I thought this was interesting...a tip to make your Maltese coat shiny. I found this on a website:

"1/2 cup Vinegar to a quart of water sprayed onto the coat of a dog works like a vinegar hair rinse. Their coats gleam! An extremely economical alternative to expensive show shine products."

I am thinking of the vinegar smell....

And, wondering about rinsing etc. too. I know if you use vinegar on your windows/mirrors etc. It is supposed to work well. It also takes out smells...if you put it in a bowl in a room...
Def. waiting for Nichole's trial...LOL

How about using lemon juice instead of vinegar? Isn't it about the same chemical wise? I know it destroys odors. I always use a little lemon juice and a few drops of melaeuca oil in 2 cups of water as a final rinse when I bathe Frosty. It takes the last of the shampoo out and leaves an acid mantel that the skin needs. Even doggie shampoo is somewhat alkaline for their skin. Melaeuca (Tree Tea oil) is suppose to help with bacteria and has a wonderful clean smell.

I don't think I want to put vinegar in my pups hair!
Why not Carissa??
When I was a little girl my mother use to rinse our hair in vinegar water to cut the soap that was left after a shampoo.
We also used it in the washer to take the soap scum out of the clothes.
AND...now get this...when we raised Chows, we were told to put a little vinegar in their water because "it cuts down on the tearing and staining in their eyes"...ta da
It won't hurt your little guy...honest.
Especially that ratio.

I know my grandmother used vinegar for lots of things! She taught me to clean the grime off of the stove with a mixture of vinegar and baking soda I still do this today). I did a search and found this link.... if you go to the bottom you will find links for different categories such as pets.

Thanks Nichole and thanks to Toby for being out "guinea malt"


Did the odor seem to bother Toby at all? I was going to give Tiki his bath tonight but have used you as an excuse to way until after I read your post on Monday.
