Do you need a dog toy basket? Dog toy storage will help your pup find his favorite pet toys and help you keep the living room organized.
No matter how many small dogs or large animals you have in your home, you still need an easy-access storage solution to keep things tidy on the homefront.
There's no shortage of pet toy storage on Amazon. Here are some of my favorites that will also enhance all types of home decor.
Should You Wash Plush Dog Toys
Yes. Hills writes, "When cleaning plush toys, be sure to either use a pet-safe detergent or avoid using detergent entirely. You can also wash soft toys by hand using the half-water, half-vinegar solution. Afterward, either air-dry the toys or pop them into the dryer (but don't use dryer sheets)."
As long as your fabric toys are washing machine safe, you should be able to wash them with dog-safe detergent. However, if you don't want to risk puppy toys getting wear and tear in the washer, go the hand wash route.
Also, air-drying outside is a great option. The sun will dry them quickly and will help get that puppy smell out. Some aggressive chewers will leave their fabric toys soaked with slobber! Yuck. Just like us, dogs carry around bacteria, so be sure to get those toys clean whenever you can.

Best Dog Toy Baskets for Your Pooch
Let's all just admit it, there is nothing more frustrating than buying a storage container only to realize it isn't big enough to house your needs. A blanket basket toppled over with baby toys, or pet supplies just looks messy. The whole point of a storage basket is to organize things in a tidy manner.
I love this cotton rope storage basket because it is HUGE. Even if you aren't using it as a dog toy box, the rope handles make it easy to carry as a laundry basket. The neutral hue will fit into almost every room in your home. Sold!

Bolga baskets. My favorite way to carry pretty much everything. If you like easy accessibility, you'll adore these open baskets.

Beware: you'll want more than one.

This collapsible $15 canvas paw print toy bin will store your dog or cat toys with ease. Deep enough for your large dog to stick his head into, it's still small enough that it won't overwhelm your living room.
