Ahww heehee, I can imagine why you'd feel guilty to the plush toy...

We have pets; birds, cats and dogs. But we use stuff to prevent flea's. And if they get flea's, we just vaccuum more. I never had them jumping on me! Nor did I ever have plush animals with flea's, and I have a LOT of plushies.

This was just a very unlucky incident...

I thought of something else that helps with fleas in your home. Put mothballs in your vaccum bag and vacuum A LOT. It stinks, but it kills them and the eggs. It works!

The tag reads spot clean. To kill fleas, put it in a zip lock baggie with baking soda or Mule Team Borax. I would probably take my chances washing it on delicate cycle in one of those mesh bags for lacy things.

Incase nobody else has said this: The tag on my Lil Grey and White Cat says Suface Washable... that is the actual tag with the Code...
The tag sewed on to the actual Lil Kinz says the same...

Good luck with all!

thanks all for the great advice.

but i was stupid, and stuck him in the deep freezer the other night for extra precautions. i thought he had air dried completely, and i guess he wasn't or you are not supposed to leave them in a freezer for long.

cause i got him out in the afternoon and his long hairs were coming off as i looked through him searching for fleas ( i wasn't being harsh with him, they were just coming off). ggggrrrr. i feel so bad! i'm not sure what caused this, cause i told his dad about what happened, and he said that he had sprayed checkers with a flea spray when i had him sitting outside so the spray wouldn't be in the house in the air (we used this spray on the ready made bed that couldn't be cleaned, and it said to test on a corner area first as a precaution) so i am not sure if it was the freezer, the washing machine, or the flea spray that made checkers go bald.

i just wanted to post this and let you guys know that you may want to test first when it comes to heavy duty chemical sprays (which i think was the culprit but i am not one hundred percent certain so i can't lay all the blame on it) or a combination of the spray, and freezer......

i guess we just panicked a little over this situation cause checkers is a very much loved toy by my son and NEVER left his side so we wanted to make it all better for him. but in the end ruined him.

alot of you have said honesty is the best policy, and i feel so badly about telling him what happened to checkers i don't want to cause heartache over this. and for the one person who said buy another... well obviously you never had that one special animal that you couldn't let go even though they were mangled, dirty, and missing parts and you were begged to leave it at home or in the car when you went out but just wouldn't..... there is a love for that toy, that just can't be replaced. but i am going to have to, since checkers meant to much to him and it was my fault this happened.

just be careful when cleaning these guys.

and i am so glad about all of you that cared and suggested really smart and great ideas on how to clean him i wish we had listened better.
