Awhile back I saw a you tube video about how to clean your pack and play. Okay, I'll file that idea away under 'things I don't need to know right now.' My pack and play is NOT dirty. I have had it almost 5 years and it still looks perfect.
Seriously, almost 5 years?
In the tub it goes. Fill it full of hot water and a half cup of
homemade laundry soap and a half cup of Melamagic (cleaner by
Melaleuca). If I didn't have those cleaners, I would use a half cup of
any all purpose cleaner and 2 cups of store bought laundry soap. Let
it soak for a couple of hours. This is how dirty the water got from my
'not dirty' pack and play.
Pretty gross if you ask me.
After I pulled it out of the tub I set it on a towel to dry. The brown spots on my towel where out of control gross. So I put in back in the tub, same as before. The water was just as dirty AGAIN! After it was done soaking for the second time I took it outside and rinsed it with the hose til the water ran clear and then set it on a towel to dry. The towel stayed clean that time.
Next time, I'll just rinse it the first time.
