Are there any surefire methods to thoroughly clean preloved items? This includes clothes, shoes, toys and books
For clothes, I suggest you either soak them in baby-friendly bleach like Oxyclean or give them a hot wash in the laundry. For shoes, brush with bleach, too. As for toys, I suggest you just use natural ingredients like baking soda and vinegar as they have anti-bacterial properties. For books, I just wipe them with alcoholMagbasa pa
I soak clothes in boiling water, then wash them after with a baby friendly detergent like Smart Steps, and rinse with hot water again. For toys, & books, I use Cradle's toy and surface cleaner.
