Caring for Your Baby Changing Mat: The Ultimate Guide

As a parent, ensuring your baby's safety and comfort during nappy changes is your top priority. That's why at Bobbin and Bumble, we provide high-quality baby changing mats that are not only comfortable but also safe for your baby. However, it's crucial to keep your changing mat clean and well-maintained to ensure its longevity. Here's our ultimate guide on how to clean your baby changing mat properly.

Wipe Clean After Each Use

To prevent staining, it's crucial to wipe your changing mat with a warm damp cloth after each use. This will help remove any mess and prevent it from sitting soiled, which can lead to stains. Be careful with hot liquids, as they may damage or melt the plastic coating.

Avoid Using Harsh Chemicals

While it's important to keep your changing mat clean, it's equally important to avoid using harsh chemicals. Use a mild detergent and warm water to clean the mat thoroughly. Avoid using harsh chemicals that can damage the mat's material and be harmful to your baby. Our changing mats are covered with non-toxic PVC, making them free from harmful germs and safe for your baby.

Be Mindful of Stains

Our changing mats are wipeable but not stain-resistant. Avoid letting the cover sit soiled to help prevent stains. If your mat does get stained, try using a gentle stain remover to remove the stain. We offer a range of waterproof, non-toxic, nursery grade foam, and wipeable changing mats that are easy to clean and maintain.

Let Your Mat Dry Completely

After cleaning your changing mat, it's recommended to let it dry completely before using it again. Avoid using a dryer or heater, as this can damage the mat's material. 

Store in a Clean and Dry Place

When you're not using your changing mat, it's important to store it in a clean and dry place. Avoid storing the mat in damp or humid areas, as this can promote the growth of mould and bacteria. 

In conclusion, caring for your baby changing mat is essential to ensure your baby's safety and comfort during nappy changes. By following these simple tips, you can keep your changing mat clean and well-maintained for your little one. Browse our range of changing mats and find the perfect one that suits your needs and style.
