Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) October 17, 2013
The rooms of babies have a large number of germs, according to Parenting magazine. These germs include E. coli, rotavirus, cold, and flu. In order to reduce the number of germs in the nursery, parents should consider the Washable Playard Deluxe with Dream Centre by Ingenuity.
Parenting magazine listed the top four “germiest spots in the nursery.” The winners of this dubious honor were carpets or rugs, toys, changing tables, and stuffed animals. Carpeting and stuffed animals act like sponges for germs, holding on to all the germy items they come in contact with from diaper leakage to dirt. Toys go from mouth to floor and from floor to mouth. The changing table may have E. coli bacteria that came from dirty diapers.
Parents who are concerned with cleanliness should consider items that are easily washable. A vacuum, disinfecting wipes, dishwasher and washing machine can remove many of the germs. The Ingenuity Washable Playard was designed for parents who like to keep germs at bay. All the fabric surfaces of the Ingenuity Washable Playard can zip off easily and be washed in the washing machine.
“Even the cover on the changing table can be tossed in the washing machine, along with jeans, socks and onesies, for cleaning,” said Kyra Mitchell Lewis, Senior Marcom Manager at Kids II®, the parent company of Ingenuity. “It’s a big step forward for clean.”
The Playard also has other positive qualities. It folds and unfolds quickly, has an elevated changing surface that easily pivots out of the way, a removable organizer tray, and the Soothing Sounds Center with five melodies and three nature sounds. Convenient wheels make transportation of the Playard easy, from home to car or just from room-to-room.
The Ingenuity Washable Playard is available at Babies “R” Us, a carrier of Kids II brands since 1992.
