Grim.

If you are a parent or know anybody who is, chances are you'll be more than familiar with travel cots.

They fold down, they pop up, and you can bring them almost anywhere.

One mum, however, has proved how badly we all need to clean our travel cots due to all the travelling they do... and yeah, we're going to listen to her.

On Facebook, Allie Fraze wrote that when she started cleaning this travel cot, the water was hot and clean.

... And then it became this.

Yeah.

Pretty dirty.

She explained what she did to clean it:

"I’ll admit, I was a bit of a skeptic when I read up on a pack n' play (travel cot) cleaning hack... Hot water, your favorite laundry detergent and a little bit of baking soda."

Not that difficult at all.

She also suggested taking the travel cot outside and giving it a "good rinse" with a garden hose before beginning.

Oh, and Allie also made very clear that the cot wasn't dirty because of smoke due to the fact that nobody smokes in her home.

Just some casual grim and dust then.

Lovely.
