top tips for hygiene when out and about for the festive period

Our homes may not always be tidy (overflowing laundry basket anyone?) but we generally know which surfaces have been cleaned or not, making us feel a little bit more reassured that our kids are not going to pick up any hidden lurgies while eating, crawling, playing and generally causing their own version of household destruction.   

But what about when we're out and about? whether it's going to the local park, out to the local pub, or even shopping for that last-minute gift? 

After last year, we all want that this festive period we all want so much to be surrounded by our families and enjoy these moments together in all safety for our little ones.

Aside from regularly washing hands, we have some other tips and tricks to keep bacteria at bay and it all starts with throwing our handy travel sized Sticky Stopper, Milk Buster and Germ Zapper into your changing bag!


If you’ve come across a café or restaurant highchair that has seen better days, simply give it a spray with Sticky Stopper and wipe away any mess before securing your little one in for their meal (and to make a mess of their own no doubt…). We have a handy 60ml antibacterial cleaner at the ready for you here: Nimble Sticky Stopper - Antibacterial Cleaner Spray (

Dummies and Sippy Cups

These often-dropped items can be a pain to keep clean when out of the house, but we reckon our travel sized Milk Buster could be the solution. Give each item a couple of sprays then rinse with water (from a tap or your water bottle). Good to go!


Is your little one in the habit of sticking any toy (or keys, spoon, books, phone…) in their mouth? Yeah ours too. For any “toy” that has dropped on the ground, give it a quick spray with Sticky Stopper to disinfect, wipe then let dry.

Planes, Trains and Buses

Sometimes it’s hard to know when tray tables, bassinets and screens were last given a decent clean, particularly on the quick turnaround routes. If in doubt, a couple of sprays of Sticky Stopper will go a long way and our travel size is only 60ml meaning it can easily be taken through security.

Changing Tables

Busy bathrooms mean the changing tables don’t always get the attention they need. No issues though, simply spray our Sticky Stopper directly onto the changing table and wipe away to clean and disinfect the surface.

 What about little hands?

our latest addition to the team: meet Germ Zapper, our hand sanitiser spray that is handy to kill 99.9% of germs without leaving any sticky feeling on little hands and without drying them. Suitable for tiny hands from 3 months, that's your daily adventures sorted!
