The 8 Best Baby-safe Disinfectant Brands In Singapore

·7-min read

There’s no better day than today to level up the way we clean our homes. Sweeping the floor just won’t cut it, especially if there’s a baby at home whose hobbies include crawling on the floor and putting every object they see, inside their mouths.

While you may have physically removed dust or hair from surfaces and floors with a broom or a vacuum, applying a disinfectant ensures better germ prevention. Studies have also proved disinfectants to be indispensable in preventing infectious diseases from spreading at home!

What To Look For In A Baby-safe Disinfectant

You can go to any supermarket or e-commerce store and you’re bound to find a disinfectant. While they are all effective in killing viruses and bacteria, not all of them may be what’s suitable for your family.

For instance, having an infant at home means you should opt for baby-safe disinfectants as much as possible.

Cleaners, sanitisers and disinfectants that contain chemical additives can be particularly dangerous for young children when inhaled or when it gets in contact with the eyes.
