to clean kid's bath toys
Contrary to popular
belief, bath toys don't think clean simply because they are
in the bath everyday. Mildew can form in the site squeaky
bath toys, such as the ones that spit water or squeaks, such
as your typical rubber ducky. Because the water gets trapped
inside bacteria and mildew can form. And when your child squeezes
them, it can expel the bacteria and mildew right into the
bath water. Yuck!
If you cannot afford
to replace these types of bath toys on a monthly basis, you
can clean them yourself. In a large bowl or bucket, use half
cup of plain white vinegar for every gallon of water you use.
Pop the toys in the water, making sure to squeeze each toy
in a few times so that the cleaning solution gets inside,
and you have helped force out the bacteria and mildew.
Allow to soak for
10 to 15 minutes, then give them a gentle scrub. Place them
on a dry dish towel to dry.
