Maintaining a sanitized, stain-free, and odour-free home requires a full quiver of cleaning detergents, from acid-based sink scrubs and disinfectant sprays to floor polishes and carpet shampoos. Unfortunately, many of the most popular products in the market contain chemicals that are dangerous for animals to inhale, accidentally ingest, or even absorb through the skin. All of this can happen while they are simply licking their paws and lying down on surfaces.
Did you know that toilet cleaners that contain bleach pose a high risk for dogs? It is because many of them like to sneak sips from the toilet. Laundry detergents that contain dioxane, sodium lauryl sulphate, and NPE cause skin irritation and rashes. When ingested, your pets will have severe diarrhea and vomiting and diarrhea. These are just a few examples of what can happen if you’re not careful with what you use at home.
According to experts, even products labelled as all-natural aren’t always safe. Some of them have essential oils, which are known to irritate the airways of your four-legged friends, and even exacerbate their asthma. This is why it’s always a good habit to carefully read the labels of cleaning detergents and hire professionals who care about the health of your pets.
Over-the-Counter Cleaning Products That are Safe for Pets
The main ingredient of our disinfecting surface cleaners is hydrogen peroxide because it eradicates 99.9% of bacteria and viruses. We use them on multiple surfaces, including metal, appliances, plastic, glass, furniture, and more. For carpets, we utilize enzyme-based detergents since they are great for removing odours and pet allergens. Our pet-safe floor cleaners are specially formulated to be used on many surfaces, such as concrete, sealed stone, and sealed hardwood. We even have an all-purpose spray that is made from plant-powered ingredients that are also safe for the environment.
DIY Cleaning Solutions
White distilled vinegar is a natural disinfectant that can be used around your kitchen. When diluted, this is great for removing stains and odours, deterring ants, and polishing natural stone surfaces. We also combine it with salt to remove calcium deposits on shower heads, faucets, and fixtures. Did you know that diluted vinegar also effectively cleans extremely dirty and grimy appliances, such as ovens and microwaves? We create a solution that loosens any food stains and wipe them down with clean microfiber cloths. Moreover, we soak your toilets with vinegar, make sure to close the lid, and flush after enough time has passed. The same power ingredient is also perfect for sanitizing glass windows, certain types of floors, and tubs.
Baking soda is another fantastic pet-friendly, eco-friendly, and effective product we use for homes that need extra care and attention. This is an all-purpose scrubber that removes kitchen grease and grime, polishes specific types of floors, eliminates garbage can odours, unclogs drains, refreshes upholsteries and carpets, and gently cleans painted surfaces.
