If you're worried you can run them through the dishwasher, spray them with Lysol or throw them in the washing machine on a hot wash.

Re: RSV ??

Use the dishwasher for toys that won't let water inside, the washer for cloth toys, and use rubbing alcohol for everything else-just put some on a soft cloth and wipe-the alcohol will evaporate and not leave a residue on the toys like most other cleaning liquids will.

Get the new clorox spray that can be left on surfaces. It's a LIFESAVER!

Wipe down the crib rails, etc....stuff that you wouldn't have thought about. BUt clorox spray is great for all that.

Re: RSV ??

Looks like we are doing the same thing today. I am actually taking a break from cleaning everything. We put a lot of her toys in the dishwasher last night and wiped everything else with lysol wipes. So far every toy that she has touched today will also be washed until she stops showing symptoms. I also put her stuffed animals that were with us at the hospital in the washer on delicate and they came out fine.
