How to clean pet beds, toys and accessories with a Wagner steam cleaner

Steam Clean Pet Bed & Toys

In this DIY project, learn an easy, chemical-free way to refresh and clean your pet's accessories and toys with a Wagner steam cleaner.

Overview

If you have pets you know that there will be dirt, dust and odors! Dogs or cats, it doesn’t matter. Keeping pet accessories, beds, and toys smelling fresh can be a challenge. A good pet parent won’t want to use chemicals. That’s where the Wagner 915 On-Demand Power Steamer comes in handy!

This is not your grandma’s steamer. This DIY home steamer is pressurized and delivers steam at the push of a button!

Clean Toys

Old toys are the best! The one in the middle is from the dollar store, but has been a favorite for years.

Freshen Pet Carrier

Although many toys and accessories may be washed, this often used pet carrier was really in need of freshening. Lulu Mae loves to go bye-bye. Here she is just waiting for me to finish gathering my things, and wanting to make sure I don’t forget her!

Clean Sherpa Liner

Luckily the Sherpa insert is washable, but while I had the steamer out, I gave it a good blast.

Clean Cat Pad

Let’s not forget our feline friends. This is one of those covered heating pads for Matthew. I recommend vacuuming these items before you steam them.

When you’re finished with the Power Steamer, unplug it.

Allow unit to cool

Then wait at least 20 minutes for the unit to cool off and lose some pressure.

Release steam and pressure

CAUTION! Depress the trigger to release steam and pressure. This may take a 30 seconds or longer. When there is no air coming from the nozzle, carefully remove the fill cap (it may be hot).

All water should be removed from the steam cleaner prior to storage
