    I've given my daughter a plastic/rubber teething toy for the first time today, the pack says not to sterilise or put in the dishwasher...so how do I clean it?! I've googled it and it keeps coming up to use bleach, really?! What does everyone else do? X

    We just wash things like that in hot soapy water then rinse them well. To be honest, once they're picking toys off the floor and chewing them, hot soapy water on teethers is probably good enough.

    Thank you! I did think hot soapy water but then when I saw bleach I thought maybe it wouldn't be enough. But I must admit I can be pretty lazy with her dummies and she's been fine! Although I will be throwing out the one I've just found in the dogs bed...!
