What is another way and cheaper way of cleaning a dog bed then taking it to the launder mat? It costs $8.00 to wash a dog bed like Skitters new dog bed I got for her at the launder mat it does need to be washed but the launder mat is spendy and time consuming as for my washer it is too small for the dog bed but the bed needs to be washed really bad so is there another way I can wash it?

Instead of having to wash the whole bed, try putting a cover over it like a blanket or sheet. You could even sew it around the bed like a slip cover if she likes to nest and move the blanket around. The easiest way would be to sew button snaps on, then just snap it in place. This way you'll only have to wash the cover regularly.

A cover is a great idea and probably the only way at this point to keep from having to wash the entire bed. Be sure to get a bed with a zip-off cover the next time you have to replace the current bed. That makes it so much easier to clean them.
