How to clean & maintain your vinyl dog mat (only 2 steps)

Our premium vinyl dog mats are so easy to clean and care for.

I’m Terrye Saliba, the owner of Doggie Digs & Cat Naps in Missouri, and this is a customer of mine (who is also a friend) Cristy Nolte of Little Rock, Arkansas. We’re going to show you how to clean and condition this mat.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • To clean: Dawn dish soap, or a similar mild dish soap.
  • To condition: Pledge furniture spray, or a similar product.

Cleaning the vinyl

  1. Dilute the dish soap in water.
  2. Dip a sponge or a wad of paper towels.
  3. Simply wipe away the dirt and grime.

Cristy: This mat has been sitting out in the rain and the dirt, and it hasn’t been cleaned
in weeks.

Me: How long have you had this Doggie Digs & Cat Naps vinyl dog mat?

Cristy: Two years, and it sits outside all the time. After I clean it, you can see the difference. It looks just like it did the day I bought it. It’s so easy to clean, so easy to take care of it. I can leave it out in the rain, the snow; sleet. It gets mud from the dog’s paws. It stands up to wear really really well.

Conditioning the vinyl

After wiping the grime away with the dish soap, allow the mat to dry.

Next we’re going to condition the vinyl dog mat. Simply spray pledge on the vinyl, and rub it in with a clean cloth.

Doing this frequently will keep it looking good for as long as 10, 20, or 30 years.

How easy is that? Typical dog beds get stinky and are hard to clean. But with my Doggie Digs & Cat Naps vinyl mat, you just wipe it down.

High-end materials make the difference

Me: These mats are made of premium Naugahyde vinyl, which is the top vinyl material that you can get. The vinyl is made in the USA, and the mats are manufactured in the USA.

Cristy: And the dogs really love them.

Me: So try them out. They also make a great gift for Christmas time or whatever.

How to dry it, if it gets really wet

You don’t need to use a lot of water to clean this vinyl dog mat, but if it gets rain or melted snow in it, you can simply air dry it in just a few hours.

Just lay it over the back of a chair, with the zipper facing down (leave it zipped shut). On a warm day, the water will drain out on its own in an hour or two. Then you can put it back on the ground for your pet to enjoy.

But the cool thing is the inside of the mat. Cristy’s dog mat has been out here for a couple of years now, and as you can see it’s completely water and mildew resistant. You can run a hose in here and fill it up, and let it sit for a week, and it will never ever mold.
