A bit of a first world problem, but...DD had a productive lunch time nap. When I checked on her she was laying down in bed. What I didn't know was that she had the belt to her good dress in her bed and chewed it so that it has bite marks all the length of it. It's polyurethane - is there anything I can do to try and make it smoother again. Would an iron help or would it just melt or burn it? It's not like I can just go out and buy another belt as this one came with the dress and she's only worn it once and it was an expensive one. So upset with her as this is just a long string of things that she is constantly doing...and her second belt - the last one she did this to had to be thrown out.

Can you keep all belts out of arms reach or not put them on her?

if you try to iron it put something between the belt and the iron to prevent scorching. a damp hankie or such. sometimes a good soaking and then lie flat to dry,? that might work. good luck. marie.

Her older brothers were never this destructive. DH and I could rattle off several things of late that she's destroyed in a way.
I'm afraid that the iron may melt the belt - the inside is hardly marked, but the shiny outside part is quite a mess.
How would hot water go with the soaking @SuperGranny?
Yes - I am going to have to watch her like a hawk and move where I keep her belts! The sound of her older brother playing with Duplo in his room during rest time masked her mission. When I checked on her she was in bed!

hi little ted. depends on what the fabric is? some belts can have a plastic inside lining ? 'the shiny outside' part,?? I don't know what that would be?? I would carefully just use some warm water, or only a cool iron. is it possible to wear the belt backwards, so the wrecked part is on the inside?? marie.
