My Laundry Question

How do you clean plush puppets?

Share a Little Background Info

My adult son wants to pass his puppet collection down to his baby.

Unfortuantely, they've been stored in the basement and seem musty. How can we clean them? There are 40 or so in all, and most are like stuffed animals, without all the stuffing. We called a local drycleaner, and they said they don't take care of them. Can you dry clean at home or ??? thank you for any suggestions.
