|When washing a kitty, you want to rinse, rinse, rinse, and rinse some more. Like Harvey said, if you don't get all the shampoo residue out, it acts like a dirt magnet. I highly recommend, you DO NOT use Dawn full strengh, it really should be diluted, or it drys out their fur and skin, and it will take you just that more longer, to rinse it out.
You also want to dilute the white vinegar, 1 cup vinegar to 1 gallon water. I pour the vinegar in a gallon of water, let it sit until the final rinse, then pour some in a plastic cup, and pour over the kitty, all of it, the whole gallon, and make sure you don't forget the tummy, and between the back legs when rinsing.
Then ya gotta rinse, rinse, rinse and rinse some more. Rinsing is the key for show kitties, mol, Bump is 3 hrs, start to finish. He just sits there.
Show kitties, as Harvey and Kyande can tell you, have several steps and a "formula".
