Cleaning and disinfecting toys

If you have children in your home, you probably have more than a few bins filled with toys. It's important that these toys get cleaned and disinfected regularly, to prevent germs from spreading in your home and to keep your little ones healthy. We've put together some great tips for cleaning all kinds of toys:

  • To clean small, non battery-operated toys, simply place them in the dishwasher and run a regular cycle. This will clean and disinfect a large quantity of toys in a short period of time.

  • For bigger toys, disinfect them with a basic bleach solution. Using a large bucket, or even the bathtub, mix cup of bleach with a gallon of water and let the toys soak for 5-10 minutes. Rinse with water and then air dry.

  • If toys have batteries and cannot be soaked in water, use a towel to wipe them with the bleach solution. Rinse by wiping down a second time with a water-wet towel.

  • For fabric toys, blankets, and stuffed animals, wash them in the laundry with hot water.
