What parent testers had to say:
My son just got over a serious bout of Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease and we were just about to throw in the towel and discard all of his stuffed toys that had be contaminated by this virus. Then this testing opportunity came along for Gund's Teddy needs a Bath product. The tester came with three boxes. The larger box contained a bag and the other two boxes contained fabric sheets. All of the boxes were very well presented and would definitely be something that caught my attention on store shelves. We were very hesitant on using this product on one particular teddy bear that my wife has kept for the last 10 years that belonged to her deceased brother. It is the only piece of him that she still has. After washing all of my son's toys using this product, my wife felt fairly confident that nothing was going to happen to her bear. We put it through the wash and then the dryer. It came out perfect. Smelled nice and clean and NO DAMAGE!!!! My wife actually cried when we pulled it out of the wash because she now knows that this bear can be in our family for years to come. I would highly recommend this product to all parents. You never know when you will need something like this and it saves a fortune on toys that you don't have to replace because of contamination after a sickness. I am so glad I have been introduced to this product and I will most definitely recommend it to everyone that I know....including everyone that is reading this review. You will not regret your purchase!!!!! Thanks PTPA and THANK YOU Gund for making such a useful product at a very reasonable price!
I have to admit that I was skeptical when I started this load of laundry - but the stuffies came out clean and smelling wonderful since I also added the cotton candy dryer sheet in the bag. No more harsh detergents on babies or kids stuffed animals.
