5 Cleaning Tips Every Dog Owner Must Know

Muddy paws, stained carpets, furry sofas, stinky floors. Every dog owner is familiar with at least a few of these messy crime scenes!

Cleaning Tips to Help Clear Dog Mess

During colder months, our dogs tend to spend a little more time inside. With more inside time, comes more messes. Luckily, there are several simple cleaning tips and tricks to that can help minimize the havoc your furry friends track into your home during the fall.

1. Clean Up Carpet Stains

Start by wiping up the initial mess with a paper towel. Make sure the area is dry before continuing to the next step. Mix about a teaspoon of liquid dishwashing detergent with a cup of warm water. Pour the solution into a spray bottle, then spray the affected area. Let it sit for a few minutes, then wash the area dry with warm water.

2. Remove Scratches from Wood Flooring

Happy paws aren't always friendly to your wood flooring! This quick trick will be sure to save you some time and worry next time your pup accidentally scratches your wood floors or furniture. All you need is a walnut to fix wood scratches in a pinch. Just rub the walnut into the wood in a circular motion. Afterwards, use a soft piece of fabric or cloth to polish the area.

3. Neutralize Stinky Dog Odors

Does your home smell a little too much like your dog? A simple vinegar and water solution will do wonders! Fill a spray bottle halfway with water and halfway with vinegar. Spray the area and let it dry. The vinegar will help neutralize odors, instead of simply covering them up. This solution works on fabric, carpet, and hard surfaces.

4. Wipe Away Fur From Fabrics

Dog hair can collect just about anywhere: couches, car seats, carpets, bedding, you name it! One quick way to remove fur from fabrics requires only one tool: a rubber glove. Put on a rubber glove, then get it slightly damp. Use the glove to collect fur from fabrics and upholstery. If you're working with a lot of fur, try using a squeegee to collect the fur instead.

5. Use Covers to Protect Bedding and Upholstery

At the end of the day, many messes are inevitable. Long-haired dogs will shed, muddy paws will leave prints, and stinky odors will accumulate between baths. That's why the best solution to messes is prevention! Next time you take your dog on a visit to vet, park, or local trail, make sure you are using a durable 4Knines Car Seat Cover. These washable covers will prevent mud stains, claw marks, unwanted bugs, and dirt from finding permanent residency in your car. Back at home, make sure your dog is equipped with a washable 4Knines Dog Bed Cover to prevent odor, fur, and moisture from accumulating on your dog's bed. In fact, frequent washing of your dog bed cover can help reduce many dog odors in your home and keep your pup comfortable all year long. As rainy and snowy weather invites all kinds of new messes, it's important to take the right steps to prevent permanent doggie damage in your home and car. We hope you have a joyful (and mess-free) holiday season with your dog! Cleaning Tips and Dog Seat Covers: Cargo, Dog Bed Liner, Bed Cover: 30% Off Premium Seat Covers

Why Did I Wait So Long?

I should have bought these years ago. Easy to use, easy to clean, and tons of headaches saved in trying to keep a blanket or covering on the car seat when taking the dogs on the trails, camping, etc. Highly recommend.

Terrific product at a great price

I am beyond pleased with everything about my new 4Knines split rear back seat cover! The fabric is soft and attractive. The fit in my 2018 CR-V is perfect. Dirt just brushes off it, and water beads and wipes right off. It couldn't easier to put on and take off. This is a wonderful product at a great price.

XL Back seat bench cover

Love our new purchase from 4Knines. We were looking for a back seat cover that would fit our new 2017 F250 crew cab and this one fits perfect. Highly recommend for those wishing to maintain their seats. The material is excellent quality and it’s quick and easy to put on and take off. We also have the bucket seat covers from this company for our 2015 Yukon Denali and have gotten a lot of use out of them over the last couple of years and they are still in excellent condition and so are our seats. Thanks 4Knines for a great product!

great product, sturdy, XL great fit for new 4Runner, cleans easy

I was worried this product might not hold up since one I recently purchased from another company ripped w/in 2 weeks from my 30lb Aussie pulling on it when trying to get into the back. I have been extremely pleased with the XL cargo liner. The straps are much more durable with more stitching and better fabric. I have a 50 lb Border Collie mix and 30 lb Aussie. They have already put the liner to the test!!! I have used it numerous times in the short 2 weeks I have had it. The XL was a great choice for my new 2017 4Runner. It allows me to strap to the front headrests and protect the whole back of the SUV. The skirt protects the bumper. It is too long when I only strap to the middle seats but I just fold under the extra fabric and still have the skirt. I use the full length most of the time and reason I got the XL. The fabric is sturdy and protected the back when the dogs spilled water. So far I have used it to haul bags of topsoil, go on a camping trip and visit family. I purchased the liner mainly to protect the back b/c we have flyball practice every week and tournaments every month. That's a lot of in/out for equipment, doggies and crates. I was very glad to see the edges fold up to protect the wheel wells. I am extremely pleased with this product and sorry I wasted money on my first purchase from other company. I have already recommended the liner to fellow flyball teammates. Shipping was great also. I ordered on a Sunday and it arrived Sat. So far I have just swept the dirt off and used a shop vac. Cleans up well and easy.
