Beautiful new graphics from Vulli on how to clean Sophie La Girafe
It's important to clean your Sophie la girafe correctly, as she's made of 100% natural rubber. We at Vulli have done a little graphic to help you...
Also, Dr. Ferda Arca-Sedda PhD from University of Pierre at Marie Curie provided the following statement:
"Sophie the Giraffe is safe, it is unlikely that the mold growing inside Sophie is coming from saliva, since it is known that saliva is acidic and contains several enzymes like amylase, pepsin, lipase that play a role in breaking down food particles. In addition, saliva contains antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti-fungal enzymes that kill bacteria, microbes and fungus. The mold inside Sophie comes from submerging and washing Sophie with water and not from saliva. I confirm that cleaning Sophie with a damp cloth is more than sufficient to keep it safe."
