Making Mr. Moo Look New Again with Lysol® Laundry Sanitizer

Being a parent comes with a lot of responsibilities. From making sure your little one is safe, well-fed, cared for, reaching their milestones, honing their skills, guiding their development, and the list goes on and on. There is no actual handbook for becoming the best mother or father you could ever be for your child. Every family and every kid is different. Meaning we handle everything differently. One thing that we all have in common is keeping our precious bundle of joy happy AND protected.

One thing I have learned from being a mother is that most babies eventually develop an attachment to a particular toy, stuffed animal, or even a blanket. This is what is often referred to as a child’s lovie. If you’re a veteran mom, you’d know very well that these toys are their “prized possession”. To my new and upcoming parents, like you, I was once clueless too and eventually found out first hand when our son Josiah King became so fond of Mr. Moo.

Well, in such a short time Mr. Moo had already gone into a lot of adventures. He traveled overseas, went on road trips, had been tossed, and even flung around. You can already guess that he has taken quite a beating and looks quite tattered and YES … yucky too! Except, Josiah doesn’t seem to mind at all because he loves Mr. Moo a lot. Obviously, I wondered what I can do to keep Mr. Moo from looking so worn out. Thankfully, Lysol started the Teddy Repair initiative giving parents the tools and means to help sanitize and repair stuffed toys!!!

A few days ago I went to a breakfast event with the Lysol team. I have learned so much about Lysol® Laundry Sanitizer, a one-of-a-kind product that is safe to use on washable fabric items and kills 99.9% of bacteria that regular detergents may leave behind (when used as directed). It was such a fun and informative event that genuinely opened my eyes to a lot of knowledge.

Contrary to popular belief, washing laundry (and even stuffed animals) with regular detergent in cold water DOES NOT kill all bacteria. What a scary thought right? This includes harmful bacteria that can cause illness like staph! Any parent would want to help protect their kid(s) from these infections!

Mr. Moo Looks New Again Thanks to Lysol® Laundry Sanitizer!

Which is also why I am super grateful for the Lysol® Laundry Sanitizer as it helps eliminate these sickness-and odor-causing bacteria. Definitely a significant help for us parents to making sure our babies are well protected. Our family couldn’t ask for more.

Have you tried the Lysol® Laundry Sanitizer yet? Ever since discovering this amazing product it’s been a part of our laundry routine, AND we no longer utilize the “sanitize” option from our washer that takes 10,000 years to finish! Just so you know, another thing to highlight and love is that it does NOT contain any bleach, so it is safe to use even on colored clothes, fabrics and stuffed toys!

    This is such a great idea! We all know how attached children are to their favorite toy. I still have my childhood stuffed toy – Snoopy! 🙂

  • Amber Myers

    This is awesome! When my kids were small, sometimes toys would break and I’d have no idea how to fix them. I love that this is around.

  • Nicole Anderson

    This is so cool! There have been many times I have had to repair my youngest’s “lovies” when he was little. They were these tiny blankets and one had a monkey head on the corner and the other had a puppy. He would not sleep or go anywhere without them!

  • Tara Pittman

    What a cool program. I would have loved this as a child to get my doll fixed.

  • Ola @ WanderWithOla

    Wow, the idea of repairing and sanitizing the stuffed animals is really creative. It’d be better than buying your kids a new toy, especially with the fact that lots of kids have a special bonding with their little creatures.

    It’s amazing to know that Lysol provides such technology for parents and their children to track the stuffed animals during every step of the repair process. Pretty cool! ~ Ola @ WanderWithOla

  • Brittany

    OMG this initiative is genius! We need to clean out stuffed animals….badly!!! Thanks for sharing

  • Krysten Quiles

    Okay this is awesome! I miss the day of stuffed animals. I betcha my nephew would be totally into this. Thanks!

  • brie

    That is such a cute company idea. How sweet, kids get to keep their stuffed animals a little longer.

  • Stacie

    I’ve been using their laundry sanitizer since it first came out. I saw it on the shelf and I was like, “I have to have this.” I love it! I have three kids, two dogs, and a husband, so I NEED to sanitize.

  • KishaRose

    Teddy repair is such a fun idea. As we all know teddy’s get a lot of love which leads to wear and tear. It looks like the Teddy’s get the best care.

    I love their product range and so gentle. They make a perfect choice to wash kids stuff toys.

  • Melanie Walsh

    This is bringing back the sweetest memories of when my kids were little and deeply attached to their teddy bears and other stuffed companions. Lysol is going to make some very happy kids with happy parents who can rest easy know the teddy bears are clean.

  • Sam

    This is such a great idea! What an awesome contest. Someone is going to be very lucky.

  • Enriqueta E Lemoine

    Angela you kill me with all the cuteness and awesome teddy repair initiative! How cool is this?


    Awww what a cute and fun idea. When my daughter was little she was so attached to her “bunny” that I bought 3 of them and rotated them to keep them cleaned and repaired without her freaking out.

  • Krista

    This is such a cute idea. I have a stuffed mouse that has been through 3 generations. My toddler loves it and takes it everywhere but it could definitely use a good cleaning.

  • Kerrie Mendoza

    What an amazing initiative! Think of the headaches and toddler meltdowns that can be avoided if we’re able to do this at home!

  • Brianne Tursi Manz

    A couple of my kids went through the stuffed animal phase for several years. I wish this were available when they were little. It would have saved us all a lot of tears!

  • Mama to 6 Blessings

    Awe what a great idea! My kids do not have a special teddy bear but they uave other stuffed animals that have seen better days. It’s like a bear makeover!

  • SHerry

    This is a product I would have loved to have had when my daughter was young. She had a stuffed white unicorn named Noney that took a beating. He was washed and restuffed so many times. We now have him packed away in a memory box.

  • Stefani Tolson

    One of my daughter’s had an attachment to a little blanket. She had to take it everywhere and would not like when it had to be washed.

  • Cristina Petrini

    Important more than ever to sanitize the clothes because not only must they be clean, but also safe for our health!

  • Catalina

    Thanks for these hacks. It’s so important to find the right product for our kids!

  • Lynda Hogan

    I’ve never seen Lysol here in Japan. I’m going to do a bit of research and see if there is anywhere I can source it. With four young kids, I’ve quite a few teddies that could do with a Lysol spin!!

  • Brianne Tursi Manz

    Teddy repair is such a neat idea. Teddy’s get a lot of love and will eventually break down. What a great way to care for the bear!

  • Sarah Bailey

    This sounds like some great washing powder, I have to admit it is one of those things I am always looking for. Something which cleans yet is still kind and caring.

  • DeeDee Weber

    This is great to know! I always thought you couldn’t wash them!

    Hey, I did not realize toys could have bacteria and they are not washed properly with normal detergent. I will have to wash my toys now with this product.

  • AMY

    Been using Lysol even before and I can say that it helps me so much with my cleaning task

  • vicky hallnewman

    My daughter was really sick recently and I was boiling the clothes to make the virus go away and I wondered if it really worked. It’s scary to think it might not have done. I need the laundry sanitizer

  • Heather

    This is really cool. Such a great way to keep those stuffed animals clean and around for many years to come!

  • Annemarie LeBlanc

    I am glad you used Lysol Laundry Sanitzer. That would give peace of mind that our kids’ stuffed animals are bacteria free!

  • Dalene Ekirapa

    Isn’t that just so amazing!? It’s so nice when as a parent, you can count on a detergent like Lysol for the safety of your kid since it perfectly sanitizes. With how much kids can loved toys, this would be a must-have for parents.

  • Bella and Dawn at Dear Mummy Blog

    What a great way to clean him! I’m still very attached to my favourite teddy!

  • Yeah Lifestyle

    I was shocked to read that washing stuffed animals with regular detergent in cold water does not kill all bacteria as that is what I have been doing. So glad I found your post and learnt about lysol.

  • Alexandra Cook
