Mine wear an occasional bandana or t-shirt and that's about it - easy to throw in w/ the wash - if yours is always wearing clothes and they get dirty/hairy, probably the laundromat is a good idea. Do you have any photos of your dog dressed up?

Dog beds go in the washing machine here but separate (from our clothes etc)

do you mean the blankets? I was them separately in our washing machine and wipe down both washer and dryer to get our any left over dog hair.

Do you mean actual clothes? If you have enough clothes to not be able to wash them in the sink by hand then you have more problems than can be addressed here.

Your mom needs to get over it. Remind her that her underwear isn't a bouquet of flowers.

If anything, run a cleaning cyle (if your machine has one) after washing your dog's clothes. Or at least wipe it out of excess hair.

I wash my dog's blankets in the washing machine. Afterwards, I run the sanitary drum clean cycle.

maybe if you did the entire job yourself and promise to wipe down both dryer and washer she wouldn't mind. while you are at it wash the rest of the clothes as well.....

Does your machine have a clean/sanitize cycle? Point that out to your mom.

My front loader fills with hair thanks to the government's new water saving standards for washing machines. It doesn't disappear with the rinse water like my top loader did or any older front loaders It's disgusting. I can't wipe it all out either. I have to run the sanitize/drum clean cycle to remove the hair. The damn thing cost me $1,200.
