We get it, #ISOLIFE is getting old. There are only so many loaves of banana bread we can bake or new activewear we can buy before we start thinking, now what?

Now, hopefully this purchase wasn’t an online ‘whim buy’ and it was something you have thought about a heck of a lot before it arrives…yep, we’re talking about a puppy! And what better time to bring this amazing addition into your life, than when you have all the time in the world to show them their new home, love them, play with them, train them, and…clean up after them.

Here comes the not so cute part. So, your new pup is adorable and the light of your life (and insta feed). But how do you clean up all their pet messes?

When we are living, lounging, eating AND working at home, you want your house and backyard to be like a sanctuary, somewhere you actually want to be as well as have to be, and somewhere that’s CLEAN!

For us at TF PETS, it’s all about natural and organic, just like our humans over at TRIPLE FIT. That’s why we are so stoked we found GOOD SCRUFF!

This Aussie owned brand is plant powered, eco-friendly and non-toxic making it safe for your pets, your family, and the planet. Yep, the planet, even their packaging is biodegradable, recyclable and reusable. If you hadn’t heard of them before, you are welcome.

When I got my little energy ball, Louie, it wasn’t long before cleaning products became my best friend. Little accidents, big messes and dirty paws, all made their way into my house. And while ‘human cleaners’ did the job on the surface, were they actually cleaning?

Yeah well short answer is, NO.

Dogs’ noses are far more sensitive than ours, so while I thought that pee smell was gone, the ammonia was still there and little Louie made it a thing to keep going back to the same spot to pee. Delightful right? Good Scruff actually breaks down pet urine stains and completely neutralises odour at the source! Even my pups’ nose didn’t know where he last went, so he resorted to going on his grass pad (winner). And best of all, its free from harsh chemicals like Bleach, Chlorine, Chloroform, and Parabens, which I noticed is in most other pet cleaning products… and no one wants that shit in their house, right.

What I tried

Patio Cleaner & Deodoriser

THE FREAKING HOLY GRAIL! I spend a lot of time outside on the terrace, which is also where Louie’s grass potty pad lives. You can see where this is going, even though 9/10 times he makes it on the grass, you can still smell THAT smell. It’s just not fresh anymore, you know.

Thank you, patio cleaner! This super charged cleaning concentrate breaks down urine stains and odour molecules and prevents re-soiling (in case that spot by the BBQ seemed to be better than the grass). And it’s designed to be diluted as strong or ‘weak’ as you require. The plant powered solution worked super-fast, destroying all and any stains, smells and other gross things, so we could get back to enjoying the fresh air and escaping the office, i.e. living room. Oh, and as if you needed another reason to get your hands on this, you can also use it to clean artificial turf! When your potty mats are too nasty not even your pup wants to stand on there, this will fix it right up!

Stain & Odour Remover

This little spray bottle of liquid gold comes everywhere now! Perfect for not only toilet accidents, but also muddy post-workout paws (Louie helps us train our clients) and everything else in between. Again, it eliminates odour at the source, so not only is that dirty smell gone for us, its completely broken down for our pups (no re-soiling the same area). I use this on my carpet, linen throws that apparently puppies love just as much as me, and especially my car seats! Popping a puppy in the back seat after a trip to the park ain’t always pretty, how can those little paws carry so much crap along with them! Think of this as your air freshener that actually cleans!

You can also use this for everyday stains, even on your clothes. I say this like its only for when your pup stains your clothes, but have you ever held a puppy, gym bag and a coffee at once? Yeah…you can use it on that coffee stain, too.

The verdict

I feel like I don’t even need to say more. After these two products, I am going back for the rest of their range (which you can find here). Working from home is hard enough, and spending each and every day at home is becoming more of a chore than a luxury. Don’t make it any harder to stay home by adding in smells, stains and pet messes! Save yourself the hassle and get cleaning the natural way with Good Scruff, so you can get back to doing what you do best, alongside your best bud.
