Any Tips/Products for Removing Urine Odour from Synthetic Grass

My dog has been peeing on the synthetic grass in my backyard. I have no problem about it except it stinks when the weather gets hot. Any affordable and pet safe product you guys recommend me to fix this? where can I buy this product? I have checked bunnings and they have a small bottle for this selling at $25+!! I just cant justify myself using this when I need large amount to spray the whole area. Thanks!
This is a rental property FYI.

    Rinse the area with water as soon as the dog urinates.

      thats what I thought would kinda work and hose it down regularly. I would do that immediately when I see it but I can't possibly keep track on all the pees. thats why I started googling but with not a lot os luck :/

    That's why I stopped using synthetic grass. I thought it was a great idea at first but then realised it was such a pain to clean it, I went back to just using indoor dog pads instead. I used to use it with a tray but then I got bored of doing the tray and just stick it to the ground in one spot instead.

    They have it at Pet stores and Woolworths, but I don't think it's going to help too much as the piss has seeped into the sand beneath the synthetic grass.

    Try BioZet laundry detergent, or any detergent that has "enzymes".

      Iwould think anything with the right enzyme should work. I don't really know if it's a good idea to put the detergent on the grass and make it like a bubble bath lol

        We've used BioZet on our small area of synthetic lawn at the back our our place for years. Works fine and no issues for us…gets rid of the odour well.

        We use it. Its fairly diluted, so not so bubbly. Works for us.

    Is the dog female?

    Need better drainage/synthetic grass.

      my landlord said he really did well when he laid it, well drainage etc.. but unfortunately I can't change anything as I am renting and I have to consider the scent for my housemate

    When the neighbours dog used to piss on the front concrete it stank bad when the weather got hot. I got rid of the smell by pouring white vinegar over it.

      Urine contains amines, which are basic compounds. If you tip an acid on it (like white vinegar) it forms the conjugate acid (ie a salt), which is relatively odourless and more water soluble.

      The enzymes in laundry detergent are designed to remove protein, starch, fat and grease - none of which are the main odour causing components of urine. It might help by virtue of it's pH, but most are basic (>7) and will not lead to salt formation of the amines. They will in fact promote formation the "free base" form of odor causing molecule.

  •  

    You need an enzyme based cleaner. Recommendations from other pet owners has been to sprinkle powdered laundry detergent once a week and hose in.

    Have you tried vinegar?

  •  

    Bicarbonate of soda, leave overnight, vacuum.

    I use UrineFree + Backyard Fresh mixed. Buy a big 5L container and lasts a few months. Only need to use once every few weeks.

    Walk your dog more often?

  •  

    Remove the lemon tree….

  •  

    Mix a big batch of bicarb, vinegar and water and pour over the area with a watering can and leave to soak in also get in a habit of soaking with water but the bicarb and vinegar will kill any smells better than any product sold to do so.

  •  

    I would have thought a good rinsing

    Oh but so funny!

    Cant blame the dog.

    How sad for the dog. I suppose you walk the dog using your stepping machine.
    Why have you such an animal if you do not have the facilities.
    How sad… and you should look at yourself.

    vinegar, you can buy 5L for $2 at costco.

    Might not do soil underneath any good long term though

    I know salt works on carpet smells,
    I don't know if it will work outside,
    that is why I would use white vinegar outside

    If you're worried the land now smells like it has been marked as your dog's territory, there's only one fix that he will understand. Roll your sleeves up, unzip your trousers and get to work mate.
