Pet hygiene

You can't rely on pets to wash themselves every time they come in from the garden. And that's how they give germs an easy route into your home. But you can still live with pets hygienically. It’s all about the cleaning that you can do. Take extra care when it comes to washing your hands, cleaning the things they come into contact with, as well as regularly washing floors.

Follow this cleaning advice to keep your home hygienically clean when you have pets:

  • Make food preparation areas a pet-free zone: pets shouldn't be allowed on these surfaces at all. If they do jump up, clean the surface immediately with Domestos Multipurpose Thick Bleach before preparing any food.

  • Wash floors regularly: surfaces used by pets and pet feeding areas should be regularly cleaned with Domestos Multipurpose Thick Bleach, especially if babies or young children are crawling or playing on the floor.

  • Be careful with litter trays: wipe them down regularly with Domestos Multipurpose Thick Bleach, and always wash your hands after touching and cleaning them. Keep litter trays away from children and food preparation areas.

  • Keep cages and fish bowls clean: wipe cages with Domestos Multipurpose Thick Bleach and change all bedding on a regular basis. Take care not to wash fish bowls in your kitchen sink, and only use a highly diluted bleach solution that is rinsed thoroughly before the tank is refilled for aquatic use.

  • Feed pets separately: give them their own dishes and set cutlery aside that you only use for serving and measuring their food. Keep their feeding areas clean and give bowls, bottles and trays a squirt with Domestos Multipurpose Thick Bleach regularly.

How to clean up dog or cat urine

Soak up excess liquid with an old towel as quickly as you can. Then use specialist carpet cleaner from a pet store. It’ll contain chemicals specifically designed to break down the bacteria in the urine.
