Jessica Alba is a mother of three -- so when it comes to managing mess, she's a straight-up PRO.
That’s why we sent her on a mission to surprise very busy and overwhelmed new mom Cristiana with her very best cleaning tips. (That’s right, she actually knocked on her door!)
"I feel like I clean all day long," new mom Cristiana says. "But you'd never be able to tell!"
Check out the expert mommy tricks the actress and Honest Company co-founder had up her sleeve to remedy that problem:
TIP NO. 1: Attack Stains Immediately
When your baby inevitably stains his or her clothes, don’t let the stains sit!
"[Use a] wipe pretty much immediately when it happens," Jessica advises. "Just wipe it off the clothing right away."
Then spray stain remover on the dirty spot and let that marinate for a bit before throwing it into laundry.
TIP NO. 2: All-Natural Multi-Surface Cleaning Spray is Your Best Friend
Use an all-natural multi-surface cleaner (naturally, Jessica recommends Honest Co.'s!) on all the surfaces your baby will come into contact with -- like a play mat!
"Your child will be licking any surface," Jessica warns with a laugh.
So get ahead of those germs!
TIP NO. 3: Always Have Hand Sanitizer On Hand
This one’s a no-brainer!
Always have a mini hand sanitizer on hand (get it?). (It’ll be particularly handy for moms after a diaper change!)
TIP NO. 4: Dump Plastic Objects Into the Kitchen Sink
This tip is our FAVORITE.
When there is just too much to clean, throw plastic items -- like baby bottles, toys and bibs -- into the sink and let them soak in warm water and dish soap.
This way, they can get clean while you’re checking other tasks off your to-do list. Perfect!
And no, Jessica isn’t the only one cleaning in her house! Watch the video below to find out what cleaning tasks her husband Cash takes on. (Hint: Both she and Rach find it sexy when men do this!)
