Just a thought.....

Cleaning toys on a regular basis is part of helping to keep your baby happy and healthy. You can use products like Clorox or Lysol wipes, but if you want a more natural, eco-friendly method try using vinegar and water. Mix 1 cup of distilled white vinegar with 1 cup of water; pour the mixture into a spray bottle and give hard surfaced toys a good squirt. Another way of cleaning hard surfaced toys is putting them in a pillowcase or mesh bag and running them through the gentle cycle of your dishwasher (no soap is needed). Soft or stuffed toys can be effectively cleaned in the washing machine by putting them in a pillow case and washing them on the gentle cycle with just a bit of baking soda and vinegar added to the water. Keep them in the pillow case and dry them on a gentle setting in your dryer. If manufacturers suggest that you simply spot clean toys, use the vinegar and water solution.
