So often victim to ill-placed dribble and bogeys, toys do need adult attention from time to time.
Soft toys: Check the label – if they are machine washable, pop them in the machine, in a pillowcase if they are delicate. Non-washable toys can be lightly sponged, then gently dried with a hairdryer. For non-washable toys that are a bit pongy (they know who they are), put them in a bag with some bicarbonate of soda, shake, leave for a while then take them out and shake off the powder.
Plastic toys can usually be washed in a bucket with some washing-up liquid or sterilising solution. Obviously not anything battery operated!
Metal toys: Wipe down with a damp cloth, and dry off immediately to prevent rust.
Wooden toys: Use a mild detergent, such as washing-up liquid in warm water, and wipe the toy with a soft cloth. Don’t submerge the toy and dry it off with a towel.
