I have gone through 5 dummies in the past couple of months. Does anyone have any good tips to keep them clean and get rid of bad breath smells without using chemicals?

  • I was fortunate to receive a steriliser and tablets as a gift so used to use it for everything . Boiling them in a pot of water is the old fashion way which I used for teats , but wouldn’t recommend for dummies due to the plastic parts.



  • Wash in hot, soapy water. Rinse well and sterilise with your bottles in the microwave steriliser.



  • I boil them for 5 min too..



  • Soak them in boiling hot water for 5 minutes before sterilising.



  • Use sterilising tablets as for baby’s bottles or run them under hot water.



  • Isat mine in a mug of hot water for 10 minss



  • Boil them like you are sterilising bottles!



  • boil them and wipe with an antibacterial wipe



  • ive always boiled mine for 5 mins



  • rinse in water and sterilise in microwave for only about a minute



  • hi there, how r u going have u tried boiling them.



  • you can boil them .



  • wouldnt you just boil them for about 5 mins?



  • I boil my little boys in a pot of boiling water



  • What did you end up finding that worked?
