Does Your Dog Get Their Stuffed Toys Dirty?

Now and again our stuffed toys end up outside and we need to go some cleaning so they do not look so dirty. Here are some tips that work with most stuffed toys as well.

Cute and cuddly, squishmallows have become the go-to companion for kids and adults alike. But just like any other stuffed animal, they can quickly accumulate dirt and grime. Fortunately, washing a squishmallow doesn’t have to be a daunting task. Read on to learn how to keep your squishmallows clean and ready for cuddles!

The Basics of Cleaning Squishmallows
The most important thing to keep in mind when cleaning your squishmallow is that you should never put it in the washing machine or dryer. Instead, hand wash your furry friend using a mild detergent and cold water. You can also use a damp cloth with soap if you don’t want to use detergent. Be sure to avoid harsh scrubbing or rubbing as this may damage the fabric of your squishmallow.

Once you’ve finished washing your squishmallow, let it air dry by laying it flat on a towel or drying rack. Do not put it in direct sunlight as this can cause fading or discoloration over time. It’s best to let it sit overnight before giving it back to its owner so that all of the moisture has evaporated from the fabric.

How To Remove Stains From Your Squishmallow
Stains on your squishmallow can happen more often than you think – but no need to worry! The best way to remove stains is with natural ingredients such as baking soda and vinegar. Start by mixing one part white vinegar with two parts warm water in a bowl and then dip in an old toothbrush into the mixture. Gently scrub away at the stain until it is gone and then rinse the area with cold water once done cleaning. Let air dry as usual afterwards.
If that doesn’t work, try using natural dish soap diluted with warm water (1 part soap to 10 parts water). Rub lightly onto affected areas until stains disappear, then rinse off with cool water before allowing air dry as usual. As an added measure of precaution, consider placing some newspaper under the towels you are using for air drying – this will help absorb excess moisture from your squishmallow if there is any left over after airing out overnight!

Keeping your beloved squishmallows clean doesn't have to be hard work! All you need is some mild detergent and cold water (or natural dish soap), along with patience and gentle scrubbing motions on tough stains - voila! Just remember not to expose your squishmallows directly to sunlight during air drying process or risk fading/discoloration over time – also make sure that all moisture has fully evaporated before giving them back out for hugs and cuddles again! With these tips in mind, now everyone can enjoy their favorite soft plush friends without worry of dirt buildup ruining those precious moments together! Enjoy those cuddles!

Have A Great Day!

See You Soon...
