Please do not put ewan® in the washing machine as you will break his electronics. To clean please pull out the control pod from his tummy and wrap in a plastic bag to help protect it from splashes of water. While it is still out of his body, gently sponge clean ewan® with a minimum amount of warm soapy water and leave to dry. Pay special care when sponging off the area around the light at the front of ewan®. When ewan® is completely dry, take the plastic bag off the control pod and replace it back inside his tummy.
