“Everything I know. I learned from dogs…” 

– Nora Roberts

Dogs are a person’s best friend. They’re always there when you need a pick-me-up, and their wagging tails can put a smile on anyone’s face. Yet, as loveable as these creatures are, they can be rather messy, too. That’s why you should follow these clever house cleaning tips for dog owners so that guests can’t even tell that Fido lives there.

Performance Fabric

There are many benefits to performance fabric that every dog owner should know. The material is more durable than others. This means that it won’t rip if your dog jumps on the couch. Also, the fabric is easy to clean, so it’s okay if your pooch drools on it. The material typically exists in outdoor items, and manufacturers design it to withstand a little wear and tear.

Cooking Spray in the Bowls

Dogs are often messy eaters. It seems like they’re ravenous every time you pour food into the bowl. One clever house cleaning tip for dog owners is to put cooking spray in their bowls. The cooking spray will ensure the food doesn’t get everywhere when they eat. That way, you’ll have less to clean up after dinnertime.

Set Up a Cleaning Station

Another brilliant idea to keep your house tidy if you own dogs is to set up a cleaning station. What’s a cleaning station, you ask? Well, it’s an area right by the door where you can clean your pooch after they come indoors. Here are a few things you should have in the spot to ensure that your dog is always spotless:

  • Wet wipes with few chemicals to ensure their paws don’t break out in allergies
  • Microfiber towels to dry off your pup after they come inside
  • Treats in the spot to keep them occupied while cleaning

Dogs make our lives better. However, they can create messes if left to their own devices. For this reason, you should think of clever ways to keep your house clean. Follow these tips to ensure that your home is spotless, even if you have a furry friend around.
