Keeping a household clean is one of adulthood's most daunting tasks, especially with work and prior commitments keeping you running out the door. Being neat and tidy is made even more difficult by the presence of dogs or cats, who are so adorable it's easy to shrug off the shedding, vomiting, peeing, and more.
These pet-safe cleaning products are three-in-one: cruelty-free, safe for your pets, and perfect for keeping your house in order.

Rocco & Roxie Enzyme Non-Toxic Odor and Stain Remover
Whether you live in a home with a litter box or the world's stinkiest socks, Rocco & Roxie Enzyme Non-Toxic Odor and Stain Remover promises to make all stains and odors disappear.

ECOS also makes specialty pet products such as grooming spray, litter deodorizer, pet shampoo, and more.
Vinegar and baking soda
If you're a traditionalist or on a tight budget, there's nothing that works better in tandem than a little white vinegar and baking soda. Combine the two with lemon for a citrusy, all-natural stain remover and general cleaner. While baking soda and vinegar are non-toxic to animals, if dogs consume straight baking soda, they may end up with an upset tummy, so be careful when you're cleaning!
