milton and dettol are both safe to use around children! (i suppose you can use dettol as antiseptic too)

I'd be careful putting bleach on anything - incase it gets into it and you cant remove all traces of it, plus it smells! I was told to use hot soapy water and make sure things are dried to bone dry so germs cant grow

I have done boiling water or for the quick i use clorox wipes and make sure it is really dry and for the binkys the doc said u can even throw them in the dishwasher too. I have done that a few times. But you can always just stick to boiling water.

Boiling water. I am such the clean and grem freak! And i worry that if i put some kind of steriliser on them, they'll get sick.. I do daycare, so i clean alot! and water does the job.. I;ve never use bleach, and i wouldnt recommend it..

you can buy special sterilisers for dummys (called soother trees)

its a microwaveable steriliser .. they have whats like branches (theres space for 6 dummys) and dummys hang from it... makes them look tidy tooo.

i have a cold water steriliser .. so i just use the solution to clean stuff sometimes.

or use things like dettol which are safe to use on childrens things yet kill a lot of germs.

you can wash the toys in a little bleach with water. Just dry them afterwards.

Stick to the classics... boiling water to sterilize or dish washer and for soft toys the washing machine.
