6 Green Baby Care and Cleaning Tips


Toy Care

Baby toys can get grungy and smelly in no time flat. Clean noncloth toys in the same way you would the crib and mattress, with a damp sponge or cloth sprinkled with baking soda, making sure to rinse and dry thoroughly. For cloth toys, just sprinkle them thoroughly with baking soda and let sit for 15 minutes. Then brush or vacuum off the baking soda with a handheld vacuum.

Toy Cleaning Time-Saver

It can be a real pain to hand clean each of your child's toys. Cut down the time spent cleaning by herding a bunch of small stuffed animals into a large plastic garbage bag and sprinkling in a generous amount of baking soda. Close the bag up so nothing flies out and give it a good shake, getting all the animals covered in baking soda.
