Can someone please tell me how it can possibly be 2017 already? I don’t know about you, but I was ready for the start of a new year. It always encourages me to look back on the past year, determine my successes, and decide what I want to work on in the next year. Ah yes, those popular New Year’s Resolutions. I mentioned earlier this week that resolutions aren’t necessarily my thing. However, I always set goals for myself. Amidst the many, many goals I have, I have several that involve the fluffy butts:
- Complete the therapy dog certification with Atka
- Find a carting class to participate in with Mauja
- Dabble in Rally with Atka (yes, pyrents – I’m serious! ?)
- Get the fluffies back on a consistent grooming schedule
I used to be so good with our grooming routine. Mauja and Atka were being brushed most nights of the week. I’d turn on the TV and give them a nice brush to end the day. While grooming isn’t something they really enjoy, I have always found it relaxing. However, I’ve been seriously slacking recently and only been brushing them about once per week. My house has paid the price for that.
Even with daily brushing, shed happens. There’s a common saying for pet parents of dogs with double coats: “My dog only sheds twice per year. For six months in the spring and six months in the fall.” It goes without saying that with only weekly brushing sessions, pet hair envelops my home. Talk about embarrassing if someone wants to swing by the house last minute! Thankfully, I’ve developed a super quick, super easy pet clean-up routine for when I slack in my daily pet grooming.
- Quickly vacuum the carpeted areas a guest might see.
- Run the Swiffer® Sweeper® on the laminate flooring.
- Spot clean the muddy paw prints with the Swiffer® WetJet, which are ALWAYS there – darn Pacific Northwest living! 😉
- If I have an extra minute, I’ll run my Swiffer® Duster over the coffee table and entertainment center to remove the fur (how does so much fur end up on the elevated surfaces?!).
There are so many reasons I love using Swiffer products, but here are a few top benefits:
- All are quick, easy, and lightweight
- The dry cloth for the Swiffer Sweeper has grooves which trap dirt, dust, and hair.
- The wet cloth easily dissolves dirt and grime without the hassle of a mop and bucket.
- The Swiffer Duster showcases Dust Lock Adhesive which easily cleans all the nooks and crannies in your house for a 3x better clean than a feather duster.
Like every product, it isn’t perfect for all situations. Pyr fur is long and thick and when I only do weekly a brushing, there is a lot to sweep up. It doesn’t always “lock” the copious amounts of fur. However, it still does a great job of collecting the fur into an easy to manage pile while simultaneously trapping the dirt that brooms miss.
Pro tip: After running the Swiffer, simply prop it in the corner. The Swiffer Sweeper will collect all the dust and hair and disguise it until you have a moment to clean up the excess. Or if you’re like me, until you decide you’ve piled up enough fur in the corner 😉
Daily grooming helps pets and pet owners bond in many ways, and can prevent shedding, but shed happens! With Swiffer, pet parents can get a thorough clean in minutes, so pet hair mess is never an obstacle to bonding. – Dr. Evan Antin, Swiffer Spokesperson
