Keeping a clean pet friendly home is not impossible. It is part of pet ownership. You simply need patience and allocate extra time. Once you master these three ways, the rest will come easy.
Golden Woofs is a consumer of PL360. For this post, PL360 provided Golden Woofs cleaning products to help promote the importance of using natural cleaning for a pet friendly home. Golden Woofs only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers.
3 Ways to Keep a Pet Friendly Home Clean
1. Pet Hair – If you have pets, fur/hair becomes an inevitable part of your décor. Pet hair can be on the floor, furniture, and clothing. Managing pet hair can be a tedious task. One way to diminish pet hair is regular grooming of your pet.
2. Pet Bowls – Did you know? Nearly 45% of households with pets have one or more germs in their pet bowl. Also, the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), a public health organization, rated pet food bowls the fourth germiest item in your home. Yikes! It is important that after each meal, thoroughly clean our pet’s food and water bowls to avoid nasty germs and to keep your pet safe.
3. Pet Friendly Cleaning Products
Having a pet, I learn how to manage my allergies. I also became a bit obsessed with cleaning and sanitizing everything. One reason I am very conscious on what cleaning solution I use. I choose products that are natural and pet friendly.
I’ve been using PL360 household cleaning products that are safe for pets. PL360 uses plant-base cleanser and no ammonia, bleach, phosphates, phthalates or sulfates in their cleaning products. PL360 is committed to “create products that keep our pets healthy, happy and clean in the simplest way possible.” Here are some of the cleaning products we often use:
a) Carpeted Floors – Pet hair contains pet dander that can trigger allergic reactions such as sneezing, Once it settles on carpets, rugs or upholstery, it can be hard to remove. Regular vacuuming can help eliminate allergies in your home. Also, a good vacuum cleaner is a must for pet owners.
With PL360 Citrus Scent Carpet Powder, you can freshen up your room and carpet. The primary ingredient is baking soda and a little goes a long way. The scent is clean and not overpowering; not bothersome to you and your pet’s nose.
b) Windows/Glass Doors – Home dust particles come from the outside such as through windows, doors, and vents. Setting up a seasonal clean-up can help reduce the dust in your home. PL360 multi-surface fragrance-free Cleaning Wipes are handy to use to dust off the glass and window sill. Also, it’s great to use for glass sliding doors where most pet nose prints reside. Easy to use plant-based cleaning wipes that leave no streaks or residue.
c) Counters – PL360 Multi-Surface Cleaner is great to use on kitchen counters. It has a subtle citrus clean scent, unlike overpowering commercial cleaners. I use this often, cleaning up my baking and stove top mess. It works and easily removes sticky stuff.
d) Pet Toys – Some pet toys made from rubber need to be cleaned regularly. Your pet often puts these toys in his/her mouth.
The PL360 Multi-Surface Cleaner is a convenient way to disinfect and make your pet’s toys clean and fresh.
What kind of cleaning solution do you use in you home? As a pet parent, consider using natural, non-toxic pet friendly home cleaning products like plant-based and dermatologist tested PL360.

I agree the pet bowls are a challenge and we have to keep them clean every time… even when there was “just water” inside :o)

we were just reading about this on Ruby’s blog – did you see how adorable she is in her French Maids outfit – OMD !
Sally Tews. says
The first thing I would do is to clean the fur-babies toys,
and then my glass doors where they peak out the window.
agreed I do the same..Some people do not even think about cleaning their pets toys..
We are conscious too Sugar…Since we have a puppy we want to maintain a clean safe environment.
Terry Yang says
I clean the food and water dishes daily. I swap out identical dishes so one set can be in the sink and the clean dishes are being used.
Two French Bulldogs says
We need all the cleaning supplies we could get. Mom is making wigs from our hairs

when we clean our out vacuum it looks like there is another dog or cat inside from all the hair.

I would clean the glass doors first. They have a lot of paw and nose prints on them. I even saw one of my dogs licking the window the other day so I definitely want to clean the windows with something safe 🙂
we are always having to clean our windows from the dogs nose art.

Pugs shed like crazy – the carpet powder would be great when vaccuming up the hair

Our mom likes to use a steam mop on the floors in case we want to lick something off them. You can’t be too careful!

Bella, Roxy & Dui says
SHE never realised how much dirt and fur got into the carpet until SHE got rid of the carpet. Now it’s sweeping every day, and mopping, most.

Sandy Weinstein says
well with 3 little gals, and the oldest not able to hold it very long, i have lots to clean up. i would clean up the pee on my hardwood floors first. so when i come home, if i am gone for several hrs, i have a mess. but i dont get mad, she is almost 15 and has a little dementia.
JeanneP of bichonpawz says
We have not tried these programs, but because I have asthma, it would certainly seem to be a good product for us! I am very obsessed with the girls’ food and water bowls. They get washed and dried several times a day! I definitely need to clean some of the “artwork” off the glass windows though!!
Lots of shedding going on; I would like to get my floors really clean.
Theresa Spaid says
The first place is around the kitty litter than going to have to get to the carpet!
