Dirty School Lunch boxes

Either at the end of the term or final school year the children’s lunch boxes can become very dirty and worn. Those that wont last another use get tossed into the garbage; however the ones that can go another round, can easily be given a good clean and sterilise.

All that is needed:

  • sink
  • nappy soaker
  • hot water
  • old wooden spoon or stick



Fill the sink with a good scoop of nappy soaker and hot water.  Place the lunch boxes opened into the water (pushing down with the spoon or stick) and soak for a good hour.  Afterwards, put into washing machine on a delicate rinse cycle and spin. Hang on line to dry.

Here they are and all ready to store for the following term or year and as clean as a whistle!
