Washing toys
 
Just wondering if anybody washes their dogs toys? My little puppers loves his stuffed toys but he got blood all over them from loosing teeth, and of course after getting busted for eating poo, the first thing in the mouth was a toy!:(
I would like to wash them but wondered if that was no good. I figured I could put them through the washing machine and the dryer, thinking twice through the wash, second time with no soap.

The plastic balls and other toys that are plastic type I have washed in a very diluted bleach solution. Then rinsed off really well. The flies seemed really attracted to those toys. This was many yearsd ago. After I wahsed them the flies left them alone.

You can wash hard and soft toys in the washer. Use a large mesh laundry bag makes it easier. I was all my kids toys, legos to stuffed toys in the machine.

Yup. I have a mesh laundry bag I load all the toys into and it goes in the washer and dryer. I just use half the amount of laundry detergent so I can be sure they aren't going to get sick off of any un-rinsed detergent.

Stuffed toys? What are those? Those don't last in my house long enough to wash, they don't make it five minutes:(

The stuffed ones I wash in the washing machine, the hard ones I run through the dishwasher on sanitize.

Just FYI, avoid washing anything with a squeaker in the washing machine. Della's favorite stuffed gorilla started sounding falsetto after I washed it :) Wiping down with a moist towel seems to be the way to go with those.
