Recently I got a GANZ stuffed animal, named the Wooly Lamb. (Not a webkinz) Her name is Poppy, and her fleece is fluffy white. The problem is; I want her to stay clean, but our house has 3 cats, with means lots of fur everyone and lint. Does anyone have any suggestions to keep her clean? I don't want to keep her in a plastic bag all her life. Her surface is washable. Thanks!
You might try spraying her with a Fabric Guard. It does very well on furniture to prevent soiling and liquid spills. Webberlily's suggestion of using the vacuum to remove the lint and cat hair is a good idea or just a really good shaking. She is such a cute little lamb.
Hi! I have 2 cats (one is 22 pounds!) so I feel your pain about cat hair.
I have 2 suggestions:
1) Put your lamb in the dryer on "air tumble" (this doesn't have any heat, it just "fluffs") with a dryer sheet like Bounce or a store brand and tumble for about 5 minutes. The dryer sheet will help to repel the cat hair and also make it come off a lot easier in case any hair gets on your pet. It won't hurt or stain your pet!
2) one of my favorite tricks ever to get pet hair off me, my clothes and You Name It is to take some transparent tape and make a loop that goes snugly around you hand, sticky side out (duct tape is also awesome to use). Then either roll or tap the sticky side of the tape on your pet and grab the hair, pressing just as hard as you need to. You might have to do this a few times with fresh tape if your pet is extra cat-haired
I hope this helps you! I know even in spite of best efforts, that cat hair just finds its way into and onto everything!
This also sounds kind of extreme, but when you're not using your lamb, you could put her in a plastic bag. (Leave an air hole if it makes you feel better. ) If you're not one to display your 'kinz, it really works for the more fluffy of the bunch.
Keep your eyes open at yard sales or second hand stores for a inexpense Barrister Bookcase. They have a glass door on them and you can find some small ones. Bought one for my son to protect all his "valuables".
Everyone here has some great ideas and I am sure they will work well. The bookcase sounds like a great idea for keeping the lamb and other kinz clean.
I collect teddy bears and I have a product that I think is called bear wash that you can sponge on a plush and clean it without soaking it with water, but I don't remember now where I bought it. But that sounds like more than what you need.
