Wash it like you wash your car
One of the main things why the ambient lounge dog beds are so easy to clean is because it is designed specifically to have a waterproof base. This means you can use it both indoors and outdoors. So do not worry too much about the dirt! If it does not have any stains and you just want to wash it off after a day of playing or chilling outdoors with your favourite dog, hose it off as if you are washing your car and you are good to go.
Wipe it with a damp cloth
If the bed has light stains, just simply wipe the fabric with a damp cloth, or use a soft brush, or sponge. Sometimes, stains are just really stubborn. If a simple scrub is doesn’t do the trick to get rid of the tough stains, you can use a pet stain remover or a gentle or mild detergent. Just make sure that the stain remover is safe for your dog and the fabric of the dog bed. This means no use of non-colour-safe bleach. You don’t want to ruin the beautiful fabric of your dog’s luxury bed right?
Use a washing machine
You might be shocked because dog beds are big and it might not fit the machine. Since your ambient lounge® dog bed has a removable top, you do not have to wash the whole bed every time.
The interchangeable cover that comes with the dog bed can easily be washed by putting it in the washing machine just like how you would normally clean young dirty clothes. This feature will save you a lot of time when your dog bed just needs a little bit of wash and you just want to maintain a clean dog bed. For example, if your dog is wet from playing in the mud outside and instantly lays down on his/her dog bed, just unzip the cover and throw it in the washing machine and line dry it!
Use your regular vacuum
For regular days when there’s just a lot of dog hair, dust and dancer, you can use your vacuum cleaner to get rid of loose dirt on the dog bed. Regular cleaning is important to keep your dog safe from bacteria and dirt that is not visible to our eyes. Especially in their shedding season, wherein some dogs shed more than others. This method will help you save time since soaking and cleaning it with water may not remove the fur buildup in the dog bed quickly.
Pet hair remover or lint roller
This is just optional, but if you want a cleaning tool that is convenient for you, you can try using a lint roller. Use it before deep cleaning the dog bed to make it as clean as possible or just use it anytime you want. However, it is important to note to avoid using it on the faux fur covers of the dog bed. This method is only suggested to be used on the base of the dog bed and the waterproof ThermoQuilt remover.
Stubborn stains and dirt are unavoidable and so cleaning your dog bed is just as important as taking care of your dog. It can be tiring to keep soaking and wringing foam-filled beds that take hours sometimes days to dry, plus, they often lose their shape.
One way of making the work easy is to buy a quality dog bed UK that is waterproof, chew-resistant, and allows you to change covers not just for the sake of style but also for hygiene and function!
