Spring cleaning tips:

  2. Replace rags, sponges and mops to reduce the spread of bacteria.
  3. Clean your Modkat litter box and liner with dish soap and water.
  4. Have a second Modkat litter box liner handy, so one can dry while the other is in use.
  5. Vacuum window sills and screens to reduce allergens when letting in the first fresh spring air.
  6. Clean baseboards with fabric softener sheets. This adds an anti-static residue, which will repel dust and pet hair.
  7. Throw cat bowls in the dishwasher regularly to reduce bacterial buildup.
  8. Wash cat toys, and freshen up the catnip.
