So… I’ve written about my mouse problem a lot lately. I am so, so, so sick of them! They are so smart!
But I digress… One issue I’ve had, is that toys I temporarily stored in the back room in the basement in open-topped bins (see “temporarily”) had mouse poop (and some unidentifiable orange goo that I attribute to the mice) on them when I tried to take them out to use them again. GROSS! I almost just got rid of them, but we have a TON of Fisher Price Little People sets, and Harlow still likes to play with them.
So I had to wash them.
Because I’m a little lazy, I didn’t follow the online search advice to take a disinfectant wipe and wipe down each individual piece. Instead, I gathered up all the small pieces without batteries or stickers, stuck them in a few mesh laundry bags, and threw them in the wash on a hot cycle with a little soap. Set the machine to NO SPIN! Trust me!!!
They came out nice and clean. A few had some water in them, but I was able to easily shake it out. All I have left to clean are the castles/large toys, and the few items with stickers on them!
Have a great day!
