Worlds Cleanest Pet Bed: Wash ‘n Zip

I am so pleased to announce our newest contributor to our blog. Our fur baby, Mr. Ernest T. Bass.  Even though he is our pet, he really has some great ideas on how to pamper your pet.  Enjoy!

*   *   *   *

I am so glad my mom, well she really isn’t my mom because I am adopted (another story later), has finally decided to let me be part of her blogging community.  I have “suggested” so many different ideas for pets and she would just tell me, “maybe later”.  Well, maybe later has finally come and I can’t wait to tell you about a product that has been a really sore subject in my forever home.

The Dog Bed

I can’t tell you how many different beds I have had since I moved here about 7 years ago. And I have had all kinds. Fluffy ones, soft ones, square ones, round ones, you name it, I’ve slept on it. I wouldn’t have to worry about having my own bed, but my mom and dad won’t allow me on the furniture or their bed. I don’t understand this when I see on Facebook all the time all the boxers who get to sleep on their human’s beds!

I finally took matters in my own hands and started looking for a new and better way to invent the pet bed. While watching local tv one day, I saw an advertisement about the worlds cleanest pet bed. Really? I was so amazed at this new product that I sent the company an email about how I would love to try out this “so-called” worlds greatest pet bed and they were so kind to send me one.

So let me introduce to you a product, which I consider GENIUS in my opinion, as the best pet bed on the market.

Worlds Cleanest Pet Bed: Wash'n Zip

The Wash ‘n Zip pet bed was invented by a couple, Stan & Jennifer Pelz, when they became so frustrated with the stinky, smelly pet beds they had to deal with in their home.  They had the same problem as my mom and dad do with my beds. After a while, they just stink! You can wash the cover, but the material inside can’t be washed or has to be thrown away. And I heard mom say that the stuffing costs more than the whole bed does sometimes. She got to where she would buy me the cheapest bed on the market and frankly, I think I’m worth much more than that.

Worlds Cleanest Pet Bed: Wash'n Zip

I just love this bed. It’s a great size, color matches the decor of the room, the top fluffy padding feels so comfy and warm on my aging bones and when I need to drag it to a different part of the room, it’s easy to do. Yes, I like to rearrange my furniture too.


I really love it being in the back of the car to lay on when mom and dad take me on day trips. You just unzip the bed and lay it out where ever you need it. And for all those lucky dogs out there who are allowed on the furniture, just spread it out over the couch and enjoy or you can also use it in your pet’s crate.

Here is the best part of all.  When the bed starts showing signs of your fur baby’s special smells or he has an accident, just unzip the bed completely and throw it in the washer. Mom has already washed mine a couple of times and she just loves the results.  She just folds it back up, zips up the sides and its ready for another nap. I love my bed when it comes right out of the dryer. All warm and smells so fresh and clean.

Just watch this video for more information

One thing my mom really loves about this bed is that it will save us money. And that’s important because that means they can spend more money on more important things I need. Like treats, toys, and treats.

You can find the bed online at Wash ‘n Zip or if you live in Central Florida there are some stores in the area which carry this product.  Mr. Stan was so kind to also offer a discount for anyone who bought one of these beds online. Just use the coupon code MYLIFE at checkout for 10% off.  I will say this, I did some checking on the prices of pet beds and there is no comparison. Especially if you have to keep buying pet beds over and over and the Wash ‘n Zip will last you for years. What a frugal way to shop for a really fine quality made bed.

Be kind to your pet and give them a bed they can enjoy for years and years. They will love you for it.


Nap time!

Friends Fur-ever,

Ernest T. Bass

The Life of Ernest T. Bass


  1. Well Ernest, I’m so glad you finally got your say. And I’m so glad you’re happy with your new bed. I bet you can just snore away all night on that. Between you and me, your mom forgot to mention you in her comment on my site, but that’s ok. We got to meet anyway! I hope to hear more from you soon.

    I Create Purty Thangs

    1. HI Julie, Ernest tells me that all the time. I don’t include him in a lot of things. He likes to tell “stories” a lot. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by

  2. Ernest is so adorable! That last picture of him is so incredibly cute! This dog bed seems awesome. I’ve never had a dog but my cat loves his bed and it’s still fairly new so I haven’t noticed any smells yet, but it’s nice to see that there’s a great solution for pet beds for that problem!

  3. Tammy – awesome post – I loved seeing this from the dogs point of view – adorable. I don’t have a dog but if I did I would buy one of these and will probably send my friends over here to read this post. Thanks for posting – I also have some oils for odor – purification is a great one and if you check out my pinterest site there are oils for dogs as well. Blessings to you and thanks for sharing – Essential Oil Lover – Tina

    1. Thanks Tina. I LOVE essential oils. Lavender seems to be my favorite. It reminds me of days gone by and my great grandmother.

  4. I love being able to wash the dog’s bed. It’s a requirement that each one I buy have a removable cover. This, however, takes it to a whole new level of clean! Thanks for sharing.

    1. I had the same thought Bren, but the inside fluffy stuff you couldn’t wash and was so expensive to replace. So I am so thrilled I came up on this bed and solves so many problems with pet beds.

  5. I actually love the idea of being able to open it up. My dogs are lucky enough to get on the furniture but sometimes the extra hair as a result of shedding can get a little un-nerving so this might actually work to solve that problem again.

  6. My dog loves his bed and we are constantly washing it. However, it isn’t so easy to wash. We make it work. This product makes it look simple. Thanks for sharing

  7. I love him he is so adorable and my husband and son asked if he can come visit. I was excited to learn about the bed and will check into it for the three I have as they need a new bed.

  8. Dear Ernest T Bass,
    First things first, you are adorable! I loved hearing your thoughts on the dog bed, and how it unzips for better car rides as well as how simple it is to use and clean. I hope you enjoy it a very long time!

  9. That guest blogger Ernest is the best! I really love the product and how versatile it is. I will be looking into it as my two need new beds that don’t stink.

  10. This is so cute…your dog is adorable:) Thanks for linking up to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party. I have pinned your post to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Board.

  11. How funny, I love ya Mr Ernest you’re adorable! This bed is GENIUS! We got our first dog in November and got her a bed. After a while I realized the whole thing needed to be washed. I put the whole thing in the wash and voila so I thought! During the rinse the water hit the bed and out of the washer it came. About half the water sprayed out before I caught it! UGH. So I made a smaller bed for our fur baby so I could wash it. Too bad I didn’t know about these beds before! Glad to know!!!! Thanks!

  12. I really enjoyed looking over your blog you have designed it well. I like your pictures they are really pinnable and your new contributor isn’t bad either. This pet bed looks really easy to clean and if I had a dog I would be getting me one now.

    1. Thanks so much for the compliment! I really appreciate it and really appreciate you taking time to post a comment. Boxers are great dogs to have.

  13. Very cool pet bed idea. We have the same problem throwing away dog beds still in good shape but smelling horrible. Will definitely check out Wash’n’Zip bed.

  14. What an awesome idea for a pet bed! We have a dog and five cats so we go through beds like crazy around here. I’ve found that even ones where you can wash the whole thing, they come out weird afterward. Or not all the fur will come off. I might need to give this one a try!

  15. Love it. Even though it’s not ideal at all, our dogs bed is our bed. But if he would use a dog bed this one would be awesome. Thanks for sharing.

  16. What an awesome idea for a pet bed! We go through so many beds for our dog, not only for the smelly aspect but also because he chews them to shreds. I have resorted to using folded-up old comforters as beds. I can wash them in my machine no problem, but I don’t like that I have to keep folding them up for the dog to use.

    Is the Wash n’ Zip durable enough for pets who like to chew on everything?

  17. I have worked with senior citizens, with dogs, and have smelled how bad their doggy beds could get. So this is a wash and reusable bed for dogs, hmm. It would definitely save consumers money and people who travel with their dogs all the time, would find this helpful, I believe. As for myself, I have two cats and I’m always looking for covers that I can use to protect my couch from their cat hair. It can be trying at times, but when you love your animals you do what you have to do. Good Luck with your product.

  18. Well, Mr. Ernest T. Bass…I must say that you’ve convinced me, Tukker the Wonder Dog, to get one of these. My mom (I’m adopted, well rescued) too is always pampering me with the latest and greatest. Now that I’ve gotten older, I prefer the comfier beds. And since it’s about to be rainy season in Florida, my feet always get dirty and having a washable bed is a must.

    Thanks for the tip. Let’s meet at the hydrant some day!

  19. Ernest is such a handsome man! I love the idea of this pet bed. I have 3 dogs and they have routinely taken over the blankets that we have on our couch that are typically reserved for human use. It is annoying because they very quickly get that hideous doggy smell. I will definitely have to check this out!

  20. Oh my Ernest is ADORABLE! I do not have a pet, but I would certainly recommend this to all of my other friends with fur babies. Great looking site too, I love how streamlined and clean it feels!

  21. This is such an awesome product. I would love one but my cats are jerks with dog beds…My mom’s dog would love one though. I’m definitely passing this one on to her. Great product review! Also Super Cute Doggy!!

    1. I had a few of those like you have, but the stuffing would get so nasty smelling also. Ernest is a larger dog, so they seem to mess up more. I’ve talked to people who have little dogs and don’t seem to have a bad smelling dog bed problem as much.

  22. What an amazingly smart invention! I NEED this like NOW! Our pet beds also stink and we just throw them away! Pinning so I can buy this someday!

  23. This is clever! My husband is anti-pet for the mean time, but when we have a larger home with green space I’ll be begging for a dog and cat. Allergies plague my husband, so this idea might be just what I need to win the right to have a dog!

  24. Wow that is amazing. I also have a larger dog and that dog bed just isn’t my favorite thing in the world. Yes I try to keep a couple of blankets on it that I can wash, but still. Thank you for sharing this one!


  25. This looks like an interesting product. I’ll have to remember it when I’m thinking of gifts to give my friends with pets. Thanks Mr. Bass for sharing your lovely bed with us all 😉

  26. Great bed solution! My dogs end up sleeping on our recycled comforters, this looks like a better solution! Cute story written from the perspective of your dog.

  27. I love Ernest’s review! This dog bed looks like a great product for someone with indoor dogs. We don’t have any pets right now, I would love to get a dog someday, but right now I don’t have the time that a puppy would need. 🙂

  28. My dog has eaten more beds than I care to remember. She is a Golden Retriever, and at almost 12, she is still a very active chewer. I gave up with beds, and just use a towel. This is a really great review, though, tell Ernest thanks!

  29. This post comes at the perfect time! This morning I was saying how nasty our dog bed is smelling yet I just cleaned it not too long ago.. The inner foam can’t be cleaned so we’re stuck with just washing the outer cover and we are about due for yet another new bed. I actually just called my husband saying we have to buy this asap lol Thanks for sharing!

  30. Wow! This is sooo what I need for my fur-kids! With a boxer and an English Bulldog, I know all about smelly pet beds! And I hate getting rid of them because once they’re worn in, they love them so much and then it takes them forever to get used to a new one! I’m definitely going to have to look in to these! Thanks for sharing!

  31. I need this for my dog!! This is a great product. My dog gets stinky, and so does her bed. We wash it, but its just not as clean as it could be – I will have to check this out further. thanks for sharing!

  32. So cute – Ernest is adorable. I like this bed; seems easy to clean and comfortable. I cheat with my pet bed; I bought a crib mattress and I cover it with a crib sheet (found one that actually matches my microfiber sofas). That way, I can just take the sheet off and throw it in the washer, and wipe the mattress down with Lysol. 🙂

  33. Ernest is so cute! What a lucky puppy with that great pet bed. What a great idea to make it washable. There is nothing worse than wet dog smell.

    1. I love that I can wash the whole bed now and no more smell. I love my Ernest, but he can be a “stinker” sometimes.

  34. This has got to be the most cutest post I’ve read!!!!! Ernest T. Bass is a great addition being a contributor! I’m happy he is enjoying his nice soft bed and doesn’t have to worry about the smell. Thanks for linking up at #ProductReviewParty!

    1. My Ernest is such a wonderful dog. I”m so glad we decided to rescue this time and not go the puppy route as in the past.
