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.
