Uses of Oxi Bleach
This OXI² Pre-Wash was developed and tested to remove hardened stains and smells caused by urine on carpets. Mammalian excretions such as blood, faeces, urine etc. consist of a combination of
ammonia, bacteria, hormones, and uric acid.
As the urine breaks down, the ammonia concentration increases and sulphur-containing organic chemical substances known as mercaptans are then released.
- The chemical structure of Urea
The chemical structure of urea is written as (NH2)2CO. This means that two nitrogen-containing, ammonia-derived molecules are joined to a carbon molecule that has a double bond to an oxygen molecule.
Dog urine contains urea, creatine, uric acid, carbohydrates, enzymes, fatty acids, hormones, sodium, potassium, chloride, magnesium, calcium and ammonia.
- Animal related marks and stenches
When a dog smells another dog's urine, it can detect the hormones, such as oestrogen or testosterone that is present in the urine. That stimulates their reaction to mark or remark the area.
DO NOT CLEAN such affected areas with products containing ammonia. For urine turns as explained above, into ammonia, react then on a molecular level to the chemical structure, worsening the urine
stench as it releases it in a more concentrated form.
For the above reasons, the Pierre @ Dieregesondheid OXI² PRE -WASH stain remover was developed, whereby it uses oxygen to remove and break the particles down.
