Does your dog collar look like it's time for a new one? Dog collars are not just a fashion accessory. They are supposed to be strong and sturdy. But they might appear less than impressive when you haven't cleaned them lately. But, it is never too late to clean them. How do you ask? Let's find out!
The Key To Maintaining the BioThane® Collars is to Keep Them Clean
Cleaning your BioThane® is super easy! This easy cleaning method will keep your collar looking great. Here are some tips for cleaning your BioThane® collar:
1) Handwash using a mild soap and water solution on the collar, along with a soft brush ( a tooth brush works great!) for more stubborn dirt, and a soft cloth.
You can use any type of mild soap you prefer. For best results, wash off any soap with warm water, dry with a soft cloth.
2) If your solid brass hardware has left a mark on your BioThane® collar, a little extra scrubbing may be needed. A Magic Eraser works great for this!
2) Don't use bleach or harsh chemicals on your collar because they may discolor or fade over time!
Back to Basics
BioThane® is a unique type of polyester webbing that is durable and waterproof. These collars are designed to be more flexible than different collars, making them more comfortable for dogs to wear.
Vinegar Isn't Just for Salad Anymore
If you've ever wanted to clean your dog's collar, especially if it's a BioThane® collar, then you're in luck! Vinegar is an all-natural way to remove dirt and stains from your dog's collar. It's even safe for the environment!
The vinegar breaks down the dirt and stains, and it doesn't leave behind any residue—it just leaves everything nice and clean.
Give It a Deep Cleaning with Lemon Juice
Lemon juice is one of the most versatile cleaning agents you can use to clean your dog's BioThane® collar. It's also a natural disinfectant, which will keep your collar fresh and clean for as long as possible.
Here are some steps for giving your dog's collar a deep cleaning with lemon juice:
1) Squeeze half of a lemon into a bowl or small dish and sit for 30 minutes before using it as an all-natural cleaner on your dog's collar!
Lemon juice contains citric acid, which helps break down dirt and grime, so when you mix it with water, it makes an effective cleaning solution for BioThane® collars.
Baking Soda Makes an Incredibly Effective Cleanser
Many things can be done to make a collar clean, but using baking soda is one that is highly effective. BioThane® is made from a blend of polyester webbing and PVC and is highly resistant to water and dirt.
To keep your dog's collar clean, you should first rinse it with water and then rub some baking soda onto the collar. The baking soda is a good idea because it will help remove any stains or dirt that may have gotten onto the collar.
Once you have rinsed off the baking soda, you can use a dry cloth to remove any leftovers from the cleaning process.
Use a damp cloth to wipe off the mud, dirt, and other stains
First, rinse the collar in water, use a soft cloth to wipe off the mud, dirt, and other stains.
Next, apply some mild soap to the collar and scrub it gently with your hands until all of the dirt has been removed.
Finally, rinse the collar under warm water until all soap is removed.
