All Natural Toy Cleaner

4 Materials
5 Minutes

Well it's officially the thick of cold season, how is your family holding up? Even if you are eating fabulous leafy greens and taking those vitamins, it's pretty hard to avoid the causal sneeze at the grocery store or the handrail as you enter the gym. As fate would have it your little's are not overlooked when it comes to these germs on the hunt! I am loving this all natural spray cleaner I recently made for my little dude's toys and nursery. Not only does it smell great from the antibacterial essential oils I dropped in it, but it's kid-friendly AND eco-friendly. Instead of wasting hundreds of sani wipes wiping down everything I can use one towel and a few spritz of my all natural toy cleaner. Happy to share this recipe with all you Mommy Maker's out there...now back onto tackling those germs!!

Straight from  Dr. Bronner's website, I found a great  dilution cheat sheet to help with this all natural cleaner formula...Recipe:1⁄4 cup soap in a quart of water in a spray bottle. Add 1⁄4 tsp. tea tree essential oil if desired.

    Can you just spray this on - not spray it on a cloth and wipe? Can you use it on stuffed animals?

    A little dirt, especially from their own toys, builds immunity in children which leads to healthier adults. Relax a little moms.

    When I was teaching I would run the toys through the sanitation cycle of the dishwasher.
