5 things you need to know about your child's spout cup
Have you ever had a good look at your child's cup's spout? If you do not clean the cup properly then sometimes very dirty spots may remain. And you do not want that! Here are 5 things you need to know about your child's spout cup.
Last year there was a fuss about the Tommee Tippee spout cups after mold was discovered. The manufacturer made excuses and promised improvement in the design. But how can you keep a spout cup clean? With these tips, you should succeed:
1. Use a brush
Leave the sponge aside, and use the brush that you also used when cleaning the baby bottles. Do not use the brush for your other dishes.
2. Boil the top
Wash the spout cup every time it has been used. Use a separate brush and soap to clean the cup properly. And if you really want to clean it, boil the top in boiled water. You can also put the cup in the dishwasher. Then use a sterile stand.
3. Disassemble the parts
Of course it is easy to just twist off the cap and wash it and the cup, but often a cup consists of several parts. Disassemble the cup completely in order to clean everything properly.
Don't use straws, these are difficult to clean.
5. Replace regularly
If there are scratches in the spout of the cup, you should replace the cup, as bacteria can adhere to the scratches very easily.
