Cleaning rabbit urine off tile floors

When Sandra from Lincoln University in Pennsylvania contacted me about cleaning rabbit urine off her tile floor, it reminded me of when my husband and I were first married and bought a rabbit as a pet. Keeping your home clean when you have a rabbit is, to say the least, difficult. “Just HAD to stop cleaning and tell you what you already know: you have an AMAZING product in CLR Calcium, Lime & Rust Remover! Rabbit urine is notorious for being difficult to clean. Your product cleaned my tile floor where my rabbit had an 'accident.' I even used a scrubbing pad on it and it didn't help at all. To think I scrubbed and scrubbed and all I had to do was use CLR and wipe it away! So easy to use. I am definitely buying more CLR and telling all my friends about your fantastic product. THANK you!”

CLR Calcium, Lime & Rust Remover, Sandra, can make quick work of stains other than rabbit urine. CLR will clean tough calcium and lime deposits as well as surface rust stains on a number of surfaces. Before cleaning the entire surface always test CLR on a small, hidden area of the surface you wish to clean. To use CLR, while wearing household rubber gloves, mix equal amounts of CLR and warm water. Apply the solution directly to the calcium, lime or rust stain with a brush, cloth or sponge and rinse promptly with cold, clean water. Repeat the process if necessary. Never leave CLR on any surface for more than two minutes. Our product has been scientifically proven to dissolve mineral deposits within the first two to five minutes, one layer at a time.

CLR contains no inorganic phosphates, hazardous solvents, or environmentally harmful surfactants. Instead, CLR contains a proprietary blend of ingredients, which exhibit more positive environmental and human health characteristics than conventional cleaning formulas. Do not use CLR on any natural stone or marble including cultured marble, terrazzo, colored grout, any painted, coated, sealed or metallic glazed surfaces, plastics, laminates, Formica, Corian, aluminum, galvanized metals, nickel, oil rubbed bronze, brass, copper, leaded crystal or any damaged or cracked surface. CLR is corrosive. Avoid contact with wood, clothing, wallpaper and carpeting. Some laminated surfaces are coated with a synthetic surface which may be affected by rust removers such as CLR.

Cleaning mold and mildew in your bathroom

Lynne contacted us on Facebook after cleaning mold and mildew stains in her bathroom.  “Just tried CLR Mold & Mildew Stain Remover on our bathroom ceiling, walls and tiles. Best stuff ever and it doesn't smell either. I have tried so many other brands and nothing worked until today and I have to say this is the best ever product. It’s pretty sad when a cleaning product makes your day. BUT IT DID. Thanks CLR.”

Lynne, I’m glad that CLR Mold & Mildew Stain Remover could make your day! Our product is designed to remove tough mold and mildew stains from a variety of surfaces. CLR Mold & Mildew Stain Remover is also bleach-free and part of the EPA’s Safer Choice Program recognizing the product as a safer alternative to chemicals.

The foam sprayer on CLR Mold & Mildew Stain Remover allows for a more direct application which prevents splash back and spores from spreading in the air. Keep in mind that in addition to using this product in bathrooms, you can also use it in kitchens and basements on painted walls, ceramic tile, hardwood floors and baseboards as well as fabrics.  CLR Mold & Mildew Stain Remover will eliminate stains from glass, metal, brick, concrete, marble, laminated countertops, fully cured and oil-based painted surfaces, hard plastics, automobile tires, wood, grout and fiberglass.
