I would find 3 new stuffed fish and replace the current ones.

Failing that, I would use a steamer.

Are they not removable from the mobile itself? I’m sure they are on hooks or something and if you take them off just toss them in the laundry in a lingerie bag.

ETA- if not on hooks it’s probably just a knot in the string through a hole. Untie the knot and re-tie once clean. Otherwise you could probably “sponge bath” it with lysol wipes (or organic alternative).

I think steam is the only thing you could use that wouldn’t eat away at the fabric or be toxic.

Honestly, plush toys aren’t meant to be disinfected. Some can be put in the washing machine (doesn’t disinfect, only cleans) but most can’t. Is your baby really going to be touching the mobile? Don’t they just look at them?

Steam setting in your dryer? I know it’s not the same but I had really bad allergies when I was little… We would put all my stuffed animals in the freezer to freeze the dust mites then into the dryer. Some went into the washer as well. Good luck!
