Tens of thousands of pet owners LOVE Lennypads, but sometimes there are frequently asked questions.
1. How many times can you wash a Lennypad?
Lennypads are designed with 4 layers of commercial grade textiles. Lennypads are tested at approximately 300 washes before seeing any significant wear.
2. Can you use bleach on a Lennypad?
Yes, Lennypads are bleach safe. Bleach is best for taking out coloration and odor from the pad. Other solutions that are commonly used during the washing process are Oxi-Clean, Detergent, Vinegar, or Borax. We do not suggest that you use Bleach on designer Lennypads.
3. Can you dry Lennypads in a drier?
Yes, but we suggest on a low heat setting. High heat will cause shrinkage and potentially damage the vinyl, leak-proof barrier. Hang or air-drying is the best practice if possible.
4. Which side goes up?
Always place the quilted side up. This is the side that the pet urinates on and the side with the soaker layer.
5. How long can I leave a Lennypad out for?
Every pet situation is unique, but you will find that Lennnypads are much more absorbent than a disposable pad and dry quicker. The average customer leaves a pad out for 24-48 hours before placing in a hamper or preparing for washing. You can extend the longevity before washing with Lennyshield – the odor eliminator extender spray.
