I have seen this question asked before but I cant seem to find it. What do you use with the baby shampoo to get all the dirt off? I think I remember someone saying coconut oil... Is this correct? Did I answer my own question :Wink:

Yea I use Coconut Oil also.
It works pretty well.
I also use Burts Bees Lotion before I wash Wrinkles because she has so much white on her.

You can get it at WalMart or I'm sure other places--in the vitamin section. It's solid, but you don't have to warm it up--it's easier to apply when it's kinda solid--it starts to melt in your hand and gets very easy to move around when it touches their skin. It leaves mine a little too greasy, so I follow up with a dawn or baby wash bath--we rub the coconut oil on, rub it around really well to loosen the dirt, then we wash it off. Dirt comes right off. Five minutes later we're dirty again....LOL Makes me feel like such a slob--like a I must have a filthy house. But if there's a fleck of dirt anywhere they will find it and roll around in it.

Since we're on the subject of filthy, greasy cats... I have a slightly embarrassing question/confession and I'm wondering if it's just me...

I have a collection of t-shirts and tank tops that I can only wear around the house and to sleep in because the cats sleep on top of me at night and my clothes have got permanent grease stains from the cats on them. :LOL:

Am I all alone here?? :Whistle:

My boys I have now don't do that, but Senor Buster DelGato (died last spring) would leave greasy "make up" stains on my tshirts! For some reason it always looked liked he had been wearing foundation....

I never wear nice shirts when holding George for the same reason. He gets them REALLY DIRTY. I bought Sun stain remover and I put two scoops in every load and ALL the stains come out.
