By Tracie Knight

Most people love stuffed toys. It is one of the valuable belongings of a person. It remind us of the moments these toys represent. Some of them bring us some of our happy memories.

We should always take care of it just like our possessions. These stuffable animals have to be cleaned regularly. To maintain their look, they have to be cleaned regularly. If they are well maintained, it will be able to last for a long time. The following are procedures on cleaning them properly.

If they become dirty, check first if the toys have care instructions from the manufacturer on its labels. You should follow these instructions as these are the proper ones you should do. Care instructions differ depending on the material it is made of. There are those who have fur coats made from materials which are synthetic just like polyester. There are also those who have a natural material just like wool which is covering their body.

You will need baking soda. The baking soda should be sprinkled on the animals. It will be kept fresh by the baking soda. Just leave the baking soda in there for more or less fifteen minutes. When fifteen minutes is done, brush them off. You should not put much force when brushing them as you could damage the animal.

Get the vacuum and turn it on. Use the hose attachment of the vacuum to softly vacuum the dust particles and those dirt off the toy. Keep doing that every week. Ensure that there will be no objects which could get sucked off from the toy. One of these objects could be their loose eyes, their ribbon or bows.

If it has some soiled parts, you need to get rid of that too. Remove it with the use of mild all purpose cleaner and sponge. If the parts are heavily soiled, use some scrub to gently brush it off that part. If there are some spots and stain you wanted to remove, you may use some rubbing alcohol for it.

You last resort would be to wash those toys on a washing machine. Look at its label if they could be wet. There are instances where the animals get disfigured when they would get wet which is why you need to ensure that. If its really requires you that, you could placed them inside the pillow case one toy at a time. Use some safety pins to seal the pillow case. Wash that on delicate cycle mode. Then, add some fabric softener so you could make the coat fluffy.

Dry them using a hair dryer. It is best to use a hair dryer rather than your clothes dryer since your stuffed things are really sensitive. You should also be careful not to get them to be too close to the hair dryer. If you do not have a dryer, you can just let it dry on air. It will just take you several days to get them dried but that would be that best option if you do not want them to be damaged.

Our stuffed things are one of our valuable stuff. Some people consider it to be part of their family. Just like our family, we should also be taking care of it.
