No, no, no! Not Lime. But why shouldn’t I use Lime?
The short and skinny to that question is simply……..lime products don’t measure up (at all) to Sweet PDZ when it comes to ammonia and odor neutralization. Here’s why…..
Barn lime is calcium carbonate and calcium carbonate does not possess the unique mineral functions that our Sweet PDZ mineral (clinoptilolite) possesses to neutralize ammonia. Barn Lime may cover up the ammonia odor if you pour enough of it on the wet spot, but all it is doing is hiding the odor. The ammonia odor is still present, and not chemically changed, as it is with the Sweet PDZ.
Hydrated lime is very toxic and hazardous to handle or breathe, and it should not be exposed to any pet or animal. It is very caustic, and can burn the skin and hooves while presenting significant irritations to your throat, eyes and nasal passages. And the fact is it too only covers up an odor as it possesses no neutralization benefit at all. In the end, using this can end up increasing ammonia.
Sweet PDZ is not barn lime or hydrated lime; it is a natural clinoptilolite zeolite mineral that is pH neutral and perfectly safe for people, pets and the planet. Its ammonia capturing ability has been consumer tested and applauded for over thirty-five years. Its longstanding reputation rises above lime products as well as all other stall deodorizers.
