Okay, now let me just grab a disinfectant. The reason why disinfectant is so helpful in the bathroom, here's one reason. Well, while your kids are in the tub, sometimes they go to the bathroom in the tub, and you've got toys in there, so what do you do? Well obviously you get them out, and you take care, and you clean them up. But what do you do with the toys that are in the tub that the children have just gone to the bathroom in the water. Well the best way to do that- and usually it's just when the children urinate in the water, typically the children will do that quite a lot when you put them in the water. So what you want to do, make sure that you have some disinfectant, just drain the water out, fill the tub up, maybe a quarter of a tub, leave the toys in the water. And you just want to take a little bit of disinfectant in that water, just a couple of little squirts like this, is really all you need, maybe a quarter, or a half a cup of disinfectant, and just swish it all around in the toys. And let the toys sit in that disinfected water for about 20 minutes, and then drain it off. And then I would rinse those toys under clean water to get off those chemicals, because you don't want the children getting back into a tub that has got a lot of chemicals.
