During the epidemic, in addition to necessary protective measures when going out, home disinfection is also necessary. Especially the toddler utensils used by the baby every day. If it is not cleaned, viruses and bacteria can easily enter the baby's intestines, causing abdominal pain, diarrhea, and indigestion. In severe cases, it can cause gastrointestinal inflammation.

Correct misconceptions

So how to wash the baby toddler utensils to be the cleanest? Is it OK to scald it with boiling water several times?

High temperature sterilization is indeed feasible, but two conditions must be met at the same time to achieve the desired effect: temperature and time. Generally speaking, boiling water at 100°C for more than 5 minutes can kill or inactivate some bacteria and microorganisms. In the actual operation process, it is inefficient and troublesome, and there is a risk of burns.


Some parents like to soak the bowl in the sink after eating and wait until the next meal to wash. As everyone knows, what you soak is not a bowl, but a pot of bacteria. Experiments have shown that putting 1 to 5 grams of meat, fish, rice, and vegetables in a bowl filled with water, and placing it at room temperature for 10 hours, the number of Staphylococcus and E. coli in the bowl actually increased to 70,000 times.


The correct cleaning method

Suitable cleaning tools

It is also important to use suitable cleaning tools. Unsuitable cleaning tools can easily scratch your baby's toddler utensils, and bacteria are easily embedded in the scratches, so you need to choose a suitable tool to clean your baby's toddler utensils. Glass toddler utensils has high hardness and wear resistance, and can be cleaned with nylon; plastic is soft and easily scratched by nylon, so use sponge to clean it. However, glass toddler utensils is fragile and may harm your baby. Therefore, it is best to choose plastic products or stainless steel toddler utensils.
