Molly Mutt Dog Bed Freshener

Posted on October 21, 2010 by Allie

Argo loves his blanket.  He’s taken custody of an old comforter and he loves it more than any dog bed he’s ever had.  Sometimes, he’ll share it with Stella, but it is unmistakably his.  And while he seems to take great pleasure in lying on his blanket when it’s fresh out of the wash, he mopes like crazy when I take it away to wash it.  I try to wash it often, but it is an entire load of laundry in and of itself and I don’t always have time.

Molly Mutt sent me a sample of their Dog Bed Freshener and I couldn’t be happier with how well it works.  It keeps Argo’s blanket smelling fresh between washings, with minimal effort.  The freshener uses enzymes to fight odors, so it’s not just masking one smell with another.  It has a light soapy scent that freshens the whole room when I use it on Argo’s blanket.

The ingredients are:

water/agua, caprylyl/capryl glucoside, sodium lauryl sulfoacetate, glycerin, sodium coco-sulfate, mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf oil, vanilla planifolia fruit oil, cinnamomum zeylanicum (cinnamon) leaf oil, xanthan gum, guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, gluconolactone, sodium benzoate

How do you keep your pet’s bedding smelling fresh?


  1. I’ve had a Molly Mutt duvet on my list to purchase for the doggies for a year now. I’ll be sure to add the freshener when I do purchase it!

    When the dogs aren’t sleeping on an old couch in my office or a chair in the bedroom they’re allowed to be in, they sleep on an old blanket, which I usually wash every three weeks or so. This would be much easier.

  2. I throw old beach towels over the dog beds and they get washed about once a month. The flannel sheet over the comforter on my bed gets washed weekly, with the sheets. And one bed has cedar shavings in it, to not only repel pests but help with the smell. It also helps that I have a beagle who does not have that doggy smell. In fact, she smells pretty sweet despite rare bathing!

  3. Blitzkrieg has a Molly Mutt bed in my bedroom and he loves it. He has a few beds in other rooms that I can’t wash. I may be visiting Molly Mutt again soon!

  4. Luckily Romeo doesn’t leave much odor. I wash his blankets every couple of months or so at the laundromat, And he sleeps in my bed. So one can argue that I am the one stinking up the bedding!

  5. I’m glad you recommend the Molly Mutt refresher. We just switched our dogs to Buffalo Blue Fish & Sweet Potato formula; great food – but OMG the smell of fish lingers, especially in this one blanket my Maddie uses. She likes to take food out of her bowl and eats it on her blanket. I agree that it isn’t very economical to wash blankets all the time, so I’m happy to see this Molly Mutt product. Thank you!

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
