Default Drying stuffed toys

So I dropped a bottle of liquid laundry soap on the floor. The bottle broke and it went everywhere, including on some of my stuffed toys (which I am very attached to!).

I have soaked them in order to clean them from soap, but due to the filling I know I can't throw them in the tumble dryer. one of them is stuffed with those small balls that I have no clue what is called in english and the other probably has regular plush toy filling.

So now I pray the best I can, that someone on here can tell me how to dry them without them getting moldy or otherwise destroyed

Not the tumble dryer otherwise they could melt. Perhaps the best thing is to hang them up outside and let them dry naturally. Drying inside could, as you say, mean they go mouldy.

I live in an apartment complex and im not allowed to dry anything outside. Would putting them in the washing machine and centrifuge them help?
I know you said 'no tumble drying' but what about tumbledrying on the lowest heat possible? We have a whool program (and maybe a program with completely cold air too) so I thought that might be a possibility, but i wouldnt ever do it without anyone else telling me it might work

I would not take the risk with the tumble dryer as the plastic beads might melt.
Can you hang them up by an open window in the daytime so there is some air circulating to help them dry?

I will try that tomorrow. For now i have centrifuged them (i still dont know if 'centrifuge' is a verb lol) and hung them to dry inside. When the sun is up and i wont be swarmed with bugs i will hang them in the window. Thank you so much! I nearly tossed them in the tumble dryer! You have saved me tears coco

Yes centrifuge would help. Hope it works tomorrow!
