Whether you’re a first-time mum or you’ve been through it all before, a little help to get everything ready for your new arrival can go a long way.
No matter how clean your home is, it’s essential to take extra care when you’re preparing for the arrival of a new-born or have a toddler keen to explore. Adopting these simple hygiene habits will ensure that your home is hygienically clean and safe for your little one:
- Nurseries should be kept free of harmful germs, especially in the first few weeks. Don’t forget it’s not just the changing mat and cot that can harbour germs but also frequently touched areas like the door handles and light switches. Dettol Anti-bacterial Surface Cleanser has no taint, no odour and no bleach and is suitable for use in baby contact areas.
Germ Free on the Go
- From that first night in the hospital to the first trip out, keep car seats, highchairs and all your baby equipment germ free with Dettol Anti-bacterial Cleansing Surface Wipes which kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses and are great for hard to reach surfaces and on the go.
- Keeping your hands clean, before and after handling your little one, is really important to make sure germs don’t spread. If you’re feeding, changing, or perhaps handling food or pets, try a Dettol No-Touch Hand Wash System. It automatically dispenses anti-bacterial Hand Wash, after you place your hands under the nozzle to help prevent the spread of germs.
Added Laundry Protection
- It’s not just re-used baby clothes and bedding that can harbour germs, new ones can too! While washing at low temperatures is kind to baby’s clothes, it doesn’t offer protection against bacteria which can survive below 60˚C. Using something Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser alongside your normal detergent and softener to guarantee hygienic cleaning, even at temperatures as low as 15˚C.
