I have previously written about using vinegar to clean your house in order to make it cat-safe as well as remove pet odours; apple cider vinegar is also a good supplement to add to cats’ drinking water for health.
Another common, safe-to-use cleaning agent is baking soda, an ingredient usually used in cooking. Baking soda can be used for cats in a few ways:
- Sprinkle some baking soda in the litter tray to minimise odours
- Use baking soda to clean cats’ teeth, especially useful for older cats
- Baking soda can be used to remove stubborn stains, useful for cats that like to hide in dirtier areas, for longhaired cats that don’t groom themselves much, or again for more senior cats.
The best part about baking soda, like vinegar, is that is food-grade and therefore non-toxic.
