DIY Friday - Natural Pet Shampo

Let’s face it; dogs can get pretty stinky. A dog wash and homemade shampoo is a key to natural dog grooming. It is easy to make homemade shampoos that are great for your dog’s bath and that use safe, natural ingredients.

Here is a simple recipe for a natural pet shampoo you can easily make at home.

* 2 cups of natural liquid dishwashing soap such as Method, or "gentle" dishwashing soap such as Dawn or Dove
* 2 cups of warm water
* 2 cups of apple cider vinegar
* 4 ounces of glycerine (which can be purchased at your local pharmacy store)
* 1 Recycled shampoo bottle or some other reusable container - do not use any containers that previously had any sort of chemicals in them

Pour the liquid dish washing soap into the recycled shampoo bottle first and then add all other ingredients, including the warm water. Give the bottle a quick shake to thoroughly mix all of the ingredients together.
