Tips For Cleaning Dog Bowls Properly
1. To avoid all sorts of microbial growth, these bowls need to be cleaned in hot soapy water (appx.140 F). Try cleaning it either in a sanitising dishwasher or wear rubber gloves while cleaning with hands.
2. Choose mild, non-toxic detergents for cleaning the bowls. Check the product labels for specifications; hard detergents may rust the bowl.
3. If you wash the bowls using hands, soak the bowl weekly in a 1:50 mixture of bleach and water, for ten minutes.
4. Do not use abrasive sponges for cleaning to avoid scratches.
5. Immediately replace the bowls with scratches.
6. Do not wash the dog bowls in bath-tubs or kitchen sinks to avoid cross-contamination. If still need be, don't forget to disinfect the sink or tub after the cleaning session.
7. If the bowl develops biofilm, a slimy grey-textured layer rich in bacteria, you can also try home-made baking soda detergent, besides bleach-based one.
8. Any detergent residues may sicken your dog. Always rinse with water and dry either in sunlight or through paper towels to ensure cleanliness.
9. If you have outdoor dogs or use the same bowl for feeding multiple dogs, clean the bowl several times a day.
10. Ensure that the area around the food bowl is also clean. You can use a mixture of vinegar and water for cleaning the same.
