Pets are a gift to the world we measly humans simply do not deserve. They are free of judgment, are forgiving to a fault, have an unlimited supply of unconditional love to bestow upon us...

...and tend to pee on stuff that they really, really shouldn't and OH GOD DID THE PUPPY PEE ON THE COUCH *AGAIN*???

Luckily, the world has bestowed upon us yet another gift, one *all* of us with pee-happy pets deserve, in fact: Rocco & Roxie Professional Strength Stain & Odor Eliminator, a product with a seemingly cult-like following thanks to how ridiculously effective it is at — you guessed it — eliminating stains and odor.

amazon.com

Whether you're in the throes of house-training a new pup or your pet is having accidents due to behavioral or medical problems (in which case, please see your vet ASAP, of course), if you've ever lived with a furry companion, you've probably had at least one experience with yellow (or brown 😨 ) accidents in the house. Or perhaps a hefty helping of hairball on your brand-new white rug? Welp — ::flies in with superhero cape on and Rocco & Roxie's Stain & Odor Eliminator in hand:: — no longer must you have to live in fear of your floors, carpeting, and furniture being ruined forevermore by pet stains and lingering smells. No, but seriously!

The product has a sizable following of satisfied pet owners living their best stain- and stink-free life, with over 4,200(!) five-star reviews on Amazon.

Here's how it works: First up, test a small spot on the surface area of whatever you're cleaning. Long as color from the material you're cleaning doesn't come off, you'll want to soak up as much of the urine/stain with an absorbent towel. Then spray a considerable amount on the affected area, let it sit for five to ten minutes, and blot with a cloth before letting it air-dry. RIP, pee stain! 💀 And for more intense odor problems, you'll just ramp it up a notch, using more of the product and letting it sit for at least an hour. Then the directions instruct you to fold a towel over the area and place a weighted object above it so it really absorbs all the residual liquid. Once dry, vacuum and repeat the process if necessary.

Plenty of people confirm it blows the competition out of the (yellow) water:

amazon.com

"Works like a charm. Follow directions carefully. No damage to carpet or lingering order. Happy camper :-) Our dog is being re-trained with this product. So far no re-marking. Only needed to use it a few times. I'm not into the scientific kind of review of this but I'm glad that this product outdid others the first time I used it. (I've had others that just didn't work, i.e., discolored carpet and couch: Yikes! And left an odor that was less than desirable and exacerbated the odor of the urine.) Soak up as much from first contact; use product and re-treat if necessary." —Jojo

"I have a cat who does not like change and some 'new to me' couches were no exception. He peed all over the corner of the cushions and arm rest on this very 'poofy' soft couch, which was in a spot that I thought was going to be impossible to clean and get rid of the odor since by the time I caught it it was a day or two old and from the intense smell and thought this couch was a goner. After using a number of other products that worked to varying degrees but never quite good enough, I highly recommend this and it definitely works excellent, with no urine odor at all. Even worked great on an old spot on carpet that other multiple products failed to completely eliminate the odor!" —Teknogk

"This really works better than those other brands. It is a powerful cleaner and I use it on wood floors and my old dog doesn't go back to the same spot anymore. He now goes on his pads because of this product." —Luann Johnson

I mean...just look at this incredible before-and-after!

"We originally purchased this product because we have a fake-grass pee pad on our concrete patio for our dogs to use when we are not home, so we got Rocco & Roxie to clean and deodorize the pad and concrete. It worked like a charm. THEN, we just finished renovating my mother's (hoarder) house. She had previously had a dog who urinated on the carpet in one area so much that the carpet and pad had solidified to the wooden sub-floor. My husband had to use a chisel and hammer for hours to get it up. The smell was horrific and permeated throughout the house. The urine had crystallized to the wood floor and he was simply unable to get it all to release, so before we left for the night, we soaked three old rags in Rocco & Roxie and left them on the spot.

The next morning, wow! He was able to scrape up the remaining crystallized urine from the wood floor. Then, that next night, we soaked an old blanket again in the Rocco & Roxie, pressed it down onto the stained area and left it again overnight. The next morning, not only was the stain virtually gone, but there was NO urine smell. Rocco & Roxie has a pleasant smell to it, but it does not linger — just fresh. It was truly amazing. I have posted six pics — you must see them to fully appreciate the power of this product. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!!" —A Z

It's got multiple-cat households totally covered...

"I have four cats — all of whom were strays. We 'rescued' all four at different times and, so with all but the first cat, we went through a phase of bitterness and hatred where they urinated on everything in sight because they were so (if you'll excuse the pun) p*ssed off. One is still relatively new and so, right now, my bathroom smells like the shared bathroom at an all-boys dorm at a university for students who are aiming-impaired. My second cat (Guacamole) is very timid around people and he is particularly mad at me for some reason; so, Waka peed all over the sofa, all over my clothes, everything.

I sprayed this stuff on my sofa, but I read the reviews before I did and I thought to myself, 'They say to saturate...' so every time I walked past my sofa for the next two days, I sprayed the crap out of it with this stuff. I didn't go back and stick my nose in the couch for about a week (because really, who wants to shove their face in cat urine). Finally, when I was sure it had dried and all the little enzymes and invisible magic gnomes in this stuff had the opportunity to work, I went back and took a whiff. I lowered my elevation sufficiently from 3 feet above couch level to where I thought to myself, surely, no person will ever come any closer to the sofa than this (about a pillow away), and I could smell nothing. My husband has sat on the couch and neither of us smell anything. The cats have sat on the couch and, whether they smell anything or not, I'm uncertain (they don't talk... you know... they're cats), but they haven't started peeing on the sofa or made it obvious that there is a funky aroma there.

I'm buying more, and you should too. Yeah, it might cost less to buy that miracle stuff or some sort of carpet cleaner, or captain Joe's spray and go, but this stuff actually works. How much money are you going to waste trying to save money before you finally decide to put your wallet where your cat's urine is?" —Brian

...and it's even a favorite of cat-shelter employees!

"Cat café approved! I have been using this product for about a week and I love the smell! It's a great spicy aroma. Very unique for this type of product. I manage the Catfe Lounge in Ferndale, Michigan, for the Ferndale Cat Shelter. It's kitten season and the babies are just learning to use the litter box. Your product has come in handy! We also have a senior cat named Jessica that was recently diagnosed with kidney failure. Jessica also came from a home where the world was her litter box! I have been using your product to clean up her messes too. I'm sure we will ordering more as this is a constant need!" —DeMarie

Plus, apparently it works for human odor, too?

NBC / Via Giphy

"I've tried Nature's Miracle advanced formula and this Rocco & Roxie formula. Rocco & Roxie formula works every time. It kills, completely eliminates odor. Not only does it work for cat pee, but arm pit odor removal in shirts too! Rocco wins against the other brands, crushed the competition!" —Katherine Wright

The point is, just buy a bottle of this stuff and freshen up your damn house already so you can go back to living your best life with your furry BFF.

It's also safe to use around pets and children (AND it comes with a money-back guarantee if it doesn't work for you).
