It’s an inevitable fact of life as a pet owner.
For many families, cleaning up their pet’s messes is a major source of stress. In fact, 47% of pet-owning Americans and 58% of pet-owning parents think that cleaning up their pet’s messes is a major source of stress for them.
I can relate because I used to be one of those stressed messes!
But don’t worry, be happy!
Swiffer makes hairy days stress-free when dealing with the overwhelming pet hair and dandruff issues that our beloved pets tend to leave behind. And the best part is that your kids will beg you to clean up the hairy mess when using the effective Swiffer products.
At first, I thought it was just my own quirky kids that found using Swiffer products to be an honor, but I was wrong.
I had the opportunity to spend some time with a family that had a hairy mess due to their two dogs and fuzzball cat, Oreo. I surprised the family with a trademark BarkBox goodies and several Swiffer products: Coupon for a free Swiffer Sweeper Starter Kit, Swiffer Sweeper Dry Refill Kit, Swiffer Duster, coupon for a free Febreze product, Bark Toy, Bark Treat, Fresh Chicken Recipe Food Sample and Food Coupon, and a Welcome Home Guide featuring information from child development expert, Dr. Aubrey Fine on the benefits of a pet for children and info from the Bark folks to make the adoption transition easier for pets.
The kids were ecstatic to try the Swiffer products when cleaning up the pet hair and dust. And of course, the furry friends enjoyed a few treats for being good sports during my photo shoot.
See for yourself!
The vast majority of parents agree that a pet is one of the greatest rewards for children, especially given as a holiday gift. However, many fear the hairy mess which tends to deter most families from becoming pet owners.
Swiffer products make clean up a breeze. We have added our Swiffer fanatic routine in our daily chores which ensures that we are always on top of the hairy mess.
Swiffer products make me happy.
If we skip a day or two, it’s still so easy to beat the hairy mess.
Adopt a Pet this December
BarkBox and Swiffer are teaming up to make sure cleaning concerns are never an obstacle when bringing your child’s first pet home. Through December, new pup parents who adopt from partnering shelters will get a free Welcome Home Kit packed with goodies and cleaning supplies.
There are millions of animals in need of homes, so Swiffer has joined with Bark & Co. to help make the barriers to adoption – like the cleanup – less of a challenge. Together, we are providing 10,000 Welcome Home Kits to participating shelters across the country to show how easy it is to get a thorough clean in minutes, so more families and children can experience the love of a first pet. Swiffer will also make a $50,000 total donation to distribute to select shelters nationwide this holiday season to support critical projects that will help more dogs find their fur-ever homes.
To get tips for welcoming home your new pet, visit Swiffer.com, and new pet owners are invited to share their own “welcome home” experiences with @Swiffer and @BarkBox using #ShedHappens.
