Cleaning Easter eggs has become important to reduce the spread of germs. When you host an Easter egg hunt, consider cleaning off the eggs to have a safer gathering with your kids. Today’s blog from NET Egg talks about cleaning off plastic eggs effectively.
Warm, Soapy Water
You can make cleaning plastic Easter eggs a family event. Set up a bin on your table, or you can sit on the floor if it’s easier. Put warm water and dish soap in the bin. Put all of the eggs you want to clean in the bin. Then use a scrub brush to clean off the eggs, dry them with a cotton cloth, and put the eggs on a towel.
Wet wipes are a good option for plastic Easter eggs. Use wet wipes for several Easter eggs in a row until the wipe gets ragged. You might get through 20 to 30 plastic Easter eggs before having to switch wet wipes. You can let the eggs air-dry, or you can dry them with a cloth.
Disinfecting wipes offer another level of clean compared to wet wipes. Use alcohol-based wipes or wipes that contain an EPA-listed disinfectant that kills germs while cleaning plastic eggs. Set the Easter eggs aside, and the alcohol or disinfectant evaporates after 5 to 10 minutes.
Soak in Water
You may not need to wipe the plastic eggs. Rather than wipe them down, just soak them in warm, soapy water. Take them out after about 10 minutes, set them on a towel, and let them air-dry after an hour. Your Easter eggs will be cleaner than before. This isn’t as effective as wiping down, but it’s quick and easy.
