I think, other people do this but I've never tried, you could fill the sink with water and poor shampoo on them. Then scrub them. As long as you wash it off, and dry it proparly, I don't see how this could hurt them. BUT I wouldn't wash them in the washing machine.. unless, my family puts our plushies that need washing in a pillow sack and ties it so the washing machine doesn't damage them. Good luck!

This has happened to me before.. A LOT!!

What I do is I fill the sink up with luke warm water and while its filling up i poor baby shampoo into the sink for it to get bubbly (you can just use regular soap or something) I'll dip them in and scrub them under the water really good, then get some yummy smelling shampoo and matching conditoner, and scrub their body's all around, i'l let the water drain and turn on the faucet to rince them off, then i put them in the dryer with a Snuggle Fabric Softner, to make them small good and they will be extra warm After words, you could put some perfume on them

But make sure you get ALL the soap out, I read that someone didn't get all of it out and it got gross, so its really important, Hope this helps!

we've put one through the wash before, but the fur came out not as soft as it had been originally. I would spot clean first, then use the washing machine if that doesn;t work.

If it is just surface dirty....I wipe them with baby wipes. Yep, you read that right. Baby wipes. Works wonderfully and they smell great.

However,

We had one Webbie that took a shower in chocolate milk don't ask. Anyway, I washed it in the sink with baby magic baby bath, rinsed it really well, and then squeezed out the water.

I then wrapped it in a towel and squeezed it again. I left it air dry and then used one of those wide tooth doll brushes to brush the coat and fur.

Turned out as good as new and smells wonderful.

A soak in mouthwash (e.g. Listerine) or borax can help kill germs & remove odors.
Dish soap or liquid hand soap or mild detergent for stains.
You'd need to do 2 or 3 rinses. A few drops of vinegar in rinse water removes excess soap.
I'd do the towel roll/step method mentioned above for initial dry, then
air fluff rest of way,
unless dryer has a known hunger streak.

(A cup of vinegar is recommended in 2nd rinse of towels to remove all soap so they fluff better in dryer.)

I wash mine. Here is what I do. I put them in a pillowcase and put a knot on the open end of the case so they will not fall out. Then I stick the case into the washer on delicate. I dry some of them but most of the time I do not because it scratches their eyes to hit the sides of the dryer.

Hmmm, I do not recommend washer. BUT if you go into Build a Bear Workshop, they have a fur cleaner for their bears that would definitely work on the 'kinz too!

Sometimes my dog takes my plush Webkinz. The fur usually gets all crusty, and to get rid of the crust, all you do is rub it. It really helps make it soft, but not the smell.

We have one cat that likes to play with the Webbies. I found out the hard way after she put one in the sink that the one thing you do not want to do is use a hair dryer on them. The fur melted a little.
