Halo Bassinest is a revolutionary product that combines the best of both worlds—a traditional bassinest and a modern bassinet.
It is a soft, breathable dome that surrounds your little ones while they sleep, keeping them safe and sound. It features a soft foam mattress that protects your baby from bumps and bruises, while the comfy padded headboard keeps them safe from falling. And with its convenient carrying handle, you can take it anywhere — from home to your grandma’s house.
You can use Halo bassinest as a travel dome system or leave it at home as an everyday crib after you’ve outgrown the stroller phase. And best of all? Halo bassinest is easy to clean! It comes with an innovative design that makes it easy to clean —as there is no more wrestling with hard-to-reach corners!
This article digs deep into cleaning halo bassinests, from canopy covers to mattresses and mesh. Let’s dive in.
Cleaning Halo Bassinest
As long as you don’t mind spending a little time cleaning your bassinet, you should be able to get it clean in just a few minutes!
Ideally, there are four main areas where you will need to clean your bassinet:
- The base of the bassinet
- The mattress
- The sides and back of the bassinet
- And the canopy or cover of the bassinet
We discuss them in detail below, but first, we disassemble the halo bassinest.
How to Take Apart Halo Bassinest Parts for Cleaning
The halo bassinest can be easily disassembled by undoing two screws that hold it together. Once the bassinest is opened, you can access the parts inside. You can do this quickly and easily by following these steps:
- Unfasten all of the screws holding the base together at once. Then remove the base from its match and set it aside along with all other parts that might get dirty during cleaning, such as the crib sheet, bumper pad and mattress cover, etc., but leave all other parts inside the box until after they have been taken out of their packaging.
- Next, remove all plastic parts from their respective areas within the base (e.g., crib rails). They are easy to remove as they don’t have any screws or fasteners holding them together; instead, they slide out of place when pushed down.
- After that, remove the mattress. Remove any additional fasteners holding down your mattress or other items into place at this time, including Velcro strips if applicable and any other attachments attached to your mattress or other items to help keep them in place while they are being cleaned. Then eventually, remove the mattress.
After you are through with disassembling your halo bassinest, you will have to clean these parts individually. You will start with cleaning the base.
Cleaning the Base of Halo Bassinest
The base of Halo Bassinest is one of the most important parts of your bassinet, as it serves as a foundation for the entire unit. You should clean it every week to ensure it stays in good condition.
To clean the base, remove all the attachments and detachments from the base and then wipe it with a damp cloth. You can use mild soap or baby shampoo to clean this part properly.
Cleaning Halo Bassinest Mattress
Cleaning your bassinest mattress doesn’t have to be intimidating. All you need is a damp cloth or sponge, clean water, mid cleaning solution, and a wet cloth.
- Damp Cloth
The most effective way to clean a Halo Bassinest mattress is by using a damp cloth. You should first make sure that the mattress is completely dry before attempting to clean it. Then, use the damp cloth to wipe off any food or residue that may have accumulated on the surface of the mattress.
- Clean Water
If you still see stains after using the damp cloth, use clean water and a mild cleaning solution to remove them. To do this, mix one part water with one-part mild cleaning solution in a spray bottle.
Spray this mixture onto your cleaned-up area and let it sit for a few minutes before wiping it away with another damp cloth or paper towel. The use of cleaning solutions can damage fabrics, so be careful not to overdo it!
- Mild Cleaning Solution (Optional)
If your mattress needs more than just a simple wipe-down, you can also try using a mild cleaning solution containing no harsh chemicals or alcohol that could potentially damage your baby’s skin or clothing.
Follow the directions on their labels carefully when applying this product so that it doesn’t turn out otherwise.
Cleaning Halo Bassinest Mesh
Cleaning the mesh bassinest can be a little more difficult than cleaning the fabric. So, you will need to be gentle with the mesh, as it is prone to ripping and tearing. Here are some essentials you will need when cleaning mesh bassinest:
- Warm water and citrus solution
The best way to clean your baby’s bassinet is with warm water and a mild citrus solution. Add 2 cups of warm water (or more) to a bowl or basin, then add 1/2 cup of the mild citrus solution to the water. Then mix well until it turns into a paste, then apply it onto your bassinet’s mesh.
- A clean cloth dipped in solution
If using the warm water method does not work well for you, try using a cloth dipped in solution instead. Then wipe the mesh gently until it is clean.
Cleaning the Canopy or Cover of the Bassinet
The bassinet’s canopy is a fabric designed to protect your baby from harmful UV rays, dust, and dirt. It keeps your baby warm in the winter months. To clean it, you will need to use a soft cloth dampened with warm water without a detergent.
You can also use a toothbrush to remove stains from the canopy or cover of the bassinet, if necessary, but be sure not to use too much force while brushing as this may tear apart some pieces of fabric if they’re not properly attached.
The other parts of the halon bassinest will need only wiping as they are plastics and won’t mean much.
There you have it! The perfect baby bassinet will make your life much easier and more enjoyable. But, of course, we can’t just stop there. That would be like saying “thank you” after a meal.
It’s time for some serious cleaning! So, grab some wipes, spray disinfectant on the mattress pad, and get cracking!
