    Cleaning your baby?
    ickypuss posted:
    One fact I have come across with, is over years of arguing with my
    wife. When the baby is dirty in mud, tar, or gravel. The hose is the
    best to start with. The one thing she has never agreed with, on top of the fact that she believes baby's are not dishwasher safe. Is that I have put my limited edition R2-D2 life size replica in ours. He came out just fine! I would never put him in harms way, so how in the world could it be bad for infants? Besides them having a deep cleaning once in awhile. The washer never once said not for baby's. I think we'd know
    by now if it really was dangerous. I would always love my baby to be
    squeaky clean, just like my wine glasses. Even better, he can be
    cleaned with them!.. Two birds right there!
