    Once a week or so I just chuck them all in the sink and wash them like I did with dishes. Then I just rinse them out every other night when I have a shower and put them in a basket with a towel at the bottom next to the bath...

    I don't

    When I buy bath toys I use the hot glue gun to seal the hole at the bottom so water doesn't get in there, then after every use they get hang up in a mess bag in the bathroom so any excess water runs off

    I use demestos once a week to clean mine. My boys love squirting with the toys so I need to get the water inside and put them in a bucket for an hour. Then rinse in hit water.

    I read somewhere warm water and white vinegar in a bucket soak and rinse after a while. Make sure to squeeze water/vinegar in the toys then clean water as well
