I also buy a lot of toys from thrift stores. I've run all of them thru the dishwasher or washer and dryer and have yet to ruin any of them. Even stuffed animals are good after washing and drying. My granddaughter takes most of her stuffed animals with her into the bath tub anyway. "Gramma, they need a bath too."
Chlorox Anywhere is Chlorox bleach greatly reduced with water. When my granddaughter was in the hospital they told me that they disinfect their toys with a bleach such as Chlorox diluted with water. Chlorox is chlorine (sodium hypochlorite); the same substance that purifies our water.
I've only purchased quality stuffed animals such as the small ones stuffed with pellets. The ones sold at Walmart for .99 also wash well. My granddaughter loved one that I bought at the Dollar Store that was stuffed with a fiber stuffing. She vomited on it and the surface came out rough after her mother washed it. I think the key to success with stuffed animals is the pellet like stuffing. All of he Disney ones have washed well. So have all of the "collectible" brands.
MOst electronic toys will not survive the dishwasher. However, I've washed some small baby toys that play a tune when you push a buttong and they've returned to "singing" after they dried completely. These are the kind that do not use a replaceable battery.
