FAQ Bath toys
What are the black spots?
The black spots, which might be mould spots (we don't know as we haven't seen it), can only appear if the bath toy has been wet/ moist for a longer period and not dried after use. However, we trust that you might be able to clean the mould off. Vinegar is a wonderful natural disinfectant and is safer than bleach. Please mix 1/2 cup of white vinegar with a gallon of water and let the toys soak for an hour. Scrub the toys down with a sponge and let them dry completely. This should help and if not all the moulding is released, please repeat the treatment.
How do I store my bath toys when not in use?
When the bathing toy is not in use, dry it and keep in a clean and dry place, out of direct sunlight and heat. Produced from 100% natural rubber latex.
How do I clean my bath toys?
The bathing toys should be cleaned by hand or in a machine especially suitable for rubber. They should not be washed in a dishwasher. For a more natural approach to cleaning your bath toys, use vinegar. Mix four parts white vinegar to one part warm water. Submerge the toys completely or apply the solution to each toy with a sponge.
What kind of paint is used on Kawan?
Kawan is hand painted with pigments from vegetables and plants. Due to the colours being natural, they might fade over time. The toy should be kept in a clean, dry place out of direct sunlight or contact with a source of direct heat in order to last longer.
Why are you claiming the bath toys are hygienic?
The HEVEA bath toys have no holes in the bottom as most other bath toys. This prevents grime and mould build-up inside the bath toy and keeps your baby’s bath water safe. The bath toys are free from BPA, phthalates, and PVC, which make them safe to chew on and bathe with, without harm from chemicals.

FAQ Kawan Teether
How can I clean the Kawan Teether and can I boil it?
The Kawan teether can be cleaned in warm water and mild soap can be used if needed. Do NOT boil it. The teether should be kept in a clean, dry place out of direct sunlight or contact with a source of direct heat in order to last longer. Due to the natural colours, they might fade over time. If there are splits or changes in the teether, it should be discarded. Very few children are allergic to natural rubber, however watch out for any allergic reactions, and stop any use if an allergic reaction should occur because of using the teether. It should NOT be cleaned in a dishwasher or microwave.
Can I freeze the teether?
It is not recommended to freeze or cool down the teether, as it can damage the baby’s gums.

Which pacifier should I choose?
Firstly, you have to choose the shape: orthodontic, round or symmetrical teat/ nipple. Then comes the size: Newborn 0-3 and 3+. For babies which like a very big nipple we do also offer the Star & Moon orthodontic LARGE model. It can be used from all ages (as the 3+).
My old and new pacifier aren’t the same size - why?
The "old" pacifier might have "grown" in size, which can happen as it is a natural flexible material. As natural rubber pacifiers are made from a natural material, it can change in colour and shape over time. It is possible that the pacifier you have has resized if the child sucks very hard, if it has been used too long (we recommend replacing pacifiers every 6-8 weeks) or has been incorrectly stored/maintained i.e washed in dishwashing machine. Therefore, it is often an advantage to have a few pacifiers in progress at the same time and to replace every other month. All pacifiers should be replaced every 2 months.
My pacifier is peeling – is it normal?
No, it is not normal that the pacifier is peeling. The problem can be that you might have used it for more than the recommended 2 months or cleaned it in a non-suitable way. All pacifiers should be replaced at least every 2 months for hygienic reasons – like toothbrushes. In order to ensure proper hygiene, the pacifier should be cleaned by hand or in machines especially suitable for this, and must not be cleaned in a dishwasher or microwave (unless use of relevant sterilising box). The pacifier can be sterilized in boiling water. We suggest you stop using it if peeling and replace it with a new one. It is also a good idea to use more than one pacifier at a time, in that way your pacifier will not wear out as fast and will last longer.
When is the right time to stop using pacifiers?
It is very individual and varies a lot from culture to culture, from parent to parent and of course from child to child. We recommend stopping using pacifiers no later than 3 years. And did you know that we actually can upcycle them and reuse and you can save money - read more here: https://heveaplanet.com/upcycling/
How to dispose of the pacifiers?
The pacifier can be disposed of as organic waste. However, you can also send us your old pacifiers and receive a discount on your next purchase here at our webshop. We hate waste but we love upcycling. Read more here: https://heveaplanet.com/upcycling/
Why does my HEVEA pacifier darken in colour over time?
The natural rubber used to manufacture our pacifiers contains no preservatives or antioxidants. Natural rubber changes in colour over time.
Before using for the first time I noticed the pacifier felt greasy and had an odour – is this natural?
Yes, our pacifiers have a fine layer of vegetable oil to prevent them from drying out. This disappears during the initial sterilisation. The odour is that of natural rubber.
Do HEVEA pacifiers contain nitrosamines?
Nitrosamines are found in natural rubber as well as other natural things such as avocado, smoked meat etc. Our products meet all required standards and tests show that the nitrosamine level is non-detectable.
