When to Clean
Every parent tackles chores in a different way, but having a routine could make cleaning your toddler’s toys a little easier. If laundry day is on Wednesdays for example, you can start up a load and give your little one’s toys a good wipe down before it’s time to switch things over to the dryer. And if your kiddo’s most-loved toys are stuffed animals, then you can likely throw ‘em in with the clothes!
Cleaning toys on a weekly basis is a good way to go about it, but there are exceptions to every rule. If your child decides to make their doll a sous-chef while they bake mud pies all summer long, you might want to wash it more often. And same goes for when your kid has a case of the sniffles – wash the toys they play with more frequently, and especially once they recover!
