Most Elephant wash themselves, but when it comes time to really clean your pachyderm you should take the following steps.
- Find a big bathtub, pond or river that is at least 36″ deep and remove all alligators.
- Scatter peanuts out floating in the center of the water to entice the Elephant into the middle of the pool.
- Use a large Loofah or natural sponge to apply scented body wash to the elephant’s surface areas. Be sure to scrub behind the ears.
- Take a 5-gallon bucket of clean water and rinse the elephant from the top down. Some elephants will assist in the rinsing by using their trunk as a water hose. This will save time in the rinsing process.
- Once completely rinsed, remove the elephant from the water and air dry. Attempt to keep the elephant from rolling in the dust, as this is a nasty habit that they have.
- This can be a dangerous job, so you should really get to know the elephant before you begin the wash.
- Elephants are afraid of mice, so keep rodents out of site.
- Elephants are really big and heavy, so stay out from under them.
