Fresh Wave #sponsored

We were contacted by Fresh Wave asking us to review their products. We received several products free of charge to review, but all opinions expressed here are our own. Getting the products did not effect our opinions in any way.

Mom got an email asking us to review a natural ingredient based odor removing product from a company called fresh wave. What got our attention was a few things:
1. Natural ingredients - no fillers or funky smells to cover things up. The smell you get is from essential oils
2. Manufactured in the US (in Indiana)
3. You can buy them online, but you can also purchase them at Target
4. They give back to different charitable organizations

So, let's be honest....with 7 house cats and various foster kittens, things around here can sometimes be stinky not so fresh. The package we got had 3 products - the spray, a gel container and a package containing smaller packs. Mom pulled one smaller pack out to put in the bathroom and noticed a pleasant aroma....and after over a week, it is working great. The larger gel container is in our living room and should last 60-90 days.

"Fresh Wave® natural odor-removing products use simple, pure and natural ingredients — water and natural extracts of lime, pine needle, aniseed, clove and cedarwood — to get rid of organic and inorganic odors. As in gone. Adios. Good-bye. Rather than covering up odors with perfumes and chemicals, our products actually make the odor molecules disappear. So when we say that odor is outta here…we’re not kidding." 

A couple of very small negatives: 
We wish the oils used were listed on the packaging. They are on the website, but not the individual containers. Some people are sensitive to certain smells and deserve to know what they are getting. 
Also, when you first open a container or use the spray, the clove smell is a little much...but it fades pretty fast so mom didn't mind too much.

Overall - we give is several paws up. Mom likes it and plans to make it part of our regular household products. The smell is nice but not overwhelming and it is made in the US and it is easy to keep away from the cats...though it is pet friendly.

Here's the other cool thing - mom asked if we could give a package away to one of our readers and they agreed. The contest will be open for 1 week and the company will send a prize package direct to the winner. Because they are selling through Target, winners are in the US only. But....if you are outside the US, you can enter and send the package to your favorite US rescue. Giveaway runs through midnight January 13th.

  1. I think I need that product, or something similar. Now that I am in a smaller home, with the litter-boxes on the main (only) floor, the smells will probably be more noticeable to visitors.

  2. With 14 cats, we get a lot of stinky moments. This sounds like it would be perfect.

  3. This sounds interesting - my human sure could use it for her bathroom! (That's where two of our litter boxes are.)

  4. With the stinky boys I sure could use this product. I'll have to go and see if I can find it at Target next time I go. Thanks for the giveaway.

  5. We got to try Fresh Wave awhile back and we really liked it. The scent was not overpowering. The mom uses it in our litterbox room.

  6. That stuff sounds good. Especially when somekitty here decides not to bury her business! :)

  7. I echo the failure to bury comment. BTW, the link to facebook appears to be broken...

  8. I have kitties who have smelly poops. Think I need to change up the food but any additional help would be great!

  9. Okay, here is a stinky and embarrassing moment. Not too long ago I laid down and took a nap. When I woke up, there was cat poop on my bed not far from my face. Who did it? I have 2 suspects, but I can't definitely say. None the less, it took some washing to get everything clean and poop-smell free.

  10. That sounds great. Our house on wheels picks up every smell and makes it last way to long. This looks like a great product.


We love to hear from you.....
