Proper care of your Otis & Claude Pet Grooming Gloves will ensure their longevity and effectiveness.
- Cleaning: After each grooming session, rinse the gloves thoroughly with water to remove any fur, dirt, or debris. You can also use a mild soap or pet-safe shampoo to clean the gloves if necessary. Gently rub the bristles or nodules to remove any buildup. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners that could damage the gloves.
- Drying: Allow the gloves to air dry completely before storing them. Avoid exposing them to direct sunlight or high heat, as this can cause the materials to degrade or warp.
- Storage: Store your grooming gloves in a clean, dry, and well-ventilated area. You can hang them using the built-in loops or keep them in a clean bag or container to protect them from dust and moisture.
- Maintenance: Regularly inspect the gloves for any signs of wear and tear. If you notice any loose or damaged bristles or nodules, consider replacing the gloves to maintain their effectiveness. It's also a good idea to check the gloves for any trapped fur or debris that may have accumulated during storage.
- Avoid Excessive Force: When using the gloves, avoid applying excessive force or pressure on your pet's coat. The gentle motion of petting and massaging should be sufficient to remove loose fur and debris without causing discomfort.
- Pet-Specific Gloves: If you have multiple pets, it's recommended to use separate grooming gloves for each pet to prevent the transfer of any potential allergens or parasites.
