My daughter's sippy cups (Gerber) get stained so easily and forever smell of the juice that was in them. I've scrubbed them by hand and used the dishwasher but they always have that lingering scent of juice. Things like Sunny D and Fruit Punch leave bad stains that never come out. I've been told to use Clorox Bleach, but if the plastic sippy cups soak up fruit juice.....they would soak up the bleach! To me that is dangerous! This has kept my daughter from not liking milk because she tasted yucky fruit flavor with the milk! YUK! She finally learned to drink from a straw and drinks milk perfectly with straws! So, now she drinks from a straw at home, but what to do about daycare???
Really hurting for money right now, I don't want to throw the sippy cups away.....any ideas?
