Care and Cleaning
If you happen to get something on your Squishmallow, don't worry!
Squishmallows are machine washable, and for small stains using a simple stain remover pen or wet wipe can help. Also, you can use liquid (NOT GEL) hand sanitizer by squirting a small amount onto a cloth and gently scrubbing the stain.
For regular washes, Squishmallows SHOULD NOT be washed on their own. Squishmallows should be washed with bedding and similar materials to ensure the machine does not damage them and so they will keep their squish magic.
Make sure your washing machine is *NOT* set to HOT. It's best to wash Squishmallows in COOL water only. After this, you can put your Squishmallow in the dryer and tumble dry it at low heat or air fluff. They don't like to get too hot! DO NOT use a hairdryer, iron, heat gun, or other handheld heating appliance to dry your Squishmallows. High a heat can cause colors to bleed.
Your Squishmallows may lose shape after a wash and dry, all you need to do is give a little extra squish to get the shape back and your Squishmallow will be ready for more adventures!
**A member of the Squishmallow Squad has found the best luck with the following: put your Squishmallows in a pillowcase and tie it closed. Wash and dry your Squishmallow in the pillowcase and they should come out fluffy and good as new.
**Squishmallows may have an extra thread sticking out from the factory, this is rare but does occur. If you see a thread that is undone, do not pull out the thread, instead, cut it off as close to the seam as possible or consider hemming to prevent further unraveling.
For Palm Pals:
Palm Pals are *NOT* machine washable. You can only surface clean your Palm Pal.
