We have this labskin:http://www.mommasbaby.com/item--Bowr...skinShorn.html
And it NEEDS to be washed. But the website doesn't say what to use on it. So, how do you wash them? Will it still be just as yummy and soft?
How long does it take to wash and dry it? My baby doesn't sleep as well without it...he loves it.
Thanks!

I have a different one, but I have washed it many times with a gentle detergent in the washing machine. It is never quite the same, but I spent a lot of time brushing it after washing and it is really very soft still.

I have one from IKEA and have been wondering how to clean it. I think mine said dry clean but I'm wondering if I could just hand wash it?

I have two. I wash them in the washing machine on the handwash/gentle cycle with cold water, and a bit of shampoo (just cause that is what my mom used to do ) and a couple drops of TTO. I hang it to dry. After it's dry I throw it in the dryer on fluff for just a couple of minutes to fluff it.
