DIY Dog Dry Shampoo




Introduction: DIY Dog Dry Shampoo

About: I love DIY Electronics

Everybody loves animals well, almost all do. Being a pet owner can be a complete package of fun, love, care and responsibility. Nothing can beat a cozy hug with your pet, or just those cute little things animals do.

It is important to take care of these wonderful beings just like we take care of ourselves, but some pet products are so pricey and your pet may be allergic to the chemicals present in these products.

Hence lets the better option is to make them yourself. Today I'll be making Dry shampoo for dogs because I avoid bathing my dog often during the winters, but this costs her coat to become oily and stinky, so I just dust some dry shampoo on her coat.

Lets make!

Step 1: Things You Need

  • Baking Soda
  • Corn starch
  • Container with lid
  • Essential Oil (which is safe to use on your pet)
  • And thats all that you need!

Step 2: Combining

  1. Combine baking soda and cornflour of the ratio 1:1.
  2. Run it through a sieve to obtain thorough mixing.
  3. Baking soda acts as a good odor absorbent, and it also absorbs excess oil from your pet's coat.

Step 3: The Container

  1. After combining the dry contents, now its time to add the essential oil.
  2. I'm using lavender oil as its mild to pet's and leaves a pleasant fragrance on your pets coat. Mix the oil well into the dry mix.
  3. Transfer the dry shampoo into a container, make some holes on the container lid for easy application.

Now you can use on your pet whenever needed.

    Essential oils are extremely potent and there are many different kinds. Some are cheaper than others and for your dog you want to make sure that you’re getting a higher quality essential oil. You want want to research the quality of the essential oil that you’re putting on your dog, make sure the type of oil is proper for your dog, I couldn't imagine using any thing more than 2 drops in 2 cups of the 1:1 ratio baking soda and corn starch mix. PLEASE do research on things like this when it comes to your pet, they can't tell you how they feel unless it's REALLY BAD or REALLY GOOD. Be careful not to get anything in the eyes, face or nose.
