Frequently Asked Questions

How to clean a stuffed animal that can’t be washed?

Add some baking soda into a plastic bag and place the stuffed animal inside the bag while ensuring adequate coverage. Remove excess air from the pack and leave enough space for the toy to move freely. Tie the plastic bag and shake it up and down and also from left to right in a circular motion for two minutes. Keep the stuffed animal enclosed for about 15 minutes to remove dirt from the fabric. Finally, remove the toy from the bag and shake it to remove the excess baking soda. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove residual baking soda plus dirt from the stuffed animal toy.

How to make a stuffed animal?

Choose a fabric with the right color for your stuffed animal. You can buy new fabric or repurpose one from your old clothes. Choose an animal you intend to make to help you create the right pattern, for instance, a bear. Draw a design for your stuffed animal and use it to cut the fabric. Pin the cut fabric pieces together and sew (you may also use glue here). Turn the stitched fabric inside out and fill it up using a stuffing material. Close the opening and decorate your stuffed animal, depending on how you want it to be.
