Mascot Care Instructions
Our mascots are constructed of high-quality materials, designed to last
for many years when properly cared for. Please take note of the following
tips and instructions.
Wearing your mascot:
Our mascots are made of soft and huggable fabrics. To avoid wearing
and matting of the fur, do not kneel or lay down in the costume.
perform gymnastics while wearing the mascot costume. Always wear
the adjustable chin strap found on the inside of the mascot head
to prevent the head from tumbling off.
Cleaning your mascot suit:
The fur suits only are machine-washable. Wash them only in cold
or warm water – never hot - using any standard detergent
and fabric softener in the rinse cycle. Dry your mascot on the
AIR CYCLE only. Using any heat in the drying process will shrink
and mat the fur, which will ruin the costume. After running your
mascot through the air cycle, hang it up in a warm, dry room
to finish drying overnight. The suits can be dry-cleaned, but
again, they CANNOT go through the heat cycle. We recommend washing
over dry-cleaning. Deluxe and spat feet CANNOT be dry-cleaned
but can be cleaned in the washer using the same method as above.
Cleaning your mascot head and feet:
Brush your mascot head and feet regularly with a common hair brush
or a pet grooming brush with tiny wire bristles. This will keep
your mascot looking new and remove any loose dirt. Spot clean
your mascot using any mild detergent and a wash cloth or a spray
carpet cleaner. In the event your mascot head or feet needs to
be cleaned in its entirety, dampen the head or feet with a wet
cloth and use a mild detergent. Never soak or immerse the head
in water. Dip a cloth or soft-bristled brush into the detergent
and brush the head or feet, working up a lather over the entire
surface. Rinse all of the detergent from the head or feet with
conservative amounts of water and a brush. After rinsing, vacuum
the water from the head or feet using a wet/dry vacuum cleaner.
Place head or feet in a warm dry area overnight to finish drying
completely. Brush the fur to make it look as good as new.
Storing your mascot:
When storing your mascot for a long period of time, cover it with
a dry-cleaning bag or plastic and hang it. We recommend placing
dryer sheets inside the mascot costume to keep it smelling fresh.
Never store your mascot in a mascot carrying case.
