"Friendly enzymes" help keep your CTA ride blood and urine free!

I can’t believe I just wrote that headline.

But the product the PR flack was pitching me was just too strange that I couldn’t resist sharing with you the fact that people get paid to reach out to bloggers like me to write about their product.


This is an enzyme

And it worked! Except I’m not telling you what the product is. But, oh, let me tell you what it can do!  😉

Because, you know . . .

“Dealing with a smelly train or bus is no fun. It is
important to keep a public train clean and odor-free, but cleaning up
traces of
bodily fluids on seats, the floor, and other surfaces can be a very
task.  Many times stains like blood and urine cannot be removed by
means, using common household cleaning agents.

“. . . The
uniquely uses “friendly” enzymes and microorganisms (customized
bacteria) to eat away the uric acid crystals and remove components of
fluid. Rather than temporarily masking the problem, it removes all
traces of it
including odor.”

I’m just happy we can have such friendly enzymes working for us on this vexing problem.

  • Let's keep them puke free too, please. A lady totally booted on the bus on Sunday and didn't bother telling the driver. It wasn't until someone slipped on it that he was informed; we all had to get off and wait for the next bus.


  • Given that both you and the RedEye transit writer both have urine stories, I guess this product is needed.

    Too bad you don't give a name so I can see if a biotech mutual fund I own has an investment in it. There isn't going to be any lack of demand for its product.

    Conversely, it was reported elsewhere that some transit authorities are using Daimler's BlueTec technology or equivalent to clean up diesel emissions. Since that requires the injection of urea, maybe we can harness all that pee.

  • Jack - the product is called Urine Off.

  • In reply to KevinO’Neil:

    Since you mentioned it, their website is quite informative, including that the smelly part is uric acid, one of three parts of urine.

    They have a transportation link that mentions "it

  • In reply to KevinO’Neil:

    If you say Urine Off quickly out loud, it sounds like the name of a Tolstoy character.

    Didn't he drive a taxi in the northern suburbs? Along with his cousin Pizof? :-)
