Whether you employ a professional cleaner or clean your home yourself, it’s vital to ensure the products you use aren’t harmful to your beloved pets. To keep your furry friends safe, we’ve explored what cleaning products are safe for cats, as well as which ones you should avoid.
What cleaning products are poisonous to cats?
To protect your cat against poisoning, it’s essential that you know what products can cause harm.
Animals are often inquisitive and can get into all sorts of trouble when left to their own devices, which is why you should keep the following types of cleaning products safely locked away:
- Oven cleaner
- Laundry detergent
- Dishwasher tablets
It’s very easy to leave any of these things lying around, especially when you clean your home yourself. For that reason, you might want to consider hiring a professional cleaner who will ensure that any products harmful to your pets are locked away when they are finished.
As a pet owner, you should also familiarise yourself with the signs of poisoning in cats, so you’re able to recognise and deal with any issues straight away.
Natural cat-friendly cleaning products
There are plenty of tips and tricks for creating cleaning products using simple, natural ingredients that won’t harm your cat or the environment, for that matter! The most popular options for natural, cat-friendly cleaning products are:
- Baking soda
- Lemon juice
Experienced and qualified, each of our professional cleaners will also be able to offer invaluable insight into natural cleaning remedies and how you can go about using the above ingredients to tackle tough cleaning jobs.
Shop-bought cleaning products that are safe for cats
When shopping for pet-friendly cleaning products, it can seem like there are hazardous chemicals in absolutely everything. However, more and more suppliers are taking a holistic approach to products, with market leaders such as Zoflora offering pet-friendly surface solutions.
The key phrase to look out for though, is ‘non-toxic’, as this will ensure there is no risk of poisoning to your precious pets. Other key terms include ‘organic’ and a ‘100% natural blend’.
