How to Clean a Ty Beanie and all Ty Plush, Properly
Now that we’ve listed what not to do when trying to renew your child’s plush, let’s get to our recommendations for cleaning Beanie Boos and Ty plush products. The iconic Ty heart tag instructs parents and kids to “surface clean” only. This means spot cleaning the blemished area of the plush toy will be your best bet to restore the Beanie Boo. Here are our recommended suggestions to refresh your youngster’s Ty plush. *Caution: We always advise that you first test out any of these cleaning tactics on a tiny spot that is not quite as visible to see how the plush Beanie handles it.
Any of these suggested cleaning solutions could be applied to all Ty products - Beanie Boos, Beanie Babies, plush purses, kids’ face masks, Squishy Beanies, Flippables, Beanie Balls, small clips, plush footwear, sea sequins, backpacks, Baby Ty, classics, Teeny Ty, and Mini Boos. The only exception to the “surface clean” instructions is Ty plush socks for kids. These adorable socks, which will probably get grass stains and covered in dirt, can and should be thrown in a weekly load of laundry.
When you take any of these careful steps to cleanse your child’s plush beanie properly, your kiddo will thank you, and you will be happy because they’ll have their favorite plush - good as new. No more tears over spilled milk - literally.
If the plush toy doesn’t come clean after applying any of the above cleaning techniques because of a tough and hard-to-remove stain, you may have to throw in the towel and repurchase a new Ty plush.
