    What is the best and efficient way to clean dirty Legos'? I have about 10lbs of old dirty Legos' at home. I tried using a brush, but I can't seem to get the dirt out from the bottom side of the Lego piece. It's very gross and has a lot of dust ball. Please give me some advice!

    Not really sure and wow, that's a lot of legos.

    But I had a similar problem over really dirty peices. I put a small group of them at a time in a water bucket and then pour small drops of some anti-bacterial soap and rinsed the legos. Afterwards I'd still brush them off. The dirt should then be easier to clean off. I don't promise it will work, but it should help. Mine came out nice and shinny.

    I'm not sure if this will help but I asked my cousin (she's a preschool teacher) and she said that the best way is to use a 5-gallon bucket filled with warm water and 1 1/2 cups of bleach. Dump them in and let them soak for about 3-5 minutes and then scrub with your brush and then rinse with warm water and then they should come clean.

    I used a bucket of warm water and it seemed to do the trick.

    just get a big container and fill it with warm water, then let them soak.

    i cant believe you were using a brush, would take forever with the amount you got.
