How to Clean a KONG

A quick guide into cleaning your KONG.

Even the most talented dogs may leave a bit of food at the bottom of their KONG. Don’t worry, cleaning the toys is easy:

  • Rinse with warm water and dish soap
  • If stubborn treats, like dried peanut butter, don’t rinse out, try soaking the KONG in warm water and dish soap to loosen the leftovers.
  • Use a bottle brush or old tooth brush to scrub the inside of KONG.
  • Be sure to rinse thoroughly.
  • All KONG Rubber toys are top-rack dishwasher safe.

Pro Tip: A chopstick can also be a handy tool for poking out any treats that are stuck in KONG’s opening.

It’s a good idea to keep a few extra stuffed KONGs in the freezer so you always have one on hand even if the dishwasher is running.
