1) Clean soft toys in a washing machine

It is not difficult to clean baby toys! Often, you can just put them in the washing machine, and you are good to go! Just check the label to make sure that the toy can safely be washed in the washing machine. While cleaning the baby toys, put them in a pillow cover, to make sure that they are completely protected from any harm.

2) How to clean plastic baby toys with Dishwashing Soap

Plastic toys are among the easier to clean. Just a quick wipe will often do the trick. However, it is always a good idea to wash them once in a while, to make sure that they stay in a hygienic condition. Just leave the plastic toy to soak in a bowl with hot water and dishwasher soap, use a brush if necessary, and rinse well. After that, dry the toy naturally, and voila – you are done.

3) Gentle Detergents Work Best for Baby Blankets

Does your baby also have a favourite blanket – one they just cannot do without? Luckily, the favourite blanket can be washed in the washing machine, dried outside in the shade, giving a quick result! However, because it is their favourite blanket, it deserves some special care – especially if they bite or chew on it regularly. Surf excel is a baby-friendly product which leaves the blanket smelling fresh & keeps all the germs away.

Key Steps:

  • Put soft toys in an empty pillow cover before putting them in the washing machine

  • Use just a little bit of cleaning product to not over-soak the toy in soap

  • Do not use bleach on their toys as it is a very harsh chemical

Always test your cleaning product on a small area first, before applying it on the whole toy.
