Thanks Vino. That's a great help as I hadn't heard of Anistel. I'll have a look. I have a thread over in Housekeeping as I've just started clearing out a house to help a friend, but needed this bit of specific advice as he's got a (lovely) cat and hopes to get a dog in the future. I'm a long way from steam cleaning yet, (!), but I'll remember that too. Thanks again.
The CP centre I volunteer at use Anistel for every day use. I believe this is ok for all animals but I would double check first. Virkon is also used when needed along with good old steam cleaning! I tend to keep our cat out the way when cleaning at home until things are dry.
Can anyone please advise me on what is currently the best disinfectant to use around cats? I have used Virkon in the past on the recommendations of a vet and cat breeder/lover - is this still seen as the bees knees? And the best general cleaning products to use or to avoid please if there is a cat in the home? And also, are any of these not to be used around dogs?
