“Dear parents,

Please clean Your Kids Pack ‘n Play regularly! All it takes is HOT water, your favorite laundry detergent, and a few sprinkles of baking soda! Next, you simply have to rotate it every 45 minutes, and let it dry in the warm sunshine.

I’ll admit, I was a bit of a skeptic when I read up on a Pack ‘n Play cleaning hack… Hot water, your favorite laundry detergent, and a little bit of baking soda.

After cleaning it, however, I noticed this water was HOT AND CLEAR when I started. It is now a disgusting brown yellow color from all the dirt, and other nastiness my son’s crib has collected. I will now be doing this MONTHLY.

Note: Make sure you take it outside and give everything a good rinse down with a garden hose.

Just to be clear, nobody smokes in the house. Nobody smokes here at all, as my son and I are both severely asthmatic. Sometimes things just get dirty and you think you’ve got them clean by wiping them down with whatever. It’s always good to deep clean your kids’ everyday items every once in a while!

Hopefully this helps other mommas out there. I thought my son’s pack n play was clean, because it never looked dirty except for a few spots that I would wipe with soap and water. I never thought about how clean his bed really is, until I tried this method. It disgusted me knowing all that junk was on/in his bed where he sleeps!!! But how often do you think about deep cleaning your pack n play? It looks brand new since I’ve tried this! I know it’s gross, but this soak obviously took care of everything that any wipe down could have!”
