How to clean our cot / bassinet mattress in 30 seconds

baby cot mattress that is easy to clean

With Numu mattress it is super easy to clean your cot or bassinet mattress. It only takes about 30 seconds, and then you and the little one can go back to sleep.

Imagine the following scenario - it's 2am, potty training season, your baby is diaper-free and you're asleep. And then... an accident! Simply take the mattress out of the cot, if you have a comfort layer or sheet on - remove them, rinse the mattress (frame and mesh) in hot water, or even lukewarm, if you could not be bothered waiting for hot water to come out of the tap. Pat dry, put back in the cot, and voila!

For comparison, other mattresses take a fair bit of work to clean, and at minimum require changing the sheets in the middle of the night, and then more thorough clean in the morning. Not great! Our good friends at stay-at-home-mum have provided a useful guide for how to clean a non-Numu baby mattress.
