Today, in Our Home, I am talking about how I clean Riley's Doodle Bear, named Pretty :)
Tyler and I bought this one for her 6th birthday a few weeks ago, and I've already cleaned it a couple times! She really loves to draw on her bear.
Have you ever read the label on these dolls? When I first read that you need to wash them within 48 hours, I was a little worried. It had now been at least a week that the doll was laying in Riley's room.
So what I decided to do was pre-treat the colored spots with Shaklee's liquid laundry soap, and let it sit for a few hours (about 4). Then I washed it on a small cycle in cold/cold with 1/4oz of the same liquid soap I used to pre-treat and about 2 pinches of Shaklee's Nature Bright (Laundry booster & stain remover, powder).
You can see the color spreads, as it sits with the pre-treat. The first time her whole forehead was blue!
Last night I just air dried Pretty, but the the first time I stuck her in the dryer on low, inside a pillow case (as per the label), but she wouldn't stay in!
Riley is so happy when she has a clean doll to put make-up on again!
