Get Rid of Carpet Odor, Stains, and Spills with Nok-Out

Get rid of carpet odor

Make Your Carpets Like New Again With Nok-Out!

Carpet gives a home such a delightful warm look and feel! It can be a real pleasure to everyone in the home. But carpets can also suffer from spills, accidents, and although pets are family, they can be really hard on your carpet. Does your carpet have pet odors? Is cat urine making your whole home smell? Did the professional cleaning you just paid for not get rid of pet odors? Non-toxic Nok-Out can remove carpet odor on contact!  Often stains come right out also. You can remove carpet odors safely and easily with Nok-Out. And if your carpet needs sanitizing, SNiPER is great for that.


Locating exactly where the trouble is located is the essential first step.  Nokout works when it comes into direct contact with the source of the odor.  So if you walk into a room and it stinks because of carpet odor, it won’t do you much good to spray the air with Nok-Out.  Find the source of the odor and treat that area and Nok-Out will remove carpet odor for you.  

A good way to locate urine odor (from pet or people) is by using a UV (black light) flashlight.  Go in at night and shine the light around and urine will glow a pale green.  You may also see purple – that is detergent of some sort.

Nok-Out has a ph of 8.5 and likes a mildly alkaline environment. If you have previously used acidic cleansers such as vinegar or citric cleansers, you can help Nok-Out perform better by first neutralizing the acid residue with a mild baking soda and water solution. Club soda works or you can mix a teaspoon of soda into a pint of water. Spray it on the area and allow it to sit for 5 – 10 minutes.

The last pre-cleaning you should do is to vacuum thoroughly. Seventy percent of soils in a carpet are not soluble in water and can be vacuumed up easily. Pay special attention to getting up the pet hair. That hair can be really stinky!

How to Apply

Small Problems

If you catch it quickly, and the odor source is on the surface and has not penetrated deep into the pile, you can spray some dilute Nok-Out right on the spot. We don’t recommend spraying full strength Nok-Out directly on carpet fibers. Allow it to sit for 2 – 3 minutes. Use a cloth and provide gentle agitation of the area. Then use an old towel to help blot up excess liquid.

Bigger Issues

Some pet issues need bigger treatment. If your large dog left a large puddle, then most likely, gravity has pulled that puddle down. However far down that puddle goes, Nok-Out needs to go there as well, because Nok-Out is a real deodorizer that can only do its work if it is in contact with the source. If it is a large puddle, get some old towels and begin blotting up as much of the urine as possible before applying Nok-Out. Dilute Nok-Out by three (or four) parts water to one part Nok-Out and pour it over the area. Allow gravity to pull the solution down and then let it sit for 10 – 20 minutes. Come back later with dry towels and start blotting up the excess. Put fans on it to speed the drying process. Repeat as needed.

Be Aware

Urine is food to many microbes and once they get a hold of it, they can change that urine to ammonia  (Ever smell that while cleaning a cat  litter box?)  Ammonia can leech the dyes right out of the carpet fibers.  You may think that you have a yellow stain, but actually, the other colors are gone and that yellow is the only color left.  There is no fixing this.  It is not a stain.

Using a Home Carpet Cleaning Machine

This is a great idea because it spreads a dilute solution of Nok-Out (or SNiPER if you feel like you need sanitize your carpet) very evenly throughout your carpet.  We have a blog article detailing how to go about this here.

Sniper Eliminated Our Mold Problems!

We’ve used SNiPER disinfectant for several years. It works great. It has eliminated our mold problems and, still, we use it to keep our wooden cutting boards safe.

Completely Eliminate a Horrible Smell

Mary Hunt introduced me to Nok-Out years ago and I am still amazed at how it can completely eliminate a horrible smell.

Yesterday I hosed some dust off a plastic laundry basket. I left it outside to dry for a bit and then returned it to the garage.

A few hours later I walked into the garage and the entire place reeked of cat pee! I did not realize that the neighborhood tom cat had come by and sprayed my basket. It was so bad that I was ready to trash it, but I thought I would try to spray it down with Sniper first. I doused it liberally and left it overnight. Ta Da! Absolutely no smell this morning!

Even after all these years, I am still amazed every time your product works on a smell as terrible as cat spray!

Thank you, Ted!

“Nok-Out Saved My New Car!”

Thank you for creating such a great product. I would and will recommend this to everyone I know. My son left raw meat in my car for 4 days and I thought that my new car was ruined, but after talking with you and using the product, I can now get in my car and the only thing that I smell is a clean, disinfected smell! Thank you for saving my new car!

Christmas tree and Raggedy Ann

We have an artificial Christmas tree that’s still gorgeous but old. Putting it up always bothers my asthma and irritation from getting scratched is not pleasant. Last year I sprayed the tree and the “old tree” smell disappeared. I had purchased Sniper on Mary Hunts advice and it really took care of the basement (moldy) smell! Great! My daughters vintage dolls with cloth bodies had spots of mold or mildew, these are dolls my grandchildren play with. Oh my goodness! Sprayed the doll’s bodies and yarn hair, and the next day they all smelled great, moldy spots gone ! These dolls were over 30 years old and now look soooo good! Would recommend Sniper for other uses, too. Doggy rug smells gone! Smelly shoe odors gone. Grateful to Mary Hunts column for letting us know. 😊👍⭐️

Rotten Potato Smell Gone!

There cannot be anything worse than potatoes that are forgotten and rot. Any pet I have ever had that had an accident cannot compare. Nok-Out eliminated the odor quickly. What a wonderful product!

My Mildew Stain Disappeared!

I brought in the plants for winter and when it was time to move them back outside in the spring, I had a mildew stain on the carpet. I received my Nok-Out Carpet cleaner and sprayed the stain and let it sit for 10 minutes. When I returned to scrub the stain it was completely gone!! Woo hoo!! Thank you, Mary Hunt, for introducing me to this wonderful product!

Best Odor Control for carpet

Nok-Out and SNiPER are both great products that I use in my carpet cleaning biz to remove odor in carpets. It works great against pet urine odor! It doesn’t cause discoloration and always works. Sniper kills mold and removes the odor in carpets as well. Great products

Cats Get Old!

Cats get old. Things happen. Nok-Out was recommended to me by a friend in another state. I Will never go to the pet store again to try any other product. Nok-Out is IT! I told my Veterinarian about it. I love how fast it arrives after ordering. I ordered three times because we are still working on issues, but at least the house doesn’t SMELL! Amazing product. THANK YOU!

I Am Amazed at The Results!

I learned about Nok-Out from Mary Hunt’s Everyday Cheapskate column and had to try it. Shipping was so fast and your customer service is OUTSTANDING! I am amazed at the results! I even filled a tiny spray bottle to keep in my car. I won’t be wasting my money on any other cleaners anymore. You have a lifetime customer here. Thank you so much!

Aviary Parasites

I wrote Ted about parasites in my Pigeon coop: ” I’ve used Sniper for parvo elimination before but I wanted to know if it would kill tricomoniasis parasites in a pigeon coop.” Ted wrote back that he wasn’t sure whether Sniper would kill it, but that Sniper is known to kill giardia – another parasite – so he thought maybe it might, and for sure, it wouldn’t harm any of my birds. I want to tell you that I did use Sniper in my pigeon coop and it seems that it did the trick! No further illnesses after spraying down my coop a couple of times!
We also recently had a partial basement flood. We had cat litter and poop, rabbit poop etc sitting in the water for more than 24 hours. Once we removed the water my basement smelled like a zoo! I sprayed Sniper everywhere using a fogger and all I can say is WOW! My husband had doubts that the smell would go away.

Thank you Sniper!

Nok-Out Removed Old Dog Urine Odor

I have an Electrolux rug shampooer and was trying to remove old odors of dog urine in my oriental carpets. I shampooed them then put a concentration of 4-1 water to Nok-Out in the tank and went back over them. No more odor!! Worked great! Was sooo happy!

Removed All The Feral Cat Urine

Sniper has been AMAZING. I was able to completely remove all the feral cat urine scent from the carpets, mattresses, clothing, and toys. It worked beautifully and left no smell, no fumes, and didn’t leave any discoloration. Sniper is now my cleaner of choice and I use it everywhere to clean and sanitize as well as freshen the air. I even use it in my daughter’s gym shoes and soccer bag. Thank you so much. Seriously the best product on the market.

Sniper Removed Old Water Odors, Mold & Mildew

I have been using Sniper in the Offshore oil industry as both a disinfectant and a deodorizer for years. It has eliminated old water smells of toilets and bathrooms not used in a year where the water sat and molded mildewed and stank. As well as being injected into our old quarters ac vents to prevent mold buildup. Always worked better than anything comparable and well worth the price.
