Can I wash and dry a soft toy with polystyrene ball filling?
Found 10th Oct 2017
Bought a very large soft toy but it is filthy, unfortunately it's filled with small polystyrene balls so can't be machine washed. I've tried various dry type cleaners but they haven't touched the dirt, soaped it up a little yesterday but still looks filthy as I'm afraid to get it too wet. Does anyone know if I can actually wet and soap the toy properly without it destroying the filling, I'm frightened it'll never dry out and just go mouldy inside!Googling hasn't helped as most articles say don't wash but then don't give an alternative method of cleaning, other than shaking in a bag of baking powder! Any advice and help appreciated.
