Keeping your pets bedding clean and smelling fresh will not only benefit you and your pooch, it’ll also prolong the life of your pet’s well loved bed. Here at Lords and Labradors, we know being able to wash your pet’s bedding is important, as our furry friends can get their beds messy from muddy paw prints, to treats/chews being hidden inside of their bed! If you have any questions about your Lords and Labradors bedding, please do contact us and we’re happy to answer any queries you may have.
Our bedding comes in two main collections, our essentials collection which includes our Plush, Herdwick and Twill ranges, and our Core Collection which consists of our signature ranges. Each needs washing in a different way so first check which collection your pet’s bedding is from.
How To Clean Your Lords & Labradors Essentials Pet Bedding
Our Essentials Plush & Twill beds are machine washable, the rest of our Essentials collection is spot wash only. Below we’ve listed our top tips for cleaning your L&L Essentials beds.
Cleaning Your Essentials Plush Crate Cushion, Bumpers & Sofa Toppers Sleepeze Cushions
Our Essentials Plush cushions, sofa toppers & bumpers, as well as our Sleepeze cushions, are spot wash only. You will want to start by hoovering off any loose hair and dirt, make sure to get in any crevices. Next, using a clean cloth, warm water and a mild pet-safe detergent, gently scrub any areas which need cleaning, afterwards with a clean cloth wipe away any suds and leave to air dry. We recommend doing a test patch on a discreet area of the bed before cleaning the whole bed to check that your detergent isn’t going to cause any discolouration.
Cleaning Your Essentials Plush Crate Cover
Our Plush crate covers are machine washable. To wash simply turn the cover inside out and wash on a gentle cycle at 20º. The fabric will air dry really quickly, simply place is somewhere flat and not in direct sunlight - you can even lay it over your dog’s crate so that it keeps it shape! Make sure to allow your cover to air dry naturally, not over a radiator or in a tumble dryer as they are more likely to shrink!
Cleaning Your Essentials Herdwick Bed & Sleepeze
Start by hoovering any loose hairs or dirt from the bed, some of the collection have removable inner cushions we recommend taking this out to clean separately, so you can properly get into all the corners of the bed. Next you’ll want to get some warm water mixed with a mild pet safe detergent, with a clean cloth gently scrub your pet’s bed focusing on any dirty areas. Then wipe away any suds and leave to air dry. Again we recommend trialling the detergent in a discreet spot to check it doesn’t discolour your pet’s bed.
How To Wash Your Essentials Plush & Twill Beds
Our Plush & Twill beds are all machine washable. To keep them looking fresh we recommend starting by hoovering away any loose hairs or dirt, this will stop the hair from clogging up in your washing machine. Our twill crate mats and orthopaedic beds have removable covers, pop the cover inside out and zipped up in your washing machine. If your bed has an inner cushion, you can take this out and wash it separately to the outer, making it easier to fit in the washing machine. We recommend washing our beds on a gentle cycle at 20º in the washing machine, leave to air dry and never tumble dry. Your bed may just need a good shake after to spread out the filling and then it will be ready for your pet to use again.
How To Clean Your L&L Core Collection Pet Bedding
Our core collection is all machine washable, our pet experts have listed their top tips below to keep them looking fresh for as long as possible!
How To Wash Your L&L Crate Cover
Taking care of your L&L crate cover means it’ll keep it looking fresh for longer! To wash, just turn the cover inside out and wash on a 20º, gentle cycle in the washing machine. The fabric will just need to air dry, by placing it somewhere flat and not in direct sunlight - you could even lay it over the crate so it dries in its shape. Once dry, you can cool-iron/steam inside out to remove any unsightly creases. Do not machine wash oilcloth covers.
How To Wash Your L&L Crate Cushion and Crate Bumpers
Washing your L&L core collection crate cushions and bumpers is easy, simply unzip the covers, and remove the waterproof liner from the cushion too. You can wipe clean the waterproof liner and air out the cushion whilst you pop the cushion cover/crate bumper cover into the washing machine at 20º on a gentle cycle - don’t forget to turn the covers inside out before doing so! Allow the covers to air dry, and do not tumble dry.
How To Wash Your L&L Beds
With the right care your Lords & Labradors bed will continue to look beautiful for years!
We recommend washing your bed on a 20º gentle machine wash to maintain colour. Our fabric is super fast drying and often will come out of the spin almost dry! It’ll just need a bit of airing, a good shake and it will be ready to be used again.
How To Wash Your L&L Blankets
Your Lords & Labradors blanket can be popped into the washing machine on a gentle cycle at 20º - the blankets are quick to dry once laid flat, do not lay over a hot radiator and do not tumble dry.
How To Wash Your L&L Sofa Toppers
Our sofa toppers are easy to wash - you don’t need to put the whole topper in the wash - only the cover. Simply remove the cover by unzipping the back, slide the inner out, turn the cover inside out and pop into a gentle wash at 20º. Once washed, lay flat if you can to air dry - this shouldn’t take too long and then you can return your beautiful sofa topper to your comfortable sofa!
