I've been usuing Clorox Anywhere for a while now, but I was wondering if there is a better way of cleaning the toys.

  • I've heard of people using the dish washer before, but do you just turn off the drying mode?

  • I would think you would turn the drying mode off..Don't want some of the toys to melt.

  • Wash them in the tub, the dishwasher ( no drying cycle), the washing machine - it depends on the toy. For the big toys like dollhouses all you can really do is a wipe down.

  • I use a combo of white vinegar & tea tree oil....works well, smells good, and is antibacterial w/o any dangerous chemical residues.
