I love having a dog; he is a part of our family. However, having a dog does mean extra work in order to keep your house clean and smelling good. No one wants their house to smell like a stinky dog! By staying on top of cleaning and doing a couple thing regularly you can ensure that your house is always in top shape. Here’s how I keep my house clean and smelling fresh:
Vacuuming regularly helps control smells, pick up dog hair and dandruff, and picks up any dirt brought into the house. My dog regularly tries to bring leaves and sticks into the house to chew on, even though he has plenty of bones to chew on.
Mop Hard Floors
I hate when it rains because my backyard becomes muddy and of course my dog tracks in muddy pawprints all over the kitchen! Lucky for me, the Wonder Mop by The Libman Company is easy to use.
The microfiber GRIPSTRIPS™ lift up to 20% more dirt than a regular mop. Which means I do not have to scrub to get the dirt off the floor – love that! In addition, the power wringer allows me to remove water from the mop head. Less water on the mop head means my floors will dry faster. When the mop head gets dirty I can just throw it in the washing machine up to 50 times.
Make Your Own Floor Cleaner
It’s so easy to make your own floor cleaner and it’s safe for both dogs and kids. I don’t know about your dog, but mine like to lick the ground if it’s wet! Just combine 1 cup white vinegar and 4 cups of hot water.
Wash Dog Bed
Regularly wash your dog’s bed to eliminate odors. I use blankets for my dog so that they are easy to just throw in the washer and dryer as needed.
