Do you clean out your children's bath toys?
Did you realize they harbor mold that can give your child rashes - and well, it's just gross and nasty!
You will probably need to use bleach to clean them out, and toss the real nasty ones.
But I love this tip - just glue up the hole with a glue gun and no more mold!
NOTE: If your child is the type to be able to remove the glue and eat it, this might not be the tip for you. Since the glue goes inside, I am not sure how they could do this, but I know some kids seem to do the impossible!
REMEMBER: Little children should always be supervised while in the bathtub, so do keep watch on the toys for removed glue.

Amy Merrell posted: Good idea, except if you stop up the holes they can't squirt them anymore. The squirting is what my kids like about their bath toys. I just clean them out good with bleach water from time to time. The nasty ones get tossed.
Ann Caillier posted: I never did understand why they put the hole in the bottom of them things anyway, I don't think that my rubber ducky had a hole in the bottom
Erin Tucker posted: Why didn't I think of this!?!?!?! We've thrown away tons of bath toys and have a hard time finding new ones because they all have that hole and get moldy. whoo hoo!
Jennifer Theunissen posted: Thanks for the tip! I stopped buying anything with holes just because it's to hard to clean. My kiddos will be very happy to get some more duckies to play with :) Thanks
Jennifer Krane posted: I throw mine in the dishwasher every now and then. If they can't take the heat - then I throw them out. I always need a quick fix because they take a bath almost every night.
Jessica Glendon posted: Jennifer ... be careful...dish-washing soap is one of the most caustic substances in our homes...so if any residual soap is getting stuck inside, that could be doing your children as much/more damage. Just FYI.
