Can you wash the filling of a dog bed?

If you've ever had a pet, then you know that they can be very particular about what they like and don't like. One of those things is their bedding. Some pets prefer soft beds while others prefer a hard surface to lay on. When it comes time to wash the dog bed, there are some people who prefer not to do so because of how long it takes or how much work is involved with washing them. However, if you have a pet that prefers a softer surface for sleeping, this article will help guide your decision on whether or not to wash their bedding. For those looking for guidance in knowing when the best time is to wash your dog's bedding, we'll explore why these items should be.

How do you clean a dog bed without a removable cover?

There are a number of ways that you can clean your dog's bed without removing the cover. Give it a good shake outside and then vacuum it with your hose attachment to remove any loose materials.

  1. Take the bedding off of your dog's bed
  2. Wash the cover in a washing machine with cold water and detergent
  3.  Dry the cover on low heat or hang it outside to dry
  4. Put new bedding on top of the clean, dry cover
  5. Clean up any hair that may have come loose during washing or drying before putting new bedding back on top
  6. Replace old worn out blankets with newer ones for added comfort and softness..

The tough part about washing a dog bed is that it's too big for the washing machine. In this blog post, I'll go over some of the best options to clean your dog bed without having to put it in the washer or deal with handwashing.

Simply mix together equal parts of each ingredient in a spray bottle and spritz generously on both sides of your dirty dog bed. Let sit for an hour before wiping off any residue with a towel or rag.

  1. Gather the supplies you'll need for washing
  2. Fill your tub with hot water and add laundry detergent
  3. Place the dog bed in the tub, making sure it's not touching the sides or bottom of the tub

How do you disinfect a dog bed?

If you have a dog, then you know that they shed all over the place. One of the best ways to keep your house clean is to vacuum often and wash your pet's bedding regularly. How do you disinfect a dog bed? We'll tell you how!

Step 1: Put on gloves and use an appropriate cleaner according to label instructions. Spray or apply cleaner to one side of the mattress pad and allow it time to work its way into fabric fibers for 10 minutes before flipping it over and repeating steps 2-4. Step 2: Remove any visible dirt by gently scrubbing with dish soap and warm water using a sponge or rag soaked in soapy water, followed by rinsing with clear water.

  1. Wash the dog bed in a washing machine with detergent and bleach
  2. Dry it on high heat to kill all bacteria
  3.  Let it air dry for at least 24 hours before putting your pet back on the bed
  4. Add a fresh pillowcase or cover every few weeks to keep dirt from accumulating and wash as needed
  5.  Use baking soda, vinegar, or hydrogen peroxide to clean off any stains that won't come out during regular cleaning
  6.  Vacuum the mattress pad regularly to remove hair and dander that can accumulate over time.

Wash the dog bed with a mild detergent and rinse it well. Then dry it in the sun or by running a fan over it to kill any bacteria that might be left from your pet.


The final step is to dry the dog bed and fluff it up. You can do this by laying a towel over the top of your wet, newly-washed dog bed and using a hair dryer on low heat to help it air out. Alternatively, you could hang the dog bed in front of an open window or outside (in colder weather). It's important that when drying your pet's new toy they are supervised at all times.
