I am hearing from a lot of people that they are spring cleaning while they are isolating themselves and their family from COVID-19. I think this a marvelous time to be doing just that! Get your home clean and stay productive! Since the kids are home from school they can help. But, before you get started look at your cleaning products. Are they pet friendly? Keep in mind that many of the products we use in our homes end up on the skin and mouth of our pets. Every time Fido grooms himself, licks his paws or snuggles up on the freshly laundered towels, he could be ingesting trace chemicals that may be toxic with repeat exposure.
