How do u clean your kids toys? Some friends were over today with their kids and one child was coughing and putting my son toys in his mouth. i sprayed most of the toys with lysol and let them sit in hot water for a while (the ones w/o battaries).

  • Clorox wipes! A mommy's best friend =) Seriously, I love them, they're great for toys and any hard surface!

  • I get a big bowl of hot water, add a little dishsoap and a couple tablespoons of bleach then wet a towel with it and sipe everything down. If the toy is diswasher friendly I just throw it in there when I run the dishes. Stuffed toys that can be washed get thrown in with dd's bedding.

  • I would use either Lysol or Clorox wipes for cleaning what you can't put in water. But something like legos, you can put them in hot water and put in a little bleach that should help.
