Spot clean only. 100% wool blossoms will lose their crispness when soaked and become puffy. However, accidents happen and a full cleaning maybe become necessary.
1. In a clean basin, add a very small amount of gentle laundry detergent and mix with warm water.
2. Submerge your doll fully and gently wash.
3. Rinse with clean warm water, being sure to gently press out any extra suds that may be inside her stuffing. Do not twist her, as you may displace her stuffing. Gently pressing between your hands is best.
4. Place your doll inside a clean, dry towel and remove any excess water by pressing it out. Do not twist, or squeeze. This could displace her stuffing.
5. Air dry in a warm spot.
-Printed Cuddle Kokeshi
Gently hand wash or gentle cycle machine wash. You can opt to flat press out excess water inside a dry towel or you can machine dry on extra low heat.
Please be aware that the color will fade with excessive heat drying, like with any regular clothing item.
- Shisa Pups
Spot clean only.
However, if the doll should need a full cleaning:
1. Fill a small or medium bowl with a few drops of gentle detergent and warm water. Mix well.
2. Fully submerge your shisa and gently wash. Take special care to not rub the French knots on the mane and tail with much pressure.
3. Rinse and remove promptly. Lay the doll flat in between layers of a towel and press out all excess water. Take carel to press straight down when doing this process in order to better keep the doll's shape and not 'hurt' any of the French knots.
