Question Stuffed bear

What's the best way to wash a stuffed animal bear? He's white and looking pretty dirty and matted.

If not I throw ours in the washer on quick wash and in the dryer..

Put him into a pillowcase and tie the open end closed. Wash him in the washing machine on cold with a load of whites on the gentle cycle.

When the washer is finished, you can either put him (inside the pillowcase still) into the dryer on low or fluff him and let him air dry for a couple of days. We wash our stuffed animals all the time this way and it works pretty well. (I always dry mine in the dryer with the load of clothes.)

I always wash mine in the washer on the shortest load speed, and then toss them in the dryer on gentle. I do this for a lot of them that say "spot clean/surface wash" only too, and I've never had a problem. To me, it's worth taking the risk if they're too disgusting to play with anyways. YKWIM? Good luck.
