One savvy mom has discovered a quick and easy way to sanitize kids’ toys without needing to scrub them down.
Lauren Mejia, who has gained a huge following on TikTok due to her parent hack videos, shared just how she keeps her son healthy as he shares his toys with others.
After stacking all of her son’s toys inside her dishwasher, she wrote: “Wash and sanitize toys easily in the dishwasher.”
She made the note that the dishwasher should be set on low heat to avoid melting or breaking the toys you splurged on for your kiddo.
A few days ago, mom of three Allegra Dorotheo showed in an Instagram video how to make an indoor water table to keep children entertained for hours and you only need a dishwasher to replicate it.
The caption read: “Don’t you just love a good mom hack?”
The only thing you need to recreate her hack is a dishwasher.
First, she opened the dishwasher door all the way down so her baby could sit and reach it.
She then put a towel down to stop the floor from getting damaged.
Allegra poured a small jug of water into the dishwasher door, and that was it.
Her baby was kept entertained for ages and this means you can quickly finish some kitchen chores whilst supervising your baby.
Allegra admitted in the comments of her video that she got the idea after her baby was playing with left over water after she loaded a plate in the dishwasher.
In the caption, Allegra also gave a few safety tips to ensure kids were safe whilst doing this: “Make sure all sharp silverware is out of reach inside your dishwasher.
“If baby can push to stand, keep a watchful eye to be sure baby doesn’t face plant in the water causing drowning.”
