Cleaning the Inside of Bath Toys

Cleaning the Inside of Bath Toys

Q: I need help cleaning the inside of those squeezy bath toys. My kids love playing with them and squirting water in the bath, putting them in boats etc. But they seem to grow a weird black slime inside of them. After awhile, the slime shoots out when they are squeezed, pretty gross for the bath. Any tips on how to clean the insides? I have tried soaking in vinegar and a 10% bleach solution with no results. Ideas?

Editor: I know just the gunk you're talking about Annabella! Does anyone know how to clean it? Or better yet, prevent it?
