Wash Instructions for Big Shrimpy Pet Beds

Original, Nest, Bogo and Basic bed COVERS and INNER LINERS

    • Unzip the cover to remove the filled inner liner.
    • Unzip filled inner liner and remove the SmartFill.
    • The outer cover and empty inner liner may be washed in your home washing machine or at a laundromat.
    • Wash all parts in warm water using a gentle soap that will not irritate your pet’s coat.
    • Tumble dry on low heat. Do not over-dry.

Nest bed note – inside the bolster inner liner, you may find that the SmartFill® is encased in a white fabric tube.  Pull out this tube, find the open end, and remove the SmartFill.  After cleaning, you may place the SmartFill directly into the bolster inner liner.

Original, Nest, Bogo and Basic bed SMARTFILL

We recommend that SmartFill be washed and dried using our mesh Wash & Dry Bag.  A single Wash & Dry Bag will fit in most standard home washers and dryers, or may be used to clean SmartFill at a laundromat.  These zippered mesh bags are sized to comfortably hold the SmartFill from a size small Original or Nest bed.  SmartFill from larger beds should be washed in multiple loads for best results.

  1. For best results, the Wash & Dry Bag should be loosely filled with SmartFill, not tightly packed, so that dirt, dander, and odors can easily rinse through and out of the fiber.
  2. Wash in warm water using a gentle soap that will not irritate your pet’s coat.
  3. Tumble dry on low heat.  Do not over-dry.

If you purchased your bed between 2001 and 2007, it probably contains fleece scraps.  The outer cover and empty inner liner should be washed as described above.  The fleece scraps should be washed and dried separately from the outer cover and empty inner liner,  using our Wash & Dry Bag as described for SmartFill above.

Catalinas, Landing Pads, Drifts, and Dens
