You actually only need 2 tsp of bleach for every gallon of water. Using more bleach does not kill any more germs. Just wastes bleach and causes stronger fumes.
I use a mild soap and water solution when washing stuffed toys. I really like the idea of disinfecting them. Won't bleach ruin the toys (discolor them or some kind)?
Bleach is the best-- a 10% solution will kill HIV. I envision a spray bottle with the mixture. Plus, within 24 hours, the bleach combines with the air and goes away. Probably you could rotate the kids toys to allow the bleach to do it's thing.
I like this new Clorox Anywhere Hard Surface spray---it doesn't smell funky and says its safe to use on anything!!!
I use it alot on my son's booster seat tray.
Put them in your dishwasher, top rack away from the heating element. stuffed toys can hit the washing machine.
Disinfecting/Antibacterial wipes are fine for toys that cannot be submerged in water. If you can submerge them, fill a plastic tub 1/2 full of warm water with about 1/2-1 cup of bleach and let them soak. Bleach is by far the best sanitizer even today.
