CLEAN & GREEN
Cleaning products are some of the most dangerous items in our home. But there are alternatives that can clean your house just as effectively. There are many earth-friendly options for almost every cleaning product.
Homemade solutions created from everyday pantry items like lemon juice, white vinegar, salt or baking soda are not only less expensive but have multiple cleaning purposes. Although these are nontoxic and more earth-friendly than traditional cleansers, the same care should be taken when using them around your dogs. Just because something is natural doesn’t mean it’s safe for your pet to ingest.
A solution made of 1/3 cup of white distilled vinegar with 2/3 cup of warm water can be used to shine up your sink, clean mirrors and windows, clean a stain from your carpet, or wipe down your backsplash. Lemon makes things smell fresh and another idea for a clean aroma is to boil some cinnamon sticks in a pot of water. This will make your mainfloor smell AMAZING, and wipe out air odours.
Just like adults and children, our pets can also suffer from hypersensitivity and allergies when exposed to heavily fragranced products, which are common triggers of allergic reactions, like sneezing, coughing, wheezing and skin rashes. For example: when you wash your floor with a non-pet freindly cleaner and your dog is waling on it and lying on it……they can get skin irritations and the they can ingest thest oxins as they may start to lick irritations and chew on their paws! So before you pick up that favorite cleaner of yours that makes the house sparkle and smell nice, think…..can and will this harm my pet?
