How To Clean LEGO Bricks

Keeping yourself clean and safe at the moment is a high priority. If you or your family are currently staying at home more than normal, you could be breaking out the bricks for a little LEGO® building distraction. There are simple ways to have fun and safe stay doing so. Before and after building with LEGO bricks, wash your hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds.

You may also be wondering how to clean your LEGO bricks and cleaning them is really easy! It’s recommended that you clean LEGO parts by hand using water no hotter than 104°F / 40°C and a soft cloth or sponge. Higher temperatures may affect the quality of the parts. You can add a mild detergent cleaner to the water, such as washing up liquid, make sure you rinse them well with clear water afterwards.

Some suggest popping them in a washing machine or dishwasher, but LEGO advises against this, along with dying them with a hairdryer. When the bricks get really hot they may change shape, which means they may lose their clutch power. Obviously elements with feature electronic components, magnets or sticker details should not be placed in water.

Stay safe, stay home and build.
