How to Clean a Crib and the Mattress Naturally

3:54 PM

Midnight cups of milk and late night cries of tummy aches take a toll on the crib and mattress. 

But how do you clean them safely?

The best way is to clean them is with non-toxic cleaners. Something safe so if your child sucks on the crib ledge you won't have to worry and so when they sleep they aren't breathing in fumes.

You can find the no-toxic cleaners I use HERE.

To clean the crib all I had to do was spray Basic H2 the All-Purpose concentrate and wipe everything down.  

- One 16 oz. bottle of Basic H2 makes: 48 gallons of super powerful cleaner, or 5,824 bottles of window cleaner. Sustain-ably sourced ingredients derived from corn and coconuts.
- does not contain phosphates, dyes, toxins, toxic fumes, hazardous chemicals, fragrance or chlorine.
- Packaging is recyclable.

Clean credentials
- Nontoxic
- Natural
- Super Concentrated
- No Phosphates
- Biodegradable Surfactants

For All-Purpose Cleaning:
Add 1/4 tsp. tp 16 oz. of water

Even tho I use water-proof mattress pads I still find the mattress will smell after a diaper leaks or worse someone gets sick all over. To disinfect AND get rid of the smell I use Basic G {Germicide}.

The safest disinfectant on the market! Nonflammable, Biodegradable & Non-toxic. Cleans, Disinfects & Deodorizes in 1 Easy Step!

(Once mixed, use in 30 days)

Mix 3/8 teaspoon to 16 oz spray bottle.

Mix 1 tablespoon to 1 gallon of water.

All I do is spray the mattress and let it sit for a few minutes then wipe it off.

Basic-G has a 3 year shelf life. Its residual effectiveness lasts up to three days after application. Chlorine (bleach) used as a disinfectant is effective no more than one hour. Great wherever disinfectants are used! Kills up to 99% of bacteria.

  1. Thanks for these tips, Sarah! It’s really important for the parents to make sure that the cleaning agents they plan to use are safe. Babies are very sensitive to most chemicals that we normally take for granted, and it would be bad if they cannot be safe in their home at all. It’s good that you found products that can save you from those worries. All the best!
