Our pets aren’t just animals—they’re members of the family. They make our hearts happier and fill our homes with love. Studies show that owning a pet improves well-being, reduces stress, and decreases social isolation. However, no matter how cute and cuddly your pet may be, it’s hard to deny that pet ownership is a lot of work, especially when it comes to keeping the house clean.
Luckily, we’ve rounded up five everyday products for pet owners to make life a little bit easier—meaning less time cleaning up after your pet and more time for fun.
- Robot Vacuum
Say goodbye to shedding fur and tracked cat litter on your floors with a device that’ll do the hard work for you. Robot vacuums are a hands-free way to give your space a freshly-swept feel, all from the click of a button on your phone.
- Airtight Pet Food Container
Buying pet food in bulk saves you money and extra trips to the pet store, but those big bags can quickly become stale. Keep your pet’s food fresh and protected from any mischievous behavior with an airtight food container.
- Waterproof Pet Mat
Is the area around your pet’s dish always covered with stray kibble crumbs and splashes of water? A waterproof pet mat will help you catch the messes around the food and water bowls while keeping your floors clean. Opt for one with a raised lip around the edge so water won’t spill.
- Lint Remover
As a pet lover, you know there’s no easy way to keep fur off everything. Stock up on sticky lint rollers to quickly freshen up your clothes before you leave your house.
- Car Seat Cover
Do you ever wish you could bring your pet on a car ride without leaving your back seat covered in fur, scratches, slobber, or paw prints? Invest in a washable pet seat cover that doubles as a bench-style seat cover and hammock to protect both sides of the seats.
