Tips from Sue: Cleaning Up After Pets

Author: sueh

Seventh Generation All Purpose Cleaner(ED: Sue H. leads Seventh Generation's Consumer Advocate's team, and is a great resource for tips on natural cleaning.)

If pets are a part of your Planet Home, your regular cleaning routine probably involves removing animal hair -- lots of it.

After years of trial and error, I have hit on a great method: Lightly spray a cloth or fabric brush with any of our spray cleaners. (My personal favorite is our Shower Cleaner, which has a great fresh scent.) With cloth or brush in hand, you can use our cleaners on furniture, stairs, pillows, and other places your pets frequent.

This technique can also remove the scent of an animal no longer in the home. My white cat loved to sleep on my purple wool coat, and this method was the only thing that kept the coat purple.

The sodium lauryl sulfate seventh generation uses is not the same "chemical" kind in conventional cleaning products. It is from a palm kernel or coconut-derived cleaning agent. Everyone in this country truly needs to make the switch to all green products.

If sodium lauryl sulfate is toxic...why is Seventh Generation using it in the "green" products?

My dog is one of several reasons why I think it's important to use environmentally friendly cleaners. My husband's car was smelling like old running shoes and wet dog for far too long. I couldn't use my steam carpet cleaner to clean the car upholstery. I tried Seventh Generation Carpet cleaner instead and it worked like a charm. Thanks.
