Scrub A Dub Dub
I never thought much of cleaning out all the water toys we use for bath time around here. Scrubbing the outside yes but not so much the inside. Then I started noticing a duck getting "shadows" and Pluto the same. So I got some hot water and sucked it inside, shook them vigorously and squeezed it out. Nasty! Brownish gray sludge-like mold or growth of some kind came out. I cleaned them all out the same way. Disgusting. I let my kids bath with this? Ewwww. I thought it was just my severe neglect the first time that caused it to be so gross but a month or two passed and I just cleaned them out again the other day. Not as horrific but if you need motivation to clean and seal yours (the holes on these will be hit with a hot glue gun tonight) look no further than these pictures.
