7 Cleaning Tips For First-Time Parents

Babies can bring so much joy but they can also bring their own unique set of cleaning challenges. If you’re a first-time parent, the stains, smells and cleaning backlog that a tiny human can create may come as a bit of a shock.

Whether your newborn has just had their first ‘poonami’ or your eight-month-old has a fondness for smushing boiled carrot into their best outfits, you’re going to need a whole new set of cleaning hacks to get you through the baby years.

Preparation is half the battle

Although a new baby doesn’t have to mean getting a shed load of equipment, in many cases, that’s exactly what happens. From travel systems, to co-sleepers, to baby monitors, to sleep pods, to swings, to rockers, to breast pumps, to sterilisers, modern parents can find that their homes can be overtaken by stuff for their new housemate. Not to mention, the bags of hand-me-downs many new parents are kindly gifted by friends and relatives.

The glut of baby paraphernalia can be overwhelming and can make keeping your home clean and tidy more difficult than before.

Keeping it chemical-free

With chemical-loaded cleaning sprays and harsh washing detergents firmly off the shopping list, you’re probably looking for natural, alternative solutions that will get the job done. From how to make your own homemade deodoriser to how to get rid of unsightly stains with a few everyday products you probably already have in your kitchen cupboards. Or simply try our enzyme product Bio One™ Baby and Toddler surface cleaner, perfect to have around the house to keep everything clean and fresh, whilst being 100% natural and created especially for using around your little ones.

Fitting cleaning into your new routine

Trying to fit essential household chores like laundry and dishwashing into the equation can be a struggle, especially in the early days. Between sleepless nights, cluster feeding and soaking up those all-important cuddles, it’s no surprise that keeping your home spic and span can slip down your list of priorities.

If you’re a new or expectant parent, we hope our cleaning hacks help you to overcome some of the little challenges your babe may throw your way.

What are enzymes?

Don’t be fooled to think that because enzymes are natural they are less effective than chemical cleaners. Enzymes are nature’s very own powerful cleaning tools. Making them the go to choice for customers who do not want to spray harmful chemicals around their children and home.

Simply put, enzymes are all around us performing millions of important tasks in our bodies and in nature every single day. They are a type of protein that act like a biological catalyst to speed up the break down of organic compounds.

Similarly to how saliva, (which contains enzymes), initiates the digestion process by breaking down food in our mouths, cleaning enzymes use the same ‘enzymatic digestion’ to effectively break down and eradicate the organic proteins present in urine, faeces, vomit, drool, dirt, food, and more.

This process not only makes cleaning easier but also prevents the growth of bad bacteria – the root cause of those unpleasant odours – in the air, on surfaces, and within the fibres of your soft furnishings.
