A Mission of Green Cleaning with Your Pet Dogs

Many of us are trying to lessen our impact on the environment and find more green living ways. To implement this with your green dogs, let's start with addressing cleaning supplies. Since many are toxic to you and your dogs, learn easy tips on how to make green cleaning supplies.

Cleaning Wonders of Baking Soda, Lemon and Vinegar

Do you know that a paste made from cooking oil and salt can remove water marks? Rub your paste onto the water mark using a sponge. After a few minutes, wipe it with a soft cloth and polish it as usual. Salt and baking soda are both abrasive but are great alternatives to commercial scrubbers. They won't harm your dog if he licks the residue.

1) Baking Soda

Baking soda also works as deodorizer. Sprinkle it in your dog's bed, carpet, floor rags. Let it sit for a few minutes and then vacuum away pet odors.

2) Lemon

Lemons are good for removing spots from hard water and soap scum. That’s because of their acidic qualities. These can also be used to remove food stains from dog bowls. Cut a lemon and rub it over the spot. Or use lemon juice that has been squeezed on the area. After about 30 minutes, wipe away clean.

3) Vinegar

Distilled white vinegar can be used and is a great cleaner for floors. It also takes off pet urine stains and soap scum. Mix one gallon of water with ¼ cup of the vinegar. Mop the area you want to clean. This mix works well on both linoleum and hardwood floors.

Just start using your new cleaners one day at a time. Before you know it, you'll be well on your way to living green. It's safer for you, your green pet dogs and our environment.
