    The top bed from the barrel I bought them for Christmas is in need of a wash. The label says to wash at 30 degrees but I like to wash pet bedding on a hot wash. Will it be ok on a hotter wash? I know others have this barrel - how do you wash the top bed?

    I haven't yet had to wash mine, but I wouldn't put it in a hot wash personally. Instead do it at 30 but on as long a wash at that temp as your machine will do. I think the longest mine does is over 2 hours.

    I have three Paradise barrels and I have found the beds can vary in their response to washing. I don't think I would do more than a gentle, short wash until you know which sort you have. Even the one of mine that looked awful when it came out of the machine plumped up to its normal shape when it was dry.

    Ok, I'll try it on 30 then and see how it comes out. Kito sleeps in the top bed most nights so it's looking decidedly grubby.

    Could you use a laundry sanitiser , ( Dettol do one that you add to the conditioner drawer) That's what I use on my dog's bedding.
