Do you know how to wash plush toy?
Most plush toys can and should be washed. Clean plush toys weekly if your child sleeps with them. Otherwise, it's fine to clean them as needed when they look dirty or give off a smell. Wash your child's plush toys immediately after he or she has been sick. If your child has allergies or asthma, it’s important to clean their plush toys regularly to get rid of dust or other irritants. And, of course, you should wash them any time they start to look grimy or smell musty.
If you’ve determined it’s safe to launder your child’s toy in the machine, put it in a mesh laundry bag or zippered pillowcase to protect it from friction. (You can also put it into an old stocking or plain pillowcase, then tie a knot at the top.) Use a separate bag for each toy. Wash on the delicate cycle using cold water and your usual detergent. Run a second rinse to get all the suds out, then remove it from the mesh bag.
If you don’t have a washing machine, you can still get your child’s plush toys clean in the sink. Hand-washing is also the best method to clean large plush toys that can’t fit in your machine.
1. Fill a bucket or your sink with cold water. Use enough water to submerge the toys.
2. Add Laundry Detergent. Pour a capful of laundry detergent into your bucket or sink.
3. Agitate for 2-3 minutes. Gently squeeze each toy to saturate it with water and detergent. Don't scrub too hard, as older plush toys might have loose strings or fabric.
4. Drain. Drain or dump the used water.
5. Rinse. Refill your bucket or sink with clean, cold water or run the plush toys under cold running water. Squeeze each one gently to rinse the detergent, but avoid wringing.
6. Lay the plush toys flat to dry. You can roll each one in a clean, dry towel first to help remove moisture. You can also use a hairdryer to speed up the drying process.
