The 3 Best Ways to Pet Proof Your Home - BestCan


When it comes to your pets specifically, after your home has been upgraded/renovated there are ways to make it more pet friendly. The following are some important considerations to make:

‘Get A Fleece Blanket to Keep Beds Clean

If you love having your cat on the bed, but can’t stand the amount of laundry you have to do to remove her hairs, invest in a fleece blanket. Kitty will adore snuggling up on fleece so much that she will want to stay wherever you lay the blanket – and another plus is that cat hair washes easily off the fabric.

The cheap, no-nonsense trick to truly clean sheets is to pop furry covers in the washing machine with a damp towel. Set to wash for 20 minutes on a cool cycle, leave the covers in the machine with the towel until it is pretty much dry, then remove everything and pick off any remaining hairs with a damp sponge.

The more you pet proof your home, the more comfortable it will be for them and the better you will be able to protect your home and maintain the environment for the rest of the family.
