Cat Odor Removal Products
CHEMICAL REACTION … leaving me perplexed!?
I added vinegar to carpet shampoo in the hope of eliminating the odor cat urine (the product touts being an animal odor removal). Instead shampoo normally clear listening milky then separated, resulting in a putty-like substance. I am grateful I did not run the machine as it would have been mess up a mouthful. So what gives? I vinegar mixed with other products from soap and not had this result. Is it because there is a special additive in shampoo carpet? I think that he has something to do with the protein. But then again, maybe not.
It is really hard to know without looking at the ingredients. But as putty substances tend to be caused by gelation. In gels of the individual atoms as a barrier link in the chain. Sometimes the metal centers link, sometimes there are free electrons and double bonds that respond to H + vinegar causing crosslinking. Often certain substances cross link if the pH is too high or too low
