Not so Happy Lion
I was out the other day and made a stop at a yard sale. There, right out front, was this lion chair.
Knowing Happy Bear won't last forever (shhh don't tell him) I picked it up.
While I was looking him over I noticed that he smelled a bit like Fabreeze. I figured the previous owner wanted to freshen him up a bit and didn't think much of it. I put him in my car and drove home.
I made a few stops along the way, and in the process, I closed up my car thinking it was going to rain. When I came back to my car after a stop the smell was nearly overwhelming.
I have left Happy Lion out now for a week. First airing out in my car (I have a convertible, I must have looked silly with him buckled in the passenger seat) and now being outside on the deck for two days. The smell is still there.
Anyone know if you can machine wash these types of things? I'm guessing at this point it is the only thing I can do to salvage him.
If you have any ideas, I'm open to suggestions.
