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
- Fragrance additives
- Petroleum distillates
- Nonylphenol Ethoxylates or NPE
- Isopropyl alcohol
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
