I have wanted a salad spinner ever since my neighbor mentioned using one to clean Legos.
Then when I heard you could use one to was dedicates instead of hand washing them I wanted one even more! I picked one up at Goodwill today. And tried both.
I put cold water (directions say to use cold water) and a bit of laundry soap into the spinner when the bra was soaked I spun the spinner. This would have worked had I washed the bra more often, but I will now that I have the salad spinner, and it definitely easier than hand washing.
Obviously it is Knex but the same principle applies as would with Legos. Put the toys in the spinner with soapy water, spin away and rinse! dump on a towel to dry.
