About five years ago, our family decided (I decided and dictated my mission) to go chemical-free in our home. I'm pretty sure we've tried it all. I'll be honest: natural cleaners don't always work as well as the hard stuff. We have found a handful of brands that we trust to get the job done the natural way, and I am happy to share with you that we have discovered a great new line of natural, plant-based products to add to our go-to list. PL360 is "for pet lovers everywhere," and has created a line of safe, natural products with our furry friends in mind.
PL360 sent me products in exchange for my honest review. PL360 is not responsible for the content of this article. All opinions are my own.
Grooming. Even Fido wants to look and feel good. This lineup of stellar plant-based grooming products gets the job done the natural way.
Household. Pets are even more sensitive than we are when it comes to the cleaners we use around the house. Cleaning the natural way is super important.
Health. Natural supplements promote a healthier lifestyle for your dog. No need to introduce chemicals when we are trying to boost our pet's wellness.
PL360's products are serious, but their philosophy is lighthearted and heartfelt:
Our best lessons in gratitude, love and compassion often come from our pets. The same goes for what we know about playing freely and living fully. Each day, or pets look at us like we are superheroes, not knowing they are the ones who inspire us.
To repay them for their devoted, unconditional love, we owe them everything we know about their wellbeing. That's why for 14 years we've made it our mission to create products that keep our pets healthy, happy and clean.
trying PL360's natural products
PL360 sent us a few of their natural products to try out: three products from their household line as well as the all-in-one pet shampoo and conditioner from their grooming line.
When I first used the multi-surface cleaner and multi-surface cleaning wipes, I was surprised that there was virtually no fragrance, which, in my book, is a great thing. The cleaner has a mild, almost imperceptible citrus scent, while the fragrance-free wipes just smell fresh. Neither has ammonia, bleach, phosphates, phthalates, or sulfates. The containers suggest I use them on dog and cat toys, water and food dishes, small animal cages, countertops, stainless steel, tiles, walls, and cabinets. Check, check, and check. These cleaners did a great job, and I can feel safe using them even on things N.A.S.H.A. puts into her mouth or eats from. I also used the multi-surface cleaner on my tile floor when a visiting pooch mistook it for the potty. Oops. No fear! PL360 came to the rescue!
I haven't used carpet powder in YEARS. I love the idea of it, but most of them are filled with fragrances I can't handle and chemicals I refuse to subject my family to. PL360's carpet powder combines baking soda with plant-based neutralizers to eliminate odors and contains no ammonia, bleach, phosphates, phthalates, or sulfates.
Hmmmm...we have this one rather pet-ish smelling area of carpet in our upstairs hallway, so I decided to see if the claims held true. Though the powder was fairly fragrant as I was sprinkling it and while I gave it a few minutes to dig in, it was no where near as potent as other powders I've used in the past. Once I vacuumed it up, only a mild, fresh scent was present. Over the next few hours, I didn't smell anything. No scent, and no doggy odor. Neutralized! A success, in my book, and I'll be happy to use this carpet powder again. As an aside, I love how openings on the top are labeled "little mess" and "big mess." A product that works and makes me smile...awesome.
Since my house was squeaky clean, I couldn't leave scruffy N.A.S.H.A. to dirty it all up again, so into the bath she went with PL360's all-in-one shampoo & conditioner in the "fresh pomegranate" variety. PL360 asked me about N.A.S.H.A.'s coat to be sure I was getting the grooming product best suited for her. If you've been here reading my blog before (thanks for coming back), you know that N.A.S.H.A.'s thin, dry coat is helped by natural supplements, but she still tangles easily. The all-in-one PL360 sent me says it is a "deep conditioning formula for dogs with coarse, dry coats that are prone to shedding and tangling."
N.A.S.H.A. is never a big fan of the bath, but we got her in and got her started. My daughter helped me scrub her clean, and I will say that she did smell more like a fresh pomegranate than a wet dog. We loved how well it sudsed up in N.A.S.H.A.'s fur. N.A.S.H.A.'s favorite part of the bath is always the drying off process...a little on the towel, and a lot on the carpet (which I'd thankfully just cleaned with carpet powder) and a lot on the couch. We waited for her to fully dry, then gave her the brush test. Her fur usually tangles, so, just like brushing my daughter's hair, I'm often met with complaints, but after using PL360's shampoo & conditioner, her fur was easily brushed and silky soft!
The most important factors for me when selecting products for my family and my home are safety and effectiveness. PL360 checks those boxes, and more. Their products are created specifically for people with pets, and we all know how messy life is with furry family members. Now no one else has to know (wink). Though their products are ultra safe and effective, PL360 doesn't take themselves too seriously. Their product descriptions and packaging are light-hearted and approachable, which almost makes cleaning fun.
We're giving away two PL360 product packs just like the one we received! We'll choose one winner at random. You'll receive one product pack for yourself, and we'll send another to your favorite charity. Pretty great, right?
We know you'll love PL360 as much as we do! Good luck!
