Pet-Unfriendly Cleaning Products
Insecticides represent the biggest challenge for pet owners. You want something that can kill bugs and other pests, but not strong enough to have any influence on your own pets? Unfortunately, dogs and cats have a habit of sniffing where they shouldn't, so you can't trust normal bug killers. Instead, use natures own weapons and try a natural pesticide. Using only organic materials, you'll find your pets aren't at risk, but bugs will die just as easily. Ecosmart, for instance, produce a wide range of such products from plant oils. Their bed bug killer only costs around $8.00 and is perfect for cleaning the bed without having to keep your furry friend away from their favorite sleeping spot!Bleach, despite its uses, often leaves harmful fumes. Humans know better but innocent pets may inhale these chemicals, causing problems over time. Pets often have a fascination with our bathrooms, so you can't always assume your innocent companion doesn't investigate when you're not looking. It's important then, to find a safe, animal-friendly bleach for use on sinks, toilets and other heavy-duty cleaning tasks. Most shops now stock some natural alternative, often under a name such as 'toilet cleaner' to differentiate from traditional bleaches and hair products. Find one that's thick enough for your needs with only natural ingredients and you have a much safer way to clean the toilet!Pets, whether they are hungry or not, are often drawn to the kitchen and the wide, flat surfaces make ideal licking or sniffing targets. As such, you shouldn't use a typical cleaning spray, as you never know how these chemicals might interact with your pet. Instead, try the Disinfectant Multi-Cleaner from Seventh Generation for a multipurpose spray. At less than 5 bucks for a 26 oz spray, this product is well known as a pet-friendly solution. Similarly, if you're in a pinch, try using citric acid from a lemon. The natural acidity helps kill germs and, better yet, the sour taste might put dogs off licking in the first place.In a recent , we shared some information about cleaning your home in a way that is safe and non-toxic for your family and pets.
