How to Use the New Medela Quick Clean Breastmilk Removal Soap

Medela has come out with a fabulous new product to make life easier for breastfeeding moms!  Their Quick Clean Breastmilk Removal Soap quickly dissolves breastmilk from all of your pump parts, bottles, nipples, and even your nursing bras & tanks!  No scrubbing needed - even on stubborn residue up to 3 days old!

For use on breast pump parts, bottles, and nipples:
- Separate all your parts (take the breastshield off the connector, and separate the valve & membrane).  Rinse the parts briefly before using the soap.
- Fill your sink or a large bowl with lukewarm water, making sure the water will cover everything you are cleaning.  As the sink is filling, add 3 pumps of Quick Clean Soap for every gallon of water.
- Submerge all your parts in the soapy water and let soak for 5 minutes.
- After soaking, rinse your parts thoroughly with clean water, and then air or towel dry them.

For use on nursing bras and tank tops:

"I credit my sanity during the first 6 months after my son was born to my Mothers' Gathering class at A Mother's Haven. The teacher (Jill) was an incredible resource of information. Her sweet but straightforward disposition makes her feel like your best friend/sister/mom all rolled into one.

She also facilitates our weekly Breastfeeding Support Group, and is available for private Lactation Consults.

Leslye: With breastfeeding, I try to encourage moms not to give up and get the right kind of help whether it’s from myself or someone else, as well as to reach out to family and friends for support. As fa…
