Tips for Cleaning Up After Your Pets

While everyone may be running around preparing for humans to attend their holiday functions, I’m equally trying to clean up after my pets. As much as humans leave messes for me to clean up, my pets are equally guilty. If you’re a pet owner, here are some tips for cleaning up after your pets.


Clean as you go

I have learned the hard way to not wait until the end of the day to clean up after my pet. Instead, I need to clean as I go. It’s amazing how messy my pets can be. From the food they leave behind around their food dish to the muddy paw prints they bring in, after using the bathrooms, pets can be a handful to clean up after.

Have your kids pitch in

Do you want to know how I keep my sanity with pets around? I have my kids help pitch in. Kids are more than able to help with cleaning up after pets. They can help with simple things, like poop scooping, paw print clean-up, walking the dog, bathing the dog, and even feeding the dog. If you don’t have a dog, they can do similar chores that I listed for other pets in the house.

Keep the best disinfectant and cleaner on hand

Pets can make a mess if they want to and there is only one product out there that can disinfect and clean like you need it to. I love using PURELL® Multi-Surface Disinfectant because it kills 99.9% of bacteria in 30 seconds. This includes cold, flu, Salmonella, and strep.

When it comes to using PURELL® Multi-Surface Disinfectant, it kills germs, just like using bleach, but it doesn’t have the terrible smell. You don’t even need water to rise the surface after you have sprayed it because there are no harmful chemicals in the formula. Get this: PURELL® Multi-Surface Disinfectant also holds the EPA Design for the Environment certification.

The next time you need to clean up after your pet, remember these tips. Pets are a part of our family, so using products that are worry-free is important. Want to use PURELL® Multi-Surface Disinfectant for more than cleaning up after your pets? You can use it for disinfecting and cleaning out the fridge, disinfecting counters and food prep surfaces for cleaning up after cooking, disinfecting toys and pacifiers, and so much more.
