Science Of DooDoo Voodoo
If you're like most people, you've tried everything under the sun on your stains and odors, but
you've been unhappy with the results. Have no fear. DooDoo Voodoo will
make you happy again.
Customers tell us that we've hit on the magic
formula that so many of us pet owners have been longing for for so many years.
If you're the type who likes to know
the "why" as much as the "what," you've come to the right page.
In the next few short paragraphs, you'll learn --- in
easy-to-understand language --- just why and how DooDoo Voodoo does
I'll try to keep this as easy to
understand as possible, but here's the scientific methodology that
DooDoo Voodoo uses. If you can hang in there for the next
couple minutes, you'll be even more brilliant than you already are.
It's Good To
DooDoo Voodoo works in a different way from the popular enzyme &
bacteria odor removers that many people mistakenly think are the
best way to alleviate pet stains and odors.
We've personally used many
dozens of different enzyme and bacteria products, plus disinfectants
and more, but didn't achieve results anywhere near what we do with
DooDoo Voodoo. In fact, despite being touted as "non-toxic"
and all that, some of them really bothered us to be around, likely
because of the overpowering fragrance their manufacturers added.
This is not a problem with DooDoo Voodoo, which contains no added
We feel that enzyme and bacteria
products are too finicky about the pH of the environment into which
they're introduced. It's been said by scientists that enzymes/bacteria don't like being put on spots where
common cleaning products and DIY solutions have been used, as these can alter
the pH of the environment and negate the bacterial enzymes' ability
to do the job you want them to.
DooDoo Voodoo is different.
From a chemical standpoint, it doesn't "see" what you've treated an
area with before. It doesn't care about the area's pH.
It doesn't need to be kept moist with wet towels. It doesn't
need blotting. You don't have to inject it with a hypodermic
needle. In fact, nothing could be simpler. Just pour (or
spray) it...leave it...LOVE IT!®
DooDoo Voodoo contains no dyes and no
perfumes. It does NOT contain enzymes.
DooDoo Voodoo Does What It Does
We do not have overall EPA registration for
DooDoo Voodoo, as it costs huge amounts of money and
takes years of legal work to attain such certification, so we cannot make a claim that our finished
product is a disinfectant. We are allowed to say that it is a cleaner.
What we CAN say is that our
proprietary chemistry harnesses the power of one of nature's most
powerful germ killers and couples it with select natural and man-made domestic
and imported ingredients for incredible overall cleaning effectiveness. The
ingredients in DooDoo Voodoo come from Mother Nature. The
natural germ killer catalyzes an oxidizing action that breaks the
chemical bonds in stains and thus also may inhibit the offending
organic materials' bacterial growth that would otherwise lead to
Voodoo contains at least one natural, EPA-registered disinfectant, water, man-made & natural
cleaning agents, natural plant-based solvents and one or more essential
oils traditionally known for their odor-reducing, antibacterial,
antibiotic and antifungal properties. It does not contain tea tree
oil, commonly thought to be toxic to cats at too-high
The exact ingredients and
formula are ours and ours alone, and are a trade secret.
DooDoo Voodoo's ingredients work
together synergistically to reduce the surface tension between
DooDoo Voodoo and the surface or material being treated.
What's that mean? That DooDoo Voodoo gets more receptive so
that DooDoo Voodoo can attack the stains and odors. We wake up the organic contaminants and get
them ready to be dealt with by our proprietary chemistry. Our hydrophobic
(water-hating) natural solvents & cleaning agents are attracted to
the soiling, so they are driven to penetrate deep and break down the organic
After that, DooDoo Voodoo's other
constituents work synergistically to break the bond between the organic contaminants and the surface
(carpet fibers, upholstery, cellular foam, concrete, tile, grout,
thus making it easier for our ingredients to come in contact with
a greater amount of surface area of the contaminants. These
biodegradable, hydrophilic (water-loving) surfactants pull soiling
away from the surfaces, then dissolve and suspend the soiling and
contaminants in our solution.
Lastly, the power of nature catalyzes
a process via which the organic contaminants get obliterated and the
stains get de-colorized.
The byproducts of this reaction are oxygen and water.

Let's Talk About
Why Urine & Other Organic Contaminants Stink
Pet urine degrades in stages.
During the first stage, ammonia is formed. This is bad enough,
but the second stage is even worse. That's when the mercaptan
Cat urine is composed of:
• Uric Acid
• Other electrolytes
• Bacteria – typically 5 different strains
When cat urine dries, the urea is broken down by the bacteria.
This is what makes urine smell like ammonia. As it decomposes
further, it releases thiols that make the odor worse. This is
key, as you'll soon learn. Meet your arch enemy, mercaptan.
Here's some info I pulled from
The Independent, a British site:
Says It All
The first sentence of the last paragraph of the green text is the
one I especially want you to notice. "...it can be detected by
most people in extremely small quantities,
LESS THAN ONE PART PER MILLION (my emphasis)." Wow!
No wonder animals often return to the same spot to resoil! If
humans can detect one part per million, imagine how previous soiling
smells to your animals! Veterinarians estimate that animals'
sense of smell is MANY times stronger than humans'. In fact,
I've read or been told by vets "100 times stronger," "100,000 times
stronger" and more. Given that pets are territorial by nature,
and given that we all know that many animals seem to have an innate
need to re-mark their territory --- even when THEY were the ones to
mark the territory previously --- it becomes obvious why eradicating
pet odors is so important. If we don't, animals will re-mark
the areas...and there is a very real risk that their behavior may
become habitual, which is, as psychologists know, even tougher to
Here Comes The
Have no fear, though.
One of the main benefits of DooDoo Voodoo is that it's been shown
time and time and time again to be so successful at eradicating pet
odors that animals tend to not return to the same areas to resoil.
As you can read on our
TESTIMONIALS page, people report this to us
a-l-l the time. In fact, many people have reported that their
animals now lie in the exact same spot where they used to repeatedly
Is Unhealthy For Pets AND Humans
If you poke around online, you can find all sorts of information
about the negative health effects of being around decaying pet
soiling. If the soiling is pervasive and your exposure is
significant, you can suffer some really serious health consequences,
as can your pets. Luckily, DooDoo Voodoo makes it easy to
clean up pet messes so your environment can be much healthier.
Never Even Happened
Voodoo's unique combination of natural and manmade ingredients reduces or eliminates the organic materials that are
the source of odors and stains, and negates the mercaptan that's
responsible for the offensive odor. Once it's finished doing its job,
it converts naturally to oxygen and water, plus a temporary hint of its
fresh citrus scent. This is why we feel that it's the
most effective --- and smartest --- way to treat organic stains & odors.
In high concentrations, mercaptan is
toxic and affects the central nervous system, so it's important to
deal with your pet odors --- for the sake of both the humans and the
pets in your space. In fact, maybe this is where the phrase
"crazy cat lady" came from.
The bottom line is that we strongly believe --- primarily from our
decades of firsthand experience battling pet odors --- that NOTHING
comes close to DooDoo Voodoo's effectiveness or affordability.
And remember: your purchase helps support our charitable
foundation's animal welfare work, so purchasing DooDoo Voodoo is a
win-win for you and the animals.
