However, just like bedding, harnesses, and colours, dog laundry is equally important. In reality, dog laundry is actually pretty easy when you know how to do it properly.


Opting for high-quality dog clothing will save you much time and, yes, money. Due to the fabrics, most premium clothing can be placed in the washing machine, however, handwashing in lukewarm water is always a better idea.


Remove the stains from pet clothing

When it's time for washing, turn the dog clothing inside out and start removing as much fur as you can from the lining. Throwing them in the washing machine, or in a bowl of water before taking the time to get rid of the fur will only make the whole situation worse. This way, you will also be able to avoid washing machine clogging.


Use natural detergents

When it comes to detergents, opt for a hypoallergenic one. These types of detergents are recommended for everyone with sensitive skin as well as baby skin. Perfumes and dyes may sometimes cause irritations to pets, so make sure to check the ingredients.


Wash synthetic and natural fabrics separately

Try to keep synthetic and natural fabrics separated. Synthetic fabrics supercharge static in your laundry while natural clothing fabrics attract fur. If you wash those together, you will end up with the worst results of both. By avoiding this mix, you will be able to reduce static that often keeps the remaining dog hair that you haven't managed to dispose of stuck on the clothes.
