It's no surprise that bathtub toys are prone to super amounts of icky mold that is harmful to children if digested. Here's an excellent way to clean tub toys, in a safe and environmentally-friendly way.
- 2 cups apple cider vinegar (can substitute white vinegar if needed)
- .5L warm water (filtered is best)
- 2 foaming denture cleansing tablets
1Mix vinegar and water in a plastic bucket.
2Add toys. If they are not covered, add more vinegar and warm water.
3Weight down floating toys if possible.
4Soak toys overnight.
5After toys have soaked, scrub with a bristle cleaning brush.
6Rinse thoroughly with clean water.
7If the vinegar soak does not remove all the mold, use another step.
8Put the toys in another bucket, and cover with warm water.
9Add denture tablets. Allow to soak overnight.
