It has been about 4 weeks since I found out that my precious dog, Sasha, has Lupus. We do not know how or why, but she has an auto immune disease. Since this change in our lives I have been looking to make her as comfortable as possible. With her disease it attacks the tissue around her nose, eyes, and mouth. We were lucky that we caught it early and have her on the appropriate medication. While it can not cure her, the medication slows down the disease.
So what am I doing for her to be as proactive as possible? I am greening my dog and my home for her. I have been learning more about the affects of toxins and chemicals. For years I have been focusing on foods and staying away from additives, toxins, preservatives, processed foods and more to give my children the best I can for them. Where I have struggled and been a little lost at times is the home. I thought that all cleaning materials where chemicals and wondered if toxic free products really worked. I have been learning all I can about Natural cleaning products, what ingredients are toxic, and what are safe. I have been making great steps in greening my home with DIY cleaners but wanted to explore some Green Companies.
I was so excited when Better Life said they wanted to help me green my dog. The Love Your Dog Kit helps make everything easy and takes the guess work out. Better life has cleaning products that are safer for pets and kids around the house.

Dish It Out works so wonderful on my dishes and counters. I used it as a green pet shampoo for Sasha and it was perfect! I was not rinsing a tons of soap off her, everything rinse easily and there was no residue left on her coat. It left her clean and beautiful.
Because the dog and cats occasionally lick the windows, they make I can see clearly, WOW for glass surfaces. I was very impressed with the ability to clean and have a streak free surface. My kids love to use a oil based window crayon on the windows for window art. I encourage creativity, as long as I can clean it up. I have to say that the window cleaner I was previously using was not getting all the crayon off without serious elbow grease. I was happy that the glass cleaner work so efficiently and better for my children's little hands and the dogs occasional taste testing.
The 2 am miracle, is just that, a miracle with No rinse, No residue. "Finally, a safe nursery cleaner made for cribs, changing tables, changing pads, car seats, highchairs, diaper pails, toys, walls, doors, floors, mattresses", and DOGGIE accidents. The cats and dog have had no accidents around the house, but I have used it on the litter box and to freshen the kids rooms. The 2 am miracle has a delightful scent of lavender and chamomile, which is calming and it worked!
My other favorite product, second to the Dish It Out, is the Simply Floored. This has a very pleasant scent and easy to use. After sweeping I use a clean damp mop, spray the floor cleaner right on to the flour and mop. This is a big plus for me because I see so often how the dogs and cats eat and lick off the flour. No matter how much I pickup the kids still like to leave things for the pets. The flour cleaner and shampoo are the two ares I can see her picking up the most toxins with commercial cleaners.
The kit comes with 75 Pride Green biodegradable plastic waste bags. These have been a bit of a struggle for me to use because I can't get past my brain that it is a plastic. I gave up all plastic bags but these are biodegradable. I have used them when I take Sasha for runs. They are the perfect size for when walking your dog and you need to use something to pick up the waste. Since these are biodegradable, I feel better using them rather than regular plastic bags.
