How to clean your fluffies
We’re always asked “How do you clean your fluffies?!”
Winter season is coming up quick, and we all know what that means…RAIN: your fluffy leg warmer’s worst enemy. Rain equals mud, and mud equals a sad and dirty death for your beautiful fluffies. Or does it…? This blog post is dedicated to all you girls who absolutely dread that after-rave bummer of realizing while you were dancing your cute little butt off, your fluffies suffered the dire consequences. But not to fear! Because I have come up with a fool-proof way to bring your fluffies back from the dead, so they can live to rage it with you for many more parties to come. Welcome to Fluffy Revival 101 – and don’t worry, no furry leg warmers were harmed in the making of this tutorial (okay maybe a little, but it’s for a good cause right?).
STEP 1: DIRTY FLUFFIES
Rain or not, your fluffies ARE going to get dirty. So of course, we must start this tutorial with dirty sad fluffies.
Here’s a closeup of these badboys
STEP 2: WASHING MACHINE
Contrary to popular belief you CAN put your fluffies in the washing machine. When companies tell you that their fluffs are “Delicately hand-made” and that they need the delicate cycle to be washed it’s just code for “our fluffies are cheap,” so don’t be fooled! If your fluffies are made properly they will NOT fall apart in the washing machine. If they can handle you raving all night long, what makes tossing it in the washing machine any different? I threw mine right into the washing machine mud and all, but if you have a lot of leaves and sticks in your fluffies I would suggest brushing them out a bit.
You can use your normal detergent, either liquid or powder (really any detergent that doesn’t have bleach in it).
Wash them on a regular setting, in cold or warm water.
STEP 3: BRUSH OUT YOUR FLUFFIES
As soon as your fluffies are finished washing, get a standard hair brush.
Find a clean surface, and starting from the top of the fluffies brush out the fur in short strokes to get all the tangles out.
Continue brushing to the bottom of the fluffies. Be patient, and fairly gentle – treat the fur like you would the hair on your own head. You can also spray some de-tangler in the fur to speed up the brushing process as well (doing this also doubles as a way to make them smell nice).
STEP 4: HANG DRY
Hang your fluffies up to air dry. I like to use a pants hanger, but if you have an outdoor clothesline you can hang it there too.
STEP 5: BRUSH OUT YOUR FLUFFIES, AGAIN
Once your fluffies are nice and dry, you’ll have to brush them out one more time to really bring them back to 100%. Start from the top like before, brushing in short strokes.
Brush out the sides, and all the way to the bottom. The fur might seem pretty matted from air drying, but keep brushing them out I PROMISE you they will fluff up again! Just keep brushing…Just keep brushing…..
STEP 6: ENJOY YOUR LIKE-NEW FLUFFIES!
Your fluffies will now be as good as new, and ready to rage with you again (yay)!
