How to Clean Baby Items in the Dishwasher

Learn how to wash baby items quickly and safely in the dishwasher.

3 a.m. Waaahhh, 6 a.m. waaahhh, 12 p.m. waaahhh. Babies. You know the drill. They require a lot of feedings. And a lot of stuff. And all that stuff needs to be cleaned. And cleaned again after the next feeding. Here’s how to clean baby items in the dishwasher.

1. Ensure Items are Dishwasher Safe
Dishwashers are great for cleaning baby items. Unfortunately, not all items can stand up to the high temperatures inside them. If you are unclear if an item is dishwasher safe, wash it by hand.

2. Location. Location. Location.
Place bottles on the top rack, away from the heat source, face down. Your baby is cute, a melted baby bottle is not cute.

3. Secure Bottles
To prevent bottles from falling over during the cycle, check to make sure they are secure. You don’t want water to pool inside them.

4. Nipple Care
To wash your silicone nipples in the dishwasher, place them in a basket on the top rack away from the heat source. However, we recommend washing them by hand as they may damage quicker if cleaned frequently in the dishwasher.

5. Use Cascade Platinum
For best results, use a premium Actionpac. With dry hands, carefully place a premium ActionPac into your dishwasher’s dry detergent dispenser.

6. Heat Dry
Run the dishwasher on the longest drying cycle.

Your baby items are now clean. Just in time for the next feeding. Bon appétit!
