Having a baby at home is an amazing experience, but at the same time a huge responsibility. Their care is very specific and delicate, especially in their first months of life. It’s necessary to provide safe, clean and disinfected spaces and objects, that is why today we want to talk about how to clean with a newborn at home.
To have the proper hygiene we recommend soft products to wash bottles, plates, spoons and other objects with which the baby comes into contact when eating or drinking. Make sure they are made of food-grade plastic and dishwasher safe.
Spong can be the perfect ground for germs to grow. Just as you should pay attention to the hygiene of food utensils, you should also pay attention to the sponges used for such cleaning, since they keep a lot of dirt, so once they are used, they should be rinsed and disinfected correctly. You can disinfect them by placing them in your microwave for 15 seconds, but don’t rely on that too much, since it can allow more resistant bacteria. You can put them in a mixture of baking soda an vinegar overnight for an effective disinfecting.
The floor and carpets are the areas that keep more bacteria because of the constant contact with footwear. A good ol’ mopping and vacuuming will do the trick. Make sure your cleaning product has disinfecting properties.
Taking into account the materials of the toy, the type of product to be used for washing or cleaning must be taken into account, always taking care that these products are not toxic. Remember that certain types of plush can be ruined by the washing machine. Prefer soft polyester or felt
Care is stricter with a baby at home, however, it is essential to maintain constant cleaning and disinfection. We can help you out and we’re a click away!
