1) If the busy book is only slightly dirty, you may clean with a lint roller. Do be gentle!
2) You may also wipe with a slightly moist cloth soaked in mild detergent or mild liquid hand wash and water of approximately 30c. Do not rub the book.
3) For deeper cleaning, lightly press book in warm (30c) soapy water (or mild detergent), releasing bubbles. Rinse thoroughly. Do not leave any soap behind. Lightly press on the book to release water, and lightly press the pages/book between 2 towels to drain water. Do not wring the book. Lay on a rack in a well ventilated spot (no direct sunlight) to air dry for at least 12 hours or until completely dry.
NOTE: Do not machine wash, dry clean, soak, rub, squeeze or wring the book and pages, or dry in heat or direct sunlight. Ensure the sink where you wash and the area where you dry is clean so your books won't pick up new stains. When in doubt, it is recommended to use gentler methods to clean the book (i.e. use a lint roller or with a damp cloth).
My daughter enjoys this book alot! she spent a great amount of time on this book! Great for a long car ride as it kept her super busy :)
My son enjoys this book a lot! Totally surprised us that he can play so well once we got this book. Can’t wait to get more busy book for him!
It took my 10 month old some time to enjoy playing with it , parental guidance is of course needed to show them how to take out the Velcro parts etc but when he got the hang of it , he loved it! It is SUPER well made ! Well worth the money !
