Re: How do you clean your children's toys?

When I worked in a daycare, we disinfected toys daily with bleach water. It loses potency after 24 hours, so we made up a new spray bottle every day. I can't remember the proportions, but it doesn't take much bleach -- maybe a tablespoon in a spray bottle? That's a guess.... sorry....

I do wash DD's toys (fabric in the washer, plastic in soap and water or with bleach water) after she's had a nasty illness, yes, and every so often the bath toys and the bath mat get bleached (then rinsed a lot) to get potential mold and mildew under control.
