What Cleaning Products are Safe for Dogs?
Pets are not just animals, they are part of our families. Just like with any other member, we all want what is best for our pets, which definitely includes keeping them away from any potential dangers. So why would you bring home dangerous chemicals and products that can harm your dog? It’s important to do your homework, inspect every cleaner and determine what cleaning products are safe for dogs.
First, think of the different cleaning products which might affect your dog: multi surface cleaners, floor cleaners, laundry detergents. Why? Well, keep in mind that dogs tend to lick/eat anything in the house and then use their mouths to clean themselves, which increases the potential to ingest a potentially harmful substance that comes into contact with their fur or paws. In general terms, it’s definitely better (both for your family and pets) to use non-toxic cleaners in any enclosed space. However, for those instances that you do need to use chemicals, you should read all the labels carefully so that you know the dangers associated with that specific chemical, the correct ways to handle it, and any precautions you should follow.
Using only non-toxic, pet-safe, green cleaning products is not only pet-friendly, but it’s also environmentally and home-friendly, too! So, without further ado, check out these 7 cleaning products that are both incredibly effective and safe for your dogs:
