How do I clean my baby products?

Tips & Tricks
Before using them for the first time, we recommend sterilising or boiling your pacifiers, bottle teats, and baby bottles to ensure that all bacteria are killed.
For the times to follow, there are two ways to clean your Difrax products:
With hot water and detergent: rinse the bottle, teat, and other components with cold water. This is necessary as proteins harden at 40°C, making them more difficult to clean. Following this, clean the products under the tap with hot water and detergent.
In the dishwasher: rinse the bottle, teat, and other components with cold water to prevent the proteins from hardening. Then place them in the top rack of the dishwasher and select a program of at most 55°C.
It’s also crucial to clean the larger baby products in your home – like kitchen utensils and highchairs, for example – as well as the items that your baby puts in their mouth, like toys and teething rings. You can do this simply by using a clean cloth and hot soapy water to wipe them down.
- According to new guidelines, it’s no longer necessary to boil products after the first use. Please note that this doesn’t apply to premature babies, children with health problems, or children with thrush. In these cases, sterilisation or boiling is still recommended.
