Spring Cleaning: Pool Toy Edition

If your house is anything like mine, the warmer temperatures have your kids jumping into a pool most afternoons. The pool toys are coming out of storage and everyone is looking for their favorite pair of goggles! And if you’re like me, that pool water is still a touch cold for your taste, so you’re still on the pool deck supervising from a safe distance - which presents the perfect opportunity for a little pool toy maintenance! After a winter in storage (okay, after a winter piled in the lesser used side of the patio) the toys could all use a good scrub down. Here’s the 411 on getting them back in good shape for another summer of fun!

  • Give everything a good scrub down with a disinfecting solution. Mix two cups of bleach with a gallon of water OR create a half and half vinegar/water solution. The bleach will be more effective, but the vinegar is easier on the nose and skin. Wipe down the entirety of all pool toys. Use a soft brush on stubborn stains.

  • Inspect squirt toys. You can suck up some of your disinfecting solution for good measure, but know that these toys are best for single season use as it is nearly impossible to completely eliminate mildew growth inside.

  • Check that your inflatables hold air and that any plastic toys are still intact. Plastic may become brittle over time, especially when stored in the harsh Florida sun. Discard anything cracked or broken edges.

  • Inventory your goggles - look over the lenses, nose pieces, and straps and seals. Toss what is deteriorated beyond use and then order whatever you need to to avoid the inevitable tussles over the one pair that everyone likes best.
