Help!!!!! how do I get rid of a stinky dog scent in a small hallway?

We recently moved into a new home. The previous owner had a dog and the hallway smells so stinky to me. I spray constantly and burn candles but once the sprays and candles scent goes away the dog smell comes back. Ughhhhhhhhhh!

  • rose, I buy a product direct from janitorial stores and I highly recommend that. It takes away any smell, including mold and mildew.   I had to go back through Answers to find the product name.   I found this question and my response is Active.  LOL!

    I Googled my name, Cafemom and pet odors... LOL!

  • If it's carpeted it's going to be really hard to get rid of the smell. You could try a commercial carpet cleaner that might get down into the padding, but I doubt anything less than that will work. Have you tried Scentsy products? My son has a stuffed animal with a sachet in it from them and his room stays smelling nice for a long time (he's a teenage boy, so otherwise it smells like stinky gym socks, but he's special needs on a 1st-2nd grade level so he doesn't mind the bear). I'm not very familiar with their products - someone gave him the bear and sachets, but they might have something that would be long lasting to keep in the hallway.

  • I've had good luck with some of the unscented odor eliminator thingies that stick up on the wall. I think they're called Renew, or something with Renew in the name. Look in the smell good aisle at Wal-Mart or the grocery store. I like those ones because I can't stand most flowery scents like candles that cover up odors.

  • ODOBAN. I got mine at Walmart. My carpet guys swear by it and it's not just for carpets. Sam's Club has it too
