On first use, Vamoosh suggest using two packets – especially if what you are cleaning has ingrained hair, or if it is a larger load. Pop these sachets into your washing machine drawer and set your machine to its hottest and longest cycle. Once finished, you can dry as normal...

Otherwise, after the first use, you can just use one sachet of this stuff in your machine's drawer – along with your usual detergent – and select a long, hot cycle between 85-95°C. It's that simple!

How often should I clean my pet's bed?

According to the experts, your pets bed, towels, blankets, jumpers – etc – should be cleaned once every one to two weeks. This is because they can harbour a number of germs, and they will eventually start to smell – which will rub off on your pet's coat if you're not careful.
