Care & Composition ... all you need to know!!

How do I clean and care for my Jellystone product?

You can simply hand wash, pop in the dishwasher on the top shelf, or even in the steriliser! Remove cord, blanket or wooden ring beforehand and always refer to the instructions specific to your product.

1 - Products made entirely of silicone (like our Rainbow Stacker) can be cleaned using a steriliser, placed in a dishwasher or washed with warm soapy water.

2 - Products that include timber (like our Moon Teethers & Comforters) or cotton cord (like our pendants, necklaces or dummy clips) can be washed with warm soapy water or wiped with a damp cloth.

3 - Products made of neoprene (like our Changing Mats & Wet Bags) can be washed in warm soapy water or if necessary, popped in the washing machine on a delicate 30 degree cycle. Spot clean beforehand.

Please note: Silicone is both tasteless and odourless but most importantly, will not support the growth of mould or bacteria, although it is always advisable to clean regularly to ensure you wash away any grime or gummy germs/drool!

What materials are used to make Jellystone products?

We use 100% natural food grade silicone which is FDA approved (USA Federal Drug Administration) and also Phthalate, PVC, cadmium, lead and BPA free, so not a nasty in sight - just soft, safe, gummy friendly silicone!

Silicone is both tasteless and odourless but most importantly, will not support the growth of mould or bacteria.

What is BPA free silicone?

When silicone is made without the nasty chemical Bisphenol A (BPA) it is described as BPA free which means it is completely safe for babies to drool over and chew!

BPA free 'food grade' silicone is also used in the production of silicone food containers and cooking utensils. 

With Jellystone you have absolutely no worries as all our teething products and sensory toys are manufactured using BPA free 'food grade' silicone tested to all relevant safety standards.

Are all materials non-toxic & environmentally friendly?

The BPA free 'food grade' silicone used in Jellystone teething products and sensory toys is most definitely non-toxic and while built to last, it can also be recycled.

When disposed of at a landfill for incineration, silicone is converted back in to organic, harmless ingredients: amorphous silica, carbon dioxide, and water vapour – no harm done to our precious environment.

What about the other auxiliary materials?

Cotton and Beech Wood can be easily recycled and there are also specialist companies who recycle Neoprene (used for our changing mats & wet bags), in addition to plastic, metal and cord.

We always encourage inventive ways to re-use Jellystone products and materials. With this in mind, please do not hesitate to return your product when no longer required. We would be happy to safely dispose of it for you or alternatively, re-use in a community art project or similar.
