How to use Vamoosh Pet Hair Dissolver

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.

Along with covering major sales events — from Black Friday to Amazon Prime Day — I review home must-haves so that you can buy with peace of mind. Mostly focusing on home fragrance and sleep, as well as a few vacuum cleaners, I've tested pretty much every item you can think of that you need in your home. I live on the outskirts of the city in a two-bed apartment with my husband and my pug, Doug. So I am always searching for compact alternatives and ways to save floor space. What about when I am not typing away? Well, you'll find me enjoying an iced coffee (no matter the season) and trying out the latest brunch spots the city has to offer, or booking my next holiday.
