Hi, WOndered if anyone had any top tips for me. My ds is 13mo, he has mild ecsma (you'd think i'd know how to spell it - doh!) so we don't usually put soap in the bath. His anti-slip mat accumulates brown gunk around the suckers which is really hard to clean off.... at the moment i just scrub it after every bath with a brush but its hard work and i thought if there's an easier way someone on here might know it... (good for the bingo wings tho!)

You can usually put them in the washing mc

You can stick some of them in the washing machine...

Ours went gunky/mouldy despite trying to leave it to air dry after every bath, but washing it in the washing machine didn't shift it.

Ended up buying a new one (only £2.49 from Argos)

throw it away and buy another one

try soaking in a strong solution of Soda Crystals for a few hours - I find that gets rid of most gunk! (obviously need to rinse thoroughly before using again)

cheers - will give it a go in the washing machine - hadn't thought of that. Merrily, what are soda crystals and where do you get them - would they work for his bath toys, they get scummy too, i have a net to keep them in but they still get slimy after a while and i just add them to the pile of washing up.
