What Household Cleaners Can Be Used on Cleaning Pet Accessories?
On my last blog post, I mentioned my favourite cleaning product which was simple diluted bleach.
Hey, it may not be 100% best thing to use, however like I said, I like how broadly and multifunctional it is – it cleans and sterilize at the same time.
I understand there are lot of people may not agree to it, due to it may be poisonous and for its strong smell, so today we could talk about household cleaners that are less chemical involved and carries less risks.
It has been a long history on how vinegar acts as most handy cleaner in households; you are able to dilute it according to where you are applying it on. Apply more concentrated vinegar on surfaces with tougher stains.
- Soda Powder/ Baking Soda
Natural deodorizing tool – apply on pet beds or stained carpet, wait for 15-20 minutes and vacuum the spot. You might have to use a toothbrush to brush on tough stains like urine stains and repeat this procedure a few times to get a better result.
- Dried Lavender
Oooo lavender, the most functional and friendly plant, pretty to look at, cute being a pot plant, could use it as homemade herbal tea in minutes and best of all, natural lavender oil have the feature of being pest repellant. Get some dried lavender flowers into small fabric packets, place them into where you normally store your pet’s clothing and bedding.
- Natural Deodorant
Use natural herbal oil such as lavender, verbena, Rosemary, Thyme, Orange, Lemon, Citrus, lemongrass…etc to replace using deodorant in metal spraying cans. Just a few drops into spray bottle with clean water, you would have a nice refreshing home space.
After all, you may still find it easier to get cleaners from supermarket, and I think bleach, Dettol and general cleaner could potential become your best friend, all you need to pay extra attention on is to dilute them. Never use undiluted cleaners on your pet beds and living area, and to be honest I wouldn’t even be using them on my own living space. As much as they smells very convincing on killing germs lol!
