Any tips on how to get rid of mold on soft toys? We’ve had a really wet summer here in Australia, and the toys aren’t faring well. I have tried Milton disinfectant (as suggested by other blogs) but with no joy.
I came across this tip in my book 1001 Practical Household Uses for Vinegar and I thought it would be the perfect answer to this question!
Here’s what you’ll need:
* Mix together 3 TBSP white vinegar, 1 tsp borax and 2 cups of hot water.
* Pour the mixture into an empty spray bottle and shake it gently to mix it well.
* Spray the solution onto the moldy area and allow it to soak. For tough stains use a toothbrush and gently scrub the affected area.
* After letting the toy soak put it in the washing machine and run it through a normal cycle. If it’s an old mold stain, or a really tough stain you might have to repeat this process.
Now your toys will be mold-free and ready for lots of snuggles with the kids!
