What do you do with toys that get dropped in the toilet?

Mom & Dad (aka my In-laws) sent my Son a Sally car (the Porsche from "Cars") and He LOVES it..the only problem - He accidentally dropped it in the toilet this morning. I have it sitting in a bleach and water solution (prob a bad idea for the car, lol), but I'm still not wanting to give it to Him now.

  • If it's been cleaned, it's clean.

    Being a proponent of 'natural immunity building' (aka: letting kids get dirty), in the few instances of this, I rinsed the item in hot water and handed it back.

  • I wahsed them with hot water and soap and gave them back. Toys cost way too much to toss them. It's not like they fell in to toxic checmicals.

  • I would probably put it in the dishwasher, if not just wash with hot water and soap.

    I'm in the camp that lets kids get dirty and that exposure to germs is good for them.
