Cleaning Plush Toys that can’t go in the washing machine
Stuffed toys get very grungy when they are carried everywhere and dropped practically everywhere too. Some stuffed toys come with musical insertions and circuits due to which they can’t be thoroughly washed. Start by creating a mixture of mild detergent (i.e your usual washing detergent) and warm water. Dip a washcloth in soapy water and gently wipe the outer surface of the plush. Rinse by rubbing it with a damp cloth repeatedly to get the soap out. Allow the toy to dry in air and in order to get the smell of detergent out, sprinkle some baking soda on it. A small amount of vinegar in water can also make the odour go away. This is also great to get the kids involved with!
Top tip – Use white coloured cloths so the colour doesn’t transfer.
