The Best Natural Bath Toys & Tub Cleaner

Clean your bath toys without using products that contain harmful chemicals!

Alright mamas. If you’ve got a little one who loves bath time, you know as well as I do that it’s so easy for their toys to get slimy, germy, moldy and downright nasty if they go too long without a good cleaning. For those of you looking for a way to keep them clean (and your bathtub too!) without using harsh or toxic chemicals (like bleach), I’ve got a fix for you.

Here’s what I tried, and it worked wonderfully!




  • Step 1: Fill the bathtub with a few inches of water (enough to submerge the toys). Temp doesn’t matter.
  • Step 2: As the water is running, pour in about a cup of white vinegar, a good squirt of dish soap, and about 10 drops of Tea-Tree oil (tea-tree has natural, anti-fungal qualities).
  • Step 3: If you have squeeze toys, draw the mixture in and out of the toy a few times to clean out the insides. Then allow the toys to soak in the mixture for several hours. I propped open the window in the bathroom to subdue the strong smell from the Tea Tree oil.
  • Step 4: Empty the tub and dry off all the toys. Your tub and toys are clean and good to go!

I do this routine about once every 1-2 weeks to keep P’s toys and tub squeaky clean! I love that all the ingredients are natural and that I know I’m not plopping P back in a tub or watching her put toys in her mouth that are covered with toxins from other non-natural cleaning products. It makes my mama heart rest a little easier at night 😉

Alright, signing off for now. Have a great week, friends!



PS- Even when this little girl isn’t in the bath, she’s wishing she was… #mylittlemermaid
