    Hot soapy water followed with a wipe over of vinegar or eucalyptus oil depending on what the toy is made of. Soft toys washing machine and sunlight

    Since reading online that hydrogen peroxide and vinegar, sprayed as a mist, and separately, will kill as good as or better than bleach, I use it on anything I want to disinfect. One spray bottle of vinegar, one of hydrogen peroxide, won’t work if you mix them. Look it up, you should find plenty about it online.
    I have even used it on things brought in from my herb garden, after washing, to just make sure, since there is a tree above the herbs with birds in it.

    In the past, I have used a small amount of bleach (about 1/4 cup) per gallon of water. You wash the toys in warm soapy water or with a sponge, rinse the toys thoroughly in fresh water or with well rinsed sponge, and then spray them with the disinfectant. The toys need to air dry before letting the children handle them again. The chlorine in the bleach will evaporate into the air, leaving virtually no traces. I’m not sure that I would trust vinegar to disinfect as well as bleach. I will do some research on vinegar’s effectiveness, as Phyllis suggested. I do use vinegar to rinse soap out of clothes, and vinegar may have more beneficial uses than I am aware of. Thank you!

    Any baby toy that can be washed can easily go in the dishwasher, but you have to use the heat drying cycle. I have a home daycare and I take care of a 7 month old. I have to sanitize toys every week. The small baby toys go in a mesh bag and sit in the top of the dishwasher. I also break down the highchair that we strap into a kitchen chair, and it fits in the dishwasher.
