Washing a Poseable Teddy Bear

Can I wash/dry a poseable teddy bear? If so, how? My dd received one that is in dire need of a "bath". Thank you in advance for any help on this.

I used to wash my sons soft toys some of which were poseable by placing them in a pillowslip and tying it with some string before placing them in the washing machine on a delicate wash.

I never had a problem with them, I hope this works for you.

Janice, buy mesh laundry bags (Dollar tree 3/$1.00). Put a stuffed toy in each bag. Wash in cold water on gentle cycle. Take out of bag and fluff on LOW heat for about 3 minutes then set out to dry. (I let it set for about a week to make sure it's dry inside--outside would probably be better.) When I go to yard sales, I buy the nicest ones, they're really cheap and do this always. It works great and will look brand new.
