I have to admit that I use for remove the odor of my dog. This product had great promise but was disappointing. The directions indicate that you would be able to vacuum the powder after applying "a generous amount of powder to the soiled area".
I absolutely love this product! We rescue senior and special needs animals and are always cleaning up messes. This wipes up 100% clean and smells great. It's easy to use and lives up to everything that it says it does and more.
