Step-by-step instructions on how to take good care of dog products
We all know how much our pups love to get dirty. In fact, the dirtier they get, the happier they are!
Unfortunately, that doesn’t make us equally excited when we have to think about washing time.
That’s why when we buy things for our pets, one of the first essential rules is to purchase easily-washable articles.
Let’s start from their beds: the more natural the material, the better it is for your pet’s health.
But what about making it stress-free for you, too?
Take 2.8’s dog beds: fully removable and machine-washable, they also come with a free pack of eco-friendly laundry sheets (what’s better than something that is both healthy and sustainable? These sheets have no parabens, they’re fragrance-free and produce zero pollution!).
All you’ll need to do is unzip the bed’s slipcover, put it in the washing machine with one detergent sheet and wait for it to come out fresh and spotless. Did you know that the anti-parasitic filling is washable as well? Once you’ve separated it from the slipcover, put it in the washing machine with a small amount of delicate detergent and give it a nice refresh.
If you take your dog everywhere you go, its travelling kit must be taken good care of as well.
Would you go camping with a dirty sleeping bag? Absolutely not, right? Well, the same goes for your furry friend’s travel mat or travel bowl. If they’re washable, make sure you clean them every now and then to keep your pet’s hygiene always under control.
In case you’re using products that are not machine washable, don’t panic! Some fabrics may be too precious. But this doesn’t mean that they can’t be well-kept.
Cowhide, for example, is incredibly luxurious and yet naturally water-proof: all you have to do is wipe any stain off with a damp cloth and you’re good to go!
Waxed paper works in the same way: yes, you can put it in the washing machine, but why wasting energy and water when you can simply use a wet wipe to remove dirt?
Keeping your dog’s things clean is even better if it’s eco-friendly: choosing products that are long-lasting and natural means reducing lots of waste.
And if you’re a dog-lover, surely you like the idea of a greener world for everyone.
Especially for your trusted furry friend.
