Care Instructions

To ensure your Life of Riley bed lasts many years, please follow these instructions for care, our products are handmade from natural products so require extra gentle care.

 Product Washing Instructions
Wool Filled Dog Mattress

Just like a futon, as the bed is natural It is important to air the bed regularly in the sunshine and to flip it as often as possible. Wool naturally draws the moisture away from your dog's body and regulates its temperature. So it needs air to circulate around it to dry it out.

The removable corduroy cover can be washed on a gentle machine wash on a cool cycle. Hang inside out to dry. Do not dry in the dryer.

Do not machine wash the inner and do not not remove the wool from the white inner lining (think of this like your own pillow) The inner can be gently spot cleaned or sponged if it gets marked or stained or spray with natures miracle. Make sure to dry outside properly before putting the cover back on.

We recommend that you purchase one of our waterproof mattress protectors if you are using the bed for a puppy crate training or have an incontinent dog.

Snuggle Sausages

These can be sponged or hand washed in cool water but do not agitate. You can use a very gentle wash on a wool cycle with a low spin (low spin is very important or the wool will move) Lay flat to completely dry in the shade.

Crate Bumpers  Machine washable on a gentle cycle.

Woollen Blankets

Gentle wash if necessary on a cool wool cycle or hand wash. It is better not to wash them too often - Brushing wool is the best way to clean it.
