If there is a new-born baby in your house, everything must be kept meticulously clean. Baby’s immune system is not yet strong enough to master a fight against viruses, bacteria and other germs. Disinfectants and cleaning wipes help you clean objects with which your baby can come in contact – no matter if you are at home or on the go. In our online shop on kids-room.com, you will find everything you need to keep viruses and bacteria at bay. More information >
Supermarkets and chemists offer plenty of cleaning agents and detergents that have a germicidal effect. But not all of these products are necessary when a baby moves into your house: if the environment in your place is sterile, the risk of your child suffering from allergies increases. In addition to this, disinfectants can irritate your little one’s sensitive and delicate skin and in the worst case they can even lead to eczema. Babies and infants are much more prone to infections or illnesses – that is why, the right dose matters a lot! Disinfectants and cleaning wipes help you maintain the required hygiene, but they should be used sparingly. After all, the level of cleanliness in your house also depends on your child’s age.
At the beginning of your child’s life, his immune system still needs to be supported a great deal: in order to keep germs at bay, the teats of baby’s bottle as well as his soothers must be boiled or sterilised in a steam steriliser every single day. The same applies to learner’s cups and baby bottles which are particularly prone to bacterial attacks in the bottom section. As soon as your child starts to crawl, it is enough to clean his tableware in the dishwasher at 60°C. In case you don’t own a dishwasher, we recommend you to wash the dishes right after every meal – this way, you can prevent germs and bacteria from multiplying. Once your little one has reached his first year, it is sufficient to rinse his soother with hot water. In case you put your baby’s soother or else the spoon for his puree into your mouth to get it clean, your carious bacteria can settle in your baby’s mouth.
In the kitchen, you do not only prepare food for yourself, but for your baby too. That is why, this is the place in your house where you should pay particular attention to proper hygiene. Cleaning wipes and disinfectants are useful for cleaning surfaces on which raw poultry meat lay for cutting.
The most important tips for maintaining a proper hygiene in your kitchen:
Even if your baby is still very small, using disinfectants is hardly necessary. It is enough to clean your flat thoroughly once a week. If there is somebody in your household who suffers from a contagious disease, things look a bit different. When this is the case, you need to be equipped with cleaning wipes and disinfectants. The more actively your child explores your flat, the more crumbs you will have to collect from the floor and the more you have to clean it. Cleaning wipes are perfect for removing little mishaps while disinfectants are only then really necessary when you need to eliminate viruses, bacteria and germs. In case you actually need a disinfectant you should make sure that these products are biodegradable.
Everything your little one touches with his hands will be put right into his mouth afterwards: the younger your child is, the cleaner everything should be. While it is quite easy to control the cleanliness in your flat, things look a bit different when you are out and about with your child at the playground or in the garden. This is when cleaning wipes come in super handy. They are perfect for wiping baby bottles or other items on the go, so that your child can continue playing and you don’t have to worry about him coming in contact with harmful germs or bacteria. When your child plays happily in the sandbox and accidently eats some sand, there is no increased risk of infection. Nevertheless, there are things that do not in any account belong into the mouth of a baby or infant: this applies to all things that are touched by many hands such as a bunch of keys, coins or the contents of the cat’s toilet or the dustbin.
Proper hygiene is important, when there is a baby or an infant in your house. Normally, anti-bacterial detergents are not only redundant, but can also be quite harmful. However, they do turn out helpful only when there is somebody in your household who suffers from a contagious disease. The kitchen is the most sensitive area in your house: when preparing meals, you should always pay particular attention to maintaining proper hygiene.
