    Clearing Room APO 18-24 mo board

    I'm in the process of clearing out some toys, not to get rid of them, but DS seems bored so i want to remove some for a while, then bring them back out at a later date. My Question is this, i want to clean them as i go, but a lot of what he has are electronic toys, i know some of the pieces i can spray with lysol and let them air dry, but the actual interactive peices i'm concerned about, I still have yet to find a way to clean his My Pal Scout who is totally filthy!

    Here are the Toys i'm concerned with how to clean:

    The scout one is hard because the electronic box doesnt come out
    Any help or input would be great! Any other Cleaning agents i can use other lysol i will gladly try as well!

    When I clean plastic toys, I usually use a soapy paper towel, or maybe a paper towel sprayed with some Greenworks or something. I know a few friends of mine use some sort of disinfectant wipes (maybe Clorox?) for their toys. I just can't handle Lysol, the smell makes me sick! Maybe with the My Pal Scout try spot cleaning it with some dish soap on a warm damp cloth. Did you save any of the instruction manuals? Sometimes they give suggestions on how to clean the toys. HTH!
