Every baby has a lot of toys at home. Are the baby toys that babies have fun playing with really clean and hygienic? What about their disinfection situation? After investigation and research by relevant departments, it was found that the disinfection situation of baby toys is not optimistic. Many parents do not pay attention to the cleaning of toys, and some have never even sterilized their baby’s toys. Next, let’s learn together how to thoroughly sterilize the toys that the baby has played with.
1. Plastic toys
Put plastic toys without batteries in water. Pour in bleach to dilute and soak for about 30 minutes. Use a brush to scrub the dirty part, then rinse with clean water. Finally wipe the toy clean with a clean cloth. Then put it in a clean toy box for storage. Because the concentration of disinfectant is very low, you only need to rinse it once with clean water after soaking. If you don’t like the smell of disinfectant, or your baby’s skin is very fragile, you can rinse it several times with clean water. Then put it in a clean place to dry.
2. Cloth toys
Soak toys in diluted bleach water for 30 minutes before washing. Then use a brush to clean the stained area. Then put the cloth toys in the laundry bag. Then proceed with the normal laundry program. In addition, be sure to read the washing instructions clearly before washing, so as to avoid the deformation of the doll or the phenomenon of pilling after entering the water.
3. Plush toys
Since the plush toy is very easy to deform after washing, we can gently wipe it with a towel disinfectant, and then wipe it again with water. Bring it out to the sun often. In addition, sending it to the laundromat for dry cleaning is also a good option. If it is a detachable plush toy, you can wash it in a washing machine after disassembling it.
4. Wooden toys
Use baby oil to wipe or wipe wooden toys with diluted alcohol or alcohol swabs, then wipe again with a dry cloth. There is another point to pay special attention to. Because wooden toys are made of wood, they are very prone to moisture and borers. So wooden toys cannot be washed. Therefore, choosing baby oil to wipe is a very good choice.
