The Washing of Kanga

Note: For instructions on how to wash your plush properly, go to Capt Packrat's What is a plushie?.

Before
The "Before" picture, although the bucket is portent of what is to come.

Wash
After washing, using a small amount of detergent mixed in a bucket of warm water.

Rinse
After rinsing, using cold water. Bear in mind that I had the Australian summer to help me dry her.

Drying
Drying...

Drying
...And Drying. I had to stagger the drying out over two days of unsettled wheather. Her tail took the longest to dry, hence this undignified position. I confess I also used a hair dryer to help the process along even though you're not supposed to. I kept it on a lower setting and didn't focus the heat on any one area for too long.

After
The finished product! You probably can't see much difference, but her fur feels much softer now.
