How to clean babie's bottle with UV sterilizer?
The sterilising of baby feeding equipment and accessories is one of the most important, and time consuming, tasks for parents to undertake. As we move through difficult times together, parents have arguably become more aware of the importance of sterilising baby equipment. Traditionally, sterilising is carried out using water; either by creating steam through electric or microwave heating, or by popping sterilising tablets in cold water and leaving overnight. It's typically a complex and time-consuming procedure. Sterilising before every feed and then of course drying and cooling them takes time and when you have a hungry, crying baby waiting to be fed it is not ideal. Thankfully, there is a new way to get the same results, in a more practical way.
UV light sterilizer is electromagnetic radiation that kills microorganisms. It can sterilise all the baby feeding equipment you need, safely and effectively in just THREE minutes without any faff. We understand that it may seem too good to be true. After all, how can a process that normally takes about twenty minutes suddenly take only three minutes? We understand a change in method may be hard to trust, so here are a few reasons why switching to UV Sterilisation is a total game changer.
DO I REALLY NEED TO STERILISE BABY BOTTLES?
Yes. According to the NHS. They say it’s important to sterilise bottles and teats until your baby is one year old. This is because germs love hiding and can lead to an upset tummy, which isn't nice for anyone.
It is used in the Medical Industry
That’s right – hospitals use the technology for the sterilisation of equipment, rooms, and medical instruments. In fact, scientists and Medical professionals have been using the technology for over 100 years! Sterilisation in a hospital and other medical environments is of course extremely important, as it is imperative to kill bacteria and reduce the risk of any infection or further illness. Medical professionals relying on UV for sterilisation speaks volumes for the technology and its effectiveness.
HOW DO UV STERILISERS WORK?
Instead of using heat to rid bottles of bacteria, UV light destroys germs by breaking down their molecular structure.
It's UVC rays that carry out this massacre. These aren't the suntan ones. There are three different types of rays that come from the sun:
UVA rays: the ones that cause skin ageing and wrinkling. The bad ones!
UVB rays: the one that causes sunburn. The really bad ones!
UVC rays: the ones that don’t naturally reach Earth as they’re absorbed by the ozone layer. If they did, we’d all be a bit fried. The really, really bad ones!
But in the right environment, they’re actually very good and artificially created UVC rays are commonly used to sterilise medical and clinical settings like hospitals and laboratories. And they’re now branching out - on to the kitchen counters of new parents across the country.
These uv bottle sterilizers use LED lights to zap bacteria and have very reflective surfaces to bounce the UVC light around to ensure every area is covered.
