Smell of dog pee

    Our shed is attached on to our house. Dog sleeps in there at night. Piddles on concrete floor as soon as he goes in despite having been brought for walk before bed. Doesn't bother me that much because there is nothing in there and it essentially is his shed, but it is starting to get a bit whiffy.
    Now I'm sure if I can get it then others definitely can. Kind of hits you as you walk in the back door. Twice a week i give it a good spray of disinfectant but looking for any ideas on what I could use to help with the smell.
    Preferably something i could spray. I'm pregnant so scrubbing concrete floor is not ideal.

    Disinfectant will not kill the protein in the pee; what you want is either to simply mix some biological washpowder with water and spray it or go for a premade mix such as Bust-It and simply spray it on and let it dry in.

    Yeah I was using the bio washing powder. Just a squeeze of the gel into spray bottle and top with water?
    Good to know about the protein in the pee. Didn't realise that and and it makes sense when you think about it.

    I use oxygen whitener. In the washing part of the shop you can buy gel, in the zooshop - spray, in the car-shop - foam. Foam (IMHO) is most convenient.
