I haven't washed mine, but I could tell you that hand washing is the best way, ideally you should use a damp cloth with a little baby shampoo or laundry soap (not the detergent, the hand was stuff). otherwise you may give your pet and inadvertent perm! if its really dirty hand wash in the sink trying to prevent saturating him/her with water.

You should hand wash them with a washcloth and water.

I heard that if you wash them in the dryer and they don't dry right, they might be stinky.

When I cleaned my webkinz, I did the spikey haired kinds, (Like the snakes, tiger, golden retirever, etc.) very carefully.

But if it is like a himilayan or a samoyed webkinz, make sure you brush their hair afterwards! Then they might have a silly hair-do!

Well, pretty much you are only supposed to spot wash your Webkinz according to manufacturers directions. You can take a tiny amount of mild soap and water and gently wipe the area.

That being said...

I have 2 daughters that love their plushie friends sometimes too well. In the mud, dirt, holding them while they eat, and so on... We typically take them and put them in a pillow case, and then tie it shut. We will then wash on a gentle cycle and dry them on the LOWEST heat setting possible. If you can not set the heat, then placing them on a heating vent -forced air-will help them dry at a pace with out melting them (typically).

There have been several threads in this section concerning this same matter, you might want to go back through some previous pages and see what other ways people have cleaned their pets

Hope I helped you some!

Just so you know (and this is true of all textiles) -- manufacturers are required by law to publish cleaning instructions that are the most certain of a positive outcome. So, often times you will see manufacturer recommendations that are more restrictive than what you could actually do without damage.

For example, many clothing items say "dry clean only" but are perfectly OK in a gentle wash.

I would be most careful about the "curly" fabrics such as the American Cocker Spaniel. Other soft furs can probably be brushed back to fullness, but they may lose some of their soft texture. It's up to you decide what matters more to you -- the softness or the cleanliness.

I use a clean damp wash cloth w/ a little baby wash on them. Next I blow dry a little just on low/ warm so they dont get the "wet smell"!! Happy Cleaning!!!!

Okay, here's a sign that I need to take a break from the virtual world and spend some more time in the real world. When I read the first post, I thought the question was about washing virtual webbies in WW. I couldn't understand why the OP thought that some pets couldn't be washed in WW.... LOL did anyone else make this mistake or am I the only nutty one?
