If your pet's crate pad or carrier lining is too dingy to make do, there's a super easy way to fix it . . . that doesn't include tons of money or heavy-duty detergent. Instead of seeking a replacement at the pet store, hit up your local fabric store instead and ask for "sheepskin." The synthetic material's fairly easy to come by (even online) — purchase it by the yard, trim to fit, and store the excess for next time. Snuggle time . . . saved.
