They can be washed, just like pretty much all stuffed toys, but be sure to put it in a pillow case or it will come open at the seams most likely. Ganz plush animals are cheaply made it seems...we always have problems with ours even without washing them.
Glad to hear these positive reports of washing Webkinz. Our white ones are looking pretty shabby. I think I will try one and see how that goes.
For smelly pets, I would try Febreeze. Maybe "dry clean" by shaking it in a pillow case with baking soda. If you have to combat little creatures like lice, freeze it for a couple weeks. The local Books on Tape (for the blind) loans out tape players. Some come back with cockroaches. The library has found that freezing the tape players kills the bugs without damaging the machine.
Yep, you can wash them! If you go to contact us in the webkinz newspaper and pull up the list of questions to ask GANZ there's one about dry cleaning your webkinz and that it's safe and my mom had to wash mine and my brothers webkinz once when we got lice.
First, you get a sink full of luke warm water. Soak the webkinz In It, and put some Conditioner on It. rub It In REALLY WELL, and rinse out the soap, then empty the water, and give them a "Shower" under teh faucet. make sure you get all the soap possible out, then ring them out. do this with soap, conditioner, any child-friendly soap / conditioner.
I had to wash my niece's webbie since she wouldn't sleep without it. So we took a few dirty ones and put them in a mesh bag for "delicate" washables. I used woolite in the machine on the delicate cycle. Then I used a fluff/air dry cycle on the dryer, added 2 dry towels for a cushion, and left the webbies in the bag on that cycle for about 30 minutes. After that, I let them air out and finish drying. We had no problem, and everyone slept well...webbies and all.
