Teddy bear care and cleansing might not be something you thought about before. But it’s something that takes a few thoughts and time if you always want your Hermann Bears to look their best and remain in good health.
Whether you have modern bears made from the synthesis of the Hermann Bears, both need to be cleaned on a regular basis.
What could damage your teddy bears?
Unfortunately, the fur colour fades over time if you leave your bear by the window or under the direct sunlight. It’s a shame that your Bears will look shabby.
Yes good old dust and dirt! This makes your Hermann Bears turn a pretty grubby grey hue and, if not purged, it is grained to such a degree that no washing will take your bear back to full glory.
Too much of the handling can weaken and tear the material as much as we love and want to hold the bears. Gelenks can also get loose, and yikes can even fall off limbs in some cases.
Insects, unfortunately, like to make a home with warm, dark fabrics and stuffing Hermann Bears is a perfect home. Verify that there are any signs of the egg lying around the eyes or paw pads in older bären. Treat the correct insecticide before cleaning if there are signs of infestations. This is an important part of animal treatment for teddy bears.
How is your bear cleaned?
Hermann bears treatment should include regular cleaning of your teddy bear, say weekly or quarterly, avoid building up of dirt.
- The bear should be brushed gently with a soft brush. Make sure you get into cracks and joints where dust can get worse. The brushing also keeps the bears at their best. There can also be a gentle vacuum.
- New plastic bears are designed to be washed gently by hand. However, never immerse the bear in water, but sponge the fur lightly. Everything is possible although some modern teddy bears may be immersed or even washed into the washing machine.
- Dry your bear on the line in a drying bag. When the Hermann bears are picked up through the nose, the tissue weakens and deforms the bear. It’s not too fun for the cat, either.
- Grease can be cleaned with a bran bath on older bears, in particular, those made of Mohair. Sit in a plastic bag and fill your bears with bran (available from health food shops). Stick into the fur and brush with the stiff natural bristled brush. Clean any clothes, if you are vintage items your bear is clothed with a mild detergent and a hand wash.
Secure Your Teddy:
- Storing bears in a jumper could keep your bear out of cleanliness.
- Your bear dressing protects against the fading of the covering parts. This is confirmed by many old toys, and antique teddy bears with their original bright colour can often be seen on their main body.
- When necessary, keep the Hermann bears out of sunlight. Direct sunlight can affect your bear colour even across a room, causing it to fade. Just remember to close the curtains in the sunny weather
