How to Easily Clean Kids Toys with Vinegar

Cleaning Toys

Kid’s are pretty gross. I mean, they have their fingers in their nose a majority of the time, and then they put their boogers randomly all over the house. I’d rather touch a toilet than anything in a toddler’s toy chest, but maybe that’s just me. Check out this brilliant idea. Put them in the dishwasher! Bath toys could especially use a good rinse.

How to Easily Clean Kids Toys with Vinegar #HeinzVinegar by

School has been in session for a couple of months now, play dates are moving indoors, and the littlest two attend the child-watch at the gym weekly, which means my kiddos are bringing home those kid germs, like it’s nobody’s business. With three kids, at least one of them always has a runny nose or another one of those pesky cold symptoms.

That’s why it’s especially important to try and keep their toys clean and germ free as much as possible. I have found, that with many of their toys and especially their Barbies, I can easily wash them all in either the dishwasher or with a cleaning spray.

We try and keep our cleaning solutions healthy and safe for not only our girls, but our dog too. Plus, you got to keep it “green” for environment, right? It’s so simple, just to use vinegar.

Over the weekend, we took a trip over to Walmart. We needed to pick up a few things, including some more vinegar, since we ran out of our last bottle. You can see our fun shopping trip pics over on my Google+ page.

Anyways, they had quite a selection to choose from, but what really stood out to me was Heinz Cleaning Vinegar.

What I like about vinegar, is that it is safe. You can use it throughout your home to clean laundry, surfaces, and even your produce.

Since going Paleo, we have been buying a ton more produce, and I have found that it is easiest to come home from our shopping trip, and wash all of it in the sink with vinegar and water.

Heinz Cleaning Vinegar is a cost-effective alternative to harsh cleaners and chemicals, which is also important. Especially if you like to clean often. Which I really don’t, but with having children, I still do.

Have you ever tried using vinegar to clean your children’s toys?

It’s really quite easy. You load up the dishwasher with anything that is plastic or rubber. Make sure not to put anything that uses batteries though. Then just add in 1 1/2 – 2 cups of vinegar and wash.

 That’s it!

For those toys that can not be put into the dishwasher, you can create a Citrus Infused All-Purpose Cleaner. It can easily be used to spray and wipe down the bigger toys, or wooden ones.

Either way, it helps to clean your toys periodically, to eliminate germs in the home and keep our kiddos from getting sick.
