Hey everybuddy.  It’s me…Ernie.  Y’know…nobuddy likes a stinky house, right?  I know the mom is concerned about the smell in our house.  She doesn’t want people to come in and say… “oh, you must have cats.”   So, she…and we…were happy when we were contacted by the nice people from Fresh Wave® asking if we’d like to try their newest Fresh Wave® products and tell everybuddy about them.

What’s Fresh Wave®?

Fresh Wave® odor eliminators have been around for awhile, but now the Fresh Wave® people are introducing a line of new all natural products to get rid of odors.  They’re made with water and essential plant oils, and contain no harsh chemicals or harmful ingredients.  They’re non-toxic and non-hazardous…safe for people, pets and the planet.  We love eco-friendly products!

We were sent 3 of the new Fresh Wave® products to try:

  • Odor Removing Packs.  These packs are great for small spaces like car interiors, gym bags, shoes, closets, trash cans…anywhere nasty odors may be.  Just toss a pack in and it will work for 30-60 days to remove odors.
  • Odor Removing Spray.  This spray can be used anywhere immediate odor removal is needed…clothing, pet bedding, sports gear, shoes and trash cans.  Just a few sprits and odors are gone.
  • Odor Removing Gel.  For 24/7 odor removal, the gel can be placed in a room where nasty odors are the strongest.   The gel works for 60-90 days removing odors from smoke, trash, food, bathrooms, basements…including stinky litterboxes.   Hey…our litterboxes don’t stink, do they?


The mom put the Fresh Wave® gel on the counter in our litterbox room which is also the laundry room.  It has a fresh, pleasant smell…not overpowering at all.  Fresh Wave® is gonna keep our litterbox room smelling great.


You can find these new Fresh Wave® products exclusively at Target stores.  For more information regarding Fresh Wave®, you can visit their website at

  1. Interesting. I am always a little leary of things that have essential oils because cats don’t metabolize those very well, so I’d have to look into it more, but it is nice that there are options

    • And essential oils have been known to be harmful (see our Catster Dryer Sheets article)…hmmm…

      But if they’ve done the research, then maybe?

  2. not that the boyz stink but I’m definitely going to check some of those products out…

  3. We would love a chance at winning since I live in the only state in the country without a Target!

  4. Ahh, the version for the sink edge sounds perfect.

  5. well that looks interesting….mom may have to check it out – those packs would be ideal for her car (which occasionally smells like hound) MOL

  6. Yep, smelly is our Mom’s greatest fear…. and she loves it when people say they can’t smell anything!
