Holiday season is coming, and with it, the need for a clean house.
If you've been spending more time at home this past year, you might be looking around and thinking, "This place could really use a spruce up." Or maybe you're already compiling a mental checklist of areas to deep clean or improvements to make before the holidays and the usual house guests arrive.
But, as any responsible pet owner knows, you have to do your research on new products to use at home to ensure your furry friends stay safe. One of the worst results of, say, giving a room a fresh coat of paint is for your dog or cat to get sick. You can rest assured with these pet-safe solutions and easy decor updates.
Pet Safe Cleaning Products
The Pink Stuff
Touted as a pet-safe 'miracle' cleanser, The Pink Stuff's marketing is on point (and it made the rounds on TikTok last year). But does it live up to the hype? It boasts 4.3 out of 5 stars based on hundreds of Amazon reviews, so we can't be the only fans. Use the paste to clean your stained stove, countertops, tiles and other hard surfaces without sacrificing your peace of mind.
EcoSmart Home Pest Control
It's one thing to want to share your space with pets, but sharing it with pests is a different matter! Because this plant-based formula uses only essential oils such as rosemary, clove and thyme, it kills ants, roaches, crickets, ticks and other creepy crawlies, yet won't harm your fur children. Bonus: It doesn't contaminate groundwater supplies either.
Rug Doctor Pure Power Pet Stain & Odor Spot Cleaner
Ah, the joys of pet parenting... like having to clean your carpets and upholstery of pet urine, feces, drool, vomit, blood, and other delightful biological stains. The good news? This non-toxic, pro-enzymatic solution can get out Spot's spots and odors without damaging carpet fibers.
Nature Fresh Bamboo Charcoal Air Purifying Bags
Another low-maintenance way to lessen pet and people odors is to hang these handy air fresheners in closets and other enclosed spaces. Sold in a pack of 10 bags and hooks, they use activated bamboo charcoal to absorb toxins, chemicals and other particles in the air.
Better Life Natural All-Purpose Cleaner
Kudos to you if you're already mixing up natural solutions like white vinegar, baking soda or lemon to clean your home surfaces. For the rest of us, this cruelty-free, fresh-smelling spray (mmm, sage and citrus) will do the trick. They had us at all-purpose.
