Clean water and sanitisation contribute to your kid’s growth in many ways. However, your kid’s water bottle is a magnet for dirt, dust and germs as it’s exposed regularly. Thus, timely cleaning is very important as it removes the germs that breed on the surface of your child’s bottle.
We have compiled a few helpful cleaning tips to make the surface cleaning of your kid’s water bottle simple and effective.
