No, no, we’re not talking about your deepest, darkest secrets this morning. We’re actually talking about dirty laundry, the kind generated by your little fluff-ball without shame or remorse. Of course, we’re all aware that after a muddy run or walk a towel or some doggy bedding will have to be washed — the all too apparent paw prints left behind make it a hard to ignore fact. But what many owners forget to consider is the day to day dust and debris that is traipsed in by their pet.
A dog’s coat and paws can trap all sorts of dirty particles, which are then unknowingly brought indoors by the fur-baby. We don’t just mean fleas, ticks and other obvious nasty gnats, but also bacteria and general grime that will inevitably build up over time in your pet’s bed or beds. Thus regular washing of blankets, beds and yes, even toys, should be an essential part of your house-keeping ritual to avoid health concerns. Another important thing to keep in mind is the sensitivity of your pets’ skin, so you may want to consider using a gentle eco-friendly detergent for these precious loads of laundry.
How often do you wash your pets’ bedding and toys? Once a month? Every other week? Would love to hear your thoughts on this! Happy Monday!
