Cats Products Myths

  We're just starting this section, but we hope to have several myths solved about which products are pet safe and which products are unsafe for pets.

Swiffer WetJet - (view original letter)
  Some people are asking about the cleaning fluid used in Swiffer products. We searched for the sale of Swiffers at, and found a warning label to keep out of reach of children and pets, and in the liquid or undiluted form can be dangerous. Although, most cleaning products also have this same warning. We then visited the Swiffer website and on the FAQ page, we found the answer.

  "Is Swiffer safe for animals? What if my pet licks the floor?"
  "Great news for you and your pets! Swiffer Wet and Swiffer WetJet are specially designed to not leave a residue on the floor, so there's no need to rinse. We suggest you make sure the floor is completely dry before letting your pet walk on it, though, because wet floors can be slippery. Since there isn't a residue, there are no problems if your pet licks the floor.
   No more worrying about the owner of those muddy paw prints. You can enjoy the convenience of our Swiffer products without any worries for your pet's safety."
  In our opinion, from these facts, the Swiffer WetJet seems even less dangerous than many of the other many cleaning fluids used on many accessible areas to a pet, like the toilet, walls, or so on. You should also check some of the ingredients in your other products or see if they leave a residue.
