Im sure this is a topic that has already been touched upon, but I'm looking for some updated info and opinions on how you all clean your bears.
I have yet to clean them, Duffy is about one year old, and Shellie May is only a couple of months old.
Duffy is only slightly dirty on his muzzle. I brought them to see my mom for a visit in their new summer outfits and she pointed out the surface dirt. I panicked. hahaha.
I don't want my bears anywhere near a washer, or to completely submerge them. I know that build-a-bear carries a "Bear Stuff Cleaner" But I'm unsure of how well that might work, or what it smells like, or if it's something I'll be allergic to (I have allergies).
I was thinking about using Dreft detergent, fabric refresher spray and downy free and sensitive fabric softener and surface cleaning them and brushing them with a baby brush.
What do you guys do? How do you clean your bears?
