Cleaning your child's potty regularly is must to help your child have a clean, pleasant experience learning how to make the transition from diapers to big kid undies. It's easier than you think it and you'll get it done in time to finish your TV show or get back to your book. Here's how it's done:
1. Empty potty contents into toilet
Carefully pour the potty's contents in your toilet. Be patient so you don't miss and accidentally spill urine and/or feces outside of your toilet. After emptying the contents in the toilet, flush the toilet.
2. Wipe down inside of potty
Use toilet paper to wipe down any remaining fecal matter. Discard of the toilet paper in the toilet and flush the toilet. After using toilet paper and discarding of the toilet paper, use sanitizing wipes and thoroughly wipe the inside of the potty.
3. Wipe down outside of potty
After wiping down the inside of the potty, wipe down the outside of the potty with sanitizing wipes. The reason for doing this is that urine and fecal matter spray will make its way on the outside when your little one is taking care of business.
4. Add 2-3 tablespoons of baking soda
When you're done wiping the inside and outside of your kid's potty, add 2-3 tablespoons of baking soda to the inside of your kid's potty. Doing this will help neutralize any unpleasant odors in your child's potty. Return your child's potty to its original location and you're done cleaning your child's potty!
