Is USR the same as the organic stain removers?

I always go through and post- spot any spots that I couldn't remove, usually with some stain 1, stain magic, just like magic, or stain zone. But I also keep a gallon of USR on me, and wondering if it does the exact same thing, should I just use that instead? Or do those other stain removers actually have something else in them that makes them more effective on weird, non urine stains?

The USR is a oxidizer but Not as strong as Stain magic. It is something that can be used as a substitute but its just not as strong

1st Strongest
Stain magic (mixed)
2nd
Stain 1 or Oxi booster
3rd
USR (most economical <- can be used as a booster in a prespray but Id rather use the Oxi boost
4th Oxygen release

Dwell is effected
the stronger the faster the reaction

To boost it
place a UV lamp from CTI/Pros choice. Not expensive and very well designed.
just be careful when using UV light it can behave like a catalyst and you could potentially pull color, you need to keep an eye on it. to keep it reacting longer place a sheet of clear plastic like a tab or saran wrap, it slows evaporation.

I apply USR prior to cleaning, even before I set up. That gives it time to work. Then water claw and clean. If there is any stain left, then Stain 1 and cover with wax paper.
