How To Clean A Play Yard

Let’s think about everything that goes on in a play yard.  Babies eat, drink, drool, teethe, play, sleep, pee pee and poo poo, (yes, we said that).  All of this can create a germ-filled and pretty dirty play yard.

Cleaning a play yard is not so easy. Not only are we going to tell you how to clean them, we are also going to show you a video on how to clean them. This you have to see!

First, fill a bathtub with hot boiling water add baking soda, vinegar and laundry soap. You can’t use everyday cleaners — they may be toxic for babies.  Then put all the components of the play yard in the tub and soak it for about an hour. After an hour, go back to the bathroom to turn it over to clean the flip side. Oh and don’t be too grossed out by what you see!  The water will be dark brown and filthy.  To think your little one was sleeping in this! After you soak the play yard, bring it outside and rinse with a hose. Then, let it stay outside until it is dry. (Hopefully it isn’t winter and 20 degrees.) You may want to repeat!

Another option for keeping your play yard clean is pretty simple. Just use a washable COVERPLAY slipcover!! The COVERPLAY slipcover lines the inside and outside of the play yard, keeping your baby protected from ick and yuck.  After the COVERPLAY slipcover gets dirty, toss it in the laundry. It is that simple! You can choose from a variety of cool patterns and designs that really make the play yard look great.

COVERPLAY now offers their own brand of SAFE and affordable play yards that meet the highest safety standards. COVERPLAY play yards are JPMA certified!

Keep your little ones safe and happy and use the first play yard slipcover designed for your little ones. COVERPLAY, as seen on SHARK TANK, is MOM created and WOMAN OWNED.

The Medical News on Coverplay

Here is what the Medical News is saying about Coverplay:

“Concerned parents have one more new product to add to their germ-fighting arsenal. A Los Angeles based company, COVERPLAY has introduced a line of playful play yard slipcovers that fit snugly over most portable play yards protecting the surface from germs.

“Play yards are convenient for keeping a baby or small child in a protected area, but inevitably, the play yard will bear the brunt of messes and stains that come with kids and nature. Without proper cleansing, bacteria and other germs could thrive. COVERPLAY slipcovers offer an essential solution for parents. The soiled play yard slipcover can be pulled off the play yard and thrown into the wash for a good cleansing. In a very short time, baby has a clean play yard to enjoy.

“COVERPLAY slipcovers are fun and fashionable, as well as easy to use to protect your child,” says Allison Costa, the creator of COVERPLAY slipcovers. “Parents always worry about what their kids are touching, but with these vital removable play yard slipcovers, you can sit back, relax and let your children play… at least until the next emergency arises!”

The mother of twin boys, Costa grew concerned after discovering how difficult it was to clean her children’s play yard. The resulting convenient solution was COVERPLAY slipcovers to make life easier for moms. With fellow designer and partner Amy Feldman, they created a line of play yard covers in over 20 different designs, ranging in price from $49.99 – $59.99.

Cotton Lycra Fabrics at Coverplay

Coverplay offers many of its designs and yard covers in cotton lycra fabrics. Never heard of lycra before? It is a really great fabric to use, and here is some general information about it.* (Or see our nostalgic, soft chenille fabrics.)

“Garments made with Lycra® have a number of advantages besides being able to stretch. Lycra® allows garments to be more lightweight, comfortable and breathable. It is quick drying and dyes very well, and it is resistant to bacteria, ultraviolet (UV) rays and chlorine. Static cling and pilling are eliminated in garments with Lycra®. Though stretch fabrics are not as durable as fabrics without spandex, Lycra® is the most durable alternative, offering a great improvement over rubber.

“It is quite rare to find undergarments, swimsuits and athletic apparel made without spandex these days, but Lycra® is used in a much wider range of clothing types. One of its most valuable uses is in orthopedic compression garments. Recently, Indian designer Deepika Govind has updated the traditional sari by using fabrics made with Lycra®. One of the newest innovations in spandex is black Lycra®, used in a new line of La Perla undergarments for women. Black Lycra® is naturally black, making for an extremely intense and uniform black fabric that resists fading.”

So if you want your child to receive the best of both Coverplay and cotton lycra, you are in luck! Shop at Coverplay today!
