Scrub the toys and air dry them once per week

Take all the toys out and scrub them using an old toothbrush. You can also wash toys in the dish washer that cannot be damaged by it. It is also vital to ensure that all toys are air dried thoroughly before storing them. 

Clean toys using bleach solution 

The bleach to water ratio should always be 1:10 respectively. Soak the toys in the bleach solution then rinse them well with plain water. Shake off the water and air-dry the toys on a towel. This is an effective way of preventing the buildup of gunk and mold in the toys. 

Store baby toys in containers that allow air to circulate such as a mesh bag

Storing baby toys in a bucket or other closed containers is not a good idea mainly because dark closed spaces are a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and mildew, which are harmful to your baby. 

Clean the toy storage area as often as you clean the toys

Make sure that you not only keep the toys clean, but that you keep the place that you store them clean as well. Wiping out the inside with a disinfectant solution or wipe can eliminate germs and grime.
