How does Unique Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator and Stain and Odor Eater work?
All of Unique products contain billions of safe, environmentally friendly bacillus bacteria and enzymes to literally eat up the organic matter that is causing a stain and odor problem. Remember high school biology? Bacteria are single celled organisms that reproduce by splitting into two cells. There are bacteria that are harmful to humans (such as e.coli) and bacteria that are useful to humans (such as penicillin). “Bacillus” bacteria is completely harmless to humans, animals, and plants. Yet it consumes a wide variety of organic material (a nice way of saying bad smelling waste such as urine, feces, blood and vomit.) At the cellular level, when you put billions of these bacteria on some sort of organic waste, the bacteria is able to digest it over time, turning it into water and carbon dioxide. The bacteria use “enzymes”, which are chemical catalysts to break up long, complex waste molecules into smaller pieces, which can then be digested by the bacteria. Enzymes are not alive, they
