How do you boil your toys?

Contributor: Arlinnae Arlinnae
Silicone and other, non porous, waterproof toys, are boilable, for the purposes of sterilization.(well as long as they dont have a motor or something.) But how long do you actually have to boil them for? I've heard everything from 3 minutes to 15. Do you bring the water to a boil, then drop the toy in? Or add it at the begining?

I bring the water to a boil, drop the toys in, and boil for 10 minutes.

I sanitize them in a rolling boil for 5 to 10 minutes (5 minutes for stainless steel and 10 minutes for silicone), over a towel to prevent the toys from touching the bottom of the pot. I prefer to put the toys into the pot when I start heating the water.

I let the water heat up for 5 mins first then slip in the toys. That speeds up the process. After it comes to boil, turn down heat enough to see the bubbles still raising. Stainless toys for 2-3 mins. Silicone 4- 5 mins. I never mix stainless or ABS with silicone. I like to pull them out while hot and leave in thermal cup so all the water can evaporate.

I also like to use a dedicated pot for this. Just feel strange to eat something from a pot our toys were just in.
