      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      buy it if you can afford it

      I adore my rabbit (see profile picture) and I always come back from the pet shop laden with extra's. On a recent trip I picked up Johnson's clean n safe and thought I would share my thoughts. I bought the bottle designed for small animals but there are separate products for birds and cats and dogs. My review will focus on the green small animals product. -- What is it and what is it for? -- Johnson's clean n safe is a disinfectant, cleaner and deodorant which you can use to clean out your small furry pets cage or hutch. -- Price and Packaging -- The product comes in a spray bottle similar to those you might use for spritzing plants in your garden or home. The spray bottle itself looks good quality and could be used again if cleaned out fully. The plastic bottle is clear and the liquid itself is a clean, attractive green colour so you can see when you are running out. The bottle is easy to grasp as it has indentations you can rest your fingers on when spraying so it feels safe, secure and comfortable in your hand. The spray comes out in a fine mist and as the nozzle is good quality it did not stick or jar. The tip of the spray nozzle has a twisting cap so you can close the nozzle when not in use. The label is green and yellow and bears a photo of a cute bunny and Guinea pig. It cost me £3.29 in the local pet store - I haven't seen it sold much cheaper anywhere else either. In my opinion this is pretty expensive. I clean my rabbits cage out every couple of days in doing this I have gone through this bottle very quickly. -- My experience of clean n safe -- Overall, this is a useful product. Prior to using this I had been using vinegar diluted in water to clean my rabbits cage. This does banish odors but it does not have the added advantage of disinfectant which is included in clean n safe. The clean n safe is also convenient which is one of the reasons I picked it up. You don't have to bother diluting vinegar in water the product is ready to use right away straight form the bottle. Cleaning out a small furries cage is not the most exciting task so anything that makes it easier is a bonus. That this product is marketed as being safe which I find reassuring as I do worry about cleaning product residue being in my rabbits cage that could cause her harm. -- Odor busting power - does it do what it says on the tin? -- The product claims to banish odors and it does do a good job of this however, I personally don't like the smell of the fluid. Of course it smells better than the mess my rabbit makes and I should think so too but I would prefer if it smelled a bit fresher. On first whiff this product smells clean fresh and pleasant so its clear Johnson's have tried to make it smell good but I found it to have a bit of a pungent background aroma. I actually prefer the smell of the vinegar and water. --- cleaning power? ----- I used this product for spot cleans through the week. It helped me remove most of the tacked on dirt and, lets not beat the bush, urine from the cage and litter tray. However, I found my rabbits cage still needed a more thorough clean at the end of the week. As rabbits tend to go in the same place all the time and their urine is thick and Ammonia like I find the cage really does need a good scrubbing. As such I still do a deep clean with a small amount of bleach at the end of the week. -- Kills Bacteria? -- Well, as I cant see the little critters I cant really vouch for this but will need to trust the manufacturers on it. This is however, one of the bonuses over the vinegar and water cleaning method so its a good feature. -- Would I recommend this product? -- Overall, if it was a bit cheaper I would buy this product regularly for the convenience it offers. However, for me its a tad pricey for the amount I clean the cage and the smell could be improved. That being said, the smell is preferable to rabbit mess. Its expensive at over £3.00 but if you have the money give it a go. Don't spray it on your pet - the bottle tells you not to I would hope that no one would think this was a good idea!

      Disadvantages

      A must have for all small animals

      I used to buy this spray, when i had my hamster, who i have to say sadly passed away a couple of months ago. This spray was so handy when it came to cleaning out time. I was a little unsure when i first bought it, as to whether or not this would be too strong for her and it would set off any allergies etc. But as it happened, the spray is a mild disinfectant and there is very little odour. The pump on the bottle is so good, it squirts a very powerfull spray and you don't really needs to use very much at a time, depending on how dirty the cage is. There is no need to pre wash the cage first, just a clean dry cloth, the spray and the job is done. Another advantage is, that the drying time is so quick. It is not just the tray of the cage, which you can use the spray on. I used it to clean out her house, shelf of the cage and the wheel. It leaves no smears and is 100% safe for all small animals. Just think of the time you save if you wash the cage and accessories and have to leave it to dry. The job is done is less than half the time. A bonus with it is, you have a lovely fresh clean smell afterwards. I purchased mine from Pets at Home, but you can buy this from most pet shops and supermarkets. The cost is very reasonable, i can't remember exactly, as it is so long since i bought a bottle, but i remember at the time that it was a great bargain.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Little to complain at, reasonably priced and widely available pet-friendly disinfectant.

      It only seems yesterday that I had my pet rabbit's. Although my rabbit's weren't kept indoors I always kept them in a clean and comfortable hutch and used the Johnson's Clean and Safe Disinfectant in order to keep on top of this. I found this handy spray in my local pet shop for around £3.50 for a 500ml bottle. I thought it was fairly reasonable as I knew it was mild enough and suitable for use with pets in mind. General household cleaners contain potent chemicals that are potentially harmful to small animals. The disinfectant comes in a small range, meaning you can select the correct one which is designed specifically for your pet. The ones I noticed were one for cat litter trays and also the one I purchased which is designed with small animals, dogs and cats in mind. The brand is one I recognised, so I trusted it would be suitable for my rabbits. The disinfectant comes in a handy pump-action spray bottle which allows for easy dispensing on the area you need to clean. The disinfectant doubles up as a deodoriser, so in theory the pong will be subdued for a period of time after application. I can use the spray on the hutch and also feeding bowls and water bottles if they look a bit grubby. The fact that the disinfectant is safe around pets gives me the reassurance that I don't need to worry about its presence around my rabbits. I used the spray on the hutch and especially the areas which generally get mucky easily, such as where the rabbits go to the toilet. I spray the disinfectant on the worst areas and leave it for a short while to soak in and work its magic, before wiping it clean. The bottle suggests you leave it a while after application on tough spots, so following the instructions is wise on first use. I think the use of the disinfectant also freshens up the treated areas as they smell less stale and when I removed the rug from over the hutch in a morning I weren't greeted with as bad a smell. If you are looking for a disinfectant that is safe for use with pets in mind then the Johnson's Clean and Safe Disinfectant is worth a look. The results are quite reasonable and although the disinfectant is mild enough for use with pets this means there are compromises as far as the overall results are concerned. I wouldn't say I were disappointed - far from it, but it is a shame I weren't blown away by it. I would, however recommend it as a product to use for cleaning up a cage if you have a new pet to house in the hutch/cage, to completely clean the old scent and freshen up the living area for your new companion.

      An excellent product, a must for any petkeeper.

      This is an excellent product, and I have completely loyal to this brand. I first bought this in 2007, when we first got guinea pigs, and needed something safe to use. I was recommended this by my cousin, and I've never looked back. Pros -The product is very reasonably priced. -The product lasts a very long time. -The spray is a very fine mist, not a jet of disinfectant. -The product smells amazing. Cons -Bottle shape is a bit awkward to store. -Can be difficult to find. (I've only ever seen it in one chain of pet store) -Green colour makes it appear unsafe. To sum it up, this spray is excellent, does its job very well, and lasts a long time. This product is not a sundry, it is an investment in a pet's health, and can be used as a general disinfectant for areas that have a high rate of human contact.

      Peace of mind for your pet

      Anyone who has read my reviews knows how important my cat is to me. He is the boss of my house and obviously I do what I can to feed, clean and entertain him. For that reason I bought this Johsnson's clean 'n' safe disinfectant after seeing it on the shelf and thinking what a good idea to have a disinfectant that is especially for animals as we all know that most household cleaners contain a lot of dangerous chemicals so using them to clean your animals bedding, toys, feeding bowls etc. are bound to be bad for your pet. There are a few different types of the disinfectant depending on what type of pet you have. I bought the cat tray disinfectant but you can also get it specifically for smaller animals and dogs and cats. It cost me £3.65 from my local pet shop which is for a bottle containing 500ml of disinfectant. It is expensive for a cleaning spray but cheap for something that is for the well-being of your pet. The litter try disinfectant comes in a spray bottle so it is easy to use and all you need to do is empty the try and wash it out then spray some disinfectant and leave it for a few minutes to get to work and then either just wipe it off or rinse it under the tap. The disinfectant works to kill germs and bacteria to help make sure that your cat will stay healthy and it also works to deodorise the tray and leaves it smelling really clean and fresh. You can also use the cat tray disinfectant on feeding bowls, bedding etc. Obviously if you are using it on your cat's feeding bowls then you need to make sure that you wash them well afterwards so that there is no product still on them. When you use the spray it also has the benefit of making it easier to clean. The dried on bits of food just wipe off after the spray has been on for a few minutes and it saves me always having to shove it in the dishwasher and a quick rinse under the tap is sufficient to clean it after using the disinfectant. I'm not a scientist and have no idea if this is 100% safe for my cat but I put my trust in the company and it makes me feel better knowing that I am using something especially designed for pets and something that will hopefully keep him healthy.

        A very good cleaner to clear up after messy pets

        I have a miniature schnauzer puppy named Sawyer and we are right in the throes of toilet training at the moment - therefore something to clean pee and poo up with is absolutely essential for me. I picked this up at Pets At Home for £3.00 - it comes in a 500ml bottle. It comes in a clear plastic bottle with a pump spray at the top, which is blue plastic. The liquid inside is blue, and on the bottle's label is a picture of a dog, and a smaller picture of a cat. The product claims to: Disinfect; Clean away surface dirt; Kill bacteria and viruses; Deodorise, leaving a clean, fresh fragrance. It also states that it can be used on hard floors, carpets and durable fabrics. I have never used it on carpet or fabrics so I can't vouch for that - I wouldn't want to use it on the likes of my (cream) sofas to be honest just in case! I use this on my laminated wooden living room floor and tiled kitchen floor. Any time a certain little puppy has an accident on the floor, I rush to get this and some kitchen roll. Once sprayed, the product does have an odour - it smells clean and not at all bleachy. The smell isn't unpleasant. The product sprays on clear. The bottle states to leave it on for 15 minutes after application - I'd imagine that that is a good rule to stick to if you are using it for the likes of cleaning out cages. As I just spray this on the floor after removing any little 'presents' that the puppy has left behind, I usually spray it, leave it for about a minute and then wipe clean with kitchen roll. I always feel that it cleans the floor well and removes any trace of pee/poo or any remaining nasty smells! As toilet training is ongoing, I have gone through about half a bottle of this in the past 2 weeks, but I expect that once this phase is over (please God let it be soon!), I will find that the bottle lasts a LOT longer. I would recommend this, as it does the job and doesn't smell unpleasant or too 'bleachy'. It is a good cleaner for a reasonably good price. Obviously when you have a puppy nothing can beat mopping the floors properly, but for quick fixes after little accidents, this is a very good product, and I will be using this when the time comes to clean out Sawyer's pet carrier. Thanks for reading.

          An excellent cleaner for use with pet products

          Clean 'n' safe by Johnson's is a disinfectant, cleaner and deodorant that is safe for use with small animal products eg. cages. Many conventional cleaners are not safe for use around pets so this is a welcome product for any animal owners. The product comes in a tall thin spray bottle which has moulded grooves near the spray head for your fingers (useful if your hands are wet so they don't slip on the otherwise smooth plastic of the bottle). The spray head is a dark green colour, the trigger is firm (not too resistant to use, but not flimsy either) and the nozzle gives a nice even spray of the cleaner. Each bottle gives you 500ml of green liquid which has a water like consistency. Personally I use Clean 'n' safe to clean out my rats cages and most of the bits they contain (levels, ladders, tubes and food bowls) which with my boys, can get quite messy quite quickly. I do find that on more stubborn marks/dried on stuff, clean 'n' safe isn't always enough to shift it of it's own accord, but with a little help from some warm water and a scrubbing brush it leaves things looking and smelling clean. As these are two of the 3 stated abilities of the product, I will have to assume that it also works in the capacity of disinfectant as there is no real way I can test this. The smell is hard to describe, but it's very light and pleasant - certainly not a traditional disinfectant smell and not overpowering to even the most sensitive nose. While some people prefer highly fragranced products, I feel a light fragrance such as this is more appropriate for pet related products. Clean 'n' safe states it is safe to use with all small pets, although when they say 'with' they don't of course mean that literally and you shouldn't put any on your pet, or put said pet back on wet surfaces. After using it to clean various items you should rinse and dry them off. I find that the 500ml bottle lasts a good long time - I've got 3 rat cages and each bottle lasts me an average of 3 months. This is because unless you are cleaning heavily soiled areas, you don't need to use much at any one time - a couple of sprays is usually enough for the base of a cage, then 1 spray per additional item. This gives enough to wipe down the surface without leaving everything swimming in disinfectant, however you might want to use more if you are introducing a new animal to an already existing group and want to make the cage as neutral as possible. Overall I would definately recommend this product - it gives me peace of mind that I'm keeping my rat cages clean and using a product that doesn't put their health at risk. It lasts a long time and represents value for money at under £3 a bottle.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A very effective and safe spray that will keep your pets cage clean and bacteria free!

          When I first got my hamster Chibi ten months ago, I was looking for a product that would clean my hamsters cage without the risk of harming my hamster. I found Johnson's Clean n' Safe spray whilst browsing in my local Pets At Home. The label stated that this spray is a disinfectant and cleaner, and would kill bacteria in my pets cage. Convinced that this should be safe enough for my hamster, I bought a 500ml bottle of it for £2.99. The bottle is a green colour, with a matching green label and liquid. When it came to cleaning out my hamster, I removed all the soiled bedding from the cage, and sprayed the spray directly onto the soiled areas in my hamsters cage. The label states that you can leave it to settle for a while for tougher spots, but I found that it lifted the dirt within a minute or so. I wiped off the spray with a cloth, and was amazed at how easy it was to clean off even the more stubborn areas in Chibi's living space. The spray easily lifts off the dirt and places it on the cloth you are wiping it up with. I was pleased to find out that even though this spray is a disinfectant, there was no strong disinfectant smell left in my Chibi's cage when I had finished cleaning him out. There is a very slight clean smelling scent, but I could only smell this when I got up close to the liquid to inspect the smell. This meant that there was no risk of Chibi becoming irritated by a strong scent in his cage that does not belong to him. I was also relieved to know that this spray is absolutely safe to use in your pets cage. However, when I use this spray, I do make sure I have thoroughly wiped off all the spray from the cage, just encase there was an incidence when Chibi would become irritated by the spray left behind. I clean my hamster out once a week, and have found that a £2.99 bottle of Johnson's Clean n' Safe spray lasts a few months before I have to purchase a new one. This is great news, as the bottle can be quite expensive if you are having to use it regularly. Of course this is based on a hamster, and the amount of time it lasts with a larger pet, such as a rabbit, will be significantly shorter. Overall, Johnson's Clean n' Safe spray is an excellent cleaner for your pets cage. It effectively lifts off any dirt from their cage, removes bacteria, and freshens the area. The scent is very minimal, and luckily it has no smell of bleach or disinfectant, like a lot of cleaning products do. It is also completely safe for your pet, so do not worry about your pet reacting badly to the spray. However, I would suggest thoroughly removing all traces of the spray in your pets cage before putting them back in, just encase there was a chance that they would not react well to the spray that you have left behind. This is a great product that lasts for a considerable amount of time, and is the most effective cage cleaner I have ever used! I would definitely recommend this for your pets home!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A great cleaner, well worth buying, and it actually does what it says on the label.

            Johnson's Clean 'n' Safe has been around for a while - and I've been using it for a few years now. Packaging: It comes in a very standard spray bottle - green top, lables and liquid. On the lable it states "Disinfector, cleaner, deodorant" and that it "Kills bacteria and viruses where pets live, sleep and feed". It also has a sticker saying it's safe for use with small animals. It comes in a 500ml bottle. It ocassionally has a changed lable or a new improved formula, but it's stayed very similar the whole time I've used it. On the back it has the normal info; some of the viruses and bacteria it's effective against, precautions, directions and an important part saying there's a chance of a reaction on certain delicare feabrics etc. And also a rather worrying statement; "Do not spray directly onto animals.", which hopefully nobody needs to read to know it's a bad idea! Usage: It is to be sprayed directly onto areas needing cleaning, it says it can be left upto 15 minutes to clean. Most of the time it only needs a minute or 2 at most though for me, I've also left it for probably about 30 minutes when doing other things. You then simply wipe (or rinse) clean and dry. As a cleaner, it does work incredibly well - I've never needed to resort to less safe cleaners to get something totally clean and mostly it works fine with 1 use with warm water at most. More stubborn stains or patches I've sometimes used more and hot (not boiling) water and this will shift just about anything. I've used it on metals, plastics, materials (including fleece, cotton and polyester) without any damage, I've also used it on wood when cleanin a rabbit hutch. Each time the item has always been left beautifully clean. It smells quite neutral - it has a scent but it's not overpowering, nor is it "bleachy". It's a very thin liquid, not gel-like, and it's a shade of green - it's not stained my clothes when I've got it on them though. One bottle will last me quite a while and I have 1 large, 2 level cage, and I'm pretty generous - you won't be going through a bottle a week. Safety: Well we all worry about our pets, none of us want to risk harming them - now obviously I've done no extensive testing by giving it as a drink or anything, but certainly there will have been residue at times on things I couldn't rinse properly and I've never had any problems, I'm happy using it on food bowls etc to get them clean. Price; Currently this sells in Pets at Home for £2.99, this is around the average price of it - I've seen it between £2.49 and £3.49 but it's usually at the middle, Ive sometimes seen it on offer in pet shops htough with £1 off or 2 for £5 and such and usually manage to buy it then. It's completely worth the money for me for knowing I'm not hurting my pets using it, it's also cheaper than many other brands of pet safe disinfectants. A final word, they also do versions for birds, cats and dogs, I have no idea what the difference is but as they're the same price, you may as well buy the one best suited to your pet I suppose! Overall a great cleaner and completely worth the price.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A spray that cleans and gets rid of smells.

            As the proud owner of two children, two guinea pigs and a mad goldfish called Dolphin, I am always trying, albeit sometimes unsuccessfully, to keep the general surrounding living areas clean and fresh smelling, much easier said than done! Now anyone who owns pets will know that simply spraying to cover any unbecoming odours is never the way to go, but as the product I will now review for you is part disinfectant and part odour removing spray, this is surely the exception to the rule! The product in question is "Johnsons - clean 'n' safe spray". The idea of this spray is the fact that with it being a multi purpose spray, can be used to clean, disinfect and then deodorise any small animals cage, eating and drinking utensils, bedding, practically anything that comes into contact with said pet, though of course not the animal itself! The bottle itself is a bog standard pump action trigger spray, which is ideal, you don't really want a gas pressured bottle around pets, I always worry how it will affect them, even spraying my hairspray on the other side of the house! (On my hair of course, not the actual house!). How I use this spray is to clean the bottom of my guinea pigs cage and disinfect their feeding bowl, plate (yes, my piggy boys are that posh!) and water bottle, all areas that they have to touch with there mouths and could potential harbour nasty germs. To use you either spray, leave for 15 minutes then wipe clean, or for the cage itself remove all waste, then spray and scrub clean, which is easier said then done, especially when my boys use a specific corner for their number one's, it create s a paper mache effect with the sawdust and welds it to the cage floor! When cleaned and allowed to dry, the cage smells of a subtle disinfectant, and is visibly cleaner, with the added bonus of this being a spray that (once dry) will not hurt the animal you are trying to neutralise the smell of! One of the other reasons for using this spray is to effectively kill the nasty germs and bugs that are harboured in their cage, especially with the HUGE amount of faecal material liberally strewn across the floor, I swear they hold onto it until the cage has been cleaned, my son was like that with his nappies! The product claims to kill a number of viruses and bacteria, with there being a wide range listed on the bottle such as salmonella and herpes simplex virus, many of them I am sure contributed to the fact they like to eat off the floor, though the plate does help! (Method in my madness!). Price wise this was recommended then sold to me at the same time as the guinea pigs from pets at home, and cost me £1.99 a bottle, which (with weekly use) has lasted me nearly a year as very little is actually needed when it comes to it. For more information visit - www.johnsons-vet.com This is an ideal product that has served me well so far, and one that I intend on continuing to use, recommended! Thanks for reading x

              Disadvantages

              A good spray

              I originally came across this spray when my my last hamster Larry died. I had this thing about not putting a new hamster into his cage until I was sure it was clean, thinking you can 'catch death' may seem silly when I had Larry for so long and I think it was old age that got him in the end but I was still paranoid just incase. So I went into Pets and Home and asked them what I could use to clean the cage out before purchasing a new hamster and I was pointed in the direction if this. This clean and safe disinfectant is of course a disinfectant also a cleaner and a deodrant. It comes in a 500ml plastic squirty bottle which is frosty with a green liquid inside. The front sticker told me that it 'Kills bacteria and viruses where pets live, sleep and feed' so that was quite reassuring. The back also lists some of the viruses and bacteria which the spray can tackle these include Influenza Hong Kong Virus, Rotavirus and Escherichia Coli. I will be honest I have no idea what any of these are or how I would tell if my hamster had them but it sounded quite impressive so I thought I would give it ago. This spray is designed for use in the cage not for use on the hamster that may sound obvious but with some people you never know do you. The spray can be used to clean not only the cage but also the food bowl, bedding, and drinks bottle. Personally I only use it on the cage because I wouldn't risk my hamster eating the chemicals if I used it in his bowl and didn't rinse it out properly. First off I empty the saw dust from the cage into a bin bag. I find that the cage rarely looks that dirty to the eye as I use alot of sawdust but you never know what germs we can't see do you so I use this just incase. I spray the liquid into the cage leave it for 15 minutes as advised on the back whilst my hamster has a run around in his ball. I then wipe it clean with a cloth then re add my saw dust and return my hamster to his home. The spray does smell quite chemically so I don't like to use to much but the cage looks clean when I have finished. This spray is suitable for all small animal cages and I would definatley recommend it for hamsters it cost me £2.99 which I think is a small price to pay for piece of mind.

              Great cleaning product for small animals

              I bought Johnson's Clean and Safe disinfectant in order to keep my rats' cage squeaky clean and hygienic for them, as rats can have quite sensitive respiratory systems and the wrong cleaning products can make them quite ill. I've been very pleased with this product and will definitely be buying it again. The disinfectant comes in a spray bottle similar to household cleaning products for humans and costs £2.99 for 500ml from Pets At Home. This 500ml bottle has lasted me several months and is still about half full so is good value for money and lasts a long time. The spray is green in colour and doesn't really have a strong smell at all, just a clean fresh sort of smell that doesn't linger too long or get in your nose to make you sneeze! Clean and Safe is really effective at keeping plastic and metal surfaces clean and hygienic, less so wooden surfaces so I tend to wash those in soapy water and give them lots of time to dry. I use Clean and Safe either with a clean fabric cloth or for the really messy parts, with disposable kitchen towels. I find this spray particularly useful as my rats' cage is on the larger side and it would be impossible to move it around to either the bathroom, kitchen or yard to clean it with soap and water, and I wouldn't be comfortable using a generic household multi surface spray that might be potentially harmful to the animals. I also use the spray for day to day 'spot cleaning' when I just need to freshen things up between major cleans, for these I don't even feel the need to remove the rats as this disinfectant is so mild. I would definitely recommend this spray to owners of small animals as it is easy and quick to use, gentle and safe for my rats' delicate lungs and great value for money as just a few sprays will clean most average sized cages so the spray will last for a good long time. Just one tip, don't spray it onto carpet, the green colour isn't permanent but it might leave a mark!

                Disinfectant for animal accidents

                As an new owner of a King Chares puppy we have plenty of little accidents around the house at the moment and as I also have a two year old roaming around the house I need to make sure that there is nothing that will cause any stomach bugs in our house.     I was using anti bacterial spray but found this wasnt the best because it was only good in the kitchen on a tiled floor. I couldnt use this on varnished wood so I found myself looking for an alternative and came across this Johnsons disinfectant.     I saw it in my local pet shop for 3 euro and snapped it up as a solution to my flooring problems! The bottle is easy to recognise as it has the familiar Johnsons brand and the bottle itself which is 500ml reminds me of Cif. It has a spray nozzle for easy cleaning although there is no safety lock on this so I must be careful using it around my daughter.     The spray as the name suggests is safe to use around animals as it does not contain the same strong chemicals that would be in our household disinfectants. There is a mild fragrance from this spray that reminds me of pine although its not too strong. To be honest I hate when disinfectants smell like this but this smell is very mild.     I found this to clean excellently and I was confident walking aroud the house in bare feet after use! I would highly recommend this if you have young children in the house and are worried about the little messages your dog leaves. This will clean the area well and it is safe to animals too.

                -

                I recently discovered Johnson's Clean & Safe Disinfectant. I saw it on Amazon for just under £4.00 and ordered myself a bottle as I thought it would be great for the cat litter tray when we clean it out and disinfect it - plus we wouldn't end up using up all our antibacterial gel like we usually do! The Clean & Safe Disninfectant comes in a 500ml spray bottle and looks a little bit like windowline. It comes in different varieties - one for cats, one for dogs and then one for smaller animals and their cages. The liquid in the bottles are also a different colour and the liquid for the cat one is blue. The bottle is a spray bottle and has a spray nozzle for ease whilst using. Clean & Safe is a safe disinfectant to use for your animals as it does not contain harmful ingredients and is made for animals. It's main job is to clean away surface dirt and kill bacteria and viruses. It has a nice fresh fragrance to it and leaves the tray smelling very fresh and quite nice. It doesn't smell like your average household disinfectant - it reminds me of that fresh smell you get when it has rained and then you go out for a walk in the forest. The disinfectant really does work and it leaves the tray smelling fresher for longer and it gives me peace of mind to think the cats have a nice clean tray clear of nasty bacteria. There is one patch in my cats tray where a brand of litter I tried really marked the tray so I sprayed a few more sprays of this on it and left it for a few minutes and then scrubbed. I was surprised to see the stain had disappeared. I was more than impressed. The other thing I really like about this product is that when you use it you know there are no harmful chemicals in it that can effect your pet and I think that is really important. You don't have to use alot of the spray when you are cleaning out your cats tray. One or two sprays is more than enough though if it is a tough stain then a few more squirts will do. I have had this spray for a month now and it is still half full. It was definately worth the money I paid and I wouldn't hesitate in buying it again. Highly recommended!

                5 out of 5 stars

                Johnson's Clean and Safe Disinfectant I have been using this clean and safe disinfectant for quite a few years now, I first discovered it when I had a couple of lovely rats, now I use it for my guinea pigs cage and cleaning up after my puppy. It has quite a pleasant but not overly strong or noticeable smell, which is exactly what I want in a cleaning product aimed at my animals. I also think that it is quite an attractive green colour in a clear bottle, which makes it easier to tell how much product you have left. This disinfectant will also kill a range of bacteria and viruses that might cause harm to your little pets. This is very easy to use, it is a simple spray design that you squirt where ever you want it to go. This product not only has cleaning properties but will help to deodorise the more smelly areas of your pet's hutch. Overall, I think this is a great product and although there are a few different types available on the market I have been really pleased with this one and I will be sticking with it. I also tend to spray heavier and leave this on for longer on the areas that really need a good scrub. My guinea pigs tend to use one corner of their cage as their toilet, which I spray quite heavily with this product, do whatever else I have to do and then after it has been given a chance to work I wipe it all up. This seems to make the harder to clean areas not that much more hard work than the rest. Although this has been designed for cages and hutches I have also added this to hot water to clean the kitchen floor where my puppy eats. I wasn't sure what I could use to cause him no harm and not having the chance to shop for something dog friendly I used this. It appeared to do a good job at cleaning and disinfecting round the area where we keep his food and his puppy pads, the accident zone as we refer to it. I always tend to buy this from Pet's At Home for around £2.99 for a 500ml spray bottle. One bottle of this does last quite a while, I probably only buy around three a year and I do tend to be quite heavy handed when using this. This is a great product that has many uses and it is nice to know that the cleaning product that you are using won't do your little pets any harm. I think this deserves a well earned five out of five stars and I would recommend this to anyone with small pets and cages to clean out.
