How can I get water out of a spinning/rattle/globe attachment that was accidentally submerged (woops). It’s half filled with soapy water and I cannot for the life of me get more than a tiny drop out. 😬🤷🏻‍♀️
I got the tiny screws out from either side, but I cannot get that sucker to open. It clearly comes apart, I can see the seams. It’s plastic, clear, and attaches to green prongs that attach to the tray so the baby can spin it. Any ideas!? I’ll try to send a pic.
