    Hi girls

    My little one loves bath toys. She got some animal ones that squirt water out their months

    However, while after every bath I make sure they are not left full of water the insides of the toys have got that black slime that things get when wet and I can't get rid of it so now when she is playing sometimes bits get squirted out into the bath which I think is gross

    Any tips? I've tried sucking in water that's mixed with shampoo/fairy liquid

    Will I just have to buy new ones?

    We swill water around in them while squishing any bits the mould gathers and then give it a good shake and squirt as much out as possible. We do chuck them once they get too nasty though.

    I suck up a 10% hydrogen peroxide shake them well and leave them soaking out of reach for a couple of days. Then rinse well. It usually cures the problem, until it happens again. I think a soution of normal bleach is even more effective but I can't use bleach.

    Thanks for the suggestions I'm reluctant to use bleach but may give it a go. They're pretty hard so it's not really possible to squeeze his off them. They wouldn't have even cost a tenner so I should probably Chuck them

    Try Milton if you are reluctant to use bleach.

    Pop them in a bucket of milton and squeeze to fill, leave them in there overnight and squeeze out a few times in the morning .
