Satin Pillow Cases For Crate Cushions
I bought some satin pillow cases that zip closed at Sally's Beauty Supply http://www.sallybeauty.com/pillowcas...efault,pd.html
for approx. $9.00. (I got them in the beige/gold color - not white LOL) I've been putting Beau and Daisy's crate cushions in them. I started doing this because their crate cushions are covered with a "furry" type material and I thought satin might be cooler for the summer. This is the crate cushion we are using: http://www.petsuppliesplus.com/Produ...r_furhaven.htm
These are about 2" thick and very comfy - but warm for the summer - and I think the satin is cooler for Daisy and Beau.
Daisy's cottony coat is not matting up as much
and I think the satin pillow case is the reason.
With all the rain, Daisy and Beau are getting dirtier between baths (every 10 day or so....). I like being able to wash the pillow cases so they have clean bedding after their baths. It's sure a lot easier than washing the cushions and waiting for them to dry!
Thought I'd share this idea in case others want to give it a try.
