How To Remove Old Pet Stains

Pet stains can be a hassle. They can be unsightly, or they can smell. If not properly removed, they can also last for quite some time. Once a pet stain has set in, removing it can be a challenge . . . unless of course you use Genesis 950.

Genesis 950 can remove old pet stains just as well as new pet stains. It works unlike other cleaners. Many cleaners are chemical based. However treating a stain with heavy chemicals doesn't always remove it. They can also discolor the carpet.

What makes Genesis 950 a better cleaner is the way it works. It is a concentrated cleaner that uses water to remove stains. When mixed with water and Genesis 950, a stain becomes water soluble and then broken down. In addition to removing stains, it does so safely. Genesis 950 is a green cleaner! No need to worry about pets or children suffering from coming in contact with it.

We recently received some feedback from a customer. Julie wrote:
"Hi, I have a large area (living room, hall and 3 bedrooms) that my 5 year old shih tzu has completely destroyed with urine stains. I ordered a gallon of your product, and it quickly removed a pretty large feces stain from my 5 month old puppy, so I was pretty excited to try it in a carpet cleaner."

She also included photos of the stain and the results.

Regardless of whether you own a dog or a cat, Genesis 950 is the best pet stain remover you will find. There are several other methods often suggested for cleaning. All too often, while the suggestions for removing pet stains are made in good faith, there are many issues with recommendations made. Vinegar, enzymes and household cleaners are widely recommended, however they are not always effective. Here's why:
  • Vinegar - Vinegar is one of the most widely recommended agents for cleaning pet stains. While it is in fact a good, natural cleaner, it should NEVER be used for pet stains. Vinegar is a natural acid with a pH balance of 2. The acidity does help it break down stains. The problem however with pet owners is that same acidic base which can break down stains. While vinegar has a pH level of 2, urine has a pH balance of 6. Both cats and dogs urinate where they smell they have gone before. This is obvious when a dog is taken outside and he sniffs out a spot to do his business. Or, if on a walk, your dog sniffs a spot then marks on it. Dogs do this because they can smell the acidity of their own, or another dog's urine. Cats do the same thing in a litter box. The odor of their urine, or odor added to the litter leads them to that spot. In the event that a pet is going to the bathroom in the chances, chances are it is in the same spot, or general area. This typically has less to do with training, and more so with the fact the smell the acidity of their urine. They will keep going to that spot unless it is properly cleaned. A vinegar cleaning will not remove that odor. Instead, you are simply enhancing it by adding another compound with a similar acidic base. 
  • Enzymes - Enzymes are hailed for their natural ability to break down stains. Enzymes are everywhere. The human body has them as well. The most notable are enzymes in the digestive system. These enzymes break down food to help the digestive process. Enzymes in the stomach react to food being ingested. While they can break down food, they don't break down the stomach lining. Enzymes perform specific tasks based on their function. This is important to understand. Enzymes will only work properly if they are in the right environment to perform. This holds true with pet stains. Enzymatic cleaners might be able to clean partial portions of pet stains, but they can not completely remove them because of variations in the environment. The diet of the pet, room temperature, previously exposed chemicals on the area being cleaning, expiration date of the enzyme and so on impact an enzyme's ability to function. Nor do enzymes contain the ability to remove the odor. They do not kill the bacteria that causes the odor. In fact, many people will notice odors returning after a few days. Sometimes, worse than it had previously been.
  • Household Cleaners - There are all sorts of problems using these types of cleaners. Some are notorious for discoloring carpet and creating an orange/pink tint to your carpet. Others might mask the odor briefly but not actually remove the stain or smell permanently. Soap based cleaners actually make the stains worse as the soaps attract more dirt and grime to the area. These types of cleaners leave behind a grayish tint.

Genesis 950 Reviews

Genesis 950 Reviews

Genesis 950 is a stain remover like no other. It is a green, all purpose cleaner that works with water to break the bonds of stains and lift them from the surface. It is sold in concentrate form and can easily replace traditional household cleaners. Use it in the kitchen, the bathroom, the garage, on clothes, carpets and more. The uses are endless.

Genesis 950 was first used in 1986 as a cleaning tool in printing plants. It is manufactured by Amerikal Products. Amerikal has been a leader in manufacturing sustainable products for the printing industry for nearly 30 years. Genesis 950 was initially designed to remove ink from roller presses, printroom floors, equipment and clothing. Over time, Genesis 950 found its way from the printing presses into people's homes. In 2011, it was made available online at In 2014, it was made available on Amazon. Since it has been made available, over 10,000 orders have been placed.

Since 2011, several reviews have been done on Genesis 950. Here is an overview of what reviewers are saying:

In February 2015, Megan from Ahh-Mazing Reviews reviewed Genesis 950. Megan has 3 children, all girls. They are energetic and artistic. Often, their creativity spilled onto the floor! Her biggest struggle has been keeping her home looking like she did before kids came along. Like most Mothers, she knows that just doesn't happen anymore. While there are many spills and stains, one she had the hardest time with was from a purple putty stain. Her girls smashed the putty down into the carpet. While she was able to remove the putty, the stain remained behind for months . . . until she tried Genesis 950. Using it at a 1 part 950 to 7 parts water ratio, she was able to remove the stain! Just see the before and after photos!

Our first review in 2015 came from Nicole at Organic Sunshine. Nicole is a Mother, a Blogger and a consumer concerned about the products she uses. She strives to ensure that products as well as food are free of harmful chemicals. This made Genesis 950 a perfect fit for her. Not only is Genesis 950 green and safe, it is effective.

Her review touched on 2 different stains. The most popular use for Genesis 950 is for pet stains. It works like no other cleaner. Instead of using harsh chemicals, Genesis 950 works with water to break the bonds of stains and remove them from the surface. In doing so, it also removes the odor. Nicole's dog Bailey had left a little surprise for her on a rug. She put Genesis 950 to the test and found that yes, it did remove the stains, and even better, it removed that lingering odor! She writes "This stuff really works for pet stains and odor!"

Her second use for Genesis 950 involved ink. This is a perfect fir for Genesis 950 as the origin of the product is to remove ink stains. Since the 1980's Genesis 950 has been used in industrial printing presses to clean spilled ink. Because industrial ink is so much more tough than ink you find in pens, make up, or in Nicole's case ink from silk screen printing, removing the stains was not a difficult task for Genesis 950.

Nicole used Genesis 950 to remove tough stains that other cleaners can't touch. Not only does it work, but it is safe! In summary, Nicole writes, "Genesis 950 is an effective cleaner and a must have for any household."

Nicole from Pretty Opinionated reviewed Genesis 950 in November 2011. In her review, she used Genesis 950 to remove glue that had spilled on the carpet. She had tried for months to remove the stains, however had no luck until she used Genesis 950. Genesis 950 was able to clean and remove the glue that had spilled on the carpet and dried up. 

In addition to her review, there are a few comments that her followers had made in regards to using Genesis 950. 
Erika wrote: "OMG!!! I read your review and tried this. AMAZING. Thanks for sharing!"
John wrote: "I tried the 950 Cleaner in my steam cleaner and was amazed how well my carpets cleaned up. I’ve tried everything in the book and they didn’t work as well. I did talk with the manufacturer of the product and they were a huge help on the correct way in using the product. Very Very Happy with this product and it saved me money on replacing my basement carpet."
April wrote:"I love this product! I wanted to share my before and after photos but don’t see how."

Marci from The Review Wire reviewed genesis 950 in March 2012. In Marci's review, she used Genesis 950 in a Hoover Steam Cleaning Machine to remove homemade Play-Dough from carpet. The bright yellow dough was embedded in the carpet and dried up. Genesis 950 easily removed the mess.

In addition to using Genesis 950 to remove carpet stains from kids, Marci also used it to remove carpet stains from a new puppy. In cleaning stains on the carpet from her puppy's accidents, she makes a statement we hear more than any other "I tried every type of cleaner out there." Bottom line, when it comes to pet stains, nothing removes the stains and odors like Genesis 950. 

Finger Click Saver really put Genesis 950 to the test! Here the big dilemma was cat stains. One of the kittens had vomited on the rug, but there were also more spots found on the carpet. genesis 950 cleaned those stains with no issue. In addition, she noted the importance of Genesis 950 being a deodorizer and disinfectant.

The cleaning tests continued on Finger Click Saver. Other vomit stains were cleaned and before and after pictures were unavailable because when she had gone back to take the after pictures, the area was so clean she couldn't remember where the stain was. In addition to cleaning rugs and carpets, she cleaned quilts, walls and her stove top. Genesis 950 was able to remove grease stains that had been on her stove top for years. Stains other cleaners couldn't remove.

Ashley from Closet of Free Samples tried Genesis 950 in July of 2013. Ashley used Genesis 950 for general household cleaner. In her review, Ashley demonstrates how easy Genesis 950 is to use. As a surfactant cleaner, Genesis 950 uses water to make a stain water soluble. When this happens, the stain looses it's adherence and then breaks away from whatever surface it has been attached too. Once this happens, the stain can then be wiped away. Ashley had recently moved into a new home and had some filthy windowsills. She used Genesis 950 at the 1:7 ratio, spray the mixture on the windowsill and let it sit. Once it broken the stains down, she was able to just wipe them away.

In November 2013, Jennifer from Born 2 Impress went above and beyond in trying out Genesis 950. She owns rental properties with carpets that have been used and abused. In one of the units, they were going to replace the carpet. She took full advantage of the situation by REALLY testing Genesis 950. In her test, she literally poured things on her carpet that typically, you would not want on your carpet. Coffee and chocolate syrup were tested in specific, as well as some old stains that had been on the carpet. 

In all cases, she spot cleaned the areas. Jennifer had mixed the 950 and water at the 1:7 recommended ratio for general cleaning. She sprayed the stains and allowed them to sit for a moment, then rinsed. While the 1:7 ratio is recommended for general cleaning, this can be increased as high as a 50/50 mix. In cases of extreme staining, the longer the mixture sits, the more it can break down the stains. For Genesis 950 to remove coffee and chocolate stains at a 1:7 ratio, sitting in the carpet for only a moment, and to be hand cleaned is beyond impressive. Imaging cleaning stains like this with a higher concentration of Genesis 950, or doing so using a carpet cleaning machine!

Bridget at Giveaway Promote reviewed Genesis 950 in January 2014. This is a review is one anyone who has carpet can relate to. While keeping a carpet can be fairly easy with the reminders to take shoes off before crossing, the reality is that just doesn't always happen. In addition to foot traffic, there is the occasional spill. Over time, the carpet can acquire stains that seemed to come from nowhere. Sometimes, those stains can be lightened with other cleaners, but they still linger, and if it's your house, you notice it no matter how light it is. 

Giveaway Promote used Genesis 950 in a carpet cleaning machine to remove stains from foot traffic, mystery stains, and the remains of a chocolate stain from long ago. By cleaning with a machine, she was able to remove all those stains and give the carpet a fresh, new look.

The Giveaway Promote review also stresses the eco-friendliness of Genesis 950 as well as the fact that it has no toxic chemicals. This again makes it perfect as an all purpose cleaner. She used it on kitchen counter tops and on the range of her oven hood. As she indicated, the Genesis 950 allowed the grease and oil to just slide off. 

In February 2014, Rachelle from Madame Deals review Genesis 950. Her home is not unlike others. Children, pets and a bust schedule take their toll on the carpets. Stains seem to appear and never really go anywhere. Rachelle perfectly summarizes everything about Genesis 950. She was skeptical and wondered whether Genesis 950 would work or not. She used it in a spray bottle and spot cleaned her stains. Her results were beyond her expectations, even on year old stains that nothing else could take out.

Genesis 950, as she stated, made her "carpets look like they did when I moved in." Yes, Genesis 950 is that good!

In addition to posting a before and after photo, Rachelle also posts a series of photos showing how she cleaned.

Brenda reviewed Genesis 950 in March of 2014 for The Small Things By Bre. In her review, she makes a statement that has been echoed by many people who have used Genesis 950. "This has got to be the best stain remover I have ever used." She gave her instructions for using the product in the review. She used it in the spray bottle (which comes free with 1 gallon orders from the Genesis 950 website). In a spray bottle, she mixed 1 part 950 to 7 parts water, sprayed the area, let it sit, scrubbed, then rinsed. 

She used Genesis 950 on carpets and furniture, demonstrating even more versatility in the product. She took before and after photos of the stains she removed with Genesis 950.

In May 2014, Jennifer reviewed genesis 950 on her blog Mommyy Of 2 Babies. She had tried Genesis 950 just in time for Easter! Her kids were dying Easter eggs and some of the dye ended up on the carpet. She had hand cleaned the dye stains with Genesis 950 and they came out with ease. She then went on to clean other stains that were in the carpet from previous incidents. The result? "This is one of my favorite cleaning products to date." "This stuff is amazing and picks up anything from the carpet." She included before and after photos from the Easter egg dye.

She also included several photos of the cleaning process. What is most notable is the photos she included of the towel used to clean the stains and how much it had pulled off the carpet.

Mommyy Of 2 Babies also featured Genesis 950 in their Mother's Day Gift Guide for 2013!

In August 2014, Lisa reviewed Genesis 950 for Chronically Content. Her review continued to show how far Genesis 950 goes when it comes to cleaning. While carpet stains are the hardest stains to clean, everyday cleaning can be made easier with Genesis 950. Because of the ability it has to remove dirt and stains from a number of surfaces, Lisa used the Genesis 950 for many typical household cleaning chores. 

One of the most impressive photos she shared was from when she cleaned her tile floors. The floors initially did not appear too dirty. However because Genesis 950 makes stains water soluble, it breaks down any dirt or dust in the area being cleaned. With tile, that dirt and dust can get into the pores of the material. Genesis 950 causes those particles to break down and be lifted. Once this happens, they can be wiped clean. As a result, her tile, which looked fairly clean to begin with, looked amazing. She couldn't believe what came up on her towel.

She also went on to clean a shower curtain covered with soap scum and water stains, her concrete porch and her cabinets and cupboards. As Lisa said, "This product cleans and cleans deep."

Bridget from The Simple Moms put Genesis 950 to the test in August 2014. She's a Mom with 4 kids and a dog, so you know she has her hands full. Like most Moms, she has to deal with stains appearing an nobody having any idea where they came from or what they are. She had one of those stains on her carpet when she tried Genesis 950. Like most people we hear from, the stain had been there for a while and all efforts to clean the stain ended in failure. because of the difficulty she had in the past trying to remove the stain, she had little confidence in Genesis 950. However, once she used Genesis 950 she titled the review, "Start with Genesis 950 and you won't need anything else."

The process she used to remove the stain took her no more than 5 minutes. She used the Genesis 950 in the 1:7 ratio, sprayed the area, let it sit for 2 minutes, scrubbed her carpet clean then blotted with water to rinse. It was that easy! A stain that had been impossible to remove was cleaned away in 5 minutes!

In November 2014 a review came from Karen at Jenn's Blah Blah Blog. Karen used the Genesis 950 for several household cleaning tasks. One of her first cleaning tasks involved her stainless steel appliances. Anyone who has stainless steel knows how hard it is to clean. It seems to pick up every finger print and mark from out of nowhere. When cleaning stainless, it can easily look cloudy, get streaked, or form water spots. However Karen cleaned with Genesis 950 and found it worked better than the cleaners manufactured by the company who made the appliances!

She also used Genesis 950 to clean woodwork - particularly wood windowsills. This particular windowsill happens to be a favorite resting place for her cat. In sitting there, the area easily picks up dust and dander. With little effort, the Genesis 950 removed all the buildup. 

Chances are if you have a stain, Genesis 950 can remove it!

How To Clean Pet Vomit Stains

On occasion a pet owner may run into an instance where their food doesn't agree with them or an upset stomach might be bothersome. When this happens, generally the carpet or a rug becomes the target. These stains can be easily cleaned using Genesis 950. 

Genesis 950 is a green, surfactant based cleaner that works like no other stain remover. As a surfactant based cleaner, it works with water to break the bonds of stains.

However pet stains can be more troublesome and in some cases require a higher mixing ratio. Genesis 950 and water can be mixed as high as a 50/50 ratio. Typically though, pet stains need no more than 1/3 950 and the remaining 2/3 water. 

To clean pet stains, spray the stained area with a mixture of Genesis 950 and water. In this example, a mixture of 1/3 950 and 2/3 water was used.

Genesis 950 is a cleaner unlike any other. It is a green, surfactant based cleaner. This type of cleaner works without harsh chemicals and uses water as an activator. When this mixture is applied to a stain, the water makes the stain water soluble. When this process occurs, the Genesis 950 can then break the structural bonds of the stains to lift it from the surface. Once this happens, the stain can then be rinsed from the surface.

Being sold in concentrate form, Genesis 950 is the perfect cleaner for that frugal, dollar crunching shopper. With Genesis 950, you are paying for and getting product. Many cleaners on the market can contain up to 90% water. As a consumer, when you buy these products, you are paying more for a Brand name, colorful packaging and water. With Genesis 950 being concentrated, you are buying straight cleaning solution and then add the water as needed. The free spray bottle is the perfect tool for mixing your solution with water. 

For General cleaning it is recommended that Genesis 950 be mixed at a ratio of 1 part 950 to 7 parts water. General cleaning can include cleaning kitchens, bathrooms, appliances, doors, walls, spot cleaning and more. When broken down in this manner, 1 quart of Genesis 950 actually gives you 7 quarts of cleaning solution. With a quart of 950 priced at $23.75 when purchased directly from Amerikal, the breakdown of the concentrate mixed for general cleaning actually gives you 7 bottles of cleaning solution at $3.40 per bottle.

When cleaning requires a little bit more power, Genesis 950 can be mixed as high as a 50/50 mix. This is idea for pet stains, clothing stains, upholstery and carpet stains, and in auto detailing. A higher mixture will allow the 950 to really get into a stain and work hard to break it down. When mixing, you never want to go higher than a 50/50 mix. Water is the activating agent, so if you have more 950 than water in the mixture, your results will not be as satisfying. Typically, a mixture of 1/3 950 to 2/3 water will take care of tough stains.

While Genesis 950 can clean nearly all surfaces and all types of stains, one of the most popular uses of Genesis 950 is for removing pet stains and odors. Pet stains can be tricky and there are so many remedies and cleaners targeted for those types of stains. None of them work as well as Genesis 950 though. Unfortunately in this age of bloggers and DIYers, home remedies are made everywhere. This is unfortunate because they often give incorrect advice. Vinegar is plastered all over the internet as a means to remove pet stains. This is actually the worst thing a pet owner could ever use to remove pet stains. Vinegar is an acid based agent. It contains a pH level similar to the acid pH base found in urine. Animals, both cats and dogs, urinate in spots based on smell. If a cat or dog goes to the bathroom somewhere in the house, they will keep going in that spot until the odor is removed. If you clean with vinegar, you are only enhancing that odor due to the similar pH level and your pet will continue to go in that spot. Other cleaners recommended including household cleaners and enzymes also can not remove stains and odors like Genesis 950.

Carpet cleaning is another great use for Genesis 950. Genesis 950 works in a carpet cleaning machine better than any other carpet shampoo. Carpets gather dust, bacteria, dirt and so much more. When used in a carpet cleaning machine, Genesis 950 can remove all of this, making your carpets look and smell professionally cleaned. In doing so, Genesis 950 does this safely. There are no harsh chemicals left behind to cause illness or harm to you, your family or your pets. It is a safe, green cleaner. With machine type cleaning, it also does more than clean the carpet. It cleans the padding. Genesis 950 contains anti-bacterial cleaners which will kill mold and bacteria that might be present in the padding. 

If using Genesis 950 as a carpet cleaner, the savings are again incredible. Hiring a professional to clean your carpet can be costly. It can run up to $100 per room. On top of that, there are charges for different cleaners used. Whether is be a stain guard or an odor remover. Genesis 950 removes odor and kills bacteria without any extra add-ons. Even if your home is larger, you still save money using Genesis 950 as a 2.5 gallon cube is $60 when purchased directly. Cleaning your own carpet also lets you schedule your cleaning at your convenience. There's no need to work your schedule around waiting for a crew to come to your home. You can clean when you want based on your schedule. You can also ensure that tough areas are given extra attention, you have solution on hand to clean in the event of the always expected spill on the carpet after it has been cleaned. You also know your carpet is being cleaning with a safe solution. 

Genesis 950 is a versatile cleaner that anyone can use. Replace all the different cleaners in your pantry with one cleaner that does it all. Remove pet stains and odors. Make your carpets look and smell professionally cleaned. Use it in the garage to clean & degrease. The uses are endless!

About Me

My Photo

Genesis 950 is an all purpose cleaner that cleans like nothing else. It is a green, surfactant based cleaner. This means instead of attacking surfaces with harsh chemicals like bleach, vinegar, ammonia or soaps, it works with water to be absorbed into the stain and then alter the stains composition to break down the bonds of the stain. Not only does it remove the stain, but in the process it kills germs and bacteria associated with the stain. In turn, this also deodorizes the area. Genesis 950 is an all purpose cleaner with multiple uses. Among the most popular are carpet cleaning, pet stain and odor removal, and car detailing. However the uses are limitless when it comes to what you can clean with Genesis 950.
