    DefaultWashing Kongs


    Well it seems like a silly question, but how do you wash your Kongs? I find that after I have frozen them with yogurt or peanut butter spread inside it is really hard to get the remnants out. I've read somewhere that it's not a good idea to put them in the dishwasher, so I end up soaking them in the sink for ages in hot water, but even after flushing more hot water through I still usually end up scraping stuff off the inside with a knife to make sure it is totally clean.

    I put mine in the dishwasher. I've had the same 3 kongs since Frodo was a pup, and they are still fine.

    I just wash mine with hot water and soap on the outside if needed. If stuff gets stuck inside, I put a finger over the small hole and fill it with hot hot hot water, almost to the top. Cover the other end with my palm and shake the crap out of it. Most of whatever is in there comes out then.

    Hmmm. I wonder where I read that you shouldn't put them in the dishwasher. ??? It sounds like most of you do and haven't found that it does any harm.... even after years. I have a couple of red and a couple of black kongs. I don't suppose color would make a difference in regards to it being okay for the dishwasher? I always feel like things are cleaner than hand washing, but I had previously read that it breaks down the rubber.

    How often do you put them through the dishwasher? Heck, if they've lasted five years with regular dishwashering that's pretty darn good.

    Lindsay....good idea about the toothbrush. Why didn't I think of that!

    Thanks guys.
