Spring Cleaning Safety Tips for Pets


Have you started spring cleaning yet?  Now is the perfect time to start!  As you start to go through old things and get ready for the warmer weather, remember to keep your pets in mind.

Here are a few tips to help keep your pets safe through your spring cleaning routine.

Spring Cleaning Safety:

  • Follow Labels – Many household cleaners are safe as long as you follow the directions on the label.  Remember, if it’s unsafe for you to ingest, it’s unsafe for your pet.
  • Use Water – Despite the fact that many household cleaners are safe, always keep your pets away from recently cleaned areas until everything has dried.  If you’re worried about chemical residue, dilute the product with water.
  • Use Alternative Products – If you’re worried about chemical cleaners, try all-natural ideas.  Baking soda can be used to clean up sticky areas around your pet’s food bowl!
  • Clean Your Pet’s Home – As you go about your spring cleaning, don’t forget about your pet’s home.  Make sure that their toys are clean and throw away any that are worn.
