Keep your breast pump parts clean and hygienic  

When it comes to sanitising your baby’s feeding equipment and breastfeeding essentials, you don’t want to take any chances. Quick Clean™ Microwave bags are a speedy solution for sanitising breast pump parts and accessories, bottles, teats, dummies and cups. They can be used pretty much anywhere – you just need access to a microwave and clean water.

How do Quick Clean™ Microwave bags work?

Medela microwave bags use steam to kill germs, common bacteria and yeast quickly and easily, similarly to a steam steriliser or bottle steriliser that use steam to disinfect breast pump parts and other accessories. As with all other sanitising methods, there’s a bit of prep to do – simply rinse the items you want to sanitise with cold, clean water, then clean with warm, soapy water before rinsing again. Next add a little water to the bag, along with your parts, and seal. Pop in your microwave and heat according to the instruction manual (a minimum of three minutes). Once done, carefully remove the water and the parts from the bag and dry with a clean cloth: for full instructions, see the product packaging.

Space-saving sanitising solution

Forget bulky steam sterilisers or juggling giant pans of boiling water for sanitising, Quick Clean™ Microwave bags can be folded up for slim, simple storage. But although they’re small, Quick Clean™ Microwave bags are surprisingly roomy, for example one bag can hold:

  • one breast shield/connector/valve-membrane assembly, as well as a bottle with cap or teat
  • two breast shield/connector/valve-membrane assemblies
  • two 150 ml breast milk bottles and caps/teats
  • two 250 ml breast milk bottles and caps/teats

Are Medela steam bags reusable?

Yes, each Quick Clean™ Microwave bag can be used up to 20 times, which means they’re economical as well as convenient. There’s even a handy panel of numbered boxes on the front of each one so you can keep a record of how many times you’ve used it – a smart idea for busy mums, particularly if you’re breastfeeding and working fulltime.
