How Clean are your Kid's Toys?

Well, school has gotten under way, and already germs are starting to get passed around!  It's a scary time as everyone is tempted to reach for their hand sanitizer, yet also contemplates the repercussions of doing so.  (read my posting here)

While you can't control how germs are handled at your kid's school, you can decide how to attack them at home.  One front you may want to consider battling germs on is those residing on (and in!) your children's toys.  Here is a great article on how to sanitize toys.

I, personally, like to use a solution of:

2 Cups Water
1/4 Cup White Vinegar
1/4 tsp Tea Tree Oil

Mix it together in a clean spray bottle and spritz on hard surfaces, toys, light switches and door knobs!  It's easy, smells nice, and it's healthy for your kids and pets!  (Who says living green has to be hard eh?)
