We are fully aware that some of the cleaning products we use are toxic, but our dogs don’t know that. For that reason, you have to be more careful when choosing which cleaning items to use.
In an last week’s article, we already highlighted some of the cleaning products that can pose a serious threat to dog health. This time around, we’ll shine the spotlight on pet-friendly cleaning items.
With National Cleaning Week March 22-28, make sure to stock up on the following items the next time you’re at the supermarket.
Specially Formulated Pet-Friendly Cleaners
Considering how many people are pet owners, it should probably come as no surprise that companies have formulated cleaners that can still be used around animals. These non-toxic cleaning items often use naturally-derived ingredients to get rid of stubborn stains in and around your home.
According to PetMD, you can now find enzyme and plant-based cleaners that make use of biodegradable ingredients. Head over to your nearest pet store or go online to get your hands on those specially formulated cleaning items.
Technically, baking soda can be a problem for your pet dog, but that’s only true if he/she consumes excessive amounts of it. As long as you make sure to store the baking soda somewhere your dog can’t get to, things should be fine.
Baking soda mixed with water is great for polishing steel. That mixture can be used to clean kitchen countertops and even your pet’s food and water bowls.
Another item that you can safely use as a cleaning aid inside a dog-occupied household is vinegar. The acidic nature of vinegar comes in very handy when trying to get rid of stains on glass and metal surfaces. It can even work as an effective deodorizer for pet urine.
You don’t want your dog drinking bowls of vinegar, but it’s still safe to use a household cleaner.
Cleaning up your home does not have to be an activity that poses danger to your dog. Ensure that your home remains a safe haven for your four-legged friend by relying on the cleaning items mentioned in this article.
