If you have found second hand lego or duplo, or have some knocking about that has seen cleaner days, and don’t want to spend hours of your life and gallons of water scrubbing it, here is a life hack for you that will extend the life of your favourite toy.
You will need: grubby lego, a pillowcase, one or two strong elastic bands and a washing machine.
Put the lego into a pillowcase, secure the top with one or two strong elastic bands, nice and tightly, then pop the whole lot in the washing machine with your preferred eco-friendly washing liquid. Et voila! shiny clean lego.
