Bath Toys

Rub a dub dub…let’s get rid of that dirty crud! Wet bath toys can become grimy with mold. Make sure your kid’s are having clean fun by washing these toys often. The cleaning pros from The Maids® suggest using bleach. “Simply allow the toys to soak in a bleach bath overnight. To make, mix ¾ cup of bleach with one gallon of water. Rinse toys with water multiple times then allow to air-dry. The bleach will evaporate and all you’ll be left with are clean toys!”
