How To Clean Soft Baby Toys

Kids just love soft toys to play with but they can be  difficult to keep clean and this can pose moms with a problem.

What do you do when your 18  month old keeps chewing on the  same old teddy bears ear and she’s been trailing this around  the floor with her everywhere?

Firstly, check to see whether the plush toy is machine  washable or not.

My Pillow Pets toys, those adorable plush toys that are toys  by day and convert into a pillow at night are machine  washable. This makes them an ideal toy because you know  keeping these clean  will be easy.

However, not all soft toys can be washed in the machine. We would definitely say avoid putting toys that have squeakers  or rattles inside them, do not put these into a machine.

Otherwise, put these toys into a pillow case or a machine  washing bag and pop them into the washing machine on a gentle  cycle.  You’ll find that they do come out nice and clean and  smelling beautiful too! We find that this is one of the best ways to clean plush baby toys.

What to Do If Your Toys have Squeakers / Rattles Inside Them?

In this case, we would advise against putting soft toys with  squeakers and rattles inside them into a washing machine in  case the water ruins the squeakers and therefore ruins the  cuddly toy for your child.

In this case, we advise surface cleaning with a soft cloth  that has been dipped into some warm soapy water.  Gently rub  the cuddly toy all over with your soft cloth.  Once you have  gently washed all over, you need to scrub down with a cloth  that is only dipped into water so that you can also remove the  soap effectively from your cuddly toy.

How To Dry Your Stuffed Toys Once They Have Been Washed

The best way to dry your newly washed plush toys, whether they  have been machine washed or hand cleaned, is to hang them up  on the washing line. Let them dry naturally.

Unless it says that you can dry your plush toys in the dryer,  we would advise against this because plush toys can sometimes  come out with lots of fluff and they might not look the way  they did before you put them into the dryer!
