Are natural house cleaning supplies important for your dogs health?
Your dog sleeps on the floor. They walk around on the floor, and then they groom and lick their paws. And don’t forget that your dog’s sense of smell is up to 10,000 times more sensitive than your own. If your chemical cleaners smell strong to you, can you imagine how your dog feels.
Many common household cleaners contain ingredients that are highly toxic to dogs. Constantly breathing in these toxins or absorbing them through their paw pads into their blood stream.
Here are a few helpful cleaners that are natural and easy to make. The humans in your house may thank you also!
