Are YOUR Stuffed Animals DIRTY? — 8 Comments

  1. I’m glad I found this information – I posted earlier and suggested our stuffed critters were bagged for storage…

    Well – in cleaning out the spare bedroom, I found 2.5 drawers full in an older dresser. So – I’ll be able to clean them accurately before preparing for storage!!

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I’ve tried to dry cleaned my teddies. Big Mistake!

    The previously soft fur were now ‘dry’ and has a synthetic feeling.

    Don’t do it!

  3. Thanks for the info, laidbare. It’s also helpful to know what not to do to clean our plushy friends.

  4. I have two big boxes full of Ty Beanies. The are in nice closed bags, and have remained clean.

    I also handed down a teddy bear to my daughter that I had when I was little (30 odd years) My poor bear has been through the wash, and put through the ‘ringer’ Thank you for your timely information, I would hate to see my bear go through any more trama

  5. Good post. My kids have stuffed animals they drag around and this info is useful!!

  6. “Grown-ups” having stuffed animals out “for show”? …I’m 34 and still sleep with a stuffed animal. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yup, my animals could ALL use a good cleaning (thanks so much for the tips and such!), but I still love ‘e, even though they are in need.

    Great blog, by the way. ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. Thanks for the great comments, folks. I’m glad to see that there are “grownups” out there who still sleep with their plush pals.

    We do get a lot of comfort from them, don’t we. They represent some very powerful memories, and their tactile response can be very calming.

    I wish it were true that all our older stuffed toys could be washed, but let’s face it, some of these have been around awhile, and might disintigrate in the wash! You might want to consider buying a “duplicate” that can stand in for its worn out cousin.

    That’s where we come in, as we sell mint condition versions of many washable animals and toys, so please take a moment to stop by our Dirty Butter Plush Animal Shoppes.
