Sand Help!


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hi

Not sure if this is the right place to post this question. Sorry if it isn't.

 

I am updating all of my risk assessments

How often am I ment to change the sand in my sand tray?

Is there any sort of advisory on this?

I do regularly change it, but my head has asked me to investigate this further.

 

Any help would be great!!

 

Thanks

I fill mine up when there's not enough left!

Sieve the dirt out when you sweep it up off the floor and it doesnt get too dirty and I found mixing it with washing up liquid seemed to refresh it too. Sand can get very smelly when it is wet, after a while.

I only replace mine once a year.

 

In between times I clean it;

 

Pour on Milton solution to above the level of the sand,

Leave it for an hour or so for the Milton to work,

Tip out the excess which carries out lots of bits and dirt with it,

Top up and tip the water off again,

Leave it to dry.

As long as the Milton is mixed in the right proportions they can still play with it when wet. I rinse it to prevent bleached patches on clothes.

I was amazed how easy and effective this was when I first tried it.

What a great tip! Milton is so much lighter than bags of sand!!

when you say 'top up and tip the water off again'do you mean top up with water or another load of milton?

Sorry I took a while to reply.

 

I just top up the container with clean water, stir the sand round in it and then tip it off again. This rinses the sterilising fluid out or at least dilutes it to the point where it won't bleach clothes.
