7. Clothes

Some things that many people don’t think about sterilizing are their baby’s clothes and blankets! Whether they are hand-me-downs or brand new, you should follow these instructions to sterilize. Wash the clothes in hot water with a detergent specifically for baby. If you feel the need, add color-safe bleach.

Dry the clothes on the hottest setting the dryer has, and use a fabric softener sheet to prevent static. Now your baby’s things are clean and ready to wear!

Remember, it’s always a good idea to wash or clean anything before the first use with your new baby. Infants have sensitive skin and low immune systems, so you want to protect them from harmful germs as much as possible! What items do you think are necessary to sterilize before giving them to your baby?
