How often do you do it? How do you do it and what toys do you disinfect.
I ask because I am doing it for the first time in more then two years. I have always been a believer in kids being exposed to germs so their bodies can learn to deal with them. But with a new 4 month old who has been struggling with a cough and cold for more then a week I couldn't help but wonder what we where passing back and forth. I have been soaking anything I can in bleach water and spraying the larger items with bleach water or my safe disinfectant. The stuffed toys and larger items I am struggling with, but what is too much and as I clean the toys I find I feel so bad for having waited so long.
Don't feel bad. I'm with you in the belief kids need to be exposed to germs. But at the same time, toys do need cleaning here and there, especially if you have multiple kids. The ones you wash with bleach water are, of course, the ones with poreous, hard surfaces. I usually throw softer toys in the washing machine, but then again, I have older toys which can be. Otherwise, look up an all-natural disinfectant you can use like vinegar water you could mist onto a soft toys.
