Step-by-Step Guide to Making Dog-Friendly Dry Shampoo
What You’ll Need:
- Bran and/or Orris Root
- Vanilla Bean (or more for larger batches)
- A Plastic Container for Storage
Mixing It Up:
- Choose Your Base: In your container, mix equal parts of cornmeal, bran, and orris root. Feel free to use just one or a combination based on what’s available in your pantry.
- Add a Dash of Vanilla: Split a vanilla bean and add it to your mixture. This gives the shampoo a delightful scent. Allow 2-3 days for the mixture to absorb the vanilla essence fully. If you’re making a bigger batch, adjust the number of vanilla beans accordingly.
- Store It Right: Keep your homemade dry shampoo in a plastic container near the dog door for easy access.
How to Use Your Homemade Dry Shampoo
- Prep Your Pup: Find a suitable spot, preferably on a hard floor or outdoors, to avoid any mess inside the house.
- Sprinkle and Brush: Gently sprinkle the dry shampoo mixture over your dog’s coat. Then, with a brush, work through their fur until the mixture is evenly distributed.
- Reveal the Freshness: Keep brushing until all the dry shampoo is out of their fur. What you’ll have now is a clean, vanilla-scented, happy dog!
