How to Clean Rubber Duckies and Other Bath Toys

Jolie, the Goddamned RUBBER DUCKIES. My daughter loves them, but I have ceased to put them in the tub with her because they fill with mold and then she puts her mouth on them, and then she’s basically doing a beer-bong of mold water. Is there any solution to this other than depriving her of her bath toys??

Yup, yup, I got you covered! This is so common and it’s incredibly frustrating that the people who make bath and teething toys don’t take mold growth into account as part of the design process. I cannot tell you the number of expletive-filled emails and texts I got from my parent friends during the whole Sophie the Giraffe mold scandal . It was crazy-making for me and I wasn’t even the one stuffing a child full of mold spores! I’m honestly still so mad at that giraffe, you guys.

As frustrating as it is that bath toys have this pretty major design flaw, the good news is that blasting away mold is a fairly simple and mostly hands-off endeavor. Today, we’ll go over a few of the options you have for doing so.

First, though, let’s talk about that word I used, “options,” because it’s an important part of how I approach this job. Ask a Clean Person has a clear POV; you can expect to get a lot of information on the products and techniques that can be used to address any given cleaning problem, but not many formal directives about which choice to make. That’s because we’re all adults with free will—and also because my primary education took place in Cambridge in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s and I can’t really shake the whole Free To Be You And Me ethos of the time—and I’m not one to tell you that you must (must, must, must!), say, use bleach to kill mold, when white vinegar is also a great choice for performing that operation. You get to decide that for yourself based on the information I give you! A few other things you can expect from this column are kindness, humor, real talk, and a lack of judgment. Life is too short for me to spend my time shaming strangers because they don’t care if their pillows have never been washed. And also, I don’t sleep on your pillows.

Destroying the Mold

Okay! With that introduction out of the way, let’s talk mold-blasting. The two approaches are to either give the toys a long soak in a mold-eradicating solution, or to boil ‘em. If you go the boiling route, you can use plain water, or a solution of equal parts white vinegar and water. If you go the long soak route, dilute either ½-1 cup of white vinegar OR chlorine bleach in a gallon of water, but not both, never both. In terms of how long to soak toys in either a vinegar or bleach solution, an hour up to overnight will do you right.
