Bath toys get disgusting. This is a huge frustration for many parents, I’m sure, but it’s important to wash the toys to remove any… grossness. Washing the bath toys in the washing machine is the easiest solution for me because our washing machine and dryer are on the top floor- the same floor my kids take baths.
Recently, I went through all of the boys’ bath toys to organize, declutter, and clean them. Some had to go in the garbage or recycling- I don’t think it’s feasible to get mold out of some of these toys. I know some people try, but there’s really only so much you can do. And more mold grows back.
I am trying to find toys now that don’t have the holes, in hopes that there will be less mold buildup to worry about. I hate throwing things away. These boats and ducks from Boon are supposed to be good options. The Matchbox Boat and the Octonauts Bath Toys are mostly non squeeze toys too. They’re a bit easier to drain and dry off, as well as to wash.
