By August 31, 2021 September 6th, 2021 Dogs, New Pet Owners, new-pet-owners

Pets are part of our families. But they can also make our homes less clean, from shed fur and dirt tracked in from outside to potty accidents. And while you may want to keep your home clean, there are some cleaners out there that can be dangerous for our furry family members. It’s therefore important to look for cleaning products that can both properly clean your home and that are safe for your pets.

All-Purpose Cleaners

An all-purpose cleaner can be a huge help in cleaning up messes. They can work on practically anything and often have a dual purpose of cleaning stains. Many also take care of odors. All-natural cleaners that are plant-based instead of using chemical formulas are safer for use with pets and children, such as Skout’s Honor and Pet Stain & Odor Miracle. Vinegar can also be a good all-purpose cleaner.

Carpet Cleaners

Pets can have accidents that stain your carpet. Vacuuming can remove pet hair, but to get pet-related stains out of the carpet, you’ll need a carpet cleaner. Fortunately, there are some all-natural carpet cleaners that aren’t toxic to pets. Clean & Green’s carpet cleaner is a professional-strength eco-friendly carpet cleaner that is designed specifically to deal with both pet-related stains and pet odors. It’s non-toxic for both pets and children. Another option is the Puracy Professional Carpet Cleaner, a citrus-scented cleaner meant to remove both pet stains and odors from your carpet.

Floor Cleaners

Your pets spend a lot of time on the floor. It’s therefore vital to ensure that your floor cleaners are pet-safe. Typically, chemical cleaners can be toxic to your pets. All-natural cleaners, such as the Eco-Me Concentrated Multi-Surface and Floor Cleaner and the Bean & Lily Floor Cleaner are made from all-natural ingredients. The Bean & Lily cleaner is marketed as a pet-safe floor cleaner. Both are made entirely from plants and don’t contain bleach or other chemicals that can harm pets.

Odor Eliminators

As much as we love our pets, they can produce odors. It’s good to have an odor eliminator on hand to keep your home smelling fresh and clean. When you choose an odor eliminator, you should select one specially designed to eliminate pet odors, such as the Angry Orange Odor Eliminator. Baking soda is also a good option because it naturally absorbs odors and can help to remove stains.
