Tips for caring for your Hug Me Slug.

Hug Me Slugs plush toys may be gently spot cleaned, rinsed with cool water, and set out to air dry. I use a wash cloth, or a good-quality paper towel, with a small amount of soapy water, to gently wash spots on them, if needed. Then I use a wet cloth or paper towel to rinse the spot, or if necessary, I hold them under a running faucet to rinse the surface with cool water.

Hug Me Slug stuffed animals are carefully soft sculpted with a doll needle, to achieve their shape, and so I avoid putting them in a washing machine and I avoid squeezing them to remove excess water. I let them sit on a counter to air dry, with a towel under them, if there is any excess water. If they look like they would like some grooming, once they are dry, a toothbrush has worked nicely for me.
