When you're doing your housecleaning, don't overlook Teddy and his buddies. Teddy Needs A Bath brings stuffed animals through the washer and dryer clean as new and looking fresh - and safe from dust mites. Dust mites build up in stuffed animals just like in pillows and mattresses, and elimination of dust mites is important because dust mite allergen can be a contributing factor to eczema or asthma flare-ups. The 100% cotton bag keeps well-loved animals from snagging or becoming misshapen during washing. Your child will love for Teddy to have a bath in this cute 20 inch x 22 inch bag. 3 reasons why Teddy Needs a Bath! should be in your home. #1 Health -The National Allergy Association recommends washing your child's/pet's stuffed toys once a month to prevent the spread of germs and dust mites. Studies have been done to show that washing a stuffed toy in hot water and then drying it in hot air effectively kills harmful bacteria and dust mites. Studies have also shown that exposing your children to dust mites at an early age can cause the onset of Asthma. Households have been over-looking stuffed animals when cleaning their homes and nurseries for centuries. Teddy Needs a Bath! aims to bring awareness to the importance of germ and dust free stuffed toys! #2 The Environment - Now, more than ever, we are all aware of the negative effects we are having on this planet. Teddy Needs a Bath! is a great way to reduce the amount of toys being thrown out, facilitate the idea of reusing the toys we have, or washing them and recycling to a new owner. #3 Save Money - In the past, it may have seemed easier to just discard a dirty stuffed toy and replace it with a new one. But in these times of over-spending we have learned how to cut back on unnecessary purchases. Teddy Needs a Bath! makes toys look, feel and smell brand new, eliminating the need for new toys.

Works as well as advertised. I saw it first on Shark Tank, but Amazon has a much better price. Very well made, high quality materials. If I had had one of these years ago, the panda that my sister gave me would not have gotten "cataracts"--black eyes turned white from beating on the drum of the dryer. When really full, it is hard to stuff in my X-large top-loading washer because of the central agitator, and needs something on the other side to balance the load. Drying is slow, but my dryer is ancient and not long on efficiency anyway. So for both, it works best when not stuffed too full.
**I just reviewed the dryer sheets, but also spoke about this product, so I am just going to copy/paste that review below: I bought this along with the Teddy Needs A Bath product when it aired on ABC's Shark Tank. I do really like the Teddy Needs A Bath Bag; it is nicer than any other garment bag that I have, and I often use it to wash bras etc., because it is just so much nicer, but these dryer sheets are just okay. I like that they do have a little scent as opposed to the Bounce Free ones I usually use due to my DD's sensitive skin. I only use these when washing her blanket and bunny or other stuffed animals, so although we havent noticed it to cause any skin irritations, I can't be totally sure because usually clothes aren't mixed in. I personally don't really think these smell like cotton candy. I'm not sure what they smell like, and it's not a bad smell, but if I wasn't told they were cotton candy that's definitely not what would come to mind. On Shark Tank, there...
I've owned/used this bag intermittently for the past two or so years, and as someone who has stuffed friends that like to be kept clean and fresh, I swear by it! It's always my go-to for washing stuffed animals in the washing machine, and it's saved my favorite friends a great deal of wear and tear: they're less likely to become "linty," their fuzz less likely to suffer "dryer burn," and their plastic eyes don't get as "scuffed" as they would without the protection this bag affords. The elastic strap that protects the zipper and holds it in place is a nice touch, too-keeps the plushies from "getting loose" during washing/drying, and prolongs the life of the zipper.
My bag now has maybe one or two tiny holes after two years of heavy use, but that is to be expected, and it is otherwise very durable. I've been considering investing in another TNaB bag, but cost is prohibitive at present. I also agree with the other reviewers that a pillowcase...
