If you're new to organic shampoo, you will notice some important differences right away! Organic shampoo has a much thinner consistency because it does not contain synthetic thickeners. This makes it pour very quickly from the bottle. It's also concentrated which means you don't need as much to give your dog a bath!
Both of these characteristics can catch you off guard. You'll get used to it in no time and be happy you've reduced your dog's exposure to toxic chemicals by using our safe and non-toxic certified organic shampoo!
To make the adjustment easier for you, 4-Legger offers Foamer Bottles which have a special pump that infuses air into the liquid shampoo as it is pumped from the bottle. The result is a luxurious foam which closely resembles shaving cream! You will love the experience and find the transition to organic shampoo is a bit easier.
Note: Not recommended for use with the Cedar/Peppermint shampoo formulation which is thicker and will not flow through the air infuser on the foamer bottle unless slightly diluted with water.
Carefully pour our certified organic shampoo into the foamer bottle until it is 3/4 full. Avoid over-filling in order to keep some air in the bottle which is necessary for the shampoo to be properly infused.
Make sure the small tab on the pump is rotated to fit the notch on the bottle. If these aren't lined up correctly, you will not be able to depress the pump and you will feel silly when you figure it out!
Prime the pump by depressing it a few times until the shampoo begins to dispense through the nozzle. Now, round up the pups and head to the bath!
Hint: Many of our customers tell us they use it as their safe & non-toxic hand soap at all of their sinks!
Maintenance: Over time the foamer bottles can get a build up of shampoo at the spout. If you feel resistance or shampoo does not come through the opening, you need to clean the pump. We recommend using a sharp edge knife to clean it out if there is visible shampoo in the opening. Occasionally flushing the pump with hot water will also extend the life and functionality of your foamer bottle. If you use your foamer bottle infrequently flushing the pump after use will remove shampoo in the pump mechanism which will begin to solidify if not flushed. You can also run it through the top rack of your dishwasher!
I purchased 4-legger shampoo then decided (after reading about the bottle) to add in the bottle. I'm glad I did because it did make a difference and a little goes a looong way.
You’re only getting half the uses out of your shampoo without this foamer! It uses less shampoo, and makes it easier to spread since there aren’t additives in the shampoo itself. Worth the $$.
Makes such a difference and I think an item that is needed to make the best use of the shampoo.
My husband bathes our dog and used to use the shampoo bottle up so fast because he had to use so much to get the lather. So didn’t want me to buy the shampoo anymore.
Now, with the foamer, it lathers much better and he can use less shampoo so we all love it!
This seems to be a very high quality dispenser. It really does a great job of portioning the shampoo. Highly recommend.
