Spa Day for Lamby

Lamby Tichy is Grandma's childhood lovey that Amalia found on her last visit! Great-Grandpa brought Lamby back from Australia for Grandma when she was a little girl.  Great-Grandpa was a famous heart surgeon and he travelled to do his job.

Lamby was long adored, but spent a bit too much time in the attic.

Lamby needed a bath, but was far too delicate to unstuff and wash so instead we used a dry foam method!

You can make your own foam with 1 cup of water and 2T mild dish soap and whizz it in the blender. Amalia says you might want to plug your ears, 'but it's hard if you also want to turn on the blender.'

Once you have your foam, use a soft tooth brush to gently massage the foam into the fur, and then wipe the fur clean with a washcloth.

Shiny clean, Lamby is now part of our collection - thank you, Grandma and Great Grandpa!
