Skout’s Honor is excited to announce that NY Mag.com‘s, The Strategist, an obsessively researched online shopping and product discovery guide, has featured two of our cleaning products in “What Pet-Owners Need To Clean And Protect Their Furniture According to Experts”! Under the “Best pet-friendly furniture cleaning products” section, our Stain & Odor Remover and Cat Urine & Odor Destroyer made the cut!
All of the experts we spoke with agreed that it’s best to use pet-safe, natural products to clean your furniture, as many ingredients common in other cleaners (like bleach, ammonia, and formaldehyde) are toxic to cats and dogs. These sprays from Skout’s Honor come highly recommended from both Ellis and Schwab, who like that they’re non-toxic and specifically designed to eliminate odors and stains from pets.
Skout’s Honor is an environmentally and socially-conscious company.

Skout’s Honor knows that welcoming a new member of the family can be a challenging feat. When a new baby comes home, parents spend hours ‘nesting’ – decorating the nursery, washing linens and clothing, sanitizing bottles, vacuuming and safety-proofing various areas from room to room.
The same thing also happens when there’s a new puppy or adopted dog in the house! You pup-proof everything, making sure he or she doesn’t have access to dangerous TV & lamp cords, chemicals, valuables that could become chew toys, etc. You also spend time blocking off areas with nice furniture and rugs, to prevent marking incidents and expensive accidents from happening. They will potty-train in time, but what if it takes longer than you imagined it would? Here is a rundown of puppy cleaning essentials to have in your arsenal from Skout’s Honor, so that your new ‘fur’ baby will feel welcomed – and you’ll still feel at home, too!

OOOH, that smell!! Any pet owner who has had the [unwelcome] honor of dealing with a skunked animal knows that it can be one of the worst experiences for you and your pet. So with skunk season now upon us (February through March)…are you prepared if and when “Skunk” happens to you?
Mid-February is the prime mating season for striped, hog-nosed, and hooded skunks, which is why their signature smell is so common around this time of year. Used as a defense mechanism, skunks spray each other when competing for a mate, or when unreceptive to courting attempts. Oftentimes, curious dogs or cats find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time, and end up being the recipient of a skunk’s spray — and that’s when things can get crazy. Cleaning up a skunked animal is one thing, but once that skunked animal runs into your house and rolls around on the carpets, flooring and furniture to rid themselves of the odor, you’ve got a much bigger problem to deal with.
The age-old method of bathing your animal in tomato juice to soak out the odor may still work for some, but for most it’s not a realistic solution. Luckily, products like Skout’s Honor’s NEW Skunk Odor Eliminator can help knock out odors quickly and effectively to provide relief for both you and your pet. This special, award-winning formula breaks down and destroys skunk spray and odor molecules on contact and is safe to use on both skunked animals & surfaces!
More Skunk Facts:
Skunks are cat-sized or smaller; all of the five species found throughout North America can be identified by their distinctive black and white coloration of either stripes or spots.
Skunks are extremely nearsighted, yet have a very fine-tuned sense of smell.
Skunks are solitary, except when raising young or sharing a den for warmth.
Striped skunks, hog-nosed, and hooded skunks breed in February and March and the babies are born in May and June. Spotted skunks breed either later in the spring, in early summer, or in the fall — as is the case with western spotted skunks.
Skunks den in natural cavities like woodchuck burrows, hollow logs, and brush piles, as well as crevices in stone walls and under buildings.
A den is used only for brief periods because skunks are nomadic.
Once classified as members of the family that includes weasels, martens, and badgers, skunks are now placed in a family of their own.
Skunks can be active all year but will remain in dens during cold spells.
Skunks often tumble into window wells and are not able to climb out due to their nearsightedness and poor climbing ability. If a skunk is stuck in a window well, it is very easy to help them out.
Skunks follow their noses, so if a garage door is open, a skunk will likely amble in. If the skunk enters the garage, The HSUS recommends leaving a garage door open at night and sprinkling flour along the bottom of it so you can see exiting tracks.
