How to Clean a Pacifier

It’s inevitable that the binky hits the floor or lands in some other dirt! Then you wash it and hope it is clean enough for your baby’s mouth. How can you really be sure? Here are some tips to make sure your child’s pacifier is clean and safe to use.

  1. Sterilize the pacifier in boiling water. Drop it in the water and leave it there for five minutes.
  2. Clean the pacifier in the dishwasher if it is dishwasher safe. Put it on the top rack when you run the dishwasher and you’ll quickly have a clean pacifier.
  3. Wash the pacifier in the kitchen sink. Run a small amount of warm water and then add soap. Clean the pacifier and be sure to rinse it thoroughly to remove all soap.
  4. Buy the automatic Keep-It-Clean Pacifier. This unique pacifier has a cap that closes automatically when it leaves your baby’s mouth. This way you will never again worry about the pacifier landing on the floor.
  5. Keep a spare pacifier handy. No matter what cleaning method you use, babies always seem to find a way to dirty their pacifiers before you know it. Be sure to keep a clean one on hand at all times to be prepared.

We hope these suggestions will help you and that your baby will enjoy a safe and clean pacifier. When it is time to give up the binky, we are here!
