Pimp Your Ride!

Pin It Now!
Baby Bear's plastic toys were looking a little old and tired after being in the garage all winter and needed a little shine.

I went to the store to purchase some car dashboard cleaner and looked at all of the chemicals that were in it.  Plus it had a bunch of warning on the label and I decided not to purchase it.  I instead got the same kind of hand buff that I would have use and decided to try another way without chemicals. Plus with this method, the only 'side effect' is soft hands after cleaning or pushing around your child!



Canola or Vegetable Oil
Polishing pad or soft cloth and rags

You don't need super fancy oil since you are just using it as a cleaner, so the store brand will do just fine.


Give your plastic toys a good washing with the hose and use your Vinegar Cleaning Solution for any stubborn stains or goo.  Then let them dry in the sun when they are all clean.


Put a generous amount of oil on your buff and rub it all over your toy in circles.  


You can see how much brighter the side that I buffed is.  Make sure that get off any excess oil from the toy and then you are ready to play.

shiny and new

Baby Bear even said "ooOOoo" when I was done!


  1. They really do look good! I'll have to tell my daughter about this.

  2. That's really clever, and so easy. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I love this idea and am going to try this when I clean my daughter's toys this weekend! Great idea!

  4. These toys are looking wonderful and in my opinion toys are the most precious things for kids,Actually they are just like friends for them so parents should buy soft,sophisticated and non toxic toys for their loving babies.
