My daughter loves her stuffed white kitty cats. She sleeps with them and carries them around everywhere by the tail. Sometimes there is a cat in each hand as she runs around the house. It is quite a cute sight.
Since the dryer is the issue, these lovely little guys air dry. Problem solved, and I can report with confidence that your child's stuffed animals can be washed in a washer even with these pellets. And yes...I did show you my laundry!
