Frequently Asked Questions
How often should you clean kids' toys?
Most toys should be cleaned weekly, but baby toys (which are often put into mouths) should be cleaned every one to two days. If your kids have a playdate, toys should be cleaned immediately afterwards. And if your child is sick, it's important to clean and disinfect toys thoroughly when they've recovered.
How do you clean kids' toys?
Cleaning steps for toys varies depending on the type of toy, so it's recommended to follow these guidelines:
- Solid plastic toys can go in the top rack of your dishwasher. Select the normal or sanitizing cycle and heated dry. If anything comes out still wet, allow it to completely dry before letting your child play with it again.
- You can also use Clorox or Lysol wipes to clean plastic toys , or a cloth wet with a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution. Alternatively, you can also soak them in a mix of a half cup of chlorine bleach and one gallon of water. If you opt for one of these methods, once the toys are dry, rinse them and let them air dry again before giving them back to your child.
- If washing stuffed animals, check the care label first. If they're colorfast and okay to be washed in the washing machine, tuck them into a pillowcase and knot the top to protect them. Wash on the most gentle cycle you have, with warm water and a slow spin. You can then dry the toys in the dryer (leave them in the pillowcase) on a low-heat setting.
- If plush toys can't be washed by conventional means, wipe it down with a warm sudsy solution. Rinse with a cloth dipped in warm water. Allow the toy to air dry, or you can use your hair dryer on low heat.
- Electronic toys can be cleaned with a disinfectant wipe , an alcohol wipe, or a cloth dipped in a mix of four teaspoons of chlorine bleach to one quarter cup of water. Make sure the toy remains wet for five to ten minutes, then let it air dry. If it's something your child will stick in their mouth, wipe it down with a damp, clean cloth and let it air dry again.
