BeginAgain’s Shark Tank Bathtub Ball is a fun, colorful and – most importantly – non-toxic bath toy that is sure to appeal to kids of all ages!
Water, bubbles, splashing – what’s not to like about bath time? Brace yourself and read on because, unfortunately, many children’s bath toys can harbor mold and bacteria! You see, water gets trapped inside the bath toys (especially the ones with small holes), which allows the bacteria and mold to grow and fester. If that doesn’t worry you enough, let’s not forget that many bath toys are made of PVC and phthalates, which are known hormone disrupters and have been linked to a number of health problems including cancer. Keep your little ones safe by choosing bath toys that are PVC and phthalate free, like these cute underwater explorers from BeginAgain. And then read below for tips on keeping bath toys clean and mold free.
Little M loves playing with BeginAgain’s shark tank, hero diver (complete with diving helmet), octopus and sharks. I love that the toys are made of heavy duty natural rubber and are easy to keep clean so I don’t have to worry about mold and bacteria lurking inside! These Bathtub Pals from BeginAgain are adorable too.
Here are some tips for keeping your bath toys clean:
- Air dry bath toys after each use. Try to store toys in a mesh bag or open container like this one from Boon.
- Wash toys regularly with soap and water.
- Once a week, soak bath toys in a mixture of white vinegar and water, then rinse well and air dry.
- When toys need a thorough cleaning, follow the steps above and use a toothbrush or scrub brush to really clean the crevices and corners.
