Cleaning Stuff Toys without Throwing them in the Laundry

My daughter loves stuff toys. She had a collection of this toys and every night, she would get them all and line them up on the bed before she sleeps and bid goodnight to them one by one. And this is why I always see to it that these stuffed toys are clean. But, truth is, it's often hard to keep stuffed animals clean without throwing them in the washing machine. And as much as possible I don't throw them in the machine as my daughter will never want them leaving her sight. Good thing, I got hold of this helpful tips in cleaning stuffed toys. This tips will tell you how to freshen them up in a few simple steps.

  1. Place toys in a bag.
  2. Pour ½ cup of baking soda into bag.
  3. Shake toys around until they are well coated. The baking soda will help draw out any dirt, soot, and odors.
  4. Remove toys from bag and dust off any large amounts of baking soda.
  5. Use a vacuum cleaner with a hose attachment to suck up any remaining residue.
That's it!
