 Purr-Fect Odor Control With Nok-Out or SNiPER

One of the great things about cats is that they are usually good about using the litter box. One of the awful things about cats is cleaning their litter box. The ammonia smell from the urine is eye watering. The general stench often means you can smell “Cat” in a home as soon as you walk in the front door. It doesn’t have to be that way. With either Nok-Out or SNiPER you can reliably get rid of litter box odor from your home. Here’s how:


The location of the litter box is an important aspect of preventing problems using the box. Site the cat’s box away from food receptacles, and away from windows and doors, which rival cats might view. Allow your cats a little peace and privacy where noise levels are usually low, and where family activities are not occurring.

Your cat may avoid or urinate near its box, if the substrate becomes too soiled, the smell of urine too concentrated by a cover, if the box is too small, or if there are too many cats per box. If your cat loves his/her litter, if the box is well placed, and all is going well (except for the urine odor), you are ready to begin using Nok-Out.


First, empty the litter box and wipe it clean of litter. Spray Nok-Out on the bottom of the clean litter box and allow it to air dry. (Cats do not like cleaners that leave a disinfectant or ‘masking’ odor. Cleaning too thoroughly may also take away the ‘tail pheromone’ that cats leave to assure themselves this is a good place to eliminate.) When the box has dried, fill it with a litter that your cat is accustomed to and likes. Lightly spray the top of the litter. Every time you remove solid wastes or clumps, spray again lightly. Nok-Out is odor free, and leaves no remnant smell to offend your cats! However, Nok-Out does have residual effects that continue to combat odors long after it is dry. It will extend the life of your litter because no odor will affront you or your pet, and the box will remain sanitary and clean. SNiPER destroys bacteria, viruses, fungus spores and germs that cause odor, and can create disease problems.

What if the Cat Needs Spraying?

You may spray Nok-Out directly on a cat’s fur to remove odors. Nok-Out is non-toxic and will not affect skin or fur and it won’t hurt them if they lick it off. When bathing your cat, add 1 cup to bath water for continual odor removal and sanitizing of skin and fur from surface bacteria and viruses. (Always protect the eyes when using any product!)

When used according to the directions above, Nok-Out eliminates organic and inorganic sources of odor through a process of oxidization. As long as you can get Nok-Out to come into direct contact with the source of the odor, it will do a great job for you. Nok-Out is cumulative in its odor elimination effects, is hypoallergenic, and safe to use on and around your household animals. With Nok-Out or SNiPER, you can get rid of litter box odor in your home safely.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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 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!

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

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!

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!

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. 😊👍⭐️

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!

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!
