Toddler Tuesday: Spring Cleaning

It’s April, which means it is time to start thinking about spring cleaning. Spring Cleaning makes you want to deep clean your whole house from top to bottom, and open the windows to let the fresh air in. As a new mom, my spring cleaning is obviously taken to a new level as I consider what toys and items need to be cleaned.

When I think about spring cleaning for my little one, I think about the need to deep clean her high chair. Yes, I wash the trays after every meal and spray down the seat at the end of each day. But a deep clean, means taking everything apart and finally getting those straps clean! I was a little nervous on taking the high chair apart. Thankfully, it wasn’t too complicated and I could remember how to put it back together. If you have trouble remembering something like this, consider taking pictures as you take it apart, or google the manual.

There are a few tools you need to clean your high chair:

Meanwhile, using your screw driver and pliers, remove the straps from the high chair. Place the straps in the laundry bag and wash in the laundry machine on a regular cycle. Let the straps air dry or put on extra low setting on the dryer.

While the straps are washing, spray the whole chair with the cleaning solution and let rest for 10 minutes. Wipe clean after 10 minutes.

Once everything is clean, reassemble the chair.

Phew, that wasn’t too bad . . . enjoy your cleaning job, because it will soon be messy again when your little one eats dinner tonight!
