I don’t like doing dishes, folding laundry, sure pass it my way. But dishes, no thank you! Once the kids came along it felt like the number of dishes quadrupled with the addition of bottles, sippy cups, pumping equipment, and baby spoons. Even with only giving Monkey and Little Bear 1 bottle of day the counter would soon be piled with things that need to be washed. That is where the Playtex SmartSpace Dishwasher Basket comes in. Available for purchase on its own, or as part of the SmartSteam Microwave sterilizer this basket helps you clean and contain all of the little pieces of bottles and sippy cups.
The Playtex SmartSpace Dishwasher basket is not only great for bottles, it also is designed to hold the straws from sippy cups as well – genius! Divided into 2 compartments I am able to put the larger bottle pieces or lids for the sippy cup there to be washed. The top compartment holds the bottle nipples perfectly in place so they get washed but won’t get flipped around by the water pressure. My pumping equipment also fits nicely inside the basket. However the part I love the most about this basket has nothing to do with washing bottles, on the ends there are 4 small pieces that you can flip out to hold up to 8 straws for washing. That’s right those sippy cup straws have a place meant just for them to hold them upright and ensure they get clean!
Designed with a narrow bottom this basket easily fits into my dish washer beside my glasses. Once you have everything washed you can put the basket into the sterilizer to simply finish off the cleaning process if you like. I love products like this one that make my life easier and are useful in the baby, toddler, preschool stages and beyond. The Playtex SmartSpace Dishwasher Basket Available at many retailers including Babies R Us. How do you wash you bottles and sippy cups? What helps to make the process easier?
