I have a whole load of soft toys (teddy bears, bunny rabbits, etc) that have been stored in a lockup for a year. There is a strange musky smell about them. Do you have nay ideas as to how I can get rid of this smell - I am loathe to throw them all out as they belong to my young daughter.

Cleaning Stuffed Toys

Most stuffed toys can be laundered in the washing machine. Using a gentle setting, put the toys in a net bag (sold for washing stockings and lingerie). Wash with cool or warm water, and air dry. You will need to comb out the animals afterwards to fluff them up. A fabric or upholstery cleaner can also be used on most stuffed toys.
