I know this sounds crazy but my chihuahuas have a bed and it is easier to cover it in a pillow case and then take the pillow case off and wash it every other day then it is to wash the whole bed. I wash all the beds once a week. but i change the pillow cases a few time a week. keeps the hair in check.
You know, I never thought of pillowcases for the pet beds. I wash the fleece blankets every couple of days and the entire bed coverings every week.....I have 6 beds around the house and using pillow cases, especially flannel is a great idea. Doubt Dollarama would have flannel, but even if I have to pay more, I am sure flannel cases will out last in the long run. I already have a couple that came with a flannel sheet set that I don't use because I prefer percale for cases, even with flannel sheets.
Thanks for the idea Maneater.
I don't use the stainless bowls on a regular basis because I find them a bit too small for my giant sized kitties, but have a couple for feeding the strays outside. Less chance of damage and clean alot better.
