Review: Halo Pet Products

The lovely people from Halo recently go in touch to see if I would like to try out any of their cleaning products from their website www.halononbio.co.uk. I had a little nosey and the products that really stood out for me the most was their pet range, so Halo sent me a couple of items to review for them.

Here's a bit of background info on Halo first: "With their first appearance on “Dragon’s Den” in 2009, halo Non Bio burst into the public eye with their revolutionary superbug-beating products whilst doing the unthinkable and rejecting the Dragon’s offer of £100,000 investment to go it alone. Paul started his career as a medic in the Royal Army Medical Corps after leaving school. It was in this capacity that he began to gain a real appreciation of the importance of hygiene and infection control which was always a priority for him and the Medical Corps as a whole. On leaving the services, Paul then decided to study Chemistry in the evenings to expand his knowledge and develop his idea of bringing to market a product that was mild yet highly effective against all germs, including Superbugs. After 6 years of study and researching ways of achieving his ambition, Paul finally had developed his product and began exhaustive testing. In 2004 the revolutionary product range was launched to rave reviews."

With two dogs in the house it's double the trouble and double the mess so first up for review is the Odour Eliminating Pet Grooming Wipes. These are perfect for time strapped pet owners or owners who's animals are afraid of the bath/water. You get a tub of 80 wipes (13cm x 23cm) which are suitable for; dogs, cats, horses and small animals (rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters etc). The active ingredient in these wipes, Hygienilac, is a veterinary anti-bacterial and anti-fungal solution which is proven to reduce odours. The tub that houses the wipes is a good size and fits comfortably in the palm of your hand, easy to grip and hold even for my small hands. It has a flip open top lid which closes again securely to stop wipes drying out. On first use you open the tub and feed the wipes through the hole at the top, took me a couple of attempts but I got there in the end. Only trouble is the wipes get stuck and rip after the first 2 have passed through which is a pain, then they break off and you have to feed it back through the hole again. This was quite inconvenient and frustrating and I ended up just taking the lid off altogether to save time and hassle.

As for the wipes themselves they're a good size and texture, not too wet but just enough to easily clean your animal. I used about 3 wipes on Lexie to go over her back, legs, feet and underside which I thought wasn't too bad. She's a Staffordshire Bull Terrier by the way for reference. The wipes smell amazing, such a fresh light scent. I'm not exactly sure what it smells of but it reminds me of a clean spearmint smell. It's really nice and not strong at all, if there's a strong smell my dogs will sneeze but there was no sneezing to be heard. Overall these wipes really did the trick, the girls were wiped and smelling fresh within minutes and it was just like getting petted for them so they loved it. Their coats felt cleaner afterwards and they didn't take any reactions to them so I was really happy.

The next product up for review is the Fabric Odour Eliminator spray. It's a massive 750ml bottle of smell busting solution and I'm happy to say it actually works, yippee! I sprayed it on the dogs beds and what a difference, so much fresher and no lingering smells. This spray smells very similar to the wipes, nice soft clean scent. It's an easy to use spray, just turn the on off nozzle at the top and spray away. It's best to shake the bottle before use to activate the ingredients though. There's quite a few benefits to using this product bar the fact it kills odours, urine, food, saliva, pet and poop smells, it also kills salmonella, listeria and e.coli. Good stuff and perfect when you have young children in the house.

Overall two very good products and both which I would recommend to family and friends with pets. The wipes make life easier for keeping the dogs clean and fresh and saves so much hassle when it comes to giving them a good clean. The spray is perfect. It makes the dogs bedding smell fresh and keeps it odour free until it's ready for a proper wash. The wipes retail for £3.24 and the spray retails for £4.20, both can be purchased on the Halo website and you can even use Paypal which I always find is very handy. My only issue is with the wipes tub and how the wipes don't come out properly through the hole and how they rip and then stop coming out altogether. That was a pain and a bit annoying but the wipes themselves are great.

Mummies rating - 7/10
