If your child‘s stuffed animal frog is in need of a bath, here are some tips to get the job done. First, check the manufacturer‘s label to see if the toy can be machine washed. If so, put it in a mesh laundry bag and wash it on the delicate cycle with cold water. If the label says to hand wash only, fill a sink with cold water and a mild detergent. Submerge the frog and let it soak for 10 minutes. Drain the sink and squeeze the water out of the frog. Next, rinse the frog with cold water until the water runs clear. Finally, pat the frog dry with a towel and let it air dry completely.
If your stuffed frog is made of polyester, acrylic or nylon, it can go in the clothes dryer on a low–heat setting. Put the stuffed animal in a mesh laundry bag to protect it from getting tangled with other items in the load. If the frog is instead made of felt, stuffed with cotton or down, or has sequins or beads, don‘t put it in the dryer. These materials can all shrink, bleed color or melt in the heat.
No, washing a frog plush will not ruin it. In fact, it is recommended that you wash your frog plush regularly to keep it clean and fresh. However, there are a few things you should keep in mind when washing your frog plush. First, use a mild detergent and cool water. Avoid hot water, as this can cause the fabric to shrink. Second, avoid using a washing machine or dryer, as these can also damage the fabric. Instead, air dry your frog plush. Finally, if your frog plush has any special features, such as button eyes or a embroidered mouth, be sure to remove these before washing.
