How to clean stuffed and plush toys?

Teddy bears, stuffed and plush toys are an indispensable part of children’s life. They are nice, delicate, soft and smell nice, but basically only when they are new. Children find it difficult to part with soft toys, and they, after sitting on the shelf for a long time are home to dust, bacteria, and then they start to smell bad, not to mention dust mites growing on them. All this is certainly neither good nor safe for our children. That is why we should refresh the toys, taking care of their cleanness. And how should we do it? Here are some tips:

How to do it?

1. Remove dirt

Stuffed and plush toys without any surprises inside, such as mustard seeds, sawdust, musical boxes, can be simply washed in the washing machine. We pack toys into a pillowcase or into special zippered mesh laundry bags available on the market. Tie the pillowcase, zip the bag and wash such set at 40 degrees (including spin cycle) with 1 capsule of Perlux COLOR if toys are coloured or Perlux White if all of them are white.

Dry the toys traditionally on a string in the sunlight, on a radiator or in a tumble dryer. Tumble drying soft toys makes them softer and fluffier.

If we are not sure if we can machine wash the toys, we can gently clean them using a brush with warm water and soap or fill the sink with hot water, dissolve 1 capsule of Perlux, soak the toys and gently clean by hand. Rinse all the stuffed and plush toys thoroughly in warm water.

2. Eliminate dust mites.

We can easily eliminate dust mites. We pack dry stuffed and plush toys in plastic bags and put them in the freezer for 48 hours. In this way we will get rid of the dust mites for a long time.

After all the treatments, all stuffed animals and plush toys will be soft and smell nice again, and we will not have to worry about the safety of our children.
