Steam sterilizer VS uv sterilizer
There are two kinds of steam sterilizer for baby bottles: one is ordinary steam sterilization and the other is steam sterilization with drying function.
The way to use steam sterilizer is to put the cleaned milk bottle on the steam tray, pour some water on the bottom and use the high temperature steam to sterilize the bottle.
UV sterilization is the use of ultraviolet light to kill bacteria, just like sunlight sterilization. It is the most convenient and easy-to-use method to sterilize milk bottles, so the price of the sterilizer is quite high.
When choosing a UV sterilizer, mothers should pay attention to the fact that the UV light does not penetrate through the object, so when sterilizing the bottle, remember to keep the bottle top and cap facing upwards so that the bottom can be sterilized.
In addition, it is recommended to replace the UV lamp once a year or so, because if you don’t replace it after a long time, it will only have the drying function and not the disinfection function.
