3 Poop Happens

I have always laughed when friends tell their stories of their kids shitting in the tub. B poops pretty much on schedule it seems so I always figured we were in the clear. I was wrong. Tonight B pooped in the tub. Thankfully we are a 2 tub family so I had another place to quickly give him his bath. But now that the laughing and swearing has stopped I have to think about how to clean his toys. Cleaning the tub was easy. I used my Method Tub and Tile cleaner and hot water. But the toys are different...some of them are squirt toys.  I have been doing some research on how to clean them properly and have come across some interesting answers. Of course a lot of people suggest bleach but that is a no go in our home so I looked at the next most popular idea. Believe it or not it was to put the toys in the dishwasher with an environmentally friendly soap. The next most popular suggestion was to soak them in vinegar.

I am doing a combination of both. I am soaking them in straight vinegar and then they are going in the dishwasher.

Let's hope this does not become a pattern because he sure seemed to think the whole thing was hilarious.

  2. Oh crap! :) What about hydrogen peroxide? My sister in law uses some food-grade stuff she bought from a health food store to clean just about everything. Those squirt toys are really hard to clean.

  3. I hadn't thought about that! I should check our local health food store and see what they have.
