How do you clean one of these stuffed animals?

These stuffed animal toys are machine-washable or can be spot-cleaned, depending on their construction. Toys with embroidered items should be machine-washed on a gentle cycle with non-chlorine bleach and then air-dried. Those with three-dimensional features should be spot-cleaned rather than machine-washed so that pieces of the toy do not break off in the wash. A soft cloth should be dipped into warm water with or without gentle soap mixed in with it. Stains can then be wiped and dabbed until they are removed. You should always air-dry these stuffed animal toys.
