Thread: Washing powder for rabbits

  1. #1

    Default Washing powder for rabbits

    ....well not for rabbits but for their bedding. Is there a particular brand people would recommend please? At the moment I am using my normal powder but in a quarter of the quantity. Thank you.

    I don't use anything different to what I use to wash my own clothes. The only difference between my wash and theirs is that their blankets get washed in a horse rug wash bag to prevent the machine getting clogged up.

    I just use what I have in - typically co-op's own but if you wanted an organic solution soap nuts might be good

    Sounds good - I do the same!

    Even a boil wash where required

    I use the same as my own. Only difference being that the conditioner isn't used, I put white vinegar in that draw when I do a bunny blanket wash.

    Doughnut doesn't have any bedding but for her vet bed in her hutch where she eats her food I just pop it in the washing machine without any power. She's scared of smells and if I get any washing out she runs away.

    I often find I've left out the washing liquid for my own washing as well The dosing ball full is on the shelf and never went into the laundry. To be honest, I never notice the difference

    I use ecover zero for the piggies washing. It has no smell which is brilliant for them and for me! I add white vinegar to the fabric softener drawer
