Full Answer

  1. Combine the water and vinegar

    Find a large container or spray bottle that can be used to store the shampoo. Begin by combining 2 cups of warm water with 1/2 cup of white vinegar. The water needs to be warm so that the ingredients mix well together.

  2. Add the dish soap

    Add 1/4 cup of dish soap into your water and vinegar mixture. Dish soap has been used to help clean wildlife and can be gentle on pets. If you can find lavender scented dish soap, you can add a nice fresh scent to your shampoo. Lavender may also help repel fleas as an added benefit to your homemade shampoo.

  3. Mix the ingredients thoroughly

    Close the container tightly, and shake the bottle to combine all of the ingredients. The mixture is likely to bubble up quickly, so allow the bubbles to dissipate before use. Make sure to shake the bottle until all of the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Your dog shampoo is now ready to use.
