Does your dog ever look like this after some time out in the yard?
Oh, mine neither. Nope. Never. He’s just demonstrating.
Whatever. We all know he tries to slip into the house covered in grass on a daily basis. I have enough to worry about in the house without Oz dragging in extra gross grass for me to vacuum up. Ugh.
But wiping it off is…a challenge, to say the least. It’s like a magnet. It sticks to him. And when it does come off, it’s like it gets sucked back to his coat. It’s impossible.
Until I found this little trick.
Yep, that’s a dryer sheet. A used one. We’ve all got those babies
stuck in between the couch cushions in the trash can of our laundry room.
The idea hit me a few weeks ago and I tried it out on him. I can’t say that it was truly original, for I’m sure someone else has done it at some point or other. In fact, I’ve seen quite a few tips lately on Pinterest involving dryer sheets. These things might get added to the “Duck tape and bailing twine” that holds the world together.
Oz is clearly…enthused.
But it works like a charm. And I don’t go nuts trying to a) get the grass off of him, or b) trying to clean up all the grass once he comes inside.
Also? Free. And Recycle-ish. Doesn’t get much better than that.
