Love your pets but not their smell? Here are top ways to keep your home fresh and your furry friend happy.

We all love our doting dogs and cuddly cats, but when you cohabit with these loveable creatures, a certain whiff can enter the air. Whether it’s the lingering smell of wet pet food or the soggy doggy himself, pets can cause a smell that’s quite an assault to the nose, especially for any guests who might be visiting and not used to their whiff.

But there are ways you can blitz those smells, so that pets and noses are happy at home.

Let’s get fresh

There are a few things you can do to keep your home smelling fresh and clean, but first and foremost, you’ve got to freshen the place up. And the good news is that it’s easy, as you can simply give your entire home the Febreze treatment to eliminate those odours.

Grab a bottle of Febreze 2X Pet Odour Eliminator fresher and spray it throughout your home. The OdourClear technology has twice the odour-eliminating ingredients, so it doesn’t just mask bad smells, it eliminates them, leaving behind nothing but a light fresh scent.

And if your pet likes to laze on a particular sofa, spray the seat with Febreze Pet Odour Eliminator Fabric Refresher. Once it’s dry, any bad smells should be a thing of the past.

Once your home has been refreshed, you can focus on a couple of problem areas to blitz the problem at the source...

Where your feline dines

The smell of wet pet food can be unpleasant if you’re not used to it, so if you feed your pet in the kitchen, the whiff can be off-putting to guests joining you for dinner.

Kill the smell at the source by plugging in an Ambi Pur 3volution Pet Odour Eliminator – available as a starter Kit or refill. The alternating scents will ensure the area smells fresh and pleasant, no matter what your pet has for dinner!

Toilet troubles

If your furry friend is a kitten, you’ve probably got a cat litter tray somewhere in the house, so when your pet goes to the toilet, you’re the one who has to flush.

To avoid smells becoming a problem, make sure you empty your cat’s litter tray once a day so that the smell doesn’t linger. You could also try using clumping litter so that you can easily remove the smelly bits instead of emptying the entire tray. Alternatively opt for litter that works to lock in those odours.

And if there’s a plug socket close by, remember to plug in your Ambi Pur 3volution Pet Odour Eliminator here too.

And don’t forget the car

If you have a dog, you probably have a smelly car too. Especially if you take them home in the car after a wet walkies in the park. But you can help keep your car smelling fresh with the Febreze Pet Odour Eliminator Car Clip, which you can simply pop on your dashboard and forget about – along with those wet dog worries.
