How to Sterilize Baby Items With a Steam Cleaner

Average Rating: Not Yet Rated

Baby items can get dirtier than anything else in the home, yet they need to be cleaner than almost anything else. Since most babies put their mouths on nearly anything in reach, it is extremely important to keep everything that comes into contact with baby as clean as possible. Instead of using harsh chemicals to keep baby’s world sanitary, opt for a steam cleaner.

Research steam cleaners online. Look for those that have independent user reviews. Pay special attention to the negative reviews as well as the positive ones.

Look for steam cleaners that have attachment hoses and nozzles. Many baby items have nooks, crannies, and little grooves that can be especially difficult to clean. Some of the steam cleaners on the market today come with several different nozzles and some of them even come with a small brush for extra tough jobs.

Consider getting a portable steam cleaner that will be easy to carry around the house. Some of them even have an attachment that will make it easy to steam your clothes so you can get even more mileage out of your investment.

Once you have your steam cleaner and are ready to work, make sure that your baby is not in the area where the hot steam is. Hot steam can cause serious burns and so this is something you want to do when your baby is napping or playing safely across the room from where you are sterilizing.

You may be shocked at the amount of food, dirt, and debris that comes loose as you begin to steam baby items and toys. Point the nozzle a few inches away from the area to be cleaned and keep a cloth nearby to wipe away dirt and debris.

Clean highchairs, strollers, car seats, and toys with your new steam cleaner.

Be sure and use the steam cleaner on stuffed animals and anywhere baby puts her mouth or hands. You may also want to clean baby’s crib with the steam cleaner.

You can also use a portable steam cleaner to clean your bathroom and other areas of your home.

By using a portable steam cleaner, you can sterilize a lot of items in your home with ease and without using harsh chemicals. You may find that this is your favorite way to clean, especially baby items.
