WFMW: Easy Kid/Highchair Clean-up

This may be one of those "doesn't-everybody-do-that" things, but I just figured it out with child #2. I've always been a little slow on the upswing.

Anyway, I keep a box of wipes in the kitchen next to the highchair. At the moment, it's the Huggies Clean Team wipes because I have a buttload of them. No pun intended. Okay, slight pun intended.

Soooo, moving on, when Grayson finishes smearing his food all over himself and the highchair eating, I just take a wipe, clean him up, then wipe down the highchair. Then throw the disgusting wipe in the garbage before your child can try to eat it. Oh, wait...is that just mine?

Super easy clean-up! And still pretty frugal when you can get wipes for $.14 a pack. Works for me!

Skip on over to Shannon's Rocks in my Dryer for more great Works for Me Wednesday tips.


  1. Okay, I'm on child #5 and I had never thought of that - GREAT idea!

  2. Good idea!! I hate the highchair clean-up. I did it so often with my 1st child, but then by the time my 3rd came along the thing would get so nasty! I felt like I needed to soak the entire highchair in bleach to ever get it clean. I switched him to a booster because it is a little to clean!

  3. So easy, yet I have never thought of it before! Thanks for the tip! :)


  4. Love, love, love wipes! They work so nicely. Great tip. :)

  5. ok, came here by this, but found the sheet/pillowcase idea and I LOVE IT! Thanks for both tips!!


Tell me what you think...go on, I can take it!
