how do i clean my molly mutt products?

all molly mutt products are 100% washable. please FIND YOUR PRODUCT BELOW FOR MORE DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS.

care instructions
crate covers, car seat covers, couch covers, pillow packs:
↳ cold water wash — remove from the washer immediately — and hang dry only.

duvets, crate pad covers, pet blankets, stuff sacks:
↳ cold water wash, tumble dry low.

wool inserts:
↳ hand wash with a gentle detergent, leave to dry in the sun.
wool should NEVER go in the washer or dryer!

outside (indoor/outdoor) products & armor:
we recommend wiping off the product. if further cleaning is required, wash in cold water and hang dry.

TO AVOID fading or discoloring
Please avoid using detergents with the following, as these ingredients can cause premature fading:

  • optical brighteners — which are showing up in more and more detergents these days. there is some debate about the environmental and health effects of optical brighteners, but they can cause colors to fade or discolor. look for any of these names on your detergent bottle:
    • Optical Brightening Agents (OBAs)
    • Optical Whiteners
    • Fluorescent Brightening Agents
    • Fluorescent Brighteners
    • Fluorescent Optical Brighteners
    • Fluorescent Whitening Agents (FWAs)
    • Fluorescent White Dyes
    • Organic Fluorescent Dyes
  • bleach or bleach additives

TO AVOID shrinking
our products are pre-shrunk, but the extreme heat from some dryers and soaking can cause unintended shrinkage.

please follow the care instructions above. also, because we use 100% cotton canvas in nearly all of our products, avoid leaving
your items sitting in the washer (or soaking) for an extended period of time. this can cause cotton to shrink.

how durable are your products?

our products are made of durable fabrics and stand up to normal wear and tear and numerous washings. unfortunately we do not offer any chew/tear-proof guarantees on our products. because our dog bed covers are stuffed with your old stuff it may help calm/soothe your pet, which can lead to fewer incidents.

are your duvets chew-proof?

unfortunately we cannot make any chew-proof guarantees regarding our products.

are your products waterproof?

no, but... our indoor/outdoor line of duvets are water-resistant — making it easy to clean up after accidents or after a day in the great outdoors.

we also offer armor, which is a water-resistant liner designed to fit inside your molly mutt duvet. with armor, the insides of your duvet are protected from the elements.

how accurate are your product photos?

we do our very best to represent the color of our patterns as accurately as possible on our website.

however, please be aware that factors such as varying screen calibrations and the lighting in which you view your items can affect the way a pattern looks. it is also possible that patterns from different dye lots may vary slightly in tone and hue.


which countries do you ship to? which carriers do you use? etc.

please see our shipping page for all our shipping details.

i can't find my favorite pattern in the size i need!

occasionally we sell out of sizes. if a size is missing from your favorite pattern that means we cannot currently ship the item.
