Expert Picks: 6 Must-Haves to Conquer Your Pet Mess

Shop our pet lifestyle expert’s top picks for cleaning up hair, dander and dirt.

Bissell® Bark Bath

A DIY dog bath is by far the best way to keep your dog clean, but it’s not always the easiest way, says Rosalyn Acero, a pet lifestyle expert and the author and creator of the Golden Woofs blog. The Bissell® BarkBath™ makes it simple: fill the tank with water, pour in the included no-rinse shampoo and start. “There’s no splashing everywhere, and no mess,” says Acero. It’s portable so you can use it anywhere—in the garage, in the bathroom, out on the patio, or when you travel.


Shark® DuoClean™ Slim Upright NV202 Vacuum

“If your pet sheds, you’ll want to use this every day,” says Acero. Lightweight, easy to maneuver and slim, not to mention powerful, the NV202 vacuum also features Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology®, a HEPA filter and two different attachments that lets you pick up pet hair, dander and debris with ease.


Sure Fit® Water-Repellant Pet Furniture Cover

Pets love to lounge, but they bring all kinds of stains with them. These easy-to-use furniture covers can help protect your pieces, says Acero. “They’re washable and water-resistant, and the stay-put elastic material keeps the covers from moving so you don’t have to worry about them falling off when you’re not around.”


Spotty Pet Hair Remover

This giant super-stick lint roller cleans rugs, furniture and curtains, and is super-convenient. “When I have visitors, it’s a fast and easy way to clean furniture and even pet beds,” says Acero. “It’s perfect when vacuuming is not an option.”
