Getting rid of stubborn mould marks on bath toys

 
After soaking my daughters grippy dots in various products I thought they were due for the bin. I had tried soaking them in bleach and various anti mould sprays but nothing seemed to budge the stubborn mould marks. After reading someone’s success of using denture cleansing tablets I thought I would give it a go. Follow these simple steps below to get rid of mould on your children’s bath toys;

  1. Dissolve one denture cleansing tablet in a bowl of hot water- ensure not boiling as you may melt the toys! I just placed enough water in to cover the grippy dots. 
  2. Place your bath toys in to the solution and preferably leave over night. I tried after a couple of hours and it didn’t clean them very effectively so I placed them in a fresh solution and left to soak. 
  3. Now it’s time to clean your toys- I used an old tooth brush to scrub mine, but a hard sponge should do the job, it just may not reach any awkward places! After a few minutes they looked like this…  

There not “as new” but I’m happy enough to return them to my daughters bath- for around 50p I think this is a great cleaning tip. I picked my denture tablets up from a bargain shop and now do not need to pay to replace them 🙂 I’m also going to look into what other great things these tablets can do!
