Hey, Pet Parents!

You love dressing up your furry friends in the chicest outfits, and at Jax & Molly's, we share that passion. Our collections keep your dogs not only looking adorable but feeling comfortable, too. But just like human fashion, dog garments need proper care to stay in pristine condition. Today, we're here to spill the secrets on how often and how best to wash your pup's Jax & Molly's outfits to keep them looking as fresh and fabulous as the day you bought them.

Knowing When to Wash

There's no one-size-fits-all answer to how often you should wash your dog's clothes, as it heavily depends on their lifestyle and how messy they get. A good rule of thumb is to wash their garments as needed. If they've rolled around in the mud or you notice an odor, it's definitely time for a wash. For less adventurous pups, washing after a few wears is a good practice.

Preserving the Garment

Cold wash is the golden rule for most clothing, and your dog's wardrobe is no exception. Cold water helps in preserving the fabric's color, shape, and integrity. It's also more environmentally friendly!

Choosing the Right Detergent

Pets have sensitive noses and skin, so when washing their clothes, it's crucial to choose unscented detergents. These detergents are less likely to irritate your dog and are good for maintaining the quality of the clothing. Remember, a happy pet equals a happy pet parent!

Drying the Garments

While it's tempting to use high heat to dry clothes quickly, a light tumble dry on low heat or air setting is ideal for your dog's outfits. This gentle approach helps prevent shrinkage and wear. Alternatively, hang drying is a fantastic way to extend the life of the garments further. It's gentle on the fabric and perfect for those sunny days.

Special Care for Vinyl Prints

Our trendy vinyl printed outfits are a hit, but they require a bit of extra care. To keep these prints in top condition, always turn the garments inside out before washing. This little trick helps protect the print from direct friction and heat, ensuring it stays vibrant and intact for a long time.

In summary, with the right care, your Jax & Molly's dog garments can stay as vibrant and cozy as the day they captured your heart. Washing as needed, using cold water and unscented detergent, opting for gentle drying methods, and taking extra care with vinyl prints will keep your pet's wardrobe in tip-top shape. 

Remember, the way we care for our pets' clothes reflects our love for them. Happy washing, and thank you for choosing Jax & Molly's to dress your cherished furry family members. Your pups deserve the best, and we're here to ensure they always strut in style and comfort!
