Clean every time: There is cheap, there is easy and there is cheap and effective. Clean every time you use the table - most important! the antimicrobial wipes are effective and easy, but cost the most. You can use a solution of simple bleach diluted 1:1 with water, this makes a great cleaner. If you use this as a spray, though, or any spray cleaner, make sure baby is far from the aerosol when you spray!

Soap & water: Soap and warm/hot water and you can use a disinfectant solution. 3% clorox solution (30z clorox in @97 0z water) great.Work.
