How To Wash Dog Bed with Stuffing

Keeping your dog’s bed clean is often overlooked but very important in order to ensure their hygiene and safety. It is because unclean beds can lead to health issues.

And given the fact that dogs are very adventurous in nature, they tend to catch up on a lot of dirt, dust, bacteria, and other such things on their fur that eventually get transferred onto their beds. 

Hence, you must always make sure that your dog’s bed is squeaky clean at all times. Therefore, here is your guide on cleaning a dog bed with stuffing. 

In this guide, we have got you three different methods to do. 

Let us discuss all of them in brief.

How To Wash Dog Bed with Stuffing Method 1: Remove The Debris and Spot Wash

In case you feel that your dog’s bed can be washed in the washing machine or you can wash it with your hands completely, you can clean it well without submerging it in the water.

Here are the things that you will need to clean the bed:

A lint roller
Vacuum cleaner
A firm brush for loose dirt
Clean cloths or disposable kitchen towels
Fresh clean warm water
A pet-safe spot stain remover product or mild detergent

Things to watch out for:

Ensure that there are no weak spots or frays that you might end up damaging if you apply some pressure while cleaning or something that might end up being tangled in the cleaner.
Do a patch test of a cleaning product before completely cleaning it.

Process of Cleaning a Dog Bed with Stuffing:

Step 2:

When the bigger particles have been removed by the lint roller, use the vacuum cleaner and start removing the finer particles present on it. We recommend using narrow heads to get into the corners and areas that are difficult to reach.

Step 3:

Now is the time to tackle the dirty patches and stains that are present on the dog bed. You will need to take a dry brush and move it on the bed to remove any soil and then wet the stain by pouring a mix of water and cleaning liquid.

Step 4:

Let the cleaning product soak for 2 to 3 minutes, and blot the stain using a clean cloth or a kitchen towel. When you apply some pressure against the firm surface, you will see that the cloth absorbs most of the stains.

Step 5:

Keep repeating the stains until the stains are gone.

Step 6:

Let the dog bed dry under the sun or the fan

How To Wash Dog Bed with Stuffing? Method 2: Wash Inner and Outer Separately

In case your dog’s bed has a zipper or a velcro hook or something, there is a possibility that you can remove the inner stuffing. The stuffing is often covered with a light fabric lining which can be washed safely.

If this is the case, check the cover or the tag to see if it can be washed or not. If it can be washed, put it on a gentle/ wool wash at the lowest temperature in your machine.

And if the stuffing is loose, look at how dirty it is. If only the outer part is dirty, take the stuffing out and simply wash it up. 

And if the inner stuffing is dirty too, stuff all of it in a soft cotton pillow case and wash it up.

  • Vacuum cleaner
  • A washing machine with a gentle cycle – or handwash facilities

  • Make sure there are no frays or something in the outer part of the inner lining.

Process of Cleaning a Dog Bed with Stuffing:

Step 1:

Using a lint roller and vacuum, remove however much pet hair and debris as could reasonably be expected from the entire bed.

Step 2:

Undo the zipper or fasten on the dog bed cover. Cautiously remove the inner stuffing.

Step 3:

Check both the outer and the inner part for a tag with washing directions.

Step 4:

Expecting the directions for the inner and outer parts are something very similar, place both in the washer and set the machine in like manner.

Step 5:

Add your pet-safe clothing detergent, then start the wash.

When you get done, get them out of the machine and adhere to drying directions, if any. In the event that it does not dry outside, in the sun – or safely on a radiator.

Step 6:

At the point when the two parts of the bed are dry, stuff the inward stuffing up and put it again into the bed.
