how do you wash 'surface clean only' toys?


So im sat here at 1.10AM pondering how to wash Amaris favorite doodle pip...
Toys seem to get very dirty here and could use a regular wash to get looking their best.

Can i put them in the washing machine? Like on a low heat with loads of towels so they dont get to banged up?



quick update, Did all her toys on a 32 minute 50degree wash (50 is all my machine does for that duration!) and they came out beautifully!, Look brand new! i will defo be doing it again!

I put them in with a coat.

erm yeah i guess you could, on a very low spin. I just use a damp cloth, bit of washing up liquid if it is really mucky, then wipe soap off with a clean cloth and let dry. Depends on the level of destruction i suppose

I was wondering this! My LO's stuffed Lamaze toys and taggie books are usually drenched in dribble and then thrown on floors etc and need a good wash! Think I'll just stick them in a really low wash! If I did it to my OH's 450 jacket without doing any damage, I can do it to LO's toys! x

Let us know how it goes. I've been wanting to do the same thing but if I ruin her toys I can't afford to go buy her new ones to replace them all lol. Maybe I'll try putting them in a pillow case before throwing them in the wash.
