How do you clean a Kong Lounger Dog Bed? What to Know

How do you get the rubber smell out of KONG?

This is the best way I’ve found to get the nasty chemical smell off of brand new KONG toys. I soak them (usually overnight ) in a bath of dish soap and water with a few drops of lemon EO. After rinsing, I put them in the top rack of the dishwasher for another wash cycle.

Step 3 – Get That Bed Seriously Clean With Hot Water

When you clean a dog bed, make sure to read the instructions on the tag of your dog bed for the manufacturer’s recommendations for how to care for it.

Assuming it complies with the guidelines, and if it fits, put the bed in your washing machine and wash it in hot water. If it has been a while since the last time you cleaned the bed, you may want to run it through the entire cycle twice.

If the bed is too large for your washing machine, you can take it to a laundromat and use an extra larger washer, or wash it by hand in your bathtub. If you choose to wash the bed yourself, first, fill your bath tub with hot water. The hot water will kill any remaining insects and eggs remaining on the bed.

Pour a capful of mild detergent into the water, then add a 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar or white vinegar. The vinegar is a very effective deodorizer, it is much cheaper than most commercial products, and most importantly, it is also safe for your dog.

When choosing the detergent to use, make sure to pick a pet safe detergent. Harsh commercial cleaners can be very irritating to a dog’s skin, and some can even be toxic.

Be sure that the soap you choose does not have any harsh or toxic chemicals. Here is a list of chemicals you should avoid

  • Bleach
  • Chlorine
  • Fragrance additives
  • Petroleum distillates
  • Nonylphenol Ethoxylates or NPE
  • Pet stores offer dog friendly detergents and cleaners, which should be free of these chemicals. Use these to clean a dog bed rather than harsh, toxic cleaners

    When the water is ready, put the bed in the tub and make sure the water covers it completely. Then let it soak for at least 15 minutes.

    How do you clean a stinky dog bed?

    Wipe down the fabric on your dog bed with a mixture of one tablespoon of water and a cup of distilled white vinegar each week. Put your dog’s bed in direct sunlight once a week to kill bacteria and remove odors. Sprinkle baking soda over the dog bed when it begins to stink, and then vacuum it up.
