This is our initial review of Nilaqua® Dog Shampoo which as per the name, cleans without water – yes No Water! Whilst you can’t beat a proper bath, this isn’t always practical on a daily basis so being able to ‘spot clean’ your dog is very convenient, especially if you are away from home.
We’ve tested two shampoos; the lovely popular Mulberry fragrance and the Natural Flea, Tick & Fly Repellent.
It’s the easiest product to use, simply pour a sufficient amount of liquid onto the area you want to clean and it instantly massages into a lather. The foam then dissipates leaving wet fur which just needs a brisk towel to dry off and remove the dirt and grease.
Our dog is a golden retriever and hates anything that smells ‘odd’ so we can vouch that both products did not bother him AT ALL so NO frantic rolling to rub it off. He generally gets a bit greasy and bedraggled around the ears so a small application of Nilaqua® provides a quick clean and fluff up.
Regarding the Natural Flea, Tick & Fly Repellent shampoo, our dog has never (touch wood) had ticks or fleas so we are unable to test its effectiveness but the list of ingredients are available on the website. See Links & Video.
As the summer has been so dry, we are looking forward to testing Nilaqua® more fully during the winter months and we will report back hopefully with before and after photos if our dog stays still long enough!
Overall though, first impression is very good.
P.S. You can also buy a coconut scented version for humans too!
