When you become a parent, there is a change in how you see the world. Suddenly things become different and your priorities change. One of the things that becomes a concern for new parents is cleanliness.
Before you would let the dishes stack up for a day before washing or become treats stacking rubbish in the bin like a game of Jenga. Now the baby is here and suddenly, this is unacceptable.
We get it, we understand.
In this Chemist Direct article, here are some useful tips and tricks to keeping your home ship-shaped for you and your family.
Keep Disinfectant Wipes Around the House
Always be prepared and keep disinfectant wipes available throughout the house. Whether you’re tucking a pack in a magazine rack in the bathroom or your living room’s bookshelf, close at hand for whenever you need it. By having disinfectant wipes to hand in any room, you can respond to any messes and spills when you find it.
As well as addressing any spillages your children make, it becomes easier for you to wipe down and disinfects surfaces whenever you feel appropriate. Rather than trying to clean entire rooms with surface cleaners in one go, throughout the day you can touch up spots and spaces as you go.
Keep your Kitchen Sink Clear
Not to get too graphic but your sink can be a disgusting breeding ground for bacteria and germs. Your kitchen sink can carry up to 100,000 times more germs as your bathroom.
That’s why it’s important to keep your sink clear. Stacks of plates, bowls and cutlery left lingering in the sink offers an opportunity for germs and bacteria grow, especially if they’re left sitting there for a long period of time.
Wash your Washing Machine
From mum and dad to the children, your washing machine cleans for everyone in the family. However, have you ever considered how clean your washing machine is?
Due to soap residue, minerals and chemicals from your detergents can be left behind in your washing machine after washes. Over time, this creates a film that traps bacteria and clogs your machine’s inner mechanisms. This can cause your washing machine unable to heat up or operate efficiently as well as become a breeding ground for bacteria and germs. That's why you should wash your washing machine regularly.
