How to wash your child's stuffed animal

Filed under: Toys

After your child has dragged her favorite white Easter bunny through the mud, spilled food on it, and accidentally smeared poop on it during diaper changes when dad wasn't paying close enough attention, it needs to be cleaned.

Thanks to our friends at the Dollar Stretcher blog, you now have a method for removing those unsightly stains and/or the germ cocktail that probably classifies as a biological weapon.

Some tips include: washing/drying the toy in a tied up pillow case, drying them next to the dehumidifier instead of in the dryer (to keep them soft), and brushing out the tangles with an everyday hairbrush -- which can drastically improve the looks of a more weathered stuffed companion.

Please feel free to share your own toy-washing tips in the comments!
