You may have also experienced the difficulty of washing your pet’s bedding in the washing machine. Firstly vacuuming and lint rolling the bedding before putting it into the machine, followed by removing the clogged up hair in your washing machine drum and door after the cycle has finished – and even then THERE’S STILL HAIR EVERYWHERE – AND If there’s one thing more annoying than pet hair it’s wet pet hair!
What’s more, experts recommend that we machine wash our pet’s bedding once a week, due to the various different bugs, bacteria and fungi that could be living in their bed – in some cases there could even be salmonella, ringworm, and listeria in there. According to a OnePoll survey, the Number One reason why pet owners don’t wash their pet bedding once a week is due to the amount of hair that gets leftover in the washing machine and tumble dryer.
That’s why we were delighted to hear of a new product on the market, called Vamoosh, which dissolves pet hair in the washing machine! Vamoosh’s clever formula works by using active oxygen to break down hair protein, meaning that during the washing cycle, the pet hair is broken down into smaller pieces and ultimately dissolves and washes away. Vamoosh also eliminates deep down odours! Not that our doggies smell at all…
The good news is that Vamoosh leaves no chemical residue and doesn’t release any harmful chemicals into the environment. It is also a Peta-accredited cruelty-free brand and therefore isn’t tested on animals, which just makes it even better!
To use Vamoosh, you simply put 1 or 2 sachets straight into the drum of your washing machine, add your pet bedding and usual detergent and run your longest hottest washing cycle (between 85-95 degrees) and then dry as normal.
It’s a win-win situation: hair-free pet bedding and a hygienically clean washing machine – all for a minimum amount of effort!
