Can you put stuffed animals in the washing machine?
Put your washing machine on its gentlest cycle.
Use cold water.
Put your stuffed animals in a mesh laundry bag (similar to what you use to wash your delicates but in a slightly larger size.) Once your gentle cycle wash is done, remove stuffed animals from laundry bag and air dry.
Can you put stuffed animals in the dryer?
You can dry machine washable stuffed animals in the dryer using proper precautions. Leave the clean stuffed animals in the bag and put your dryer on a gentle, short cycle with a low temperature setting. The air dry setting works best if possible. Be sure to check the drying stuffed animals occasionally.
How do you clean stuffed animals?
Use the gentlest cycle available on your washing machine. Wash plush toys in cold water using a mild detergent. If disinfecting is a concern, opt for warm or hot water, and/or considering using a product like Lysol Laundry Sanitizer, which is safe on both whites and colors, unlike chlorine bleach.
How do you wash long haired stuffed animals?
Wash with a special wool-washing detergent. If possible, try to wash the doll’s clothes with a softer detergent. They are usually more delicate and will be damaged if washed in a washing machine. Toys made of silk or linen fabrics are also better for dry cleaning.
