Have ruthlessly culled plastic ducks and all bath toys with holes in their bottoms in our house smile

bin them but when you get news ones regularly wash them with a Milton solution (most bath toys have a small hole in them through which you can get the solution in by squeezing them as you hold them under water), then let them soak in the solution for a while (I leave mine overnight) and the rinse them and squeeze the water out. I do this about once a fortnight and the ducks I bought 4 years ago are still good as new.

Sorry was just thinking that this sounded like a lot of effort to go to for some bath ducks but I also leave the bath mats to soak in the same solution in the bath as this gets rid of all that black gunk that accumulates on the suckers underneath.

bin - bath toys have limited shelf life

I use Milton for the ducks/bathmat etc. Not nearly as regularly as Pennies though...

Washing up bowl with bleach and hot water. Fill ducks with water and leave to soak for 2-3 hours, then squeeze and rinse.
