How to Clean and Disinfect Children’s Toys Without Harmful Chemicals
Toys, Changing Tables, High Chairs, Playpens, Strollers, Swings and Car Seat
It’s no secret that children love toys—and they love sticking them in their mouths. Because children tend to touch (and lick) everything and anything, it’s very important to regularly clean and disinfect your kids’ toys, play areas, and any other things they regularly touch.
However, you don’t want to use just any ol’ cleaning product when disinfecting your children’s belongings. Many commercial cleaners come with a long list of harsh, toxic chemicals, which when used to clean your children’s toys, could end up being ingested by your little ones.
There are dozens of products on the supermarket shelves—how can you find one that is both safe and effective to use?
We’ve got you covered! Today we’re going to share a cleaning solution that’s effective, safe, and environmentally friendly. Oh, and did we mention it’s extremely easy to use and affordable, too?
Hydrogen peroxide 3% Is The Solution
Hydrogen peroxide 3% is a non-toxic, environmentally friendly cleaner that can be used to effectively clean and sanitize everything from toys to high chairs to changing tables.
Often referred to as Mother Nature’s cleaner, this naturally-derived solution is equal parts effective and gentle. There are numerous benefits to using it around your home, especially when it comes to disinfecting all the items that your children regularly come into contact with.
It Effectively Kills Harmful Microorganisms on Any Surface
Children are, essentially, mobile germ magnets. They love touching everything, putting things in their mouths, and sticking their fingers in their ears, nose, and mouth. Because they are so prone to catching and spreading harmful germs, it’s incredibly important to thoroughly sanitize the surfaces they regularly touch.
Hydrogen peroxide 3% is an extremely powerful, yet gentle cleaning. It kills bacteria, viruses, mould spores, yeast, and fungi to help prevent the transmission of common and serious illnesses.
Hydrogen peroxide 3% can be used to disinfect any surface, even hard-to-clean fabric in strollers, car seats, swings, hair chairs, and changing tables. Fabric surfaces can grow mould, especially if they’re left outside or get wet, which can lead to allergies and respiratory issues.
It’s Non-Toxic and Safe to Use Around Children of All Ages
Look on the back of any commercial cleaner and you’ll see a long list of hard-to-pronounce chemicals that most likely include harmful chlorine, alcohols, acids, and other dangerous ingredients. While they might work, they also put you and your family’s health at risk.
Hydrogen peroxide works just as well (if not better) than those cleaners, but doesn’t contain any of the bad stuff that we don’t want our children inhaling or ingesting.
By using hydrogen peroxide to clean your children’s toys and supplies, you can rest assured that even if they put a toy in their mouth (which they will), they are completely safe.
It’s Safe to Use Around Those With Respiratory Issues
While hydrogen peroxide 3% can be safely used around anyone, it’s an especially good choice for children that suffer from respiratory problems such as asthma and croup. Hydrogen peroxide is not a lung irritant and completely biodegrades into just water and oxygen atoms so it won’t cause any sort of irritation or harm to anyone in your household, including your precious little ones with respiratory issues.
It’s Cost-Effective and Eliminates the Need for Multiple Cleaners
The average person’s cleaning closet is overflowing with half-used bottles of commercial cleaning products. What if we told you that you could throw all those bottles in the rubbish bin and replace them with only one product?
When it comes to cleaning your children’s toys and play areas, reach for Oxygen Plus Multi-Purpose Disinfectant Cleaner with lavender essential oil—a food-grade hydrogen peroxide 3% product that’s made with pure distilled water. This all-in-one solution cleans, disinfects, sanitizes, and rids of foul odours. By switching to this green cleaning powerhouse, you’ll be saving money and closet space!
