They have been a lifesaver for not only myself. These cleaning hacks are a lifesaver for my whole household.
We love our pets. Many pet owners say that the comfort of their pets come above the comfort of the people who visit their home. Because, well, the pets were there first.  But, what about the in-laws who always complain about the dog hair hanging out on the couch? What about the best friend who can smell your dog five miles away?  We try our best to keep these individuals happy. After all they are a part of our lives.
Not all of us have fancy tools at our disposal when it comes to all the latest cleaning technology.  Salute to the individuals who do!   Have you invested in a $1,000 vacuum that removes ever micro-spec of hair? If not, we have a few cleaning hacks. Cleaning hacks that will help you get your home “guest ready.” While you tackle everyday life with pets.

Cleaning Hacks: 5 For Tackling Pet Messes!

1.) Pet Hair Removal – We love our pets. But falling in love with their hair is another story.  Thankfully removing pet hair doesn’t take a team of scientist to complete.  You can apply a light misting of a static removal product over your furniture and carpets. Then allow it to sit for a few minutes.  Now you can vacuum the hair away!
2.) A simple solution to getting rid of pet vomit – It happens to the best of us. Fido vomits his leftovers onto your brand new rug.  The vomit will be easier to remove once it has dried.  Allow the vomit to dry and then vacuum it up.
3.) Remove Urine Safely – Chances are you have encountered urine on your carpet from your pet.  Sprinkle baking soda over the urine spot. Let it sit for quite a while. Then you can vacuum it up.
4.) Squeegee the hair up! – Do you still have pesky pet hair in your carpet? You can take a squeegee across the carpet. Bye bye pet hair!
5.) Mask Pet Smells – You should clean all food and water bowls in hot soapy water. Plus clean all pet bedding and/or pet toys in the washing machine.  There is also a DIY cleaning hack where you can make a spray.  The spray helps control odors.
