How to Deodorize Stuffed Animals

Thursday night Phoebe complained that Bedtime Beara smelled funny because she had been in a bag along with swim goggles. I really didn't feel like doing the laundry (again) so I suggested we try using baking soda, hoping it would absorb the odor. She put her bear in a Ziploc bag along with about five heaping tablespoons of baking soda. Giving the bag a shake, Phoebe pretended Beara was playing in the snow, then agreed to "marinate" her overnight. I didn't know if it would actually work but my kid seemed satisfied that we took some sort of action.

When Phoebs got home from school Friday afternoon, we dusted Beara off and her mom gave her the sniff test. Hurray! It worked! Now there's a line of stuffed animals waiting to be deodorized. Better stock up on baking soda.
