This week I’ve teamed up with the sterilising and hygiene experts at Milton for an exciting reader giveaway. Milton has been synonymous with hygiene and cleanliness for as long as we can all remember and we’ve been using their products in Ireland, the UK and beyond for over 65 years.

Have you ever encountered a questionably stained changing mat in a public baby-changing area? Or been handed a snot-covered toy at playgroup? Then chances are you understand the value of Milton antibacterial wipes and hand gel as staples in any parent’s changing bag. Have you survived either toilet-training or an in-house vomiting epidemic? Then you’ve probably used Milton antibacterial surface spray. 

Milton’s innovative product range includes two more clever mom-essentials: 

The Milton ‘Solo’ Travel Steriliser 

Milton Solo

The ‘Solo’ portable steriliser is a 2-in-1 microwave or cold water steriliser which sterilises bottles, teethers, breastfeeding equipment and plastic toys in as little as TWO MINUTES! Neat and portable this is perfect for holidays, day-trips and overnight stays.


The Milton ‘Mini’ Portable Soother Steriliser
 Milton Mini Giveaway
No more taking the germ-hit by sucking the dirt off a dropped soother, mom (we’ve all done it!) because Milton’s ever-popular portable soother steriliser, the ‘Mini’, will kill bacteria and viruses when you’re on the go. It will fit easily in your handbag or changing bag and is available in a range of pretty colours; purple, blue and green.
