Q. Can the PawPad® really go in the washing machine and dryer?
A. 100% yes. That’s the true beauty of the product. It can be washed over and over and still looks as good as it did when you first put it on the bed. Take it out of the dryer when it is slightly damp. Lay it on the bed. Smooth it out with your hand and it is ready to go. Many customers have washed it more than 100 times. Of course you can also wash your PawPad® by hand and hang it to dry if that is your preferred method.
Q. What happens if there’s a stubborn stain on the PawPad® that won't come out?
A. Although the washing instructions don't specifically recommend it, you can try to pre-treat a stubborn stain like vomit, mud, feces etc. with a product remover like Shout® or Resolve® or something more natural (see below) if your prefer to help remove the stain more easily. We cannot however guarantee that the stain will completely come out without any residue.
Vomit, Urine, Poop, Blood, Egg, Gelatin, Glue, or Other Protein-Based Stains: DO NOT WASH IN WARM WATER! This will set in the smell. Soak in cool water and then treat the stain with our Natural Stain Removing Paste
Natural Stain Remover Paste Recipe
Dawn® Dish Soap (the blue one)
Airtight Glass Jam Jar or Plastic Storage Container
RecipeWe suggest you make a small batch of the paste on an as-needed basis to ensure it is always fresh.
Mix one (1) part Dawn® with two (2) parts Peroxide in your chosen container.
Add one to two (1-2 ) tablespoons of Baking Soda, making a paste. If it’s too runny, add more Baking Soda or add more Peroxide if too thick.
Step 1: Apply a generous amount your new paste stain remover on the stain (preferably over a sink or tub). Using a toothbrush or garment brush, rub stain remover paste into the stain until it looks like it is gone or you see considerable change.
NOTE: It is best to remove any residue (vomit, bodily waste, etc.) and apply the PawPad® paste solution as soon as you discover the stain.
Step 2: Let the PawPad® sit for at least an hour (longer for really tough stains) and then proceed to wash the PawPad® as per the directions on our label sewn on the product.
Step 3: Check the PawPad® to ensure the stain is gone before putting it in the dryer. Dried on stains are harder to remove. Repeat Step 1 and 2 until the stain is gone and then dry according to our label directions sewn on the product.
Q. Can the PawPad® be used anywhere other than just the bed?
A. Of course. It can be folded for use on a favourite couch or chair that your pet likes to sleep or rest on. It can be spread out on an area rug or part of the carpet. It can be used in the back seat of the car as a blanket and protector, to wrap and existing Pet Bed, on outdoor furniture, to line a pet crate, on outdoor furniture and more. PawPad® also folds easily for travel when you and your pet(s) go to visit non-pet-friendly places where you don't want to leave any evidence that you were there.
