We've all been there....visiting a friend or family member with a cat or a dog.....as you get up from the couch, you're covered in pet hair!!! With Spring officially here, cleaning and organizing your home should include your pet's accessories:
- Manage Pet Hair
The biggest issue many pet owners face is animal hair -- on floors, furniture, and clothing. Place an old towel or sheet wherever your pet likes to rest, and periodically shake it outside to remove most of the hair before tossing it in the washing machine.
- Are you brushing your cat or dog?!?!? Whether short haired or long haired, brushing is good for your pet's circulation, skin and naturally it makes for a beautiful coat and less hair around the house.
- Getting pet hair off of the carpet is best with a HEPA filter. Hardwood floors are best handled with a Swiffer like mop/broom-not something that will just push the hair around.
- Mani/Pedi anyone?!?!? Keeping your pet's nails trimmed regularly will keep scratching of furniture to a minimum.
