Product Care

As all of our products are handmade, we recommend cleaning our products with a cold hand wash and hang dry in the shade. Once dry you can use a gentle warm iron as the bandanas may become wrinkled after washing and wear. 

You can also place the bandanas in a washing machine on a gentle machine wash. Or for extra protection place the bandanas in a washing bag, which is designed to protect delicate clothing items in the washing machine.

Do Not Dry Clean.

Do Not Tumble Dry.

Do Not Bleach.

Here at Black Pepper Dogwear I have quality tested our bandanas by taking my Kelpie pup, Pepper to the beach, wearing our bandanas and letting her roll on the sand, run around the beach, play with other dogs, jump through waves and swim in the ocean. Doing what every doggo loves to do!

I have then placed the bandanas in with my regular clothes for a wash in a front loader washing machine, used the normal daily wash setting, which is 30°c water temperature. When finished I hung the bandanas out on the clothes line to drip dry. Once dry I gave them an iron to smooth out and remove the wrinkles. They kept their size, shape and colour during the washing process so I believe they will be ok to be washed in a front loader washing machine, but you can use a washing bag for extra protection.

Please note that I have found top loading washing machines to be more rough on clothes, so I would suggest using a delicate setting if you have a top loader.

Note: To extend the lifetime of your product we recommend removing the bandana before your pooch swims in the pool or ocean and rolls in mud puddles, which we know our furry friends love to do. Also hang dry the bandana out of direct sunlight, to avoid colour fade, as the Australian sun can be harsh.
