Recycle old clothes that have absorbent fabric, such as sweatpants or shirts that have lost elasticity. Cut into small rags, fold, and place in a small bin or drawer by the front door. When pets come in from outside on those rainy days, you have something absorbent to wipe their paws, rather than tracking mud through the house. :)
Another "handy" tip. Use odd socks. Insert your "hand" - wow the puns are running off me tonight! Sorry folks:) Anyway, putting the sock on your hand makes it easier to hold onto, so you don't fumble and drop the rag when the pet is wrestling with you while you touch their paws!
