I am going to start including some reviews of certain items on my blog. There are a couple reasons for this. One is that I have received some items at a discount, or even free, in exchange for providing an honest and unbiased review. I promise not to tell you it's a good product unless I really like it! The other reason is that there are some products I really, really like for dogs in general and/or for service dogs in particular. I think these reviews can be helpful for people.
So, my first review here is of these SoFetch Natural Cleansing Wipes. They are like baby wipes for doggies, but not only for use on their bottoms.
If you read this blog much at all, you know how Isaac loves to play in the woods, swim in creeks, roll in
stink stuff, and just generally get dirty. Since Isaac is a service
dog, I need him to be clean, to look and smell nice, when he accompanies
me into public places. Sometimes I need to run errands after we've
gone for a walk or played outside and I don't always have time to go
home and bathe him first. I've been trying to clean him up with a spray
bottle of water and a towel, but thought these wipes would come in
really handy instead.
Please note, if he is too dirty or smells bad,
he does not accompany me to public places. I make other arrangements. And I generally plan my day so that I don't take him places where he is likely to get really dirty before we have to go someplace else where he should be clean and presentable. But, dirt happens.
today we went to one of our favorite parks and he ran around and swam
in a pond and rolled in something that smelled quite bad. Afterward, I
used a couple of these wipes to clean him up. They are soft and pretty
big and worked really well. Isaac not only looked clean but smelled
The environment is important to me and I do not
generally use disposable paper products. At home, for instance, I don't use any disposable paper products. I use
cloth napkins and cloth rags instead of paper towels. I use cloth wipes instead of toilet paper. I use cloth menstrual pads. I wouldn't use
disposable wipes for my dog all the time, because it's just not
ecologically friendly or sustainable.
However, there are times that
these wipes will really make my life easier and I feel OK about using
them occasionally. And I like that the box these come in is small and
cardboard, so It can be recycled (inside the box, the wipes are in a
small plastic bag). And I like the fact that these wipes use natural
ingredients, so they are good for my dog as well as for the environment.
