Make Sure They have a Toy Box
I have a chewer. My newest rescue, Joy, is still a baby. She went after my sofa and has taken aim at shoes, clothing and pillows. I dug back in my memory bank to the last time I had a puppy and recalled that having a toy box full of perfectly chew-able toys helped a lot. This actually helps keep my house clean because there is place for every toy plus the stuffing in most dog toys is super easy to clean up. Unlike the tiny threads in my sofa which are impossible to find in one try, the stuffing can be picked up and tossed easily!
Use Scotch-Brite® 50% Stickier Lint Rollers
I have Scotch-Brite® 50% Stickier Lint Rollers everywhere. They are in the basket next to my chair with my remotes, hung on a removable hook in my closets and easy to grab from my bedside table in my bedroom. These rollers unstick dog hair, sandy paw prints, crumbs from the kids and anything else my busy family manages to bring in. Since I do let all four dogs sleep on the bed, it is a must that I use the Scotch-Brite® 50% Stickier Lint Rollers when I make the bed to get it off.
My dogs also are allowed on couches, so having the Scotch-Brite® 50% Stickier Lint Rollers within arms reach helps me keep the couches hair free.
If I do get dog hair on my outfit, rather, WHEN I get dog hair on my clothes, the Scotch-Brite® 50% Stickier Lint Rollers hanging in the closet helps me clean up and look good instantly.
I won’t lie, I have even used the Scotch-Brite® 50% Stickier Lint Rollers on my living room carpets. Since it picks up more than hair, I can spot clean the carpet of tiny paper scraps, leftover treat kibble and other larger items without having to get out my large vacuum! These things are a tidy house saver when you have multiple pets and kids!
Groom Your Pets Regularly
My house seems to smell more like dog the dirtier they are. I also have learned though years of pup ownership that they seem to shed more when they have dirtier skin. So I groom my dogs regularly to keep their skin and hair as in tact as I can!
Assign the Kids a ‘Pet’ Day
Kids are a HUGE help in keeping my home tidy. But with the constant, ‘Please pick up your room!’, sometimes pets are forgotten about. So one of our chores is to assign the kids a Pet day! On that day they are responsible for feeding the dogs, picking up any stuffing that came from the toy box toys, brushing the dogs if they need it and helping by using the Scotch-Brite® 50% Stickier Lint Rollers to keep beds and couches clean! They actually love their Pet Day chores more than any other chore!
Change You Air Filters
I consider a home that smells good to be clean feeling. Even if there is a mass of toys on the living room floor, threatening to appear under your foot at any given moment, if the air smells clean and fresh, the house does. Since dog hair gets trapped in the air filters and can make your home smell more like dog, changing the air filters religiously every 30 days can help! In a multi pet home, this is a MUST!
Now that you have my Tips to Keep Your Home Clean with Multiple Pets, you can go to a shelter or rescue and save one this Holiday season! Put a bow on it, stock up on Scotch-Brite® 50% Stickier Lint Rollers and keep that house clean while allowing a pet to be loved all year round!
