To look after your Wags Doggy Bag (it's pretty straight forward) - DO the following:
- with the zip closed, shake the sack to loosen any dirt caught in the fabric
- return all the bits and pieces caught in the sack to the outdoors, where they belong, i.e. shake, shake, shake
- hang sack to dry - I like the loop at the bottom of the zip for this
I've found that after rainy walks I don't have to wash the bag that often, maybe after 5 uses? Will depend on your dog's coat and your preferences of course.
If you've been getting into some heavy duty fun, then you'll need to wash your Wags Doggy Bag:
- following the steps above, get rid of as much debris as you can - it helps if you have the type of dog that can hide small sticks in its thick coat, to remove those before you use the bag, don't want to be poking holes in the fabric, your pup or the washer.
- wash separately or with similar fabrics on a warm setting
- avoid bleach or fabric softeners
- tumble dry low or hang to dry
Care labels have been sewn into the bags near the bottom of the zip, the fabric is 100% cotton certified to the Oeko-Tex Standard 100. The certification process tests for harmful substances used during all stages of production (raw materials, intermediate, and end product). This includes testing for illegal substances, legally regulated substances, known harmful (but not legally regulated) chemicals, and other parameters for health care. It provides manufacturers with a uniform benchmark when evaluating harmful substances potentially used in the production process. Environmentally conscious manufacturers produce fabrics that are tested for safety and skin-friendly.
