Odor removal

These poor plushies can develop unpleasant odors over time due to the fact that they are often dragged around by people or used as furniture.

It is best to sprinkle baking soda or baking powder onto the plush in order to absorb and neutralize any odors. This will save you the hassle of cleaning the entire thing. You can cover your stuffed toy in baking soda and leave it to sit for at least one hour.

Use the brush attached at your vacuum cleaner to gently vacuum the baking soda and dust from your plushies.

A good trick is to combine lavender oil and water in a spray bottle, then spray your teddy around. This will give your stuffed animal a lovely fresh scent and make it cuddlier.

Cleaning

  • Detachable accessories can be removed and cleaned separately.
  • Make a small bowl of warm water. Add a little bit of neutral detergent (such a silk or wool detergent) to the basin. You will get a small basin of diluted detergent.
  • Place the plushies inside a tub or another suitable container. To remove any stains, use a soft-bristled brush or a piece of white towel to gently scrub the entire body. This could cause stitches to be broken. To avoid a deep penetration of detergent into the stuffed animal body, don't use too much. You can also apply white vinegar mixed in water to the affected area.
  • Use a clean, white towel to dampen the plush. Rinse it with warm water. This may mean that you will need to rinse the plushies several times to get rid of all the detergent.
  • Let the toy air dry to prevent any damage. To remove any excess moisture, wipe the plush skin with a thick, white towel. The plush can be dried by hanging it to dry with clothespins or on a dried platform. To save time, you can use a hair dryer or clothes dryer at the lowest setting.
  • Gently comb the plushie with a soft brush or comb when it is dry.
