***CARE INSTRUCTIONS***Wood is naturally anti-bacterial. It's true! Bacteria generally do not sustain life for long and does not duplicate on wood like it can on plastic. However, if you feel the need to wash the toy:• wash gently and quickly with soap and lukewarm water. Avoid soaking.• let it dry completely.• lightly sand with fine sandpaper unpainted areas. • refinished with any food-safe oilIt is impossible to get full water resistance with natural materials. Thus, we do not recommend using these toys when playing with the water or placing painted toys to the mouth.
