Blankets

On the main floor off the kitchen, I have 2 blankets folded in half on top of each other. The girls like to lay on them to keep an eye on me when I’m cooking. To clean blankets, it’s as simple as laundering the materials in a washing machine. It is best to use hot water and a mild detergent.

Soap to help kill any insect eggs that may be harboring amongst the bedding. It is preferable to line dry in natural sunlight.

Cedar Beds

If your dog’s bed has a zippered cover that contains cedar wood chips, which work well to deter insects, frequent washing of the cover is recommended. Change the cedar chips every few months so that the natural repellants found in the cedar chips are at their strongest. Beds that unzip and allow you to remove the cedar work best. Cedar-filled beds aren’t ideal for pups who aren’t potty trained, so wait till your pal’s housebroken to introduce this type of bedding.

Foam Beds

Foam beds take a little more effort to clean. Start by removing the fabric covering. Wash it in a machine using detergent and cold water so that the cover does not shrink. Hang it outside to dry. (Natural sunlight is best)

While the washing machine is running, fill a tub (if you don’t have a mud room sink, bathtubs work well) about half way with warm water. Add a small scoop of laundry detergent/liquid to the water. Place the foam in the tub and work the soapy water into it with your hands. Don’t use a brush because it will destroy the foam. (You don’t want foamy pieces all over your bathroom!) Time to rinse! Once you are satisfied that the foam is clean, empty the wash water and refill the tub with clean water. Use your hands to work the clean water into the foam for a thorough rinse. You may have to squeeze the foam a few times in order to remove all of the soap.(Using rubber gloves will help protect your hands from pruning!) The rinsing is done when there are no more signs of soap flakes. Take the foam outdoors and place it in the sun to dry.

After the cover and the foam are thoroughly dried, replace the cover and the dog bed is as good as new
