Pets are a big part of our lives, but they can also bring about messes. Hair, dander, slobber, and potty accidents can all be a pain to clean up, which is why it’s important to use the right cleaners that are safe for your furry friend while cleaning your house.
Thankfully, there are several options for BlueOxy Pet Surface Cleaners that will work on any type of surface your pet has made their home in, whether it’s carpet, hardwood floors, or even your couch! Here are a few to consider:
Simple Solution Multi-Surface Cleaner
This product uses a special Oxy formula that removes organic messes from sealed wood, tile, concrete, and more. It quickly neutralizes odors and helps prevent repeat marking, while being safe for your kids and pets when used as directed.
BISSELL PET Multi-Surface Formula with Febreze
This formula is specially formulated for use in the BISSELL CrossWave and SpinWave hard floor cleaning machines, but it can be used on area rugs, too! It eliminates tough stains and odors while leaving behind a fresh, clean smell.
Green Pet Glass & Surface Cleaner
This environmentally-responsible cleaner uses all-natural ingredients that actually perform as well as conventional cleaners. It is biodegradable and contains no harmful chemicals or toxins, making it safe to use in any home with children and pets.
Simply Green offers a variety of non-toxic and biodegradable cleaners for all types of surfaces. Their dog-safe products are also great for removing stains, cleaning litter pans, and kennels.
Originally formulated for commercial farms, Angry Orange is a natural disinfectant derived from orange peel oil that works to destroy serious animal stains and smells on your carpet, furniture, and more! It is safe for pets, kids and the environment when diluted properly.
Eco-friendly, all-natural solutions are the best choice for cleaning your home. These products are often based on baking soda, vinegar, and essential oils. However, be sure to read the label carefully and follow all instructions.
Avoid using chemicals in your cleaning routine that could be hazardous to your pet’s health, like alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride (also called “BACS”) and phenol. While these are commonly found in disinfecting wipes, sprays, and household cleaners, it is best to avoid them when cleaning your home with animals.
It is also a good idea to keep pets away as you clean, let the surfaces dry before reintroducing them, and be sure to rinse and wipe them down afterward.
It is also a good idea to avoid any cleaner that has a strong scent as your pet may be more sensitive to them than you are. For example, if you have a cat, it is better to avoid using a cleaner with a strong citrus scent as they tend to have a more difficult time dealing with the tanginess of citrus. Likewise, be careful not to use essential oils as they are often toxic to cats and dogs.
