The Equalizer Carpet Stain and Odor Eliminator (20 oz)

Item: EQ14OZ
1. Select size:



The Equalizer Carpet Stain and Odor Eliminator is scientifically formulated to handle the unique, persistent smell of animal messes, removing both the odor and the lingering territorial smell that brings animals back to the same place. By removing the location smell completely, your pet won’t think about making a mess again in that location, which can save your floor as well as your home. Equalizer can take on stains and smells from animal urine, vomit, feces, blood, old food, and more. For anything that is organic-based, this cleaner will do the job. Equalizer was originally formulated for veterinarian clinics to remove stains and smells in the examining room. Today, you can use the same tool to keep your house clean and your pet out of the proverbial “dog house” for leaving a mess behind.

Cats and dogs both make great pets but they also make very persistent messes, especially stains that leave strong odors. Normal carpet cleaners and odor removers won’t solve the problem, barely masking the smell of some stains like those from cat urine.

Review for The Equalizer Carpet Stain and Odor Eliminator (20 oz)
November 21, 2018
Since I found this spray 10 years ago I've used nothing but for cleaning up after sick cats. It's the only product that doesn't discolor my light colored carpet.

Equalizer spray!
July 13, 2018
It's the only spray that really works to get rid of pet odor and does not stain or make colors on carpet run! Love this product.
  • Spray, Let it dry and then vacuum!

So far so good
August 3, 2017
Really like how this product cleaned my carpet, with little effort. There was a definite white spot on my cream colored carpet that just showed my machine was not doing a good job.
The reason I bought this product was because my dog kept peeing in the walkway between two rooms instead of going in the room with her pad, but since buying can has had a medical issue and has had to be kenneled in another part of the house so I cannot speak to the fact if the enzyme break down portion works to get her to stop. I would buy again.

Great Odor Stopper!

This is by far the best product on the market when it comes to removing stains and odors left by your animals. I haven't found one yet that even compares. It doesn't just mask the odor--it eliminates it! Great price on this website too.

I've been using Equalizer for years and all I can say is that it has never disappointed me. It gets up odors and stains - urine, feces and vomit - you name it, this product cleans the carpet so you will never know it was there. I would never consider using another product!

I use to show Bulldogs. Could never find anything that took the stain out and the smell out and kept it out. This stuff is pricey but will worth every penny. I have a white carpet in one room of my house I rent it takes care of dirty paw prints and the little whoops that we might have.

Good stuff

This product was recommended by a friend who is a vet tech. She used it to remove the remaining smell of when her young son threw up all over the upholstery in her car. I have used it to remove cat urine smell on hard surfaces. It works very well.

Gets the stains out!
August 16, 2016
Works great on stain removal if you take your time and gently work the stain out. Let it sit on the stain and then blot it up. Will remove fresh stains easily and will remove most of set in stains. Best product I've found for this task.

This product is unbelievably great.
It got old pet stains out of my white carpet that professionals couldn't get out. I just sprayed it on... and it was gone in minutes! I was shocked. I stocked up on several cans... I have 5 cats and will never be without this amazing cleaner!

Is kind of expensive but, you get what you pay for. The Equalizer works great on any type of stain. Its made for pet stains but, it also works well on other carpet stains as well and on stains in your car.

Finally a pet spray that works
June 14, 2016
This maybe slightly pricey, but it removes ALL orders, stains. No lingering smell. Worth every penny over ALL the other types of pet order removers. Even removes blood stain from fabrics and other spots!

This product works very well. It completely eliminated cat smells that remained after I had shampooed the carpet. I got a bit carried away the first time I used it and used up a great deal of the can but got the hang of it to just spray it and don't douse.
Great product

I highly recommend this product for pet stains and upholstery cleaning. It removes stains from fabric that I did not think possible. Wouldn't be without it.

Nothing Works Better
February 9, 2016
Having always had both dogs and cats in the house, stains and odor in carpet and on furniture have been long standing issues for me. I've tried a wide variety of products, but nothing I've found works better at stain and odor removal than The Equalizer! Pet stains from feces, urine or vomit are normally removed in one try, and odor is totally neutralized. It hasn't damaged any of my carpet or furniture fabric either. This is the real deal!

Not as good!
January 19, 2016
Although this seems to be an OK product for its uses its just not as good as Go Spot Go. Sorry, its missing something.

This stuff is great!
September 29, 2015
I live with three dogs and a cat, plus I'm a butter-fingers. I can use this on ANY stain on my carpet...not just pet-related. Just shake the can, spray on stain, and watch it bubble it right out. I use a damp cloth to wipe over it, and sometimes spray it one more time...but not usually. Remember to somehow mark where you spray it, because if you just walk away, you'll probably not be able to find where it was. It's THAT GOOD!

The Equalizer--best deoderizer I have ever used
July 26, 2015
First bought The Equalizer at my Vet's and they stopped carrying it. It was a miracle deodorizer and I was so upset they didn't continue carrying it. I went on line and found it at Entirely Pets and will continue to order/use it forever. It truly does do away with stains and there is absolutely no odor after using it. Thanks for being a life saver!
By Liz
Excellent for those accidents
June 18, 2015
This is the best product I found that addresses peeing mistakes, throw up, or any liquid mess that may come out of your pet. I always have at least a couple cans in the house. It doesn't cover the smell or leave the stain, it does away with both.
By Deb
I Love It!

I had a little trouble with the nozzle at first and am not sure if you have to shake it but the product is great.

The Equalizer removed an old stain that I used another product on but it had only made the stain worse. Finally, something that really works.

The Best
February 13, 2015
Equalizer has no equal. Spray it on - occasionally rub it in depending on how long the stain was there - and the stain and odor are gone - even on light carpet. Even spray it on laminate or wood (and then wipe it off) where there has been a potty training accident and the spot will no longer draw a return accident. My vet uses it for accidents in the waiting room - that's where I first saw it used. They spray it and walk away.

Best stain remover ever
January 28, 2015
I originally got the Equalizer from my vet, but found it on Entirely Pets much cheaper. It has saved my carpet, completely removes stains and odor. Keep several cans on hand as I have 3 dogs. Always takes care of their occasional acidents, and can be used for other food spills too.

Best Ever!

Worked Amazing! Took the smell out of a mattress that my kitten Louie had an accident on!
Would definitely buy again and recommend!

I found stain weeks later can this product still get
4 Answers
Equalizer is excellent at removing older stains. Do not oversaturate with the product. Wait a few minutes, blot what you can and let it dry completely before you go through this process again. I have been able to get dog urine off of a white velvet chair that I had not seen. Best pet stain remover on the market. I even removed human blood from the arm of a chair with this.

Yes, it can still help.  You maybe need to do more than one application and let it sit on it for a while.

Yes, it works on old stains. I originally got it from my vet. Works great. Have an older dog that has accidents and don't know what I would do without it.
