Keeping Your Home Clean of Pet Hair

Pet owners are pet lovers. But while you love them unconditionally, there’s no doubt its hard work to keep your home hair-free, especially during shedding season. So if your pets leave fluff balls and little messes all around your home, but they’re #WorthTheMess, check out these simple tips and tricks for keeping a cleaner home with pets.

1. Use a Scotch-Brite™ 50% Stickier Lint Roller to pick up stray litter

Litter cleaning is part of every cat parent’s daily routine, but getting litter stuck to your bare feet is less than enjoyable, and hauling out the dustpan and broom or vacuum are no treat either. Have you ever thought to use a lint roller to clean-up stray litter surrounding the litter pan? Scotch-Brite™ 50% Stickier Lint Rollers are designed to easily pick up larger debris, so keep one next to your cat’s litter box for quick and easy clean-ups.

2. DIY cat litter deodorizer with just 2 ingredients

We love our cats very much but their litter box smell can become very strong, very quickly. Although there are many ways to help with the odour, one should be careful when choosing ingredients for their DIY litter deodorizer. A sprinkle of baking soda and herbs such as lavender or sage ground into a really fine powder will help you keep your cat’s litter fresh for longer!

A pristine little black dress is just a roll away, without compromising your goodbyes with Fido!

The Fast and the Furry-ous

1. Pick up hair from car seats

In a hurry to take your beloved pet to the vet before a morning meeting? You don’t want pet hair on your car seat to transfer to your killer business suit, but if that happens, don’t panic! Simply keep a lint roller in your car and a Scotch-Brite™ Mini Lint Roller in your bag or purse. After all, your pet’s health is worth the mess! You 1 - Pet hair 0.

2. Goodbye Smells!

Lingering smells in your car? If you want to get rid of all evidence that Rocky took a ride yesterday, try sprinkling baking soda on the floor and cloth seats. Let it sit overnight and vacuum it in the morning. That should do the trick!
