    Default Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse

    Hi all ... I want to start trying an apple cider vinegar rinse on Seamus during his bath. I am hoping it makes him smell better in between baths. Could somebody please tell me how much vinegar I should use and mix with water? Thanks!

    The proportion that we use is 1 cup ACV to 1 gallon of water. There may be different proportions that others use but for us it leaves Harlea's coat all nice and soft when she dries out and smelling nice too boot.

    Do I rinse it off after I put it on him or do I leave it on him and let him dry off?

    I do not see why not. We use the filtered ACV so it doesn't have all the floaty stuff in it.

    We do it after rinsing off all of the shampoo as it helps to remove all of the residue. We let it soak in for 5 to 10 minutes and then dry her off. Others may do another warm water rinse and then dry off.

    By us both are sold side by side at Wally World so we just grab the filtered stuff. Not sure about stores in your area though.

    I've not heard of this before. When you end up doing it, would you kindly share how it worked best for you? That would be awesome!
