When you have a baby, cleaning the house is essential. However, you need to consider other things that need to be cleaned. His toys, grabbing them every day, it’s good to be washed and disinfected regularly.
Here is how long and with what substances you can clean them, depending on their material.
Ingredients that you need
To clean the toys, you need:
– Vinegar and distilled water
– 4 tablespoons of baking soda in 250 ml of water
– Boiled water for resistant toys
– Bio cleaners
It is indicated that the first disinfection to take place immediately after purchase. It is not known under what conditions they were kept in the store, where they fell and how many people laid hands on them.
Then, they should be cleaned in the following situations:
– They become visibly soiled
– If other children have played with them, such as guests
– If little or other family members are sick
– Apart from the above, wash and disinfect toys once a week.
Plush toys can be fed into the washing machine. To protect yourself, use a net. I recommend using natural detergents. Those familiar toys give various chemicals surface. To destroy the layer of dust plush toys, freeze them in freezer for 24 hours. This procedure is especially important for children who suffer from asthma or other respiratory conditions.
Also, they are cleaned different depending on the material from which they are made. Thus, the unfinished wood should be wiped with a damp sponge, then with a dry, lint-free cloth.
If you’re worried about bacteria, enter the toy in the microwave for 30 seconds. The heat will kill foreign bodies that have migrated inward because, unlike plastic, wood is “permeable” to the bacteria, allowing them to get inside. Once or twice a year polish unfinished wood toys with olive oil.
Finished wooden toys are washed with water and a little detergent naturally without a bathe in the liquid. Then leave it to dry for several hours. If you want to remove only some stains on wooden toy, using a solution composed of vinegar and distilled water. Method works equally well with baking soda and abrasive pad.
Plastic and metal “tighten” the bacteria on the surface. Therefore, wash in hot water, plus some detergent natural. If a toy is scratched, excess should no longer be let in the child’s hand. Scratches present one of the “nests” preferred bacteria. Plastic toys, they can be put in the dishwasher.
