We all love our furry friends, but sometimes they can be messy, leaving unpleasant odors and hair around the house. Removing pet hair and odors can be difficult, especially from certain fabrics.
Here are some tips to make cleaning up after your pets a little easier.
Use a lint roller to remove pet hair from furniture and clothes. This is a quick and easy way to get things clean, particularly if you have a pet that sheds a lot.
Keeping lint rollers on hand or even in your purse or briefcase can help you remove stray pet hairs as necessary.
Scented wall plugins can be a great way to minimize pet odors in your home. Choose a light, neutral scent that won’t be too overpowering for guests. These are very convenient because you don’t have to worry about manually spraying or lighting a candle.
You should also make sure that you open the windows on nice days and air the room out.
If you have stains on your carpet, many people recommend you use a mix of equal parts vinegar and water to get rid of it. Combine them in a spray bottle and gently spritz the area. Dab with paper towels and then apply baking soda to the area once it is dry. Baking soda is excellent for absorbing odors. Let the baking soda sit for about 15 minutes and then vacuum it up.
You can use various dust mops or brooms to sweep up pet hair on tile and hardwood floors. You can also use a vacuum that works well on flat, hard surfaces. There are many cleaning solutions that say they can help remove pet hair.
When you get pet stains and odors on your clothes or linens, you may need to take those to a dry cleaner. Not all fabrics can be washed at home, particularly if they are made of delicate material. A quality dry cleaner, such as Champion Cleaners, will be able to get the stains out more effectively than a typical wash and keep all of your fabrics in great condition.
Get into the habit of taking a few minutes every day to clean up after your pet. This way, you won’t let messes pile up, and it will be easier to keep things clean.
