One must not separate one’s child from their comforters in any old way. Children drag their teddy bears everywhere with them and take with them filth and grime which you would undoubtedly like to get rid of. One must however be careful how one washes it : the comforter is very special and it must not be mishandled!
In order to preserve the original softness of the teddy bear one must hand wash it at a low temperature. But if you wish to wash the teddy bear in the washing machine you can protect it from wear and tear by placing it into a pillowcase before placing it into the machine.
Despite having been washed the teddy bear will remain as soft as ever!
