Those annoying plastic ones that curl round and round and children love.

I know there will be tears if I throw them away but their looking a bit gunky inside despite my efforts to clean them so dear Mumsnetters how do I clean them?

soak them in a bowl of hot water and bicarbonate of soda? it's what my mum used to do for my inhalers as a child.

Thank you Catmiini I will try it. If that fails they go in the bin tears or no tears!
