to Nature’s heart ... and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.”
~ John Muir

"When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world."
~ John Muir

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtfully committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
~ Margaret Mead

"That's the thing about Mother Nature, she really doesn't care what economic bracket you're in."
~ Whoopi Goldberg

“For 200 years we've been conquering nature. Now we're beating it to death.”
~ Tom McMillan

“Today I have grown taller from walking with the trees.”
~ Karle Wilson Baker

“A true conservationist is a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children.”
~ John James Audubon

"Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”
~ Lao Tzu

"An understanding of the natural world and what's in it is a source of not only a great curiosity but great fulfillment."
~ David Attenborough

“Sooner or later, we will have to recognize that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother Earth, but the planet can live without humans.”
~ Evo Morales

“I believe alien life is quite common in the universe, although intelligent life is less so. Some say it has yet to appear on planet Earth.”
~ Stephen Hawking

“Why should I care about future generations? What have they ever done for me?”
~ Groucho Marx

“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi

“We are all here on earth to help others; what on earth the others are here for I don't know.”
~ W. H. Auden

I also suffer from fatigue and drowsiness.  I mixed this product, goPURE Naturals 100% Pure Peppermint Oil, with Lemon Oil, and Orange Oil.  I applied the mixture to the back of my neck and then inhaled the oil residue on my hands.  It was very invigorating and helped keep me awake and alert.
