What are the stains of old plush animals?

There may be many kinds of situations when plush toys become dirty. Here we briefly analyze several points:


(1) Children may have dirty hands or other body parts when touching plush toys during their normal play.


(2) Because they are placed casually after playing, they may be placed on the dirty ground or desktop, and the surface of stuffed toys is stained with dirty things.


(3) Because of the long idle time, the surface of them has mildew, so we should clean and expose them in time.


How to clean?

(1) Dry absorption

Buy a bag of big salt, that is, coarse salt. Put the coarse salt and dirty plush toys in a larger plastic bag. Then shake the bag tightly. In a few minutes, you will find that the plush toys are clean. Then the plush dude can be removed from the bag and the dust and crude salt left behind can be removed with a soft brush. For those large pieces of ash, we can use the power of the vacuum cleaner.


(2) Washing

For small toys, we can first use tape to stain parts that are afraid of wear and tear, then put them directly into the washing machine to wash, shake, hang the shade to dry thoroughly, and pat the toys intermittently to make their fur, fillings fluffy and soft.

Then for large toys, we can find filling seams, cut seams, take out fillers, special parts can not be taken, with tape to wear parts, put the toy skin into the washing machine, gently wash, dry, hang in the shade, and intermittently pat toys, make their fur, fillers fluffy, soft. Then the filler is put into the toy skin, shaping and stitching. Then use the comb gently along the direction of the plush carding finalization.


(3) Machine wash

For some plush dolls labeled "machine washable", they can be cleaned thoroughly by choosing soft detergent, gentle speed and low temperature drying.



The above is a brief introduction to the production and cleaning methods of plush toys. Although washing can't make stuffed toys completely old and new, it's much better after washing than before. Generally speaking, the quality of plush and filler of brand toys is better, and the shape recovered after cleaning is also better. Low-quality plush is liable to change after being cleaned. Therefore, when buying, we must pay attention to the selection of high-quality products that are conducive to health. Of course, I think the most important thing is to pay attention to the hygiene of plush toys in the process of playing with them, so that our favorite stuffed toys can accompany us for longer.
