Create a Germ Bucket for Dirty Toys

Create a Germ Bucket for Dirty Toys

What is a germ bucket you ask? Well, it’s a place to quickly throw all those boogered up and drooled on toys that my child care kids use every day.I do all I can to keep the germs at bay in my home. With other peoples children here I try even harder to keep everyone healthy. I do not have time to disinfect every toy each day so I created the “germ bucket”.I use a shoe box sized plastic container and leave it next to the sink. When one of the children puts a toy in his or her mouth I toss it in the “germ bucket” instead of back in it’s original container. At the end of the day I fill the bucket with hot water and a tiny amount of bleach and let them soak for a few minutes. I use hot soapy water to rinse the bleach off and let the toys air dry.
