The birds are chirping, flowers are starting to bloom, and the days are getting longer. When the sun starts shining through the windows, usually showcasing how dirty they are from my dogs licking and bumping their noses up against them (haha!), it reminds me that it time to clean out the cobwebs and do some deep spring cleaning.
This year, after thinking more about how much contact my pups have with most household surfaces, I decided to look into some safer alternatives to traditional chemical cleaners.
Dogs are constantly grooming themselves, which means that any surface they are in contact with is likely being ingested. I decided to start with finding non-toxic dog-friendly DIY cleaner recipes for their dog bowls plus our floors, surfaces, windows, and toilet bowls. There are tons of recipes available online, but I chose formulas that had minimal ingredients that I had already at home, and have opted not to use essential oils for scent though some recipes include this as an option.

My two biggest goals when organizing are:
None of my organization tips below require you to have a Pinterest-worthy space or matching bins. You can certainly make it that way if you choose, but you'll see that I've personally chosen function over fashion when it comes to my organizational strategy ;-)
Without further ado, here are my top four tips for keeping your dog stuff organized!
