Cleaning Tip For Those Pesky Sippy Cups!

Have you ever tried cleaning the top of a sippy cup?  You know, the inside crevice around the hole? 

Pesky huh!

I've tried several things but toothpicks work great.  Not the regular, wooden ones... they brake almost instantly.

The plastic, cocktail toothpicks! 

Just be careful not to fling the nasty goop in your eye. 

Yeah.... not fun.



  1. Great idea....thanks for sharing. I always stuck them in the dishwasher hoping the dishwasher would work magic.

  2. That would be marvelous if I had a dish washer :-)

  3. Necessity is the mother of invention and I'll say you were using your noodle on that one! I would have never thought of it!

    But those stoppers are so hard to clean for sure.

    Especially if said milk cup is sitting around for awhile...not that that ever happens around here!!

  4. So glad for all your tips although i don't think I'll ever need to use this one. *smile*

    Here's another one for those tight corners but not as cheap as your toothpicks.

    The miniature tooth brush thingies you can use when floss is not the best option. The look like tiny bottle brushes or brushes on a toothpick.
