The old fashioned way: wash by hand and dry in the sun. Use Dawn dish detergent, because it’s safe for animals if there’s any residue, plus it really is the best for handling greasy dirt (there’s a reason that’s what’s used when animals are cleaned up after oil spills). Soak the toys in a bucket of soapy water, agitate them in the water a bit to get the soapy water in there really good, rinse really well with the hose and wring them out (if they’re fabric) and shake them really well (if they’re plastic). Then put them in the sun for a day to dry them.

Do NOT put them in your dryer, ever – you can ruin your dryer drying plush toys. 

They won’t be spotless or anything, but they won’t be gross anymore.

by hand. with soap or detergent thats free of dies. Something you’d use to wash baby clothes. The washer works sometimes but after 2 trips through the washer her favorite toy has lost its ability to squeak. She’s very sad.

Embarassed… um I don’t.  By the time they’re dirty, they’re also ripped to shreds so I just pitch them.

I always wash by hand and let them air dry.

I usually put them in the washer on the delicate cycle and then air dry.

I have a fancy steam dryer with a sanitize cycle, I use that. But obviously it’s not an option for everyone!
