In honor of National Pet Month, we wanted to highlight some pet-friendly cleaning product swaps to keep your fur babies (and human babies) safe and healthy. So many of the cleaning products we grew up with are extremely dangerous to animals, especially if ingested. We always recommend storing all cleaning products, even pet-friendly ones, away from pets and children. Additionally, you should keep pets away from areas you’re cleaning to keep them safe. Switching out toxic cleaning products with pet-friendly ones is easier than you think, and it’s totally worth it! Keep reading for some easy, pet-friendly cleaning product alternatives.
Pet parents should avoid these ingredients in cleaning products:
- Isopropyl Alcohol (rubbing alcohol)
- Aerosol Sprays (disinfectants, air fresheners, etc.)
Swap out your traditional cleaning products for these pet-friendly products!
