Cleaning the High Chair

clean the high chair

My least favorite item to clean is Simon’s high chair. No matter how often I wipe it down there is always dried on food stuck in every nook and cranny of the high chair. How 1 banana find it’s way into the all the cracks and on the straps I’ll never know. I’m always surprised at how much of a mess little babies can make and how quickly it takes over the entire house.

keekaroo3 I love Simon’s high chair because it has smooth surfaces with minimal seems and spots for food to hide but it still accumulates and gets pretty nasty.

Mr-Clean I recently received the new Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle and it worked wonders on Simon’s high chair. It’s simple to use but great for cutting through tough, stuck-on grime. I filled the bucket with water and then added the Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle. The special liquid get concentrate works great on all sorts of dirt. The bottle is designed to distribute just the right amount of concentrate into the bucket so you don’t have to wonder if you added too much or too little Mr. Clean. It’s simple to use, just hold the bottle upside down and squeeze. The once the concentrate stops flowing out of the cap you know you’ve added the right amount of cleaner.

I used the Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle and a sponge to wipe down Simon’s high chair and it worked so well that I just continued to clean the rest of the kitchen.

How to Clean the High Chair

Step 1. Use a dry cloth to remove any crumbs or free debris.

Step 2. Fill a Bucket with warm water and Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle.

Step 3. Use a sponge (preferably one with a scrubbing side) to clean away stuck on food and stickiness. If some spots aren’t coming clean leave it to sit for a few minutes with a little of the prepared Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle.

Step 4. Scrub straps and buckles well, if possible remove straps and let soak in warm soapy water to help loosen dried on food.*

Step 5. Wipe down with a damp cloth one final time to make sure it’s fully clean and reattach straps.

*Consult your high chair owner manual whenever dis-assembling or removing straps to be cleaned. Safety First!

    I hate cleaning the bathrooms, but also hate cleaning things like the high chair, booster seat, and car seats! This looks interesting although I worry about using harsh chemicals on my kid’s things.

    Cleaning e high chair was always a messy business. Sounds like this product really makes a difference.

    Ha! We have the exact same high chair! I find it quite easy to clean, actually, but I’d definitely like to know if this is a safe cleaner for the kids. I know we used to use Mr. Clean but not too many ingredients that were safe.

    I need to glove up and clean the sides, and bottom of my son’s highchair! They are all so dirty and crusty from his bananas and such.

    I would need a whole team to clean a high chair. Really. My mom used to help me keep my kids high chairs clean, and we chose high chairs that transitioned into desks so they broke down easily for cleaning and grew with my kids. I don’t like trick spaces that harbor germs and dirt. I need easy to clean products all around me.

    For some reason, I hate sweeping and mopping floors. It just seems like it takes forever to clear the floor, sweep it, dry swiffer it to remove the car hair, mop it, and put everything back!

    It is so important to keep the high chair clean and germ free due to how much time our children spend in them and the fact that in many cases they function as dishes, not furniture.
