Question:

How do I clean the breastpump kit?

Answer:
Before using for the first time, clean and sanitize kit parts: breastshields, breastshield connectors, white membranes, yellow valves, breastmilk bottles and lids.
CAUTION: Take apart and wash all parts that come in contact with your breast and breastmilk immediately after use to avoid dry up of milk residues and to prevent growth of bacteria.
CAUTION: Only use drinking quality-tap or bottled water for cleaning.
CAUTION: Do not store wet or damp parts as mold may develop.

2.     Twist and pull the yellow valves off of the breastshield connectors.
