How do I wash my plush toy in the washing machine?
Before washing a stuffed animal, examine it carefully. Are there parts that need to be removed first? Any strings that need to be secured?
Stuffed animals are similar to pillows in that they wash much better if laundered in a machine that does not have an agitator. If you have a top loader, you could always take a large load and wash them at the laundromat.
- Washing with an agitator tends to make the animal ball up due to the agitator displacing the batting.
- After determining your stuffed animal can be washed, place it in a mesh laundry bag. The mesh bag gives it an extra level of protection from snagging or being pummeled too much in the machine.
- Always wash stuffed animals on the gentle/delicate cycle. They just can’t tolerate a more aggressive washing that a ‘normal’ cycle would give.
- You can use a warm or cool wash but steer clear of hot. If items are glued on, the hot water might dissolve some of the glue.
- After washing, remove from the bag and hang dry.
Can I dry my plush toy in the dryer?
Dryer heat – even on low – could potentially melt glued on or plastic parts.
What type of plush toys shouldn’t be washed in the washing machine?
You Can’t Wash Your Stuffed Animal in the Washing Machine if:
- They have a music box sewn inside
- They are extremely old and fragile
- They have items glued on – sequins, etc. Glued-on eyes probably willsurvive a washing.
- They have delicate ‘clothing’ items on that can’t be removed (think glittery, net-type dresses or delicate little crowns or the like)
- They have small foam balls inside (like Beanie Babies) not batting.
