Spring Clean with DIY Cat-Friendly Cleaning Products for a Purr-fectly Fresh Home

As the flowers bloom and the sun shines brighter, there's no better time to freshen up your home. But wait, before you reach for those store-bought cleaners, let's chat about some safe DIY cat-friendly cleaning product alternatives for your home and furry companions.

Many store-bought products contain harsh chemicals like ammonia and chlorine, which are risky for humans and cats. They can irritate skin, eyes, and lungs or cause poisoning.

These cat-friendly cleaning products are safe for your feline friends, friendly on the wallet, and better for the environment.

🧴 All-Purpose Cleaner

Say goodbye to harsh chemicals and hello to a simple yet effective all-purpose cleaner. Mix equal parts water and distilled white vinegar in a spray bottle, and voila! You've got yourself a cat-friendly cleaner that tackles dirt and grime on countertops, floors, and more. 

🪟 Glass Cleaner

For streak-free windows and mirrors, skip the store-bought cleaners loaded with toxins. Instead, combine one part distilled white vinegar with two parts water in a spray bottle. Spray onto surfaces and wipe clean with a lint-free cloth for a sparkling finish that's safe for both you and your kitty.

🧽 Carpet Deodorizer

Got stubborn odors lingering in your carpets? Fear not! Sprinkle baking soda liberally over carpeted areas and let it sit for at least 15 minutes (or longer for deeper odors). Then, vacuum up the baking soda to banish odors and leave your carpets smelling fresh as a daisy. Bonus: baking soda is non-toxic, making it safe for pets and humans alike.

🌬️ Air Freshener

Say goodbye to synthetic air fresheners that can irritate your cat's sensitive nose. Instead, create your own natural air freshener by simmering a pot of water with sliced citrus fruits, herbs like mint or rosemary, and a splash of vanilla extract on the stove. Not only will it fill your home with a delightful scent, but it'll also freshen the air without any harmful chemicals.

🧼 Stain Remover

Accidents happen, especially when you have a furry friend running around. For pet-friendly stain removal, mix one part hydrogen peroxide with two parts water and a drop of dish soap. Blot the stain with the solution, then rinse with water and blot dry. This gentle yet effective solution will lift stains without leaving residue or harmful chemicals behind.
