Full Answer

For stuffed animals that can go into a washing machine, it is advisable to first place them in a mesh garment bag or pillow case. Wash the toy using cold water in the delicate cycle. For toys that can't be machine washed, hand washing with a gentle detergent is the best method. Mild detergents or a color-safe bleach product such as Oxi-Clean can be used for gentle spot cleaning. Baking soda or cornmeal can absorb grease stains and odors. For the best results, stuffed animals should be air dried.
