Protect Your Dog From Toxic Cleaners

White vinegar is a wonderful non toxic product.

Most important are the floors in your house.  

You and your dogs absorb products thru the feet/pads so its best to use none toxic products on floors.

I mix 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water for mopping.  I have also read 1/4 cup of vinegar to 1 gallon of water.

I fill a spray bottle and keep it on hand.  Its easy to spray the floor for mopping.  Or you can buy a mop (like Swiffer sp) that allows you to refill the container.  Swiffer mops don’t have this option.  You have to keep buying their refills.

More uses:

1 cup vinegar and 5 cups water to clean windows.

Use full strength to rid kitchen containers of stale food odors.

Dilute vinegar with water and boil on the stove to remove cooking odors.

Moisten a paper towel with vinegar and wrap around faucets to remove hard water deposits.

Clean your dishwasher: fill a bowl with vinegar and place on bottom rack of dishwasher with no other dishes in the machine and run the cycle, turning off the machine before the drying cycle.

I read that when vinegar comes in contact with copper or lead it van create a deadly poison, so store vinegar in glass containers or the original jug it comes in.
