How to Clean Plastic Toys
Kids never cease to amaze us in their capacity to stain, smudge and soil just about any surface. For active children, dirty toys are a way of life.
Washing toys with dish soap and water or running them through the dishwasher may leave them dirty, melted or misshapen. Before using a household cleaner, it's important to consider its ingredients. Many contain harsh ingredients which can degrade plastic or toxic chemicals which remain on the toy surface, and expose children to possible ingestion or skin irritation.
Simple Green Naturals Multi-Surface Care is a safer alternative to common harsh, synthetic chemicals. The non-toxic formula is made from sustainable ingredients, and doesn't leave behind toxic chemical residues that can get on skin and into children's mouths. It removes food residue, dirt and grime and more, without degrading or discoloring plastic or removing paint, so your child's favorite toys stay looking new.
- Apply cleaner. Spray Simple Green Naturals Multi-Surface Care on the surface, or on a microfiber cloth to wipe-apply.
- Scrub. Use a nylon-bristled brush or toothbrush to scrub away the dirt, being careful not to damage paint, decals or stickers on the toy.
- Rinse. Rinse toy with clean water.
- Dry. Air dry or wipe with clean, dry cloth.
