Baby Bear's plastic toys were looking a little old and tired after being in the garage all winter and needed a little shine.
|renew your plastic toys without chemicals|
I went to the store to purchase some car dashboard cleaner and looked at all of the chemicals that were in it. Plus it had a bunch of warning on the label and I decided not to purchase it. I instead got the same kind of hand buff that I would have use and decided to try another way without chemicals. Plus with this method, the only 'side effect' is soft hands after cleaning or pushing around your child!
Canola or Vegetable Oil
Polishing pad or soft cloth and rags
You don't need super fancy oil since you are just using it as a cleaner, so the store brand will do just fine.
Give your plastic toys a good washing with the hose and use your Vinegar Cleaning Solution for any stubborn stains or goo. Then let them dry in the sun when they are all clean.
Put a generous amount of oil on your buff and rub it all over your toy in circles.
You can see how much brighter the side that I buffed is. Make sure that get off any excess oil from the toy and then you are ready to play.
Baby Bear even said "ooOOoo" when I was done!
