hello, dear bear people:),
Recently I got into vintage/antique bears and I still need some know-how. I have successfully surface cleaned old mohair bears with fur still on, but now I have a sorry little ted here, who is indeed very, very dirty including what looks like a coffee stain. He is made of plush, so he lost most of his fur, but the banking is nice and solid, no tears, no precariously thin spots. Now he's resting in the freezer and I am wondering about the next steps: how do I clean him without damaging whatever is left of his teddy hair? tips will be greatly appreciated. Promise to send a before/after pic:)
