Too much fabric softner(or dryer sheets) can make anything have a weird feeling. You really shouldn't wash your webbies in the washer, you should hand wash them and let them air dry.
I've tried spot washing little things on our webbies with wash cloths, baby wipes, and sponge and they really don't come that clean. My toddler covered Bandit our Racoon with chip dip-oh did he stink. I took him to the sink, got him wet, rubbed him good with some liquid tide laundry detergent, rinsed really really good, squeezed out as much excess water as I could, then repeated this process again(because he was so gooey and stinky). Afterwards I took a hand towel and fluffed up his fir and put him to dry in the dish strainer for 2 days(this is our webkinz hospital bed lol) He dried nice and soft and smelled fresh.
You can also soak really soiled/dirty webbies in the sink with some laundry detergent or dish soap for a few hours, wash them up, rinse well, squeeze out excess water then air dry. Our white rabbit and googles were filthy dirty, and afterwards they looked brand new. Be careful not to use a lot of soap, and rinse really well. That could make your webbie have a dryer sheet feel and look funny.
It sounds like a lot of work, but really it isn't. I hate to handwash anything so our first one my hubby washed. It was quick and easy-I'm partially paralized in my arms/hands and even I can wash our kids webbies myself. By handwashing, your extending the life of your webkinz. You wouldn't want them to fall apart in the washer or dryer.
Best of luck!
Sticky? I don't know. You might have used too much detergent or something. Extra dryer sheets shouldnt' have mattered. Do they smell like anything OTHER than detergent? Like maybe someting else was in the washing machine or dryer like a lollipop or lip gloss or something.
I know from other posts that webbies ARE washable, but I don't think they did the whole load at once either.
Try re-washing a couple of them but use just a little detergent. I'd also use the cold or wam cycle. Let us know what happens!
You also have to be very careful that when you wash stuffed animals, that they completely dry out. Or you will get mold growing in the stuffing. I would try handwashing, wring out as much water as you can, maybe let them go for a ride in the washer on the spin cycle! Then put them in the dryer with some new tennis balls for them to play with while the dryer spins. The balls help to fluff the stuffing. It sounds loud, but it works.
