Follow these tips to make the most of your Dr. Brown’s Deluxe Electric Sterilizer:
- Use distilled water in your sterilizer. Any other type of water, such as tap, bottled, and even filtered, may contain deposits in it that can build up around the heating element and result in a shorter product life.
- Descale the sterilizer for optimal use. If you have hard water, residual build-up on the heating element may occur. You can descale the heating element by mixing 1 oz of white vinegar and 2 oz of water and pouring it directly over the heating element. Turn the unit on, run until the mixture has evaporated and any scaling has been removed. Unplug it and rinse the chamber and removable water reservoir with clean water.
- Ensure items are clean before sterilizing. Sometimes bottles, parts, and other items can have left-over food stuck on them. Ensure the items to be sterilized are clean and empty before putting them in the sterilizer.
