We’ve had a rough last couple of weeks. We moved into a new house about a week before Christmas and then the sickness hit. First my oldest followed by my youngest with my middle daughter soon after. Then just when we thought we were in the clear, I got it. Needless to say, we are now doing everything we can around here to stop the spread of germs. We don’t want our friends and family getting this junk! Scotch-Brite Botanical Disinfecting wipes are a lifesaver. They’re great for wiping down toys as well as things like door knobs and light switches that are in high traffic areas.
Toys tend to get a little gunkier during the winter months when the kids are indoors and often have runny noses. Scotch-Brite Botanical Wipes disinfect and kill 99.9% of household germs and cold & flu viruses leaving surfaces like counters, tables and toys residue-free. I love that rinsing isn’t required unlike other similar wipes. Scotch-Brite Botanical Disinfecting Wipes are the perfect safe and effective solution to keeping toys and other household surfaces clean so you can keep your family healthier this winter.
Our new climber gets a lot of use. We keep it indoors and it’s perfect for the kids to burn off a little energy when they can’t go outside to play. Every few days (or when I see the need) I wipe it down with a wipe to rid it of germs. The wipes also work great on smaller toys. My kids actually enjoy helping me with the cleaning and will wipe things down when I ask them too. The wipes are safe around kids, pets and food so I don’t have to worry that they’ll be harmed. I love the extra help I get when using these wipes!
Scotch-Brite Botanical Wipes are available in Lemongrass and Breeze and retail for around. Get $1 off 2 with this coupon.

Lanie craig says
I use a bleach and water solution to clean toys or lysole
Julie Cutshaw says
My best toy cleaning tip would be to use handy wipes on each surface at the beginning of each day and then once a week soak the smaller toys in a plastic tub that has vinegar and warm water. And when the toys are not in use keep them inside a closed tub away from dust and air born germs. When I worked in day care centers we always washed the kids hands and face at the beginning of playtime and as the left for the day, it lessened germs on the toys alot. We also put the story books inside big ziplock bags each friday and sprayed lysol inside and closed them up to kill germs on them.

everything needs tobe disinfected with scotch brite
Cori Westphal says
My best tip is just to do a little at a time! Don’t overwhelm yourself with an entire house full of toys. Take a few things, clean em up and move on. The next day, grab a couple more, and so on!

I would have to say mine would be to rearrange all the toys at least once every two weeks, that way you know you’re getting to clean them all etc!
christine jessamine says

Jayne G says
Buying washable versions of stuffed animals saves a lot of trouble later – just throw in the machine on a gentle cycle.
Doing the “clean up song” always works best for me. Telling my kids oh guys you wanna sing a song? It goes like this:
Clean up clean up
Clean up clean up
Everybody do your share
Its a bit like the ten second tidy
I really don’t have a great cleaning tip. I sure do louve these wipes I use them all the time.
Ruby Daniels says
This would really come in handy
Judy Godsey says
I boil my grandchildren toys after I wash them.
Kristin D says
My best toy cleaning tip would be how to clean stuffed animals! Mix a small amount of liquid fabric softener with water and then gently scrub with a white rag. Then gently scrub the toy several times with a damp white rag to rinse all the fabric softener out. Otherwise it will be a crunchy toy. Hang on a pants hanger to dry overnight. I’m curious, I’d like to see if the Scotch Brite disinfectant wipe would clean a stuffed animal. If nothing else, it would remove the germs, which is always a plus. I love that it’s safe around pets too!

Ann Mountain says
We have our first grandchild. I’d love to give this gift card to his Mom so she can indulge him with some toys!
Ann Mountain says
I have found that if I tackle a mess as soon as it happens it is so much easier to clean. There is nothing worse than dried on, sticky, spilled juice on the floor. As soon as a spill occurs, I grab some paper towels and soak it up. Then I spray the floor (I use Chlorox Clean-Up) and wipe again.
Idaho Jill says
We usually just use a light bleach solution, or wipes!
Misty Crocker says
After cleaning baby dolls and washing their hair use 2 tbs of fabric softner in a small spray bottle of water and spray on dolls hair and no more frizzy stuff!
