Here is a great dry doggy shampoo to get your dusty and dirty dog lean again. Trick your dog, since it brushes out and your dog won’t even realize it’s bathtime! They think they will be getting extra-special attention because they are wonderful!
You can make this up ahead of time and store in a plastic container right next to the dog door.
In a container, mix equal parts of cornmeal, bran, and/or orris root. Depending on what you have in the cupboard, you can just use one or combine two, rather than using the combination of all three. Add a split vanilla bean to the mixture (it will take 2-3 days for the mixture to take on the scent of vanilla). If you are making large batches, you can increase the number of vanilla beans to suit you and your dog.
To use: take one dusty, dirty dog either on a hard floor or outside and sprinkle the mixture over the dog’s coat. Brush the dog until the mixture is brushed through, and voila, a fresh, clean, vanilla-scented dog will appear!
