Having children is messy. They’ll take a stuffed animal with them anywhere including the mall, the bathroom and the sandbox. At the end of the day, where do these dirty, germ-filled animals end up? In their bed or, even worse, in their mouth. You don’t think twice about washing their clothes or their sheets, but do you ever wash their stuffed animals?
Washing stuffed animals is tricky. If you just put them in your washer, the glass or plastic eyes get scratched, the seams can bust, and all of this can cause damage to your washer or dryer. Hand washing is difficult and the stuffed animals take days to air dry. There is, however, a solution to this problem, Teddy Needs a Bath.
Teddy Needs a Bath is a laundry bag, specially designed for stuffed animals. Simply place the stuffed animal into the bag, zip it up and throw it in your washer on a gentle cycle. After the wash, the entire bag goes into the dryer and out comes a clean, fluffy, germ-free friend.
Teddy Needs a Bath fits up to a dozen small toys or one large stuffed animal. It is the only solution on the market that allows you to safely wash all of your child’s stuffed animals. Studies have shown that simply washing a stuffed animal in hot water and drying it with hot air effectively kills harmful bacteria. This process removes dust mites as well, which have been shown to cause asthma in young children.
As a parent, you want to protect your child. You want to keep them away from germs and allergens that cause skin and respiratory issues. You want them to be happy and healthy. Teddy Needs a Bath makes it easy to do.
