How do you keep the sand clean?

Great question! This is especially important to us as we aim to create a safe and clean environment for all of our little diggers. First, we have a strict no-drink and no-snack policy in our sandbox areas. Secondly, our sand undergoes daily aeration where it is turned over and exposed, so it can remain fluffy and pristine. Thirdly, we regularly treat the sand with a non-toxic, vinegar-based cleaning solution that eliminates any lurking bacteria. We also have a dedicated air filtration systems to keep clean air recycling though the environment at all times. More details on our sand quality and cleaning procedure can be found here.
