In order to help stop the spread of germs and illness among children, day care centers are required to wash and sanitize toys and play equipment regularly. Most centers sanitize toddler toys weekly and infant toys daily.
There is every reason you should do this at home, particularly if your child’s toys are touched by other children who come to play.
There are sanitizing solutions at your local supermarket that will do the job. But do you really want to use chemicals to clean a toy that will end up in your child’s mouth?
Vapor steam cleaners turn ordinary tap water into a powerful chemical-free sanitizer that is completely safe to disinfect your child’s toys and other surfaces where children put their mouths, like crib rails.
