Here is a care guide to keep your fursuit parts looking brand new!
The first and most important part to keeping clean and looking tidy is keeping your suit parts brushed at all times!
When the parts do become dirty, here is how you wash them:
Take a wet cloth or toothbrush and use bleach free washing detergent to spot wash all the dirty parts. Getting the head wet is alright as long as it is completely dried afterward. Do not get the eyes wet!
Fill a bathtub with luke warm water and bleach free washing detergent and soak. Remove all digigrade padding for a faster dry time. Hand scrub all areas of the suit and squeeze the water out. Empty the tub and fill it once again with cold water and rinse, then lay it flat down on towels to dry.
These items can be washed in a tub the same as the bodysuit, these parts will have foam/stuffing in them so they will be heavier and will dry slower!
After doing an in depth fullbody brush, it's best to lay out some towels and set your parts on them to dry. I do not prefer hanging your bodysuit, as doing so may lead to minor stretching. The fur becomes extremely heavy when wet and could droop your suit if hung on a hanger.
When you are drying your fursuit parts, brush them every few hours until dry. This ensures that the fur looks it's best!
• Machine Wash
You can wash your fur parts in the washing machine, as long as you use EXTRA care. Find a setting that does not use any hot water or heat. Every part can go in except for the head, and you should only use bleach free detergent. Make sure to use the "delicate" cycle as to not harm your fursuit.
Using a dryer can help your suit dry faster but also can be deadly if put on the wrong setting. Make sure there is no heat, and that the setting is on delicate.
Unfortunately nothing lasts forever, so that means some maintenance might need to be done. Most seams can be repaired with a sewing needle or a hot glue gun, those can be found at any dollar store! If there are any repairs you can not fix, or do not know how, you can send the item back to me and I will repair it for a small fee. (Shipping must be paid for both sending and returning)
Some people choose to have an emergency sewing/repair kit, dog/cat brush, and fursuit spray with them or on their handler at all times. These items are good to have and are encouraged! If you purchase a minimum of two fursuit items, then a free brush and fursuit spray comes complimentary!
