Where can I use OBT?
OBT will perform well almost anywhere you can think of using it. We recommend using it nearly everywhere in a home or office including bathrooms, kitchens and closets. We also recommend using it in campers, RV’s, tents, boats and just about everywhere odor is a problem.

Is Odor BreakTHRU safe?
The active ingredient in Odor BreakTHRU is used in hospitals, food processing centers, dairy farms and the government. Having said that, like all cleaning and odor products, you must keep Odor BreakTHRU away from children and pets.

How long will OBT last in the bottle?
If stored unopened and in a cool dark place, OBT will last for up to two years. Once opened, we recommend using it within 6 months. If OBT is exposed to sunlight, the odor eliminating power may be reduced requiring additional applications.

Can I spray OBT directly on my pets?
No. Please do not spray Odor BreakTHRU on pets. We do not think it will irritate or harm your pets but, better safe than sorry.

Can I spray OBT directly on surfaces where my pet sleeps or plays?
ABSOLUTELY YES. That is one of the exciting uses of Odor BreakTHRU. OBT works great on pet beds, scratching posts, litter boxes and almost everywhere your pet will bring their scent to.

Will OBT keep my cat from using her litter box if I spray the litter or the box?
Cats are finicky creatures and who knows why they do things sometimes. We use OBT on our cats litter box and have had no issues. OBT was developed for use in and around litter boxes to eliminate foul litter odors.

Can I use OBT on fabrics?
Absolutely Yes, with the exception of silks, some linens and some wools. We always recommend testing a small, inconspicuous area by applying OBT to it, letting it dry and observing if any negative changes occur to the fabrics.

Can I use OBT on my bed?
If you have persistent odor on your bed, follow the OBT instructions for fabric use. Apply liberally and then you MUST wash the bed sheets or comforter prior to sleeping on them.

Can I use OBT on my carpet?
Absolutely yes. Closely follow the instructions for use on carpets based on the type of odor you are trying to eliminate.

Will OBT damage the color on my furniture?
OBT has not damaged any of the fabrics we tested. However, we cannot possibly test all fabrics. We strongly recommend following the instructions for use on fabrics. OBT will not damage wood as long as it is wiped and not allowed to dry on the wood. Since it contains water, it may leave water marks on wood if left to dry on the wood.

Will OBT remove mothball odor?
YES. OBT is one of the only products on the market with will eliminate mothball odor. However, you must remove all of the mothballs and liberally apply OBT. It may require multiple applications.

Will OBT kill mold and mildew?
It is illegal for any product to claim to kill mold without very expensive EPA registration. OBT does not have EPA registration and therefore we cannot make any kill claims. OBT works extremely well at reducing or eliminating mold and mildew stains and odors.
