Plastic toys are children’s happy companions when they grow up. However, some plastic toys often emit a persistent odor, which affects children’s play experience and health. In response to this problem, scientists have developed a variety of methods for removing the odor of plastic toys.
1. Causes of plastic toy odor:
Various chemicals such as plasticizers, pigments and additives are often used in the manufacturing process of plastic toys. These chemicals may emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which cause plastic toys to emit unpleasant odors. These odors can negatively affect children’s respiratory system and health.
2. Methods to remove the peculiar smell of plastic toys:
(a) Ventilation: For newly purchased plastic toys, exposing them to a well-ventilated place, such as outdoors or in a ventilated room, can help the odor to disperse and volatilize.
(b) Cleaning: Wash plastic toys with mild soapy water or non-hazardous detergent, which can remove dust and dirt on the surface and reduce odor.
(c) Natural adsorbents: Certain natural substances, such as activated carbon, baking soda, baking soda, etc., have the ability to absorb odors. Store them in an airtight container with plastic toys for a while to absorb odors.
3. Precautions for removing odor from plastic toys:
(a) Choose safe cleaning agents: Make sure to choose safe, non-hazardous cleaning agents and avoid products with strong chemical ingredients.
(b) Children’s exposure precautions: When handling plastic toys, pay attention to the safety of children and ensure that they do not come into contact with harmful substances or cleaning agents.
