Non-Toxic Toy Cleaner
Let's face it. Kids can make things pretty messy around the house. With a 3 yr. old, a 2 yr. old and a 6-month old , things can get out of control around my home. I've got two children who make their toys pretty messy and a baby who loves to put EVERYTHING in her mouth. So, I had to find a non-toxic solution that still managed to clean their toys. This solution is simple, easy and au-natural! No toxic chemicals, no harsh odors and child-friendly.

The amount you add is completely up to you, but remember that less is more - especially when creating something that is child-friendly. I added 4 drops and it was on the stronger side.
