Frequently Asked Questions about Repelz-It™:   

Is Repelz-It™ Nanoprotection pet safe?

Repelz-It™ Nanoprotection is PFOA and PFOS free. PFOA and PFOS are known carcinogens found in other stay-clean fabric finishes. 


Are Repelz-It™ products waterproof?

Repelz-It™ products are only water- resistant, not waterproof. Repelz-It™ Nanoprotection resists most “doggie” messes, those of which can be easily rinsed off with water. Dirt, stains and pet odors don’t adhere to the surface of Repelz-It™ fabrics, keeping them looking and smelling cleaner, longer.


How do Repelz-It™ fabrics help with odor control?

Dirt and other tough messes resist sticking to the fabric, which keeps Repelz-It™ pet products smelling clean. Frequently, pet odor is caused by oil from the dog’s coat getting on the fabric, then bacteria attacks it. Repelz-It™ Nanoprotection fabrics have a very high oil repellency and resists “sticky” messes. Our bacteriostatic reduces the growth and spread of odor causing bacteria, which is one of the leading causes of pet odors.


Can I wash Repelz-It™ pet products?

Dog Gone Smart fabrics using Repelz-It™ can be machine washed and dried. Because these fabrics don’t get as dirty and smelly as regular fabrics, you
 don’t have to wash these pet products as often. Use a small amount of regular detergent and be sure not to use bleach, fabric softeners or dryer sheets, as these will ruin the Repelz-It™ finish. Our bed liners and fill cannot be washed,
 but should be shaken out and aired.


How long does Repelz-It™ finish remain functional?

Repelz-It™ Technology is impregnated into the fabric, meaning it won’t come off or wear away with use. Repelz-It™ Nanoprotection can remain functional up to 50 washing cycles. Fabrics with Repelz-It™ retain their soft, natural feel and are 100% breathable.
