Daily hygiene is an important part of human life. Always stay ahead of the curve when it comes to cleaning the house and giving your home a livable and livable space. The same goes for pets. It's important not to forget to take care of your furry friend. They are just as important as the rest of your human family and deserve as much care as possible.
There are many tricks you can use to make your pet's life as hygienic as possible. From eco-friendly cleaners that will save you time and money to DIY hacks, you can teach yourself many things. It's also important to know how often you need to clean their toys, beds, and similar items. So we'll take a closer look at how to easily achieve this.
1. Time to throw it in the water
If you're new to pet care as a whole, the first thing you need to know is when it's time to throw away bedding and sheets when doing laundry. It's no secret that our furry friends lose a lot of hair, and if they don't bathe regularly, they also smell. So by keeping these two factors in mind, you can easily determine when to throw away their stuff during the cleaning process. When it starts to smell, and a lot of hair builds up. With this design, it's clear that you need to wash their bedding and other items at least once a week to help them maintain a healthy and hygienic lifestyle.
2. Bed wash and recliner
Pets are like members of your family, but that doesn't mean you can wash them regularly. The first thing you need to pay attention to is the hair. If you simply throw the bed away, the hair will never completely fall out and become a stubborn part of the fabric.
So first, you need to use a lint-free brush to remove all visible hair before wetting the bed. You will notice that no matter how hard you brush, some hair will still stick to the fabric. To do this, you must tumble dry the bedding and sheets in the dryer without heat for 10 minutes. It will loosen the excess hair so you can easily remove it and put it in the washing machine. Afterwards, you can soak the bedding in hot water and wash it with a fragrance-free detergent. Hot water is good for sanitizing, but always check the label for the maximum washable water temperature.
3. Wash all toys
Often pets will play with rubber/plastic or stuffed animals. Cleaning procedures are very different for both, so buckle up and take a look:
Rubber/plastic toys: These toys are relatively easy to clean because you can usually stack them together. First, you need to fill a bucket with one part water and one part distilled white vinegar. After that, you can soak all rubber/plastic toys in this mixture, scrub accordingly, then soak in simple water and let dry.
Plush toys: Plush toys can be hand-washed or machine-washed, but first you'll need to wipe off all of your hair again. If you're using a machine wash, make sure to use a gentle cycle to avoid damaging the machine.
4. Cat Mountain Climber
Cats are energetic animals, so if you want to keep your cat happy, you must have a cat climber in your home. But these climbers look like a formidable cleaning object. But the point is, it's easy if you follow a few general steps. First, you need to clean out any stubborn hair. Then it's time to roll out warm water and mild, fragrance-free laundry detergents.
You must scrub the area on the carpet with a cloth or brush moistened with a water remover. Then, wipe with a simple damp cloth to remove any soap. It is then air-dried.
5. Disinfect the litter box
Litter boxes need to be cleaned and disinfected regularly as cat/dog droppings can pose a health risk to your household. To clean your pet's litter box, you first need to remove all sand, then scrub with warm water and a mild fragrance-free cleaner that won't leave any chemical residue. Wash it, let it dry, and fill the litter with clean sand. Make sure to wear a disposable mask and gloves when cleaning.
6. Food and water dishes
You don't reuse dirty dishes for your next meal, right? The same goes for pets. Their food and water trays need to be cleaned daily to stay healthy. Bacteria grow very fast in food/water bowls, so it is important to take care of them regularly. They're easy to clean in the dishwasher, but if that doesn't sound appealing, you can definitely wash your hands with lukewarm water and mild dish soap.
Taking care of pets is a tough job, almost like taking care of small children. So if you're a busy person who barely has enough time to keep up, it's worth considering the benefits of hiring a professional cleaning service, especially if you have pets. That said, we hope some of these tips will help you take care of your furry friend more easily.
