sippy cups for baby are great for preventing spills, but all of their small parts make them difficult to clean thoroughly. Hidden removable parts harbor countless slimes and molds. However, using the right tools and our step-by-step guide will help you protect your child by keeping the cup clean and mold-free.
Sippy cups often have a common design purpose: to keep liquid inside the cup and prevent spillage.
This is usually achieved through a design that includes a cup, spout, and some type of leak-proof valve.
This clever design solves the problem of mess during drinking. With small parts and hard-to-reach corners, sippy cups can easily trap milk or juice particles and harbor harmful moisture, creating an ideal place for mold to grow.
How to Clean a Sippy Cup
1. keep the cup clean
Wash the cup immediately after each use. This removes some of the milk/juice particles and reduces food debris in the cup for mold spores to eat and grow.
2. Completely disassemble the cup.
Moisture and food can collect at the seams between parts, be sure to take each part apart. Mold is most likely to be found in the tightest of spaces. Thoroughly clean all parts.
3. Soak in hot water and soap
Make sure the water is deep enough to completely submerge your sippy cup and accessories. Soak them in hot soapy water for 15 minutes. Softens and dissolves impurities for easy cleaning.
4. Shake off any remaining moisture from all parts.
Never reassemble or put away the cup while it is still wet. Moisture can become trapped in tight spaces and encourage mold growth. Shake out any water that collects in the straw. Let the sippy cups dry on a drying rack.
6. Dry all parts completely before assembly.
Allow all parts to dry before reassembly, which reduces the risk of mold growth. Consider storing the cup apart and only assemble it when you're ready to use it.
These guidelines and steps above will help you always have a clean sippy cup.
