Pet Messes? No Problem!

pet messes cleaning tips

Pet toys find their way into all sorts of nooks and crannies around the house. Their bowls, beds and accessories may need attention too. Here’s how to quickly conquer those messes and get back to enjoying life with the furriest members of your family.

  • Corral what they need, where they need it

    If you have an entryway or a mudroom, you likely have pegs or cubbies for family members to stash coats, bags and other essentials. Give your pets the same space with a dedicated hook or basket that stores leashes and small plastic bags for walks.

  • Keep cleaning supplies within reach

    Stash fragrance-free baby wipes near the door or in the garage to wipe pets’ paws when they come in from outdoors. A great lint roller can also help remove hair and fur quickly from clothes and furniture. Have one handy in the spaces your pet hangs out the most.

  • Rely on your dishwasher

    To keep pet food dishes and water bowls from getting grubby use strong, absorbent paper towels. Simply give your pet-food dishes a good wipe with a damp paper towel, and then toss them on the top rack of the dishwasher once a week to get them fresh and clean.

  • Clutter control

    Pet chew toys are great until they get underfoot. Gather them in a designated doggy basket to keep clutter under control.

  • Clean up when messes happen

    When accidents happen on the carpet, reach for STAINMASTER® Carpet Pet Stain Remover. It eliminates odors, cleans quickly and repels dirt to protect against resoiling. The result?
