Pet wipes (or dog wipes as they’re also known) are special disposable cleaning cloths that you can utilize to: Clean up your pet’s messes right after spending time outdoors. Keep them handy so you don’t waste time trying to wipe down the back of your dog or clean out his bowl when he decides to relieve himself in your house. Pet wipes also save you a lot of time and energy from having to go to the dog wash and dry out his fur.
I’m sure you’ve seen it happen before: Your dog goes potty in your house, but doesn’t seem to bother doing his business in your kitchen, on your rug, or on your carpet. This is because your dog wipes don’t have nearly enough absorbent properties on them to pick up that dirt and soil from between his ears, his hair, and his toes. If you want to really punish your dog for going outside, try soaking him in a bathtub of water and salt. The salt will soften the skin and you’ll be able to get a nice scrubbing with the dog wipes. You’ll likely notice that after a short while, your dog’s paws won’t smell or become irritated anymore.
Pet wipes are also great for pet odors: When your dog has an accident, he might leave behind some unpleasant odors in his surroundings. Some people believe that dog urine contains enzymes that can break down the structure of your hardwood flooring, causing it to decay and fall apart. Other people believe that pet odors come from the digestive system of dogs, causing diarrhea and vomiting. This is largely untrue, as most animal excrement is formed by bacteria and flies are easily killed by simple household deodorants. Household cleaners, on the other hand, only kill bacteria and don’t kill off living viruses like the flu. A quick dip in a household cleaner will not do much for these odors.
Deodorizing wipes can also be used as a tool for cleaning up messes. Use them when your cat has an accident in the house or has just plain old dirty paws. They can be dampened with water in the case of a cat with fleas, but a dog with urine will need a cloth. Wet wipes can be used to clean up spills and dirty diapers, and then they can be rinsed with warm water, but be sure to use the detergent sparingly. Dog wipes usually have milder detergents than household cleaners so accidents will be minimal.
The dog and cat parent share a close relationship and many cat owners have problems with their children growing their mane or tails long enough to brush it into the face of their dog. This can cause serious skin irritation, even in tiny breeds like Chihuahuas. These types of allergies can be controlled with a special type of shampoo that is designed for the coat of dogs. Most pet parents have found this method to be helpful in keeping their children from aggravating their pets and in minimizing the appearance of dog and cat dander on their children’s skin.
There are other types of products on the market that are designed to help people who suffer from allergic reactions to environmental chemicals. These types of allergies are caused by proteins called lectins and they attach themselves to the surfaces of the body. They can be avoided by avoiding harsh shampoos and rinses, and by being careful about what cleaners you use on your surfaces. Pet wipes are made with aloe vera, which is an all-natural product that won’t harm animals or humans. You can also read labels carefully to make sure that you are not buying a cleaning agent that will damage your animals’ skin, coat, or hair further.
