How to disinfect wooden toys?
Toys are the baby’s closest friends. Babies often put toys on the ground when they are playing, and toys are likely to become “nests” for bacteria, viruses and parasites. Bacteriologists have done a test: after 10 days of playing with the sterilized toys, the number of bacterial colonies on plastic toys can reach 3163, on wooden toys 4934, and on fur-made toys up to 21,500. What a terrible number! It can be seen how important it is to clean and disinfect baby toys, and the method used for disinfection should depend on the material of the toy. 1. Toys made of fur and cotton cloth: they can be exposed to the sun for several hours. 2. Wooden toys: can be washed with boiling soapy water. 3. Toys made of metal: You can wash them with soapy water first, and then expose them to the sun. 4. Plastic and rubber toys: can be soaked in 0.2% peroxyacetic acid or 0.5% disinfectant for 1 hour, then rinsed with water and dried in the sun. Normally, it is necessary to cultivate the good habit of tidying up the toys after the baby has finished playing. Parents should pay special attention not to let the baby put the toys in his mouth and wash his hands afterwards. Mouth blowing toys are best to play alone to prevent cross-infection of infectious diseases. Wish the baby grow up happily!
