Use a Dryer Sheet For an Emergency Pet Bath

If you are expecting people over and, about 5 minutes before they arrive, you notice that your dog or cat is not the best it has ever smelled. So what do you do when there is not enough time for a bath, take a dryer sheet and rub it all over your dog or cat. It's like a waterless bath and it usually last for a couple hours at the most:)

Please don't. Household chemicals are often toxic to our pets. While nothing may happen immediately, unless your pet has a reaction or allergy, these chemical are absorbed into the bloodstream. Anything from seizures, to rashes, to breathing problems can result. There are many reasons why this is a bad idea.

Other solutions are

1) they make doggie wipes and kitty wipes

2) A little Dawn dish detergent & water in a container with some strong paper towels will do the trick. You can let them stay moist and grab them when you need them. Dawn is used in rescues of wildlife and is safe for dogs and cats.
