    How can I treat soft toys? Will Nuvan strips in a sealed bag work. I was thinking of using the dryer at high heat but I dont know if the core (middle section) of some the bigger soft toys will be heated. Any inputs?

    Packtites work and so a hot dryer should also work. It will probably take longer than the 30 minutes we usually recommend for clothing which starts out dry.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Thanks nobugs. I just ran it for 90 minutes in my dryer but I am thinking I will just use nuvan strips for all of these for 14 days. Leave it to air out for another 14 days before I give it to my 4 year old again. Is that hazardous even if I air out for 14 days?

    I would check with P Bello to be sure -- he is the resident expert on DDVP. You can searching r his posts tagged DDVP or Nuvan, and send him a private message if you don't find the information you need.

    I would think a cycle through the washing machine would probably help after being treated with nuvan.
