So, Gusto's best friend ever spends the summer coated in some all natural/essential oil tick repellent stuff. Which means that after a hike and wrestle session, Gusto is coated as well. He came home Saturday and got a bath because he was filthy; I noticed all evening that he still smelled like the spray. He hiked again today, and he didn't get so dirty (never would have bothered bathing him) except he stunk from the spray. I used Dawn, which actually did get the oil/smell off him - but I obviously don't want to be bathing him constantly.

Are there any really good non-bath options for getting an oil based substance off? My friend says it wears off in a day or two, but she has big dogs and I have Gusto, who sleeps under the covers and on my lap and it is so icky.

I like Self Rinse Plus. We use it to clean feet and hocks on our white dogs the morning of a dog show. There are other brands but most are too foamy and cost a lot more. It's a liquid but dries pretty fast. I usually spray it on and rub with a towel.

I thought I had commented on this, apparently not.

I'm not very familiar with dry shampoos, but I do know they sell these hypoallergenic wipes at Petsmart - that may be something to look in to. I'm not sure how well they work at cleaning, but my mom uses them for her Dachshund to help her with her allergies in the summer.
