Asthma Friendly Toys

Do you have a kiddo with asthma? If you do then you understand how great it is to find stuffed toys that are filled with fibers that don't aggravate asthma.

According to the website these are the instructions for taking care of these neat stuffed toys:

1. Freeze. Place toy inside a freezer bag, then place in freezer for 24 hours.
2. Wash/Dry. Machine wash warm, delicate cycle/tumble dry high.
Do not use bleach or fabric softener. Recommend use of fabric bag for
wash/dry cycle and allow toy to cool before giving toy to child.
3. Cuddle with confidence.
4. Repeat this process every certain number of weeks, as specifically directed for each toy.

You can find these "Asthma Friendly" toys at Kids Preferred. Neat!

What does freezing the item do? Does it make any dust come out easier when it gets washed? Thanks for letting me know about asthma free toys, I never heard of them before.

(and thanks for your guess at the number of marbles).
