How to Make Natural Dog Shampoo with Apple Cider Vinegar
Round Up Ingredients
Locate your organic apple cider vinegar.This is what will get your pet’s coat and skin dirt/debris free. Your dog may not like the smell but you will be balancing out the cider with other ingredients so it shouldn’t be too overpowering.
- Apple cider vinegar is also a natural flea repellent so it should help to block and kill any remaining fleas.
Pick up a bottle of natural, liquid dish washing soap.You could also use baby shampoo if you prefer--either will make suds and add that extra cleaning element to the bath.
Purchase some glycerin to keep your furry baby’s skin healthy and smooth.Glycerin will also soothe any hotspots or areas of dander build up.
Find an empty shampoo bottle to hold pup’s potion.Actually any clean, empty bottle will do the trick, but be sure you select something that is plastic or non breakable. Doggy bath times can be a little rambunctious so the last thing you need is to be fighting a wild bathing dog while navigating the shampoo bottle over his coat.
Make Doggy Shampoo
Measure 1 cup of liquid dish soap (or baby shampoo) and 1 cup of apple cider vinegar.Pour into your waiting empty bottle and swirl to combine.
Add 1 cup of warm water (you can use distilled but tap works just fine) and 2 oz.of glycerin. You want the water to be warm but not hot so that it doesn’t break down the other ingredient’s compounds.
Tighten bottle lid and shake vigorously.You may see bubbles and froth as the shampoo combines. Gently remove the lid and allow the bubbles to settle down before use.
QuestionWhy add water?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou add water so that it lasts longer and is easier to distribute throughout the dog's fur. If you use a concentrate, you'll likely use more than you need in order to lather the entire dog, and then it'll going to take longer to wash it out properly.Thanks!
QuestionDoes it have to be natural dish soap?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIt should be -- that's what's safest for your dog. Dish soap with harmful chemicals can ruin your dog's pelt or irritate their skin.Thanks!
QuestionWhat do you mean by natural dish soap?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerThey mean dish soap that does not contain a lot of chemical additives. If you just google "natural dish soap" you'll see a list of brands. Regular dish soap could cause irritation.Thanks!
