There they sit -- in the corner, on the bed, in the chair.
Or even in the basement of your Albany-area home.
They never talk back, they always smile -- if that’s their nature -- and they don’t move until you move them.
They’re your “kids,” or your kids’ “kids,” although others might refer to them by a more conventional term -- stuffed animals.
But, just like your real children, they need to be clean. The reason? So that they don’t gather dust and spread bacteria that can cause health issues.
What is the best way to clean them, though, given the delicate nature of their fur? Or their battery cases?
There are four key ways to clean your stuffed animals -- in your washing machine, by hand, by dry washing, or by vacuuming.
The highlights of those methods come from www.fabhow.com (for full details go to this link also):
After using one of these methods -- or more than one, depending on how many furry friends you have -- you can give the stuffed animals back to your children, or to your significant other as a sparkling surprise on Valentine’s Day or any other special day.
After all, we all want clean kids, right?
