Children love to snuggle and squeeze these little cute stuffed animals and often we forgot to wash and disinfect them. Don’t you know that these are one of the major causes of allergies and sickness to our kids? That is why washing and disinfecting them is a must. Here are the things that I managed with my child’s stuffed toys and I hope I can likewise help all the mamas out there.
First and foremost, if your kid owns a favorite toy and even sleeps with it, better wash it first thing in the morning. Since kids do a lot of things the whole day, you can have all the time to dry the toy before bedtime. Segregate the toys according to sizes; wash the larger ones first since it calls for a bunch of time for you to wash them than the little ones. This applies whether you are on hand washing or machine wash.
Apply a mild scented detergent and disinfectant since children are so sensitive and using harsh chemicals may trigger allergic reactions and we don’t want that, right? And don’t forget to soak for at least 30 minutes to ensure that it is all germfree.
After rinsing, hang them under the sunlight to fully dry the inside stuffing. And make sure they are all dried up before giving them to your child since wet stuffing can create a breeding ground for bacteria and molds, so better check them completely.
This worked for me and been doing this since my kid is just a small baby. I simply desire this also works for you. Thank you and till my next post, moms!
