How to Clean Your Tommee Tippee Steriliser

We all know that raising a family is not easy. It’s hard to keep up with everything! And don’t even get me started on the endless number of chores that need to be done every day.

But, one thing I have learned from being a mom is how important it is to have a clean home. Especially when you have children who are crawling and trying to explore their surroundings. It’s crucial to maintain safe and clean conditions for your baby so she can grow up happy and healthy. Wouldn’t want them playing in a dirty house, right?

In this article, we will show you the best ways to clean your Tommee Tippee steriliser so you can rest assured that your child will be safe from bacteria and germs while she plays around the house!


According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, a healthy person should be able to be exposed to bacteria and germs for as long as 12 hours without experiencing any symptoms. On the other hand, an exposure to high concentrations of bacteria and germs for less than five minutes can result in serious conditions, like respiratory infection or urinary tract infection.

So, if your baby is still too young to play independently, you are required to have a steriliser that you can use to clean the surface area of your baby’s bottle before each feeding.

Unlike conventional baby bottles, which are usually watertight, you can use a Tippee steriliser to clean the surface of the bottle.

I know some people who have had their child sick, and although my child is not sick at the moment, she is also crawling and exploring the house. And that’s how the germs start! So what happens is, she licks her fingers and starts to get germs all over her!

These germs end up on her pacifier and she starts sucking on it.
