FAQs

Q. Where can I buy OdoBan products?
Find the product, then click the "Where to Buy" expandable tab or contact customer service at 800-841-3904.

 

Q. Can OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) be mixed with other chemicals?
No. Mixing OdoBan concentrates with anything other than water (in accordance with directions) can be very dangerous and voids all disinfecting and sanitizing claims.

 

Q. Does OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) kill HIV (AIDS virus)?
Yes. OdoBan has been tested against HIV (AIDS virus) and kills the virus in 60 seconds on hard nonporous precleaned surfaces.

 

Q. Does OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) eliminate dust mites?
No. It is not on the label, and OdoBan may not be used in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

 

Q. Does OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) kill some pet viruses?
Yes, OdoBan is effective against Avian Influenza virus, Avian Infectious Bronchitis virus, Pseudorabies virus, Canine Distemper virus, and Newcastle's Disease virus.

 

Q. Does OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) kill mold and mildew?
No. OdoBan is a mildewstat. A mildewstat controls, prevents, and inhibits mold and mildew growth, but it will not kill what is already there. To use OdoBan correctly on mold and mildew, first use a mold and mildew remover, rinse with water, then spray OdoBan on a regular basis to prevent its return.

 

Q. OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) is a disinfectant and sanitizer, what is the difference?
The terms, disinfection and sanitization, refer to the test methods used to determine the concentration and contact time required to reduce bacteria to a desired level. With disinfectants the test organism (bacteria) is exposed to the solution for 10 minutes (on hard surface – stainless steel rings) at room temperature in accordance with the AOAC Use Dilution method to demonstrate efficacy of products intended to kill bacteria. The method requires 100% kill in 59 of 60 tests.

With Sanitizers the test organism (bacteria) is exposed to the solution for 60 seconds (on hard surface – glass squares) at room temperature in accordance with the ASTM Non-Food Contact Sanitizer method to demonstrate efficacy of products intended to kill bacteria. The method requires 99.9% kill over parallel control in 5 of 5 tests.

OdoBan is also tested as a fungicide and mildewstat. With fungicides the test organism (fungi) is exposed to the solution for 10 minutes (on hard surface – stainless steel rings) at room temperature in accordance with the AOAC Use Dilution Method to demonstrate efficacy of products intended to kill fungi. The method requires 100% kill in 10 of 10 tests.

 

Q. Will OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) disinfect laundry?
No. OdoBan will only deodorize laundry. OdoBan disinfection claims apply to hard non-porous pre-cleaned surfaces.

 

Q. Will OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) sterilize tools and instruments?
No. The term “sterilize” is incorrect since sterilization is a method used on critical devices (such as surgical instruments, implants, catheters, and needles) that will enter tissue or the vascular system. Chemical sterilization uses high level disinfectants (such as 2% glutaraldehyde) which will destroy or eliminate all living bacteria, fungi, and their spores when used as directed (Usually requires thorough cleaning and over 6 hours contact time at specific temperatures). OdoBan will however “disinfect” tools and instruments as directed on the label.

 

Q. What types of Disinfection does OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) apply to?
Disinfection is classified into three categories – High, Intermediate, and Low Level. High level refers to disinfection required for semicritical items that come into contact with mucous membranes or nonintact skin. Intermediate level refers to some semicritical and noncritical items. Low level refers to noncritical items that do not come into contact with intact skin. OdoBan is a low level hospital disinfectant. Low level hospital disinfectants will destroy or eliminate the major hospital bacteria listed on the label. OdoBan is intended for use on hard non-porous precleaned environmental surfaces that come into contact with intact skin only. Barber and manicure tools are noncritical items, which may be disinfected with OdoBan.

 

Q. Can OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) be used on animals?
No. It is not on the label, and OdoBan may not be used in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

 

Q. Can you bathe in OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator)?
No. It is not on the label, and OdoBan may not be used in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

 

Q. Can you clean a birdcage with OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator)?
Talk with your veterinarian about using the product and the sensitivity of your bird(s). If it is recommended, rinse cage afterwards with water, and allow to dry completely.

 

Q. What is the most effective deodorizing method for carpets?
One of OdoBan's features is that it cleans and deodorizes. In many cases the cause of the odor (urine, food, flood damage, sewage, etc.) requires removal. OdoBan provides the most effective odor control when using the clean/extraction method.

 

Q. Will OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) damage your carpet?
No. OdoBan will not damage carpet when used as directed. Note: OdoBan should not be used on fourth or fifth generation carpet due to the fact that it will void the warranty. ( Fourth Generation carpet has an application of fluorochemicals that modifies the surface tension of the fiber making nylon fibers more resistant to soils. Fifth Generation carpet has been chemically treated with acid dye resisters to block most common household food and beverage stains.) If OdoBan is accidentally applied on fourth or fifth generation carpet, rinse thoroughly with water.

 

Q. Can you use OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) in a carpet steamer or extraction?
You can use OdoBan in a Carpet Extraction cleaning machine, but not a Steam Cleaner. OdoBan should not be used in appliances which heat the solution. Carpet cleaning machine vessels and lines should be rinsed with water before and after using your OdoBan solution to prevent mixing chemicals from the previous use.

 

Q. Can OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) be used on car upholstery and carpets?
Yes – the same as upholstery or carpets in homes. Allow to dry before sitting on treated fabric.

 

Q. Can OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) be sprayed on pet bedding?
Yes. Allow to dry before allowing pets to use treated surfaces. However, the most effective and long-lasting odor control will be accomplished if the bedding material is washed after a 10-minute soak in OdoBan diluted to 32 ounces per gallon of water.

 

Q. Can OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) be used in the laundry and, if so, how much?
Yes. 4-8 ounces per load during the final rinse to deodorize offensive odors.

 

Q. Does OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) act as a fabric softener when used in the laundry?
Yes. OdoBan Odor Eliminator has similar chemical properties as fabric softener and just like other softeners, OdoBan is not for use on children's sleepwear or other garments labeled as flame resistant, as it may reduce flame resistance.

 

Q. Can OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) be used in shoes?
Yes. If the shoes are water-safe, spray shoes with 2 - 4 ounces per gallon dilution. However, if a more serious attack method is needed to eliminate the odor, wash the shoes after a 10-minute soak in OdoBan diluted to 32 ounces per gallon of water. Always allow to dry thoroughly before wearing.

 

Q. Can OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator)  be used for the "Athletes Foot Fungus" in shoes?
Our label directions are for deodorizing shoes. Since shoes are not always hard and non-porous, we cannot make a disinfection claim. It would be better said, "OdoBan is an effective fungicide against Trichophyton interdigitale (the athlete's foot fungus) when used on surfaces in areas such as locker rooms, dressing rooms, shower and bath areas, and exercise facilities."

 

Q. Can you spray "dry clean only" clothing with OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator)?
No. Do not use on any surface, which is not water-safe.

 

Q. Can OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) be used on skunk odor?
Yes. It may be used on porous surfaces such as upholstery, drapes, carpet, and hard non-porous water-safe surfaces. Do Not use on animals.

 

Q. Will OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator)  hurt a garden?
No. However, this is not an EPA approved use pattern.

 

Q. Can you spray OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) on artificial and live plants?
Yes. You may use on artificial plants made of plastic. Silk flowers may not be water-safe. OdoBan use-solutions should not harm live plants but intentional use on live plants is not an EPA approved use pattern.

 

Q. Can OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) be used in septic tanks and holding tanks?
Yes. OdoBan is a disinfectant, therefore overuse may disrupt anaerobic bacterial digestion in a septic tank. Normally use-levels of less than one quart for each 300 gallons of waste flow is considered safe for a septic tank.

 

Q. Can OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) be poured into a commode or basin?
Yes.

 

Q. Can you use OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) in porta-potties (portable chemical toilets)?
Yes. Cover bottom of tank with water and add 3-6 oz of OdoBan. Add additional 1 – 2 oz as needed.

 

Q. Can you use OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) on an air conditioner filter (i.e. spray to deodorize through the a/c vents)?
Yes. A/C blower unit should be off when spraying filter to avoid breathing spray mist.

 

Q. Can OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) be used in a refrigerator to help deodorize?
Yes - use diluted @ 3-5 oz. per gallon. Higher concentrations should be avoided. Dilutions over 5 oz. per gallon may cause plastics to swell allowing OdoBan to penetrate making it difficult to rinse. Note: Food contact surfaces should be rinsed with water.

 

Q. Can OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) be stored in a dish used in the kitchen area (i.e. Tupperware)?
Not Recommended. A couple of reasons why this is not recommended are:

  • A container may be used for food purposes without proper cleaning.
  • Children or pets may try to drink liquid left in food containers. Note: Some plastic containers may be damaged by concentrated OdoBan. Additional Note: OdoBan should not be stored Styrofoam containers.

 

Q. Can you use OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) on walls and flooring, will OdoBan (The Original Odor Eliminator) eat (damage) paint or finish?
OdoBan will not damage water-safe items when used as directed. (i.e. concentrated OdoBan may damage some plastic or vinyl surfaces.)

 

Q. What is pH?
All water-based solutions can be measured for their pH. The pH scale, which runs numerically from 0 to 14, is used to indicate whether a solution is acid or alkaline. On this scale, a solution that has a pH from 0 to 6.9 is considered to be an acid. A solution that measures from 7.1 up to 14 on the pH scale is considered to be basic (or alkaline) in nature. A pH of 7.0 is neutral. The pH of OdoBan is approximately neutral, and its use-solutions are noncorrosive to plastic, vinyl, synthetics, enamel, tile and most common metals.

 

Q. How do I calculate dilutions...and why?
OdoBan is an industrial strength concentrated product designed not only to be a multi-purpose cleaner, disinfectant, and deodorizer but to be economical for the customer. Dilutions of OdoBan have been formulated and approved by the EPA and work best at the dilution ratios stated on the label.
Dilutions are either described as ounces per gallon or parts OdoBan to water.

MEASURING OZ PER GALLON:

To dilute OdoBan in oz. per gallon, measure the recommended ounces in a nonfood measuring device and fill to one gallon. Sometimes parts are easier to think about when making smaller than 1-gallon dilutions.

CALCULATING FROM OZ PER GALLON INTO PARTS:
Divide the number of ounces required on the chart into the number ounces in 1-gallon (128 oz.).  
For example: 8 oz. per gallon
To determine the ratio needed, divide 128 ounces (1 gallon) by 8 ounces.
128 divided by 8 = 16
  
The number "16" represents the total number of parts, therefore, add 1 part OdoBan to 15 parts water. 

MEASURING IN PARTS:
You can measure in any unit of measure you like, such as tablespoons, ounces, cups etc... From the calculation above, 16 is the total of any unit of measure you select. If you would like to make 16 ounces (1 pint), measure 1 ounce of OdoBan and 15 ounces of water. This gives you 16 ounces of an 8 oz. per gallon dilution. Remember the what ever unit of measure you are measuring that will be your total, for example 1 cup + 15 cups = 16 cups equal 1 gallon of 8 oz. per gallon use-solution.
The conversion table below can help.

CONVERSION TABLE TO OUNCES:
2 tbsp. = 1 fl. oz.
½ cup = 4 fl. oz.
1 cup = 8 fl. oz.
1 pint = 16 fl. oz.
1 quart = 32 fl. oz.
1 gallon = 128 fl. oz.

 

Q. I'm not sure what dilution ratio to use when the instructions are given in a range?
In the beginning, it is always best to use the least amount of OdoBan necessary for a particular application. Use higher concentrations only when you need it.

 

 

Q. How do you mix OdoBan to make the Air Freshener dilution like in the Ready-to-Use spray bottle?
A. The ratio to make the OdoBan air freshener dilution is 5:1 or 22 oz. / gallon. Let's say you want to make a 1 quart bottle. First, add 5-1/2 oz. of OdoBan concentrate. Then, fill the bottle with 26-1/2 oz. of water. This will make a quart bottle or 32 oz. Below is a mixing chart for other bottle sizes at the air freshener dilution ratio.

1 Gal. Eucalyptus Odor Eliminator and Disinfectant Multi-Purpose Cleaner Concentrate

Excellent product

I have four dogs, two of which are puppies. I tried a number of different products to clean up after them and nothing worked as well as odoban. I love the eucalyptus scent. I love that its not toxic to my animals or kids.

Pros: Easy to Use

1 Gal. Fresh Linen Disinfectant Laundry and Air Freshener Concentrate

The Absolute Best For Pet Odors

If you have ever experience a leaking kitty, you've probably gone through quite a few products and have been disappointed. Use this straight up, from a spray bottle and the odor is gone. The scent is light and airy, it will leave the area very fresh smelling. I used about a 1/2 cup in the bleach dispenser of my front loader, along with my normal detergent and it removed urine that two previous cycles couldn't touch.

This is a good product and it works! I used it straight on my couch and diluted in the wash, no problems, no fade or damage. Test your particular items first. I recommend!

Pros: Easy to Use

I don't know what I'd do without my OdoBan❗️ I've been using it for over twenty years. My favorite uses: disinfecting the bathroom, fabric softener & odor eliminator for my dogs blankets & beds, cleaning up after my dog when he forgets he's inside. You GOTTA try it yourself, you won't be disappointed.

1 Gal. Lavender Odor Eliminator and Disinfectant Multi-Purpose Cleaner Concentrate

Love this product

Usually buy the original scent, which is great, but thought I'd try the lavender for the rugs in my house. We have dogs and the rugs get very dirty and oily and this cuts the oil and leaves the rugs and house smelling very fresh. Also use it around the toilets in the bathroom, the trash cans, and the patio. A little goes a long way.

Pros: good value, works great

Great On A Boat with a Holding Tank and Diesel Engine!

We have a large cruising sailboat on the Great Lakes and have had issues with our head (toilet) and holding tank. Before starting a replacement project a friend asked what I was going to do about the smell. He told me about Odoban. They aren't kidding when they say it works instantly! It is truly amazing. Working in the heat with diesel and sewer smell can only be imagined. Bottom line, it works better than advertised. It is always on the boat. RV owners should also look into it.

Pros: Easy to Use, High Quality

Great for Laundry

I love the Eucalyptus scent OdoBan for my laundry. I do not use fabric softener for towels, so put it in the fabric softener dispenser for the final rinse. It keeps the towels smelling fresh and clean. It's also nice that it is a disinfectant to prevent mold and mildew.

Pros: smells nice

Cons: none

Great Product for pet lovers

I do have two dogs into an apartment and I use Odoban on a daily basis

It sanitizes the area plus have a odor control that last

It is also a good option for an allergy control cleaning

Since the first use of it, I can't be within it at home!

best cleaner/ disinfectant/air freshener especially if you have pets

In the 90's several ladies opened an animal shelter. We leased an old SPCA building, the smell was terrible. We powerer washed the kennels, walls and runs and our shelter always smelled fresh and felt clean.

Pros: Lots of Features, Easy to Use

Best odor eliminator on the market

This beats the odor eliminators that are supposedly specially formulated for pet urine stains and odors. None of those actually eliminate the stain and odor like this product does. In addition, it also eliminates diesel, oil and other petroleum product odors from clothing in one wash.

best ever cleaning solution.

I have added it to my son's smelly football laundry. Works to take the odors out, not just cover them up. I clean his pads and helmet with it. Also works great to clean up pet accidents. I spray it in my showers to clean off scum and any mildew. IT WORKS. No issues with altering the surface like bleach does.

From a pump spray to a carper shampoo rinse. Cruelty Free.

We have used used it to replace out pump spray odor eliminator at a great value. It worked so we I mixed it into the rinse water of the carper shampooer. It permanently removed all the dog odors the shampoo never gets.

The best discovery is that it a cruelty free product avoiding the torture of lab animals. Thank you Home Depot.

Pros: cruelty free

Works great

Eliminates really bad odors in the wash. Some things before would smell clean when wet but have a lingering odor after going through the dryer, now they come out smelling fresh.
