Your challenge: Doing a major deep clean of the house used to be a big special event. But, now that you have a baby who isn’t fully sold on the idea of keeping things neat and tidy? Oh, it’s more like a daily occurrence—and you can’t help but wonder if there is a better way to keep everything (and we mean everything) clean.
Your solution: Look for products that work with you to make your job easier. Out with tiny pieces and elaborate upholstery, in with covers that can be easily wiped down or tossed in the wash. After all, there are better things to do than spend your days cleaning.
A high chair that’s incredibly easy to clean: After introducing solids to your baby, the first thought is, “Aww, this is so fun.” But that is quickly followed by, “And incredibly messy.” For that reason, two phrases all parents love hearing are “machine washable” and “dishwasher safe.” Trust us and make sure your high chair has both of these features.
Stowaway sleep space with easy washing solutions: For little babies, they sure can command a lot of space. But if you feel your room is being slowly taken over by baby gear, aim to invest in products that can be easily stored away when not in use. That way, it can look to visitors like you are a KonMari devotee—while you harbor the secret that your storage space is just stocked. And while not in use, toss those covers or fitted sheets in the washing machine. Look at you!
A place to play—and then stow away: Before having a baby, you didn’t give much thought to the real cleanliness of your floor beyond whether the crumbs were swept. But now you can’t help but think about those germs your baby is putting their hands and—oh no!—mouth all over. That’s why a large, foldable, clean-able playmat is a favorite among babies and parents alike.
Pro tip: Don’t forgot to include all those hard baby toys in your regular cleaning schedule by giving them a good clean to sanitize.
