Get the World ready for your little one….👶🏻

February 24, 2016

All my friends know that I am a bit finicky when it comes to the cleanliness of my home. Especially with kids around you have to be on the ball all the time to ensure your home is in tip top condition.

I read in a magazine article recently that there are some areas of the home which must be cleaned daily to ensure all germs are eliminated. Especially with kids around –

  1. Kitchen worktops
  2. Shower Walls
  3. All sinks
  4. Dirty dishes
  5. Coffee machines
  6. Crumb covered floors
  7. Hand towels

I must admit even I don’t manage to get to these things daily, but it is a definite eye opener to know about!

My memories of ‘Getting the home ready’ for my newborns-

My boys are now 5 and 8 but I remember clearly the anxiousness and excitement as if it were yesterday.


My boys when they were 4 & a newborn ❤️

With my first born the excitement was unbelievable. I gave birth to both my boys abroad in Antalya, to be near my parents, but I remember getting our home in London ready, having everything – carpets, upholstery, beds, curtains – deep cleaned in preparation for the new arrival.

When we got home things naturally started to go off plan. I don’t think anyone is 100% ready prepared for the sleepless nights, breastfeeding every few hours. But you learn to cope. And having a clean home to bring your baby into is just the best feeling ever!

Dettol – helping you keep your little ones germ free!

Whether you’re a first-time mum or you’ve been through it all before, a little help to get everything ready for your new arrival can go a long way.
No matter how clean your home is, it’s essential to take extra care when you’re preparing for the arrival of a new-born or have a toddler keen to explore. Adopting these simple hygiene habits will ensure that your home is hygienically clean and safe for your little one:

Healthier Surfaces

· Nurseries should be kept free of harmful germs, especially in the first few weeks. Don’t forget it’s not just the changing mat and cot that can harbour germs but also frequently touched areas like the door handles and light switches. Dettol Anti-bacterial Surface Cleanser has no taint, no odour and no bleach and is suitable for use in baby contact areas.

Germ Free on the Go  

· From that first night in the hospital to the first trip out, keep car seats, highchairs and all your baby equipment germ free with Dettol Anti-bacterial Cleansing Surface Wipes which kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses and are great for hard to reach surfaces and on the go.


· Keeping your hands clean, before and after handling your little one, is really important to make sure germs don’t spread. If you’re feeding, changing, or perhaps handling food or pets, try our Dettol No-Touch Hand Wash System. It automatically dispenses anti-bacterial Hand Wash, after you place your hands under the nozzle to help prevent the spread of germs.

Added Laundry Protection

· It’s not just re-used baby clothes and bedding that can harbour germs, new ones can too! While washing at low temperatures is kind to baby’s clothes, it doesn’t offer protection against bacteria which can survive below 60˚C. Use our unique Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser alongside your normal detergent and softener to guarantee hygienic cleaning, even at temperatures as low as 15˚C.
