What is the best (preferably chemical free) way to sanitize my LO toys especially after play dates? How often to you clean your toys? Stuffies I can wash, some toys and paci's I do the 2 - 5 minute boil. What about the other toys?

After wiping down toys that cant be boiled i usually leave them in a freezer for a few hours, most bacteria will not survive the freezing cold temperature. I usually clean the toys right before we go to bed this way you are not leaving your baby stuck without any toys in the middle of the day.
