How to Maintain Cleanliness of MPASI Equipment

Contamination of bacteria, viruses or bacteria in food can cause various diseases in babies, from canker sores, vomiting, to diarrhea. To prevent your little one from experiencing this condition, let's apply the following ways to keep the MPASI equipment clean:

1. Wash hands before touching MPASI utensils

Make sure your hands are clean before touching and cleaning MPASI utensils. This method is very important to do to prevent the transfer of germs and bacteria from your hands to your little one's eating utensils. Wash your hands with running water and soap for 20 seconds.

2. Use a special baby dish soap

Do not use dish soap that is made of harsh chemicals or contains bleach, as this can peel and damage the MPASI appliance.

Mothers are advised to use a laundry soap that is specially formulated to clean baby's eating utensils. The content of this detergent is gentler than regular dish soap.

3. Use a sponge or a special brush

We recommend that you separate a sponge or brush for washing complementary foods with other equipment, Bun. This is done so that bacteria from other eating utensils do not transfer to the MPASI equipment. In addition, wash the MPASI tools immediately after use and don't stack them with other dirty utensils.

4. Sterilize the MPASI equipment

Mothers do not need to always sterilize the MPASI equipment after using it, because frequent sterilization can actually damage the surface of the MPASI tool.

Sterilization is only needed if the MPASI tool has just been purchased or is used by another baby. However, sterilization can be done once a day if your little one is sick or has a weak immune system.

Sterilizing the MPASI tool can be done by immersing it in a container filled with boiling hot water. Do not mix water with any soap as this can scrape the surface of the MPASI tool.

Use filtered water and avoid using tap water because it is feared that it will trap mineral deposits that might damage MPASI equipment.

First of all, heat the water on the stove until it is completely boiling. For plastic, glass, or metal tools, sterilize them in boiling water with the fire extinguished. If the fire is still burning, it is feared that the MPASI utensils will touch the bottom of the pan which is very hot, then it will break or melt.

The MPASI tool made of stainless steel can be sterilized over boiling water while the fire is still on for 10 minutes. After that, close the container and let the water cool.

If you want something more practical and guaranteed cleanliness, you can use a sterilizer. In addition to complementary foods, this tool can also sterilize baby bottles or toys.

5. Dry and store MPASI utensils in an airtight place

After being thoroughly washed or sterilized, dry the MPASI utensils using a tissue or just let it dry on its own. Avoid using a cloth or dish towel that is used repeatedly because it can cause bacterial or viral contamination.

Store MPASI utensils in closed containers and separate them from other eating utensils. This is very important to do so that MPASI tools are always clean and not contaminated by dust or dirt that can stick to the surrounding air.

When washing MPASI utensils, check all surfaces and make sure that nothing is broken or damaged. Besides being able to injure your little one, a damaged MPASI tool is a more ideal place for bacteria to breed. So, if any MPASI equipment is damaged, you should replace it with a new one, okay?

Maintaining the cleanliness of MPASI equipment can be one way to prevent children from disease. Therefore, apply the tips above so that the cleanliness of your Little One's MPASI equipment is always maintained.

If your little one has certain conditions that cause his immune system to be weaker or may need special MPASI equipment, don't hesitate to consult a doctor regarding how to keep the MPASI tools clean.
