Mold Alert: Throw Away Your Bath Toys!
As you know, mold is not only disgusting, but it can have some health impacts on you and your children. We would be horrified to ever expose our children to mold; however, chances are: Your bath toys are already doing it. This is your sign to toss your bath toys and get your hands on some worry-free, anti-microbial bath toys for a healthier bath experience. Keep reading to learn more about how often bath toys should be replaced and the products you need to give your kiddo worry-free and healthy baths!
How Often Should Bath Toys Be Replaced?
If you have had the same bath toys for months, or even years, grab them as fast as you can and toss them in the trash! A study by ABC News examined various bath toys sent in by parents and found mold and bacteria on 100 percent of them—and many also had traces of fecal matter. (source: ABC News)
Unless you’re cleaning your bath toys with either vinegar or bleach twice a week (and who REALLY has time to be doing this?), your bath toys are definitely part of that statistic. In addition, bath toys should be completely replaced every six months or more.
Mold and germs on toys can cause respiratory problems, allergies, and other health problems. And while mold affects people of all ages, it can wreak havoc on those with weak immune systems, such as children. (source: The Maids)
Alternative Healthy Bath Toys
If your bath toys have little holes in the bottom, you’re going to want to pay extra close attention to making sure they are clean and taken care of, as well as replaced every six months or more. Honestly, that is pretty tough to do and keep track of as a parent.
One of the easiest ways you can have a worry-free bath experience for your kids is to give them naturally antimicrobial bath toys, and Innobaby has an entire line of them.
