Dogs and cats make a wonderful addition to the family, but they don't help the germ situation in the home – especially when it comes to their food and water bowls!

As part of your spring cleaning this year, why not initiate this new cleaning ritual: wash your pet's food and water bowls every time you fill up the water bowl with fresh water. 

Hand-wash the dishes each time you refill them – MOLLY MAID recommends using regular dish detergent if you wash them by hand – then put the dishes into the dishwasher once a week.
