How do You Wash Dog Toys

Washing Dog Toys with Baking Soda

Your dog loves his toys. But the chances of him falling in love with a dog’s toys are that he will hate them. 


Whether he has a plush toy in his mouth, dragging his toy through the mud, or shouting slogans at his toggle toy, your dog must find a way to make sure every toy is good and dirty. But you don’t want them to be that way. So how do you move your dog’s toys from “good and dirty” to “good and clean”? 


So are you ready for a closer look: 


Use The Right Material

The most important thing to keep in mind when deciding how to wash dog toys? Make sure you’re using the right content. 


The cleaners you use to clean your bathroom or kitchen counter are not working to clean your dog’s toys. Many cleaning products contain chemicals, dyes, and fragrances that can be toxic to dogs. So, when you’re cleaning up your child’s toy store, skip Clorox and use natural, non-toxic ingredients like baking soda or white vinegar. 


Now that you know what materials to use to clean your dog’s toys, let’s talk about how to clean them. 


Please put them in the washing machine with baking soda 

If you want to clean your dog’s soft, plush toys, throw them in the washing machine. Not only will a cycle run by the washing machine get rid of the dirt or dullness on your dog’s toys, but it will also remove the dust particles hidden in the contamination. 


Sprinkle each toy with a little baking soda and put them in the washing machine. Leave the soap on and add a tablespoon or two of white vinegar during the rinse cycle. 


Once the toys are nice and clean, squeeze out any extra water from each toy. Allow the toy air to dry before returning your puppy.

Soak Your Toys

The Dishwasher 

If your dog has plastic or rubber toys, the fastest and easiest way to wash them is to put them in the dishwasher! A bicycle will give your dog’s toys a deeper and fuller clean – zero cleanings needed. 



Make sure to place all of your dog’s toys in the top of the dishwasher as well as anything else you want to clean (such as your dog’s cups). Replace dishwashing detergent with white vinegar and ride a normal bicycle. 


Soak Your Toys 

 If you do not have access to a dishwasher or washing machine, soak the dog’s toys in a solution equal to white vinegar and water. Fill the bucket with vinegar/water solution or immerse. Sprinkle a little baking soda on each toy and let it soak in the solution. After it dries, squeeze out any excess water and let the air dry. 

DIY Dog Toy Cleaners 

If neither dishwasher nor washing machine methods work for you, you can whip up a DIY dog toy cleaner and soak your pet’s toys in the sink or tub. Mix equal parts of water with white vinegar.  


Score extra dirty toys with a splash of baking soda, or throw toys in the sink with the solution. For quick cleaning, put a mixture of vinegar and water in a spray bottle and wipe the toys with a cloth. 

Soft Dog Toy 

In addition to being dirty, soft toys can also collect dust particles. Collect all your pet’s soft, plush items to get through the washing machine quickly.  


Use natural laundry detergent or just sprinkle toys with baking soda and add some red vinegar during the rinse cycle. For square toys, you may have to squeeze a little water after the cycle is over, although once it dries, its looting will return!  


It is best to do this on a sunny day so that the toys can dry naturally. However, you can toss them in the dryer in a low or air condition.
