Good Scruff Pet Cleaning & Odour Solutions - Review

We only recently discovered Good Scruff, an environmentally responsible company that loves pets and our planet. We usually take a look at all the new eco-friendly pet products once a year but we felt this range deserved a particular mention!

Designed from the ground up, the 
Good Scruff range of green cleaning solutions to everyday pet stain and odour problems are easy to use and also a healthier and safer choice for the whole family. 

We love that 
Good Scruff is an Australian company manufacturing in Melbourne. The entire range is eco-friendly with all ingredients carefully selected and sourced ethically (never tested on animals) from the best Australian suppliers. To make sure their products meet the highest standards, they are independently tested. 

The Good Scruff Range of Eco-Friendly Cleaning & Odour Solutions

Our first question was what makes the Good Scruff products "green"? 

Both our dogs and the cat decided to investigate - Porthos was looking for treats!

All harsh chemicals are left out so what you won't find here are any dyes, masking agents, synthetic perfumes, chlorine, bleach, sodium laurel sulphates or phosphates! 


Reading all the labels, the contents are very similar with a mix of plant-derived base ingredients (for cleaning) and natural scents from botanical extracts (for odour removal).

✔️ Base Ingredients: Australian filtered water (Aqua), Plant-derived surfactant, Plant-based biodegradable deodoriser, Citric acid. 

✔️ Natural Fragrance: Cinnamomum Camphora Leaf Oil, Grapefruit Oil, Geranium Oil, Bergamot Oil, Cedarwood Oil and Basil Oil


1) Stain & Odour Remover 

This product is designed to a
ttack the worst stains and completely eliminate odour at the source… for good! 

It will be great not just for pet owners as it not only tackles pee, solid waste, dirty paws on carpets, couches, car seats and other washable fabrics but also human messes (vomit, blood, grease and even wine)! 

The plant powered formula works fast to dissolve and remove stains and eliminating all odours will discourage repeat accidents. 


Whether you are toilet training a puppy, a newly adopted dog, or just dealing with your pet’s bad habits – this product will be a real life saver! It works well on carpets, rugs, upholstery, clothing and other washable fabrics or water-safe surfaces

Sadly our senior dog Conner occasionally forgets his house training (either he’s physically unable to hold despite being provided multiple opportunities daily or he gets confused and forgets to ask to go out in time). 

We picked up most of the solid waste with a paper towel and then sprayed the Stain & Odour Remover directly onto our soiled carpet and rug. There wasn't too much of a stain to start with as we caught him in the act but still blotted the carpet and rug to be sure. 

There's an immediate smell of freshness, instantly covering any previous bad smells and there was no discolouration of our hard-wearing carpet (always test on a small hidden area first!). We rinsed with water using a clean cloth and avoided hard scrubbing then just let our carpet and rug to air dry which takes a bit longer in winter!

It was a long-lasting result so there was no need to go over a second time but you may need to if you have a stubborn older stain. So far, our dog hasn't been used that spot again, he's now moved his efforts to the poop deck!

We’ve only a handful of accidents to date but knowing we can get on top of these incidents quickly with minimum fuss and no lingering smells is a huge relief.

2) Urine & Odour Destroyer

This is a super strength, non-toxic, eco-friendly solution for your everyday pet messes

This plant powered formula works fast to breaks downs urine stains and completely neutralises odours at the source to help prevent re-soiling.
If you have a puppy, a newly adopted pet settling in, an incontinent older dog or a cheeky pussycat like Arya, this would be a life saver!

I can't recall the last time one of our dogs peed in the house (maybe our latest rescue dog 5 years ago) but our Urine & Odour Destroyer is used when our junior cat Arya occasionally urinates outside her PetSafe ScoopFree self-cleaning litter box. It's usually our fault for not replacing her tray on time...

It is fairly rare (we normally protect our laminate flooring with both cardboard and a bathmat) but we all know that cat pee is particularly stinky - you can't miss that ammonia scent! - so you really need to get on top of it quickly by spraying straight away, rinsing using fresh water and letting the area dry off completely before allowing your pet back in.

We've only used it on laminate flooring and tiles but it works equally well on hard wood, vinyl, concrete and other hard surfaces which are unaffected by water.

RRP: $24.95 from goodscruff.com.au

3) Toy & Bowl Sanitiser

When it comes to cleaning our dog / cat bowls and some of their toys, we normally wash them along with our dishes and occasionally pop some in the dishwasher to kill germs (especially when feeding raw or wet food) so we must admit we did not really think about any toxic residue that could be left behind because it would affect us too...
Arya: "I'm offended Mum, I am not the dirty one in this house!"

The Good Scruff Toy & Bowl Sanitiser is of course a safer way to kill germs and will remove slime and grime from pet’s dishes and their favourite toys with a quick spray directly on the surface.

Simply wipe with a clean cloth and allow to air dry before use.
It will work to safely clean and sanitise not only plush toys but also rubber, neoprene, ceramic, stainless steel and other items that may come in contact with your dog’s or cat's mouth. 

All products are packaged in environmentally responsible packaging. The cleaner bottles are all 500ml and are 100% recyclable and refillable to help reduce your carbon footprint.

RRP: $24.95 at goodscruff.com.au

4) Patio Cleaner & Deodoriser

If you have a puppy or dog (or even a cat) that toilets on a balcony, deck or in a courtyard, I'm sure you're not a fan of those lingering stains and smells when you want to use your outdoor space with guests?


As with all Good Scruff products, the Patio Cleaner & Deodoriser will break down the stains and eliminate odours living your outdoor living areas smelling great so you can get back to enjoying the day! 
Porthos: "I hope you're not expecting me to do all the scrubbing?"

The Patio Cleaner & Deodoriser can be used on most outdoor surfaces, e.g. concrete, stone, artificial turf, hardwood, and other floor surfaces unaffected by water. 

It is very economical with each litre making up to ten litres of ready-to-use cleanerThoroughly apply your diluted mix (using a watering can or sprayer) onto the surface and you can scrub with a bristle brush to loosen particles if needed. For the best results, you could spray the stained areas first with the Urine & Odour Destroyer.

After 10 minutes, simply wash away with a water hose and use a squeegee (or sponge) to direct excess liquid to drain. Allow the area to dry naturally and completely before letting anyone back in the area. 

However if your pet does not have any other options for toileting, you will have to use this product regularly!

RRP: $34.95 at goodscruff.com.au

Our Experience with the Good Scruff Range 

Where were these products when we welcomed our puppy Conner home 
back in early 2007? We were clueless about puppy toilet training and the first few weeks we gave him an all-access pass to all areas of the house, whilst we went off to work for the whole day!

We are lucky now that all the dogs have full access to a grass backyard and we're usually around to let them in and out (and back in again!) so we haven’t had many accidents in the house after our two rescue dogs settled in 5-6 years ago.

But our senior dog now forgetting his house training and a contrary junior cat have shown us that life with pets can be very messy!


Thanks to Good Scruff, we feel we no longer have to compromise: we can have a clean(er!) house whilst not having to expose our pets (and ourselves) to harsh chemicals.
