Homenavarrow Cleaning Tips & Advice

Removing allergens and dust mites from stuffed animals & toys

If your children have stuffed animals, it can be alarming just how much they can become laden with allergy-causing dust mites. However, it is quite easy to kill all the dust mites in stuffed toys without having to constantly be washing them and drying them.

To kill dust mites in stuffed animals, simply wrap them in plastic - such as placing them in a ziploc bag - then just pop them in the freezer for a few hours. Freezing will kill the dust mites living within the fluff and stuffing.

This tip also works on pillows too! Just make sure you wrap them well in plastic, and it will need a bit longer in the freezer since they are so much larger than stuffed animals.

Do this every week or so, to keep the toys dust mite free. It is easy to just pop them in right before going out and running errands, that way you don't need to worry about your child wanting the stuffed toy while it is being de-mited!
