    Default Yard Odor Remedy ?? I can't find the post !

    I saw a post, I think last week, talking about a concoction put into a hard sprayer, that knocked down the odor in the yard, as we have a small area fenced off for the 'pee patch' it REALLY could use this concoction... especially with the windows open!

    Thanks !

    I will caution that if it is Simple Green, take care. I am highly allergic to something in simple green. It's Instant asthma in a spray bottle for me. With bully allergies and breathing difficulties I would hesitate to try it knowing how it affects my breathing.

    I have heard lime works well, but have no experience with it.
    Vinegar is a natural and safe deodorizer too.

    I can't stand the smell of Simple Green myself. I do know powdered lime does work.

    I think that was Lisa? @desertskybulldogs

    Here in the Northwest, our friend rain normally keeps stuff like this well-managed. This year, however, has been the awesomest summer ever and Bo's fav spot in the gravel path to the front porch is well....ripe. I mean really ripe. Like, I-can't-open-that-window-when-the-sun-shines-directly-on-it-ripe. Since I don't use an chemicals in the yard, I've been just remembering to "rinse the rocks" everytime I water the rosebushes over there. It's helped --- but barely. Hopefully the rains will wash it away. If it were something intolerable (we do put up with a lot don't we?), I might try baking soda - which certainly couldn't hurt anything.

    Someone had said, laundry detergent, bleach and put into a lawn spray bottle (that you put on the end of the hose) I *THINK* they were the ingredients, but I dont know what ratio or if there was something else added

    well i was looking this up and found this. is this what you were talking about @RaRett if you put in yard smell in the search box all several old threads come up about it.

    I have found that biological washing powder helps on concrete and flagging though...I scrub my yard with a solution of biological powder which I dilute in hot water then top up with cold....then rince the soapy suda away and spray with a lemon juice and bicarbonate of soda solution and leave to dry naturally. Hot water makes the smell worse as does bleaching products xx

    We have tried everything, but now we are using the natures miracle stuff. The stuff for carpeting. We use a yard sprayer and fill it with that and spray. Seems to work pretty well compared to the special yard ones. We are also just watering the areas more often in between too. I must've missed that post rarett so if you find it please let me know!

    If it has grass don't use bleach sp Clorox or if its one of the ingredients, it will kill your grass. And some other plants.
