Do it: Sanitize Stuffies, Parents!


Let’s talk about a topic that we all know well, parents! Stuffed Animals.

They are everywhere, right?

Beloved friends to have and hold since the day we are born {maybe before}, kids love their stuffies. They foster their creative side in play, are there for all the big moments as they grow, and are so comforting in times if illness and sadness.

Best friends forever, stuffed animals endure so much and go everywhere imaginable.

… so, I hate to put a damper on the sweetness here, but when’s the last time you really washed all those stuffies in your house?

Do you know what dust mites and germs are in those things?! Gah, I’m such a debbie downer…

When your child is sick, you sanitize and scrub the carpet, clothes, sheets, doorknobs etc. What about the stuffies? You know, the ones they hug continually and rub their faces in? Please don’t tell me it’s been since your kid was very little, hobbling around using ‘bear-bear’ as a tissue for that toddler-drip!

I have to admit, it slips my mind too. I do wash the ‘favorite’ stuffies when I think of it, which is usually when one of them is noticeably needing some TLC. Yet what about the ones lying around in corners or shelves that you don’t see much?

Confession: I’m pretty sure there are a few that would fall under the ‘never’ category … ewww.

Challenge #2 in the Maytag Blogger Challenge is all about stuffies and sanitizing them. Thing is, and this is the cool part … are you reading carefully cause things are about to get incredible? All the super-cleaning magic happens in the dryer.

It’s true, the  Maytag® Maxima XL™ HE Steam Dryer with a quiet SoundGuard® drum has a Sanitize Cycle that raises temperatures to eliminate 99.9% of certain household bacteria, dust mites and other allergens. You read that right, the dryer dries clothes {obviously}, but it can also sanitize them.

This is awesome news for those items that you don’t want to go into the washer. You know, those delicate and precious items that you need to clean {and I mean, clean} without being shaken, stirred and scrubbed in water.

Watch the video below, as we tackle some serious stuffy sanitation {say that 5 times fast}, DRYER-STYLE!

Our stuffies: Brown Bear, Ellie, Kitty, Bunny and more went in stinky and sad and came out refreshed. I am especially happy to finally clean my childhood friend, Bunny, whom has spent years collecting germs. She’s now ready to take on another 22* years with our family.

After we sanitized the stuffed animals, the twins remarked how soft and great-smelling they were, and I liked that the fur didn’t pill or look disheveled. Overall I’m so impressed with the Sanitize Cycle, and know I will love it more when the kids get the next round of the flu.

Huggable, lovable and very clean friends, I think we can all sleep better knowing that our dear stuffed friends are not full of dust mites!

sanitizing cycle maytagbloggerchallenge

Thing is, you can sanitize even more than just stuffies, so I made a little list.

Items you should be sanitizing in your home, perhaps once per month:

  • Stuffed animals
  • Pet beds/blankets
  • Pillows

Can you think of more items that could be sanitized in this awesome Maytag Maxima XL dryer?

  2. My little ones doesn’t have a specific stuffie she’s in love with – she has a million! πŸ™‚ I would sanitize them all. My washer and dryer makes the loudest beep when it’s done… drives me bonkers, ‘ cause I always think it’s going to wake the kidlets

  3. Would sanitize my pet’s bedding and stuffed toys! The Maytag Maxima XL Washer and Dryer look like a great set, love all the options on them

  4. I am literally daydreaming about that dryer as I write this. As a Mom, a sanitization cycle would be a dream come true!!!! My children have so many stuffies and I hate putting them through just the wash cycle. I am beyond impressed with this product and the video, wow…blew it out of the water for me. It is nice to read about products, but including an actual look at it in use …LOVE IT!!! Plus, I can relate to everything your girls do with their stuffies, as mine do the same things..And I can’t believe Bunny is already 22 years old {hehe}….She looked pretty great after the cycle, which really impressed me!

  21. This is awesome! I wish I had read this before we replaced our dryer last year. My trick is to add fabric softener to the load when I wash my kids stuffies.
