Stall Dry Absorbent and Deodorizer provides a safe and effective way to control moisture and ammonia to maintain a dry and healthy habitat for your animals. This granular formula consists of a natural mixture of Diatomaceous Earth and Calcium Montmorillonite, which absorbs and neutralizes pH levels, helping to eliminate unpleasant odors. It deodorizes and extends the life of bedding, creating a cleaner and safer environment. It features a minty-wood scent, leaving the cage, stall, barn, kennel, or trailer smelling good. It is non-toxic and non-caustic, so is safe to use on wood, metal, concrete, and rubber surfaces. It is also OMRI Certified, making it safe for organic production. With regular use, it may help reduce labor and bedding costs by up to 50%. Ideal for all types of small and large animals.
An all natural blend of Diatomaceous Earth and Calcium Montmorillonite.
Possesses a CEC ranging between 40 to 47.
Able to attract and bind positively charged ions.
Can absorb 125% of its own weight in liquid.
Has an average pH of 6.
What’s Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC)?
Material’s ability to attract and bind positively charged ions known as cations.
This ability to attract and bind ions is known as Adsorption.
The higher the CEC, the more cations a material can hold.
The pH of a substance is a measure of how acidic or basic (alkaline) it is. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14 with a pH of 7 being neutral. With a pH of 6 our Stall DRY® is able to neutralize ammonia when applied topically.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
HOW DOES STALL DRY ABSORBENT & DEODORIZER WORK?
It absorbs moisture and urine, controls odors and helps to reduce the harmful effects of ammonia. As a result of controlling odors and ammonia, you will notice a reduction of flies in stalls and pens. Made from a natural diatomaceous earth deposit enhanced with montmorillonite clay (also known as calcium bentonite), this product can absorb more than its own weight in liquid. It also has a low pH, allowing it to attract and neutralize ammonia molecules. When sprinkled over bedding, it will absorb moisture from the bedding, keeping it dryer so the bedding can be used longer.
HOW DO I APPLY STALL DRY ABSORBENT AND DEODORIZER?
Sprinkle a light coat over the stall floor (wood, concrete, dirt etc). Spread additional Stall DRY on wet spots until the surface is dry. Leave this in place. Finally, place the bedding in the stall.
Daily, as you are cleaning the stall, take out the solids and sprinkle about 16 oz on the wet spots. Allow a short time to dry and put the bedding back in the stall. As a result, the bedding will usually last an extra day or so.
Sprinkle on manure piles regularly to reduce flies.
IS IT SAFE TO USE WITH ALL ANIMALS?
Yes, it is completely safe to be used with all types of animals. Please note, this does not include reptiles or amphibians.
CAN IT BE COMPOSTED?
Yes, it is safe to be composted and also used in the garden. In fact, as a natural product containing food grade diatomaceous earth, individuals have found that Stall DRY provides many benefits when used in compost and in the garden. Please note: Stall DRY Plus should not be used in the compost or garden.
Stall DRY is used to control wetness, odor and ammonia in stalls, cages and other animal dwellings. It is an all natural product and is safe to use with nearly all animals. When used with bedding and waste that is composted, Stall DRY is safe to be composted and used in the garden. When contained in compost and added to the garden, Stall DRY can also help to aerate the soil and will act as a natural insecticide.
Mixed with water, Stall DRY has a pH of approximately 6 while pure water has a pH of 7 or 8. Therefore adding Stall DRY to your compost and garden will not affect the pH of the soil too drastically and will not harm your plants (unless they are highly sensitive to changes in pH).
Please note: any end-product meant for human consumption that has come in contact with Stall DRY should be washed well before being consumed. This is due to the fact that government regulations state that no food grade diatomaceous earth should be present in any end-product that is meant for human consumption.
CAN STALL DRY ABSORBENT AND DEODORIZER BE USED IN ORGANIC OPERATIONS?
Yes, it can be used in organic production. It is listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for use in organic production.
Diatomaceous earth is recognized as a non-chemical fly control material. Stall DRY also binds nitrogen and phosphorus which helps to control odors and reduces runoff which may have a detrimental affect on groundwater.
