How to Keep Your Home Clean When Living with Pets


Yes, pets sure are really cute! But the mess they leave behind is far less cute. But don’t worry, because after reading these tips you will know how to keep your home from becoming a mess.



#1: Make sure you’re brushing your pet’s hair regularly.

Prevent your pets from leaving their hair everywhere by making sure you’re brushing their hair on a regular basis; the brush will catch most of their hair.

The easiest brush to use is a rubber glove brush.





#2: Use lint rollers!

Lint rollers are not always to be only used for your clothes – you could also use them to get rid of loose fur on your pillows and curtains for example. It’s a fast way to remove these annoying little hairs from your small furnishings.




#3: Use the vacuum cleaner on your dog

There are a lot of pet-friendly attachments such as the Dyson Groom, which is designed to remove loose fur without hurting the dog’s delicate skin. If your pet doesn’t like to be vacuumed, you can try to hold the brush 5 centimetres away from their fur.




#4: Wash their toys in hot water

You can easily clean your dog’s hard plastic or rubber toys in your dishwasher. Add some vinegar instead of detergent and turn on a full cycle.




#5: Clear up urine stains

Even pets suffer from having accidents from time to time. If something like this happens, treat it by blotting with a clean towel to absorb as much as possible. After that’s done, mix up a solution of 50% white vinegar to 50% water, then pour it onto the stain and scrub it with a brush. Pour over some bicarb soda to create a bubbling mound. Let it absorb for a few minutes and then wipe and vacuum up.
