Pet Smells: How do you keep it in check?

I have a cat, a dog, and a very sensitive nose. As a matter of fact, one might even go so far as to say I have slight OCD when it comes to pet smell. I feel like it's a constant war with the nose in my apartment.

Any recommendations/tips for keeping the smells in check? What cleaning products do you use and how often do you use them?

Baking soda in the litter box after every or every other cleaning

Animals smell.
Humans smell too, you're just more accustomed to it.

You can try air purifiers and fresheners but introducing another living, breathing creature to your home will change its odor.

If you're not asking about pet waste smells then you're a bit out of luck.

We also tried several different kinds of cat litter to find the one that works the best and fits our needs. Shop around for different litters if you haven't already.

the only smells ive noticed associated with cats are waste smells. Cats pretty much have no smell to their fur/breath/self.

Dogs on the other hand reek.

I hate with dogs how after you pet them even a few times your hand smells like them.

Weird, yeah. Perhaps something to ask your vet about.

A brief google suggests it may be a dominance thing, or it might just be that he thinks he doesnt have enough litter to cover it.

i've seen that. Its like they get confused, usually afterwards, theyll hop out of the box, and scratch somewhere else, even if theres nothing there like theyre burying something imaginary.
