A 1999 study in the compared the levels of allergens in dog dander before and after a five-minute bath with an unnamed “proprietary shampoo”.

Bathe your dog as needed to reduce pet dander and other allergens she may bring into the house, but be aware that bathing removes natural oils from a dog's coat, and too-frequent bathing may cause skin problems. Consult your veterinarian about how frequently you can routinely bathe your buddy. Use a dog shampoo specifically designed to reduce dander, and follow directions on the label. Be certain to remove all traces of shampoo after lathering. After bathing, towel-dry your dog and apply a lotion designed to add moisture back to a dog's skin.

I am allergic to my dog. I've got filters and I've been bathing her once a week and vacuuming with a hepa filter and keeping the house as clean as possible. This has helped pretty well I think. Only time will tell if it will continue to get better. It's been pretty good for the past 3 or 4 days though.

I've been reading a lot about these dander reducing shampoos, sprays and wipes on the market. I'm sure there is a cheap way to make a version of these products yourself. Does anyone know of a way?
