I don’t know about you, but I am so excited Spring is here!
I absolutely hate winter! It makes me depressed and I just want to hibernate for the 6 months it’s here.
(I live in Wisconsin where we only have two seasons… Winter and Construction.)
One of the worst things about Spring, (besides muddy paws), is the Spring cleaning that comes along with it. At the same time, I do enjoy it.
I hate cleaning before I start, but once I finish it feels oh so damn good!
Open up the windows to air out all the stale Winter air, clean up all the dust and grime that built up over the season, and organize to start the new season fresh.
But, being a dog mom, Spring cleaning can be a little different.
Today I want to share with you what I do. Maybe you haven’t heard of some of these ideas, maybe you have.
Either way, I think it’s nice hearing what others do so you can add or tweak your cleaning routine!

Let’s start with cleaning your dog’s toys!
Not many people even think about doing it. I know I never use to. But once I heard the idea I thought, “Duhh”!
Plush and rope toys should go in the washer and dryer. Rubber and plastic toys should be soaked in a bucket.
Get rid of any and all broken toys.

But the gist of it is to clean your dog from head to toe!
If your home is anything like mine, it’s probably covered in fur!
Luckily, I don’t have carpet!
But for those of you that do, here’s a little secret… use a squeegee on your carpet!
It pulls up all the fur! It works on furniture too, including in your car!
There’s actually a vacuum that specializes in pet fur and it has a little squeegee-like tool on it. It’s the Hoover Pet Rewind, I absolutely love it!
