Keeping a Clean Home With a Dog

Thursday, March 9, 2017

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Skout’s Honor for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you remember when you were a kid and your cousins would come over and you'd go absolutely nuts tearing the house apart, having the most fun of your life?

That is what Harlow does when Timber comes to town. She's a 1.5 year old lab pup who matches (I mean exceeds) Harlow's energy. She just visited last month it was constant playtime. It's wrestling, rope-pulling, bone stealing, couch jumping, sliding-on-the-wood floor playtime. It's fun. And also slightly exhausting because with all of that Vizsla/Lab energy comes a few messes... Have you seen their tails? Nothing is safe from being knocked after.

We've all heard the saying, a dog makes a house a home.  Well, it also makes it very dirty. Of course I take full blame for this as I clearly have no boundaries for Harlow. He sits on the couch, sleeps in the bed, eats at the dinner table (jk. maybe not...) He's a family member, why wouldn't he?

However just because our house is dog-friendly, doesn't necessarily mean that we want it to look or smell that way. Thus we go through cleaning supplies quite frequently. We recently tried Skout’s Honor products and were very impressed.

When looking for cleaning supplies there's a few things that are really important to me-

*They have to work! Sounds simple, but so many that we have used simply don't. Skout's Honor takes care of the mess and the smell.

*It's eco-friendly. All of their products are natural, non-toxic, plant-derived, earth-friendly, biodegradable, cruelty-free and safe to use around your pets, family and home.

*They give back! Skout's Honor donates back a day’s worth of food to a shelter animal with every product sold! I LOVE companies who do stuff like this.

The other thing I love about Skout's Honor is that even though it's technically called a pet cleaner, I basically use it for an all purpose cleaner and it does the job. We don't have a lot of storage in Chicago so I can't keep 100 different products on hand, not to mention I'm also pretty lazy and like to use thing as many ways as possible. The Stain and Odor remover isn't just for pet marks. I used it for for coffee spills, wine, pasta, you name it and I've probably spilled it. Of course Harlow was partial to blame for all situations so.... so I guess it could still be considered a "pet mess."

We all know as pet owners that our four-legged friends occasionally make life a little dirtier than we sometimes like it to be. But look at that face, I couldn't imagine it any other way!
