Vapet Get Off Spray
Advantages: Good sprayer!
Disadvantages: Didnt work for us, really weird smell
When I first got Duke he had a few accidents on my bed. Obviously this is not very pleasant and normal household cleaners will not get rid of all of the smell, yes, to you it may be gone but to a cat it is their territory. I had no intention of buying a special spray because my Mum had tried numerous different brands even paying £20 for some to stop one of our cats spraying and none had made any difference. However when I spotted it in Poundland I thought I should buy it - I had no expectation of it working whatsoever if I'm honest but I thought then I had tried to get a spray, my partner could not tell me off for not trying!
To use the spray you simply spray it on the affected area. Our affected area was the mattress and this is safe to use on fabrics but please remember to test it on a hidden area beforehand if it is the type of fabric that is on show for example a sofa or carpet. The spray comes out in a fine spray and a very good amount is dispensed, you only need a few sprays to cover the area.
The spray has a very distinctive smell but I cannot tell for the life of me what it is supposed to smell of! It's not exactly an unpleasant smell but its not pleasant either and I did find myself either longing for something odourless or with a fruity fragrance as if I sprayed this in the morning I could still smell it at bedtime! I actually got a bit paranoid that guests might wonder what the smell was because it certainly wasnt familiar!
So did it work? No. My mattress thankfully does not smell of cat wee however I do always disinfect it and then use febreeze if Duke has an 'accident'. By the way, Duke does suffer from urinary problems so he's not a terribly behaved kitten who shouldnt be allowed on the bed! If he is suffering he may have an accident once every week or two but touchwood at the moment he seems to be fine.
So despite spraying this on the mattress numerous times, Duke still goes in the same place so I am going to hazard a guess that no, this doesnt work, at least not for me anyway! It may have a better result on harder surfaces such as cupboards and doors and if you do have a need for this product and spot it in your local Poundland it is only £1 after all for a large bottle of 750ml so it could be worth a try.
Summary: Not one I would buy again but for £1 it could be worth a try if your household needs this
