How to Clean Beanie Buddies

Written by kathryn hatter | 13/05/2017

Ty, Incorporated, the makers of Beanie Babies stuffed toys, expanded their item line to include larger stuffed toys called "Beanie Buddies." These larger stuffed animals have all of the same character of the smaller toys but with more size for children to love. As children play with their Beanie Buddies, the soft surface often soils over time. Clean Beanie Buddies by washing the surface only, to avoid saturating the inside stuffing.

Fill a sink with warm water and add two to three squirts of dish-washing detergent to make sudsy water.

Saturate the cleaning cloth in the water and wring it out thoroughly.

Use the wet cleaning cloth to rub the surface of the Beanie Buddy. Start in an inconspicuous area first to ensure the soapy water does not damage the toy. Wait five minutes and then check the area you cleaned. As long as the colour remains the same, surface cleaning with the wet rag should be safe.

Clean the entire surface area of the Beanie Buddy with the wet cloth, saturating the cloth in the sudsy water several times to keep it soapy.

Rinse the cleaning cloth under running water and use the cloth to wipe away the soap residue from the Beanie Buddy.

Rub the Beanie Buddy gently with the towel to remove as much excess moisture as possible.

Allow the Beanie Buddy to air dry in a warm and dry location. This may take several days. Alternatively, you could also set a blow dryer to low heat and direct it over the Beanie Buddy to dry it more quickly.
