Cribs and Mattresses

Your crib and mattress can be one of the biggest investments you make for your baby. The crib is easy enough to clean with some nontoxic wood, or if you're a supermodern mama, acrylic, cleaner. Then tackle the mattress with a homemade cleaning solution of two parts water and one part vinegar with a large spoonful of laundry detergent. The detergent removes dirt and body oils, while the vinegar deodorizes and disinfects. Scrub the mattress with the solution, wipe it down with a damp cloth to remove residue, and then let it air dry. Then store both your crib and mattress in a cool, dry place, awaiting the arrival of number two!
