Is there anything more cringe-inducing than when your baby’s pacifier falls on the ground? The inevitable ensuing wail means you want to get the pacifier clean as fast as you can. However, a quick rinse or wipe won’t get it truly clean – you need to sterilize to ensure the pacifier is completely germ-free. Pacifier sterilizers generally come in two sizes – a more portable size for only pacifiers and a larger size that can accomodate nipples and/or bottles. Most sterilizers work with steam generated from the microwave or an electric heating device built into the machine. More expensive sterilizers have different modes and settings you can play around with, too.
