Everyone in modern children is happy. Every child has many toys, but toys can be infected with germs if they play for a long time. Researchers have detected pathogenic microorganisms such as Escherichia coli and hepatitis B virus in toys, which are more polluted than clothes, bedding, and tableware. Therefore, children’s toys should be disinfected regularly.
Toys are classified according to the raw materials they are manufactured, and there are several categories such as plastic, cloth, metal, and wood. Some plastic toys contain polyvinyl chloride, and polyvinyl chloride is a very toxic compound that can cause varying degrees of harm to the liver and bones of children.
The surface of wooden toys is often coated with various colored paints, and these paints also contain some harmful substances. If a child puts these toys in his mouth to suck or bite, once the colored paint falls off, the paint film or paint will slowly be taken into the body through the mouth, which may cause chronic poisoning over time.
plush toys are a “good place” for hiding dirt and dirt. Bacteria will not only spread to children’s hands, but also spread to the body through the nasal cavity, causing respiratory diseases.
toys are children’s favorite “playmates”. They come into direct contact with children every day, and children generally chew on toys, so children’s toys should be disinfected frequently. Different disinfection methods should be used for toys of different textures. Here are some simple and effective methods:
⒈Plastic toys can be diluted and soaked with soapy water, disinfectant washing powder, bleaching powder, etc., rinsed with clean water, and dried with a cleaning cloth or dried in the sun.
⒉Cloth and plush toys can be placed in the sun directly for disinfection.
⒊Moisture-resistant, heat-resistant, non-fading wooden toys can be washed in soapy water and dried.
◎As toys are often exposed to the outside, they are easy to get bacteria, especially some stuffed toys have no outer packaging, and the customers who come to pick them will get dirty after a few touches. Therefore, toys that have just been bought or played frequently should be cleaned and disinfected to ensure the safety of children.
◎Some plush toys are filled with black cotton, and because these fillings contain harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde, children can easily cause tears and erythema after contact with them. In severe cases, they can also induce skin diseases or other infectious diseases. . Some black cotton contains germs, and children are easily infected with diseases. Once such toys are found, they must be removed in time.
