I'm going to check out those washable pee pads as well! I'll have to sneak wash them as I feel my boyfriend will protest me putting them in our washer
Sorry, I think my post was confusing, he shredded them before the tray, but then he couldn't once we started using the tray. Lol.

Lol no problem, glad it works! Do the pads lock into the tray?

I may invest in some washables, will probably save money in the long run


And I do not have a problem putting them in the wash, I was only concerned if it would leave an odor because I have washed blankets she has peed on and it left a slight odor in the wash.

Missy was very bad for tearing up the pee pads when I'd leave to go to the grocery store or a short time like that.I went to walmart and got those trays that the pee pads go in and it stopped completely!They are not expensive either.

Willow does this. Very annoying since Mylo never did. I put it in a pad holder and now it's fine!

Been there, done that with the pee pads. It was Pearl's favorite game.....running around the kitchen with the pee pad in her mouth. Hubby figured out a way to keep them in place by using some heavy steel weight thing on each corner. Worked like a charm.

Since we are on this subject...do most of you use the pee pads for your adult dogs? We switched from pee pads to newspaper (taboo, I know)...and Pearl uses the "paper" as her rest room. I had this really cool cabinet made. It looks like a regular piece of furniture. However, one side is open and has an entrance. On the bottom is a plastic frame that is removable for cleaning. On top ot the frame I place a full pee pad and then newsprint on top of that. The cabinet is in our utility room on a tile floor. I check the paper several times a day and remove the soiled paper as necessary. The pee pad stays dry and I replace it only once a week. I have a small white towel placed at the entrance so when Pearl is done it wipes her feet! So far, this system has worked wonderfully. It sure beats letting her out at 2am in snow!

Toby is indoor and outdoor trained. He uses pads at night and in between walks. But he goes outside 4 times a day during the day. I live alone and don't want to walk him alone in the dark at night.

That's a really great system.

I love my washable pads. My washer does NOT smell at all. I use a regular detergent and sometimes a little bleach. They come out fine. Drying them I use the low heat setting. NO fabric softner. I get mine at a pharmacy.

I have not bought a disposable potty pad in about 2 years.

I get my washable pads through here:
Reusable Bedpads/Underpads For Incontinence Care

or here:
Washable Bed Pads

I agree with Elaine. Use bleach and you will never smell anything (but bleach) in your washer.
^^ This.

Hey Karen, have you ever heard of Odo-Ban? A lot of clinics use it for all manner of cleaning and deodorizing. My daughter (ex vet tech) turned me on to it years ago, and I wash everything dog-related in it. It has a fresh scent (I get the original, eucalyptus kind) and I add it to the laundry as a rinse aid. I also use it to mop the floor where the dogs are, and diluted in a spray bottle to spot clean their crates and to spray on the beds that I don't wash, as a fabric deodorizer. Used appropriately, it even kills HIV virus. I buy mine in gallon jugs from Home Depot.
