My husband and I opened five Zazzle storefronts within the past few months and we've been posting (hopefully useful) articles online to gain attention and help drive traffic to our offerings.
We're been publishing those articles to corresponding web site, which is hosted on Google Drive. Unfortunately, Pinterest won't let us link directly to the web pages, because it considers it to be a redirect. It will, however, allow links to this blog. It's complicated and frustrating to both us and the people wanting to read our articles.
If you arrived at this page from Pinterest and would rather not select the "click here" link above, the content of the "How to Clean Your Child's Stuffed Bear" follows. We're glad you're here and invite you to tour the rest of this blog (which is devoted to our life in, and slow renovations of, our humble 1970s fixer-upper.) If you'd like to learn more about our Zazzle sites, we've published the links below the article.
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR CHILD'S STUFFED BEAR
- Read and follow the directions on your bear's care label. These supersede any information you'll read here or elsewhere. When in doubt, consult a professional.
- Don't use harsh detergents or cleaners on washable bears.
- Keep bear out of direct sunlight to help prevent fading.
- Keep bear away from moisture/mist/water/liquids, to prevent mildewing and mold.
- Dust bear regularly.
- Insect damage can happen in even the cleanest homes. Check bear regularly for signs of infestation.
- Keep bear away from hear/fire sources.
- Check for loose pieces (arm sockets, eyes, nose, etc.) Fix any issues as soon as practicable.
- Protect bear from the elements.
- Don't store bear in plastic: it encourages mold growth.
