Once your baby arrives, cleaning as you know it will forever change. You’ll quickly come to know that it’s not just finding time to clean that changes, but also how it must be done. Having the big, new responsibility that is parenthood resting on your shoulders means exercising extra caution and extra care. As with many of the adjustments you’ll be making, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. But, with a few new baby care tips for cleaning—and a little bit of time—you’ll be the best parent in the business, ensuring that your little one is as safe in your home as can be:
- Have a basket in each room.
Save space and clean fast with a basket to hold your baby’s things. Getting things off the floor and into a place where you can easily find them will allow you to clean any room that the baby and their toys are in, at a moment’s notice. This also allows you to be efficient when doing a full home clean-up.
- Keep household cleaning products handy.
Make sure that all adults at home knows where the disinfectant and sanitising sprays are to wipe down a dirty spot as soon as they see one.
