    I have 2 bators that need a good cleaning before I go into my next lockdown. I have 3 bators, yes I am crazy but do I really have to tell you guys that?? [​IMG] Anyways, I have tried to wash with warm water and dish soap and I can't seem to get it as clean as I would like. Is it safe to soak it in warm water with a little bleach? I just have a thing about cleaning and the dish soap isn't cutting it for me LOL [​IMG]

    Yes, clorox is the way to go. Get rid of the soap. A good hot water soak will get out anything that's coming out and the clorox will take out most stains. It will yellow after a while, but not bad. And clorox is deadly to those germs. It will smell quite strong at first, and will need to air for a while afterwards.

    I use a bleach spray every time. It is the only way to kill all the bacteria.

    I love the clorox clean up spray. I also tried greenworks organic cleaner and liked it. the clorox just makes it white and new~
