From possible sex toys to domestic goddessery at its most mundane. Awesome right?
I shared this tip on Twitter a few months ago and a lot of people hadn't heard of it, so thought it worth sharing here as well.
How to remove mould from bath toys, chemical free.
You know the one where the kids are playing in the bath and squeeze one of the squeezy toys and this gross flaky stuff comes out? Yep, mould.
Even grosser when your kids are prone to squirting water from the toys into their mouths or their siblings faces (which we roundly discourage by referring to bathwater as bumwater, but apparently that just makes it funnier).
Top tip? Pour some cheap white vinegar into a bowl. Submerge the squeezy toys and be sure to squeeze some vinegar into each one.
Allow them to sit for at least an hour. I often forget about them so they soak overnight.
Give them a shake then squeeze out the vinegar and mould. Fill with water a few times to rinse and get rid of the last of the yuckies.
The best thing is that unlike chemical cleaners if any vinegar remains it won't hurt your child if they choose to ingest the bathwater once again.
It's not just my kids is it?
