Keeping your pet’s home fresh and clean is important for their health. It will help your home look and smell better, too.


Be certain that Fido and Tiger have a clean place to sleep. Shake out the bed, rug or blanket on which they sleep. It can be machine-washed in mild detergent, but don’t use fabric softener. Use a large washer at the laundromat if necessary. For a fluffy final product, dry it in the dryer.
