8 Reasons I’m Hooked on Nok-Out

Nok-Out and I met quite by accident. In searching for ways my readers could deal with offensive odors, we found each other online. I’ve used it continuously in my home since then and have recommended it to readers facing serious and potentially expensive odor issues. Not everything in life can be doused in bleach. But Nok-Out? No problem!

So today I thought I would sum it all up by giving you my top eight reasons that I am hooked on Nok-Out. It’s a smelly world out there and I don’t want to live in it without Nok-Out.

1. Not toxic

Nok-Out is not toxic, and totally safe around pets, children, and anyone with allergies. Amazingly, the stuff looks like water and has no scent or fumes.

2. Fragrance-free

Nok-Out has no added fragrance and is non-toxic. In its anti-bacterial and anti-viral strength, labeled Sniper Hospital Disinfectant, it kills H1N1 as well as a long list of other nasty germs.

3. No coverups

Nok-Out cleans the air, leaving the fresh clean smell of … nothing! I don’t like to get hit in the face with the smell of fake mango or sugar cookie dough that attempts to cover up bad odors.

4. Musty antique odors

Nok-Out has rescued antique furniture for me as well as an antique Singer Featherweight Sewing machine, all of which had terminal cases of mildew. The cost of Nok-Out was nothing compared to the valuable items it rescued for me.

5. Cat urine stink

You know that smell of cat urine that can permeate even concrete? That is no match for Nok-Out. My friends in Houston were ready to sell their home because they could not get rid of that horrible odor that had gone through the carpet, into the pad, and right through the wood flooring—and the concrete below that! Yep, Nok-Out took care of it and I mean permanently. Happy friends!

6. Moldy, mildew odors

Mold and mildew? That’s a problem in so many areas, and not only the visual effect but that wretched smell! Should I say it again? Ok … Nok-Out!

7. Eliminates those odors

Every nursing home and convalescent hospital everywhere needs a steady supply of Nok-Out coming through the door. I won’t go into detail, but just believe me when I say there’s not a smell a nursing home facility can produce that’s too much for Nok-Out. Fresh, clean, and sanitized makes people happy.

8. Made in the USA!

Nok-Out is made in America. That means a lot to me. But even better, the folks at are the nicest people on earth and will do anything to help anyone eradicate any odor, anywhere. Yep, that’s just how nice they are.

You could buy a lot of chlorine bleach for the price of a gallon of Nok-Out. But bleach is toxic, you can’t wash your hands in it or spray yourself down to remove the human smell when you go hunting, just in case you were planning to do that. And you sure wouldn’t spray down your baby’s nursery with bleach, or the drapes, carpet, or that musty smelly chest of drawers. But Nok-Out? Bring it on!

    I use Nok-Out and Sniper all over my house. Cat litter box, dog kennels and blankets, bathrooms, vehicles, just all yucky smells! Doesn’t smell like a perfume coverup either. Yes, the shipping is a little much, but you can double it with water. It’s a great product! I promise.

    Hi Mary – love your column – is Nokout only available online? Are there any stores that sell this produt in the US. Does it work on carpeting with dog urine odors?

    Cat urine? That’s nothing! Will it get tons of dead shrimp smell from fisherman’s clothes? Not even boiling water, with bleach will get that horrid smell out..

    but will it get that shrimp smell out of my fisherman’s clothes…not even belach and boiling hot water can do that

    Unfortunately, it really didn’t take out the urine smell. I had to buy a gallon and use the whole thing repeatedly for the one spot. I had to pour it on, let it sit, then scrap it out. By the end of the gallon, the smell was less noticeable, but if I sealed the room up, when I opened in the door it was very noticeable. It was extremely expensive and far, far, far less effective than I expected given what Mary says about it. Very disappointing. Straight lemon juice worked much, much better and about 95% less expensive.
