Hey everyone!

We're trying to battle the smells from dogs and children!
Has anyone used bye bye odor or heard whether it is bird safe or not?
The ingredients list is small but very chemical sounding. It has little to no fragrance and is primarily used in a hospital setting..... particularly ostomy rooms.....
Also it's a spray, not an aerosol.

Active Ingredients: Quaternary Ammonium Chlorides, Dimethyl, Benzyl, Ammonium Chlorides

Thanks in advance!

Have not and personally would NOT use it.

Go for natural things. Search the threads here. I think vinegar has been mentioned before.

Orange peelings have aroma.

Cinnamon sticks.

I read a recipe for tree ornaments using apple sauce and cinnamon (that person said to buy in bulk at dollar store).

Those compounds work by disrupting the cell membranes of virus and bacteria (killing them) so I can see why it'd be used in a hospital setting.
It also contains SDA-40-B which is denatured alcohol. Its safety data sheet is pretty lacking so given its function, I would suggest using F10 instead.

F10 is a known product for use in environments with birds and they publish much more information about its proper use (link).

That said, improving indoor air quality is primarily a function of:
  • Reduction: don't bring smelly things into the house, clean smelly things, etc
  • Ventilation: exhaust stale indoor air outside (think kitchen and bath fans), and bring fresher outdoor air in (open windows, HRV/ERVs)
  • Filtration: reduce the number of particles in the air with HEPA filtration, or smells with charcoal filtration.
