Ours are dreadful. Do I just throw away and start again?

make the hole bigger and clean it with a cotton wool bud.

I seem to remember cola from somewhere...

I tried Milton and all sorts but gave up and chucked them! Will try the cotton bud trick on these new ones!

oh yes scooter girl i remember a coke thread

wasnt it soak the toys over night in coke... also would assume you would want to suck coke in to the squirty toys and balst it out again in the morning

i read that putting them in the washing machine is ok!

To the OP - yes!

Been there, done that (hate that expression but there you go!)

Mildew spreads onto your grouting, everywhere so I bin them.
