Instructions

  1. 1

    Wash a NUK pacifier with mild soap and water. Pay attention to cracks and crevices where dirt and germs can hide. Examine the nipple for wear and tear to prevent a choking hazard.

  2. 2

    Add 1/2 cup vinegar to a sink of water. Rinse the NUK and all accessories in the vinegar water solution

  3. 3

    Place a stock pot on the stove and fill it with water. Place the NUKs inside and let the water boil. It's a good idea to have several NUKs sterilised and ready for your baby. Let the water boil for five minutes.

  4. 4

    Remove the NUKs and place them on a clean towel to dry. Squeeze the nipples to remove condensation, if its present. Let the NUKs cool and store them until your baby needs them.
