Love your pets but tired of your house smelling like your dog or cat? See why we are huge fan of Fresh Wave's line of natural odor fighting products here!

In our household, I constantly feel like I’m fighting pet smells. Don’t get me wrong, I love my dogs and couldn’t imagine a household without them, but that doesn’t mean I want a house that smells like…dogs. We have found that with constant cleaning we can normally keep it at bay, but it feels like before we have company we are lighting candles and hoping for the best. Even with a clean house, there isn’t much you can do about dog beds, carpet, and some of your dog’s favorite areas. Recently, however, we found the perfect solution for fighting back against not only pet smells, but smells in general – Fresh Wave!

Fresh Wave: What is It?

Are you tired of dealing with nasty smells in your home? Make your home smell amazing naturally with Fresh Wave! For over 20 years, they have been making families happy by removing odors using only all natural ingredients – taking the best from nature itself to leave your home smelling fresh and clean. As well, their products never use harsh chemicals and are always non-toxic, making them safe for homes with small children and pets. To learn more about Fresh Wave, watch the video below!

Fresh Wave Odor Removing Gel

Have you ever found that certain areas in your home smell more than others? For us, this is usually the bathrooms or areas where the dogs seem to love hanging out. Even though we constantly keep these areas clean, sometimes they need a little extra help.  Rather than constantly buy expensive air fresheners, we fight back against these smells with Fresh Wave Odor Removing Gel. Using only natural ingredients, this non-toxic gel formula removed odors without using harsh chemicals or just masking the odor, creating a safe environment that smells amazing for both humans and animals alike. Best of all, it works 24/7 to keep your house smelling great. All you have to do is remove the lid, open the seal, and then replace the slotted lid to have your preferred area in your home smelling great. You can buy the Fresh Wave Odor Removing Gel on the Fresh Wave website for $8.99 or at your local Target store for $9.99.

Fresh Wave Odor Removing Candle

Do you love to burn candles at home to get rid of unpleasant smells? Rather than just cover the odor, remove it with a Fresh Wave Odor Removing Candle.  Using only natural ingredients, it can get rid of even the toughest of odors, including garlic, onion, fish, bathroom smells, and of course, unpleasant pet smells. I love burning this candle on my desk not just to get rid of smells, but for relaxation since it leave the entire office smelling so fresh and clean, something that is a big deal since both Ivi and Rylie love hanging out under our desks, even when they don’t smell the greatest. As well, the candle looks pretty and doesn’t get in the way! Currently you can buy the Fresh Wave Odor Removing Candle on the Fresh Wave website for only $14.99.

Fresh Wave Laundry Booster

Are you often dealing with stinky laundry? With a puppy in the household, it feels like stinky laundry is a constant during potty training. Sometimes, even normal laundry detergent doesn’t get rid of that ‘unique’ smell that comes from puppy accidents. This is one reason that I very quickly fell in love with Fresh Wave’s Laundry Booster.  Sometimes, laundry detergent needs an extra boost to get rid of tough smells, especially pet bedding, sports apparel, and other pet items. With just 2 to 4 caps in the wash or rinse cycle, you can get rid of just about any bad odor, even in front-loading washers (it also helps freshen smelly washers too). After using this with some of our smelly dog towels, I can’t imagine doing this sort of wash without it now, since everything comes out smelling fresh and clean, including the washer!  You can buy the Fresh Wave Laundry Booster for $9.99 on the Fresh Wave website.

Fresh Wave Odor Removing Packs

How many of you think your kitchen trash smells…well…less pleasant? I will freely admit, our trash rarely smells good, especially after the day after for various food cuttings. Rather than deal with the smell or take out a bag that’s far from full, you can get rid of these bad smells with the Fresh Wave Odor Removing Packs. Just toss one of these odor removing packs in a small space and enjoy a lot less odor for 30 – 60 days! Like all Fresh Wave products, it removes odors without just masking them, and is made from only all natural ingredients. We currently use these pads in all the trash cans in our home and have had great results so far! You can buy a package of  Fresh Wave Odor Removing Packs at your local Target store or the Fresh Wave website for only $9.99.

Fresh Wave Vacuum Beads

Do you love the idea of your room smelling amazing after vacuuming? Make your vacuum the perfect home air freshener with the Fresh Wave Vacuum Beads. Just put beads in your vacuum canister and let your vacuum do all the magic. Just replace the beads monthly or as often as needed to keep each of your rooms smelling great after you vacuum. Currently, you can buy the Fresh Wave Vacuum Beads on the Fresh Wave website for only $12.

Fresh Wave Odor Removing Spray

Let’s face it, sometimes there are items in our home that even clean sometimes hold scents. Items like dog beds, areas where our dogs love to lay, or just items in our home that are well loved. In our home, we have a giant bean bag chair which the girls love to lay on (even though they technically aren’t allowed on it since it is hard to clean). With the Fresh Wave Odor Removing Spray, you can remove odors in seconds using their unique fabric-safe, all-natural formula. Best of all, it comes in a travel size too, making it great for car trips or musty smelling clothing. Currently, you buy the Fresh Wave Odor Removing Spray at your local Target store or Fresh Wave website for only $7.99.

    These sound great! With two dogs in the house, we are constantly fighting pet odors!

    I may not notice it, but my cats stink up the place. I only notice the smells in the litterbox. This might be helpful. I’d worry about that tonberry next to your computer if I were you.

    I could sure use these products. With 5 fur babies in my home it can get a little ripe at times!

    oh goodie, next time I’m going to Target – should be real soon – I’m picking up some of these Fresh Wave products – I want them all!!!!

    We have two cats and sometimes their litter boxes smell. My hubby is usually the person who notices the smell when he walks in the door.

    This product sounds great. I do have a fur baby in our home and really need these products!

    I’m definitely going to check this product out! With 2 cats, a bird and a hedgehog in my house, I need some help! I’m hoping this ships to Canada, though!

    I’m going to get some of this ASAP! I was just folding some “clean” laundry last night and was feeling dismayed because our smelly front loading washer is making our clothes stink. I use all of the recommended cleaning products and techniques, but it isn’t helping. I think the Fresh Wave laundry booster will save us from stinky clothes!

    • Susan Bewley August 23, 2016 at 8:57 am - Reply

      It is the only thing I have found that seems to work with our front loading washer. I cannot STAND when it has that horrible smell!

  11. Lisa F. August 23, 2016 at 12:58 pm - Reply

    All of these products look great! I haven’t tried odor eliminating candles before and would be curious as to their effectiveness. Thanks!

    Our front loader washer and clothes also smells. This was a very informative and useful post.

  13. Kim Dalessandro August 23, 2016 at 9:29 pm - Reply

    I could use that for a few areas in my home. The utility room where the cat litter box is smells bad at times. The vacuum canister could use refreshing too. Looks like a great solution!

    This product sounds amazing, I think every home, office and dorm should have some of this product to help keep things in order..

  15. Barrie August 23, 2016 at 11:43 pm - Reply

    This sounds great for getting rid of pet odor. I’ve never heard of this brand but it sounds like every household with pets needs it in their house!

    I would put Fresh Wave in my vacuum. The rooms I vacuum would smell nice.

    Like the commercial on tv says, I am nose blind. However, I know I have all sorts of doggy odors. I have a pup that goes outside and then comes back in to do his business!! I love all the different products. They pretty much cover everything~~

    Natural sounds good to me. I really dislike the fake perfume scent of most air fresheners.

    I need to remember to look for Fresh Wave. They are located in Bed Bath & Beyond, buybuyBaby, and Target.

    I love that this is a natural product. I’d love to try it 🙂

    One of my dogs is a senior of more than 15 years. He sleeps on a big Orris Pet Bed right by my feet. I bathe him of course, but poor beloved darling – sometimes he just stinks. I could use tis product!

  22. Katrina Weiss August 24, 2016 at 6:48 pm - Reply

    I want to try all these products! I don’t know which one would be my favorite, probably either the vacuum beads or the odor removing packs.

  23. Maria Appleby August 24, 2016 at 6:54 pm - Reply

    I was not even aware of Fresh Wave products until I came across the contest! I’m so happy that this product is truly “animal friendly”!

  24. Christina Moore August 25, 2016 at 9:34 am - Reply

    I would love to try this product, I have 2 cats, I keep their litter box in the laundry room and it can get pretty smelly sometimes.

  25. Laura August 25, 2016 at 10:13 pm - Reply

    I really want to try these products! We have four pets, so keeping the house smelling fresh and clean is always a constant battle!

    This really sounds like a great product. I have one dog but he can when he wants to not always be potty trained even though he knows not to go in the house it can be smelly at times

    I have heard so many great things about this! Would love to try it out! We have 4 dogs! It is much needed!

    I have been trying to switch to using only natural products for all my household needs. It’s great to see that there’s something natural I can use to deal with the less than pleasant side of having two wonderful cats and an adorable pup.

  29. Amy Orvin August 27, 2016 at 2:40 pm - Reply

    I want to try these products just for the fact that they are non-toxic and chemical – free. That is so important to me because I have pets and would not want to have them by harmful things.

  30. Melissa Crisp August 28, 2016 at 8:03 pm - Reply

    The vacuum beads would be awesome. I always feel like my vacuum stinks no matter what I do. I also feel like you with the lighting candles. So I’d definitely love to try their products. Let’s face it, I’m not getting rid of my animals.

  31. Judy Schechter August 30, 2016 at 2:29 am - Reply

    These sound like great products! I would love to try the gel and odor removing packs in our bathroom! We currently use air freshener spray, but that only covers the smell for a short amount of time! Thanks for your great review!

    Sounds like a nice product

    This sounds amazing! We have two dogs and a cat, so we definitely need this. Now we may be fostering another dog too. We just love them so much, but they definitely come with smells

    Great article and now I feel that maybe my sunroom has a chance not to smell anymore. Would love to win these products.

    I think Fresh Wave is wonderful. I have tried some of the products. I also gave some for gifts. I do not like a lot of scent in products, so this is for me.

    Wow they make all of these Products? Wonderful! I can use all of them, I often am burning Candles to help my Rooms smell better, especially if I know that Company is coming too. I have a new Puppy, and He is not House trained yet. I am in need of these Products! Thanks for the excellent review, I will definitely look into getting these!

  41. Lynne B September 5, 2016 at 2:22 pm - Reply

    These products sound exactly like what I need. Not just because of the dog but also from lingering cooking odors. The latter being one of my biggest “smelly” pet peeves!

  42. Danny Rubio September 7, 2016 at 1:56 am - Reply

    We have 4 dogs and 1 cat… they all do their business outside, that’s the good part. But the things they bring in the house, from dog/cat poop, bugs, leaves, grass you name it. So it does start to smell. The worse is when it rains, that wet dog smell is the worst.
    Also… my daughter and I have Asthma, is this Asthma friendly..?

  43. Jill Myrick September 7, 2016 at 4:53 pm - Reply

    I love that Fresh Wave so many great items. I would love to try all of them. Especially the laundry booster and the spray which I think would be perfect for washing and deodorizing my pet beds.

    I could really use this, I have a super smelly long haired cat and need something that works!

    I’m always so self conscious about how the house smells. I love my pets but cats really do stink up a place even if your diligent with the cat boxes. Thanks for the information.

    I’ve never tried this products, but it seems like a very good idea! We have a dog at home, and even though we clean and vacuum every week, our home sometimes smells a lot like a dog. We’ve tried various air fresheners, but nothing works. Maybe I’ll check it out.

  52. Linda Szymoniak July 14, 2017 at 1:20 am - Reply

    I’ve heard of this brand, but haven’t tried it – yet. Sounds like a great solution for a home with three dogs and three cats. LOL! Lately the smallest of the group – my cat, Moko – has been making the most smell. My poor girl is having medical issues and had some accidents on the cat tree. I’m still trying to get rid of the smell. I need to check into Fresh Wave.

  53. Kim Pincombe-Cole September 16, 2017 at 6:45 pm - Reply

    Wow- I need to run to Target & pick up a couple of these. No matter what I do, I still smell our dogs in our house…
