With the right advice and a clear step-by-step approach, you can give your pet’s bed a deep clean in no time at all!
How to wash a vibrant life dog bed?
Remove the cover
Unzip and remove the cover from your vibrant life dog bed. If it doesn’t come off easily, give it a tug!
Machine wash in cold water with cold water
Wash your vibrant life dog bed in the washing machine on a delicate cycle using cold water only.
Do not use bleach or fabric softener as they can damage the quality of your bed’s materials and cause them to break down prematurely over time.
Also, avoid using high heat or dryer when washing your vibrant life dog bed because this can cause shrinkage which will make it smaller than normal size upon drying out again after being washed in hot temperatures which could lead to tears forming along edges where stitches are located on the top layer (but only if you have chosen this option).
If needed, add vinegar.
How often do dogs’ beds need to be washed?
It’s important to wash your dog’s bedding at least once a week. This helps to keep your pet’s bed clean and prevents allergies and fleas from developing in the mattress.
If you live in or near an area where ticks are common, this may be even more important for you and your pup.
Washing your dog’s bedding also helps prevent them from developing other health issues like dry skin, which could lead to scratching or biting at their own bodies as a result.

How to clean a waterproof dog bed?
Cleaning your dog’s bed is important, but it can be confusing when you don’t know what materials are in the bed.
Luckily, we’ve got you covered!
Here’s how to clean a waterproof dog bed:
Remove the removable cover from your pet’s bed and toss it in the washing machine on cold water with mild detergent.
Set the cycle to delicate laundry and use cold water if possible. If your washer doesn’t have a “delicate” setting, wash it by hand with mild detergent and cold water instead.
After washing, let the cover air dry completely before putting it back on your pet’s bed.
You can also put the cover in the dryer on low heat for 10 minutes or so if you need an extra boost of freshness.
We know that some of these tips may seem daunting, especially for those who have never cleaned dog beds before.
However, with regular cleaning and maintenance, your pet’s bed will remain in pristine condition for years to come!
