Hi there, I’m Teresa Ward. Is it possible to keep a clean house with pets? These are my babies: Tank, Nala, and Bear. Now, if you took a look around my home, you are wondering how I keep my home clean. Well, today I will show you how it is possible to keep a clean house with pets. Here are some things you should always have handy: wipes, dust mop or broom, a vacuum with a HEPA filter, white vinegar, and towels for your couches. First, let’s clear the air – or pet odor, that is. The first step to odor control is to keep the air clean. Using a HEPA filter with the vacuum, changing furnace and AC filters frequently, and making sure air ducts are clean, will help maintain that non-pet-odor smell. If you’re like me, then you don’t really mind your pets on the couch – like my baby, Nala. She spends most of her time on my couch, so I use pet blankets that can easily be removed and washed frequently. Pet bed covers, blankets, and washable toys should be washed every week to keep the area from smelling like wet dog. Toss items in the wash as normal, and add one cup of vinegar using your normal green nontoxic detergent in the wash cycle. If the item is especially stinky, add an additional cup of vinegar in the rinse cycle. It is always good practice, whether you have a pet or not, to dust or broom-sweep the floors for hair at the end of the day. And, do a quick wipe-down with handmade wipes that are naturally nontoxic in areas where pets stay. And, that’s how it’s done! Thanks for stopping by for another quick tip on keeping it clean from Teresa’s Family Cleaning.
