I use a Baking Soda rinse on almost all of the dogs that I groom.
If you are new to my blog, I wrote a post on using Baking Soda Rinse a few years ago.
You can check out the link and see what I am talking about.
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I had a dog in the tub that was large and full of shampoo, I wanted to cut down the rinse time so I poured the Baking Soda mix all over the dog (while the shampoo was still on) to cut through the shampoo and make rinsing faster.
I do this every once in awhile when I have a dog with a very thick coat that will take forever to rinse.
This time I did something a little different.
I usually just pour the baking soda rinse all over the dog and then start to rinse off the shampoo, this time I was rubbing the baking soda rinse into the soapy coat as I was pouring it all over the dog.
I instantly felt a difference in the shampoo and in the dogs coat.
It is a little hard to describe.
The baking soda was thinning out the shampoo, but at the same time the combination of the baking soda and shampoo was making the coat feel even cleaner and softer.
I wish that I could describe it better.
The coat rinsed out quickly and felt squeaky clean.
The best part was how the coat felt after I finished drying it.
Very light, fluffy, and super clean.
I thought that maybe it was just that dogs coat, but after using the baking soda rinse the same way on other dogs, I was pleased to see the same results.
See what you think. :)
