and i'm not talking puke here. i washed him with johnsons shampoo and then a bit of dettol but he still smells awful. dh thinks bung him in a pillowcase then the washing machine but i am not convinced he will survive. poor dd, she is still not well and tonight had to go to sleep without him for first time in her 19months soppy
I have put all my kids teddies and such through the washing machine a number of times and they are fine though it sad watching their little aces going round and round! I never put them in a pillow case though and they are obviously not quite the same but very clean!
I put all the DDs' soft toys in the washing machine on a wool cycle. I don't care if you're not meant to do it, I can't stand the smell! And they've all survived fine, though the DDs sometimes find it a bit distressing to see their favourite cuddly toy hanging on the washing line by its ears. [evil mum emoticon]
My DSis has terrible problems with her oldest DD's cuddy toys - DNiece compains that they don't smell right after they've been washed! DSis says that is because they are rank by the time she manages to prise them out of (11-yo) niece's hands!
