Within the past few years, we have been using household cleaning products more than ever. What if we told you that by trying to keep yourself safe from bacteria, you're actually putting your pets at risk of major health issues?!
Ingredients such as bleach, ammonia, chlorine, glycol ethers - found in common household cleaners can be extremely toxic for pets, children, and even adults. Cancer, anemia, liver and kidney damage are all health risks pets face when exposed to toxic chemicals. Even when toxic cleaners are closed and stored away in a cabinet, the vapors left behind can harm us, our children, and our furry friends.
Common Household Chemicals and Related Health Issues:
Ammonia: skin irritation, burns, respiratory and neurological issues
Glycol Ethers(carpet cleaners): kidney and lung damage and even leukemia
WHY NON-TOXIC CLEANING PRODUCTS ARE IMPORTANT:
Non-toxic cleaners are just that - NON-TOXIC. Products such as Petique's Odor Eliminator Collection With Photocatalyst Technology use green chemistry - which means there are absolutely no harmful ingredients. Photocatalyst Technology works with the air molecules in our eco-system to instantly dissolve and break down bad odor molecules and turns them into H2O and CO2.
Most cleaning products on the market use fragrances to mask odors so that consumers feel like they're REALLY cleaning. What if I told you the molecules that cause odors and stains are still there, even after using these toxic products?!
All pets are at risk of ingesting harmful chemicals, but cats are particularly vulnerable since they constantly self-grooming after being exposed to toxins and because their bodies do not handle toxins well due to the lack of certain liver enzymes.
TIPS FOR CLEANING PRODUCT SAFETY:
Try to use Non-Toxic cleaning products instead - make sure they are free of sulfates, alcohols, harsh irritating chemicals and detergents
Read labels carefully and follow use instructions properly
Be aware of the chemical strength, if you HAVE to use products such as bleach or alcohol be sure to dilute it
When cleaning with chemicals, place children and pets in a different room and ensure there is PLENTY of ventilation

My two cats love their feline penthouses. Featured here sharing one, they each have their own. They're the perfect ways for the cats to keep an eye on me at my desk or to look outside. I originally bought on Amazon - I love that this site has replacement roofs in case there is a fur-ball incident :D.
I’m a long distance runner and the Trailblazer pet stroller has been amazing! I can now take my dog on my runs! He can no longer run with me as he’s getting older. I love that I can still take him running with me! It makes him so happy!
My dog used to be able to jog with me, but he's getting older and can't go the distance anymore. The Trailblazer Pet Stroller allows me to continue jogging with my dog. I'll let him jog beside me for a little bit and when he gets tired, I'll put him in the stroller. I tried another stroller brand and it wasn't as easy to push as the Petique brand. Great stroller!
I follow Petique on Instagram and they are always posting the cute pomeranian using the car seat. I finally bought one because my dog is always trying to sit on my lap when I drive and it's pretty distracting and unsafe. Since I got the stroller, she's able to just sit in her car seat. It's also spacious enough for her to lie down. I'm very happy with my purchase!
