Yes, you can wash a dog bed at a laundromat as long as it is small enough to fit in the machine and can be washed in a washing machine. However, check the care label first to make sure it is machine washable and safe to be washed in hot water, as some dog beds may only be spot cleaned or hand washed.
Dog beds can become dirty and smelly from regular use, especially if your furry friend likes to snuggle and roll in their bed. Fortunately, you can keep your dog’s bed fresh and clean by washing it regularly. One option for washing a dog bed is to use a laundromat.
Before you head to the laundromat, check the care label on the dog bed to make sure it is machine washable. Some dog beds may only be spot cleaned or hand washed, so it is important to know how to properly care for your dog bed.
Once you have confirmed that your dog bed can be washed in a machine, gather your supplies. You will need detergent, fabric softener (if desired), and a laundry basket to transport the bed to the laundromat. If the dog bed is particularly large, you may need to use a commercial-sized washing machine, so check with the laundromat ahead of time to make sure they have a machine that will accommodate your dog bed.
Once you arrive at the laundromat, fill the machine with warm water and add the detergent. Place the dog bed in the machine and select the gentle cycle. If you are using fabric softener, add it during the rinse cycle.
After the wash cycle is complete, transfer the dog bed to a dryer and set it to a low heat setting. Be sure to dry the bed thoroughly, as any remaining moisture can lead to mold or mildew. If the dog bed is too large to fit in the dryer, you can hang it outside to air dry.
Washing your dog bed at a laundromat is a convenient way to keep it clean and fresh. Just make sure to follow the care instructions and use a gentle cycle to avoid damaging the bed. With regular washing, your dog’s bed will be a cozy and comfortable place for them to snooze and play.
