Quickly dissolves breastmilk residue

McHenry, Ill. — November 1, 2012 — Medela today announced the introduction of Quick Clean™ Breastmilk Removal Soap, the newest addition to Medela’s Quick Clean family of products, designed for cleaning breastpump and breastmilk feeding accessories. Developed to support busy pumping moms and their families, Quick Clean Soap is designed specifically to break down the proteins and fats in breastmilk and removes breastmilk residue up to three days old in just minutes. Quick Clean Soap contains no added fragrance or taste that might discourage baby from breastfeeding. It is safe and hypoallergenic; clinically tested under physician supervision not to cause skin irritation.
Quick Clean Soap saves time and makes cleaning easy. It can be used to clean just a few things or a sink full. Just add Quick Clean Soap and let everything soak for five minutes. Without scrubbing, moms can be confident that everything is clean. Take a break, and do something else while your parts soak clean.
Medela’s complete family of Quick Clean products for breastpump parts and accessories offer safe and convenient cleaning options for every situation. Quick Clean Soap is best for use at home, every time you clean. Quick Clean Wipes are a convenient way to clean accessories between pump sessions - safely and quickly. Quick Clean Micro-Steam™ bags are perfect for sanitizing breastpump parts and feeding accessories a few times a week, whether at work, traveling or for end of day sanitizing. In only 3 minutes using just a microwave and water, Micro-Steam bags eliminate 99.9% of common bacteria and germs.
