Sure you love your pet, so why are you washing it with chemical-laden commercial pet shampoo?
About as pure a shampoo as you can get, this recipe is detergent-free; in addition, the healing properties of aloe vera gel helps to sooth skin irritations.
- 2 cups water
- 2 teaspoons liquid castile soap
- 2 tablespoons aloe vera gel
- Up to 1 teaspoon vegetable glycerin or vegetable oil
Combine all ingredients in a jar. Shake to blend.
Get the pet’s coat wet, pour on the shampoo a
few tablespoons at a time, lathering as you go.
Work the shampoo in with your hands. Rinse
thoroughly. Unless you want
the pet to shake themselves dry (and get everything
in the vicinity wet at the same time!), towel
