Odoban love
« on: May 18, 2010, 04:35:35 PM »
So one of my cages is the dreaded non-powder coated cages. You know the smell isnít really as bad as itís sometimes made out to be.  But itís definitely there if you stand next to it and sniff the metal.  With regular cleaning itís actually not so bad.

Iíd consider powercoating the cage but havenít gotten quotes lower than $240 and didnít want the hassle of spray painting and having to get new temporary cages for 16 rats.  (It was a $40 craigslist find steal Ė a 60ĒH x 36ĒW x 30ĒD Martins PDF450.  Three full floors and one shelf.)

But anyway, on to the Odoban.  I swore it was on every other post as I was catching up on the threads so I grabbed some at Home Depot over the weekend.   Now I can stand next to the cage and sniff and not smell anything.  Not-so-bad smell turned into non-existant smell. Yep, the stuff is crazy.

McCauley recommended it right?

I've yet to try it, my cages never smell that bad, usually if it does its just time to change the liners and litter box.

I can't believe that this has been up for a whole 3.5 hours and she hasn't seen it. I'll bet, wherever she is, that he O-Ban senses are tingling.  :yelcutelaugh:

It does have a scent but I'm not sure how to describe it. It kind of reminded me of this Aveeno oatmeal bath stuff. The neighbor came by while I was cleaning the cage and thought it smelled good.  My boyfriend who hates all scents said it didn't smell bad but made his eyes water.  His eyes stopped watering after I was done actively using it.  

It is kinda scary with the eyes though.  I think one of the label warnings said it can cause irreversable eye damage.  I put some saftey glasses on because I was using a scrub brush and I'm a clutz and get stuff everywhere no matter what I'm doing.

sooooorrry!!! i do go out sometimes!! hahaha

yes-- ode to odoban what a wonderful thing you are!!

there WAS a list on their site of everything it did indeed kill, and i know distemper, parvo, bird flu, swine flu, HIV, herpes simplex and lots of fun other stuff was on the list. i literally have no URIs in my ratties which is awesome (i give credit to my breeder on this one too-- but i think part of it is odoban kills all the crap haha) and literally there is NO smell on the cages. you could eat off those things! =)

oh and it smells like "eucalyptus" which is really just a nice light clean smell.

gotta love the odoban!!

 :wave2: Question! Is there another place you can buy it besides Sam's Club? I found mine in the pet section of a regular Walmart, but they only had the biodegradable non-toxic wipes (which I use for daily pee puddles) and the hard surface cleaner in the magenta spray bottle (for full cleanings). Are the non pet products in another part of the store? I was looking in the cleaner section but couldn't find it. Also, in case my future Walmart doesn't have those few pet products, is there another place I can purchase Odoban?

So far, I really like the product! the only smell that occurs in the cage is from the pee-soaked hammies  :yelcutelaugh:

Of course, we don't have a Sam's club OR a Home Depot. Just a Lowes. I wonder if i can get it there....otherwise I'll have to stalk walmart. I hate living in the UP sometimes. I can't imagine what it'd be like living anywhere outside of Marquette :worry:

I will definitely have to stop at the Home Depot before I go back to college!  My college is in a rinky dink town that doesn't have ANYTHING, so I stock up before I leave.  McCauley is going to make us all into believers.  haha

So since this kills all sorts of things... Would it hurt insects? I read that hermit crabs are so closely related to insects that insecticides can kill them... so I worry about everything now... :p My family was getting this dust sorta stuff you spread around the edges of your walls that like cuts insects up internally and kills them. (we have ants) Totally don't want that around them.. But would this be safe?

Like seriously, Mccauley, do they pay you for this? lol
