New Baby Care Tips: Maintain a Clean Home & a Happy Newborn

Discover new baby care tips from Dettol to keep your baby as healthy as can be. Get tips on disinfecting, cleaning baby toys, and keeping it virtually germ-free.

Once your baby arrives, cleaning as you know it will change forever. You’ll quickly realize that it’s not just about finding time to clean that changes, but also how it must be done. Having the big, new responsibility called 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 mom 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 of the floor and into a place where you can easily find them later 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 know where the disinfectant and sanitizing spray are kept so that they may wipe down a dirty spot as soon as they see one.

  • Get on their level.

From our lofty vantage points, it’s pretty easy for us adults to look at a floor and judge if it is clean enough. However, your little tyke is going to spend quite a bit of time on those floors, and you’re going to want the floor to be spotless in order to help keep your baby safe from bacteria and viruses that get tracked underfoot. Turn to Dettol Power & Pure Pourable Multi-Purpose Cleaner to keep your floor safe and sparkling, without leaving behind any harsh or harmful residues. Do not use this product on marble, wood, brass and acrylic plastic surfaces.

  • Small goals are better than big endeavors.

One of the most important things to learn is when you have a newborn, nothing else matters than spending time with your baby. Do not be too finicky about cleaning up and having an immaculate home. The time you lose in cleaning will be better spent in moments that make your life so much more enjoyable with your baby.
