Between breakfast, lunch, and dinner and your little one’s playtime activities, there’s basically no time to squeeze in cleanings throughout the day. However, one area you should really be doing at least a couple quick touch-ups throughout the day should be your baby’s frequently used highchair. As your baby is learning to properly eat (which means most of the food probably isn’t landing in his or her mouth), most of the food is probably landing on the highchair surface and definitely on the floor. So that means you need a fast-acting and safe highchair cleaner that you can use in just seconds so you can be on your merry way.
There are solutions specifically formulated to clean your baby’s highchair or an all-natural baby specific spray can do the trick — it really depends on what’s most important to you when it comes to cleaning preferences. Some solutions are vinegar based sprays, while others are easy-to-use wipes for when time is of the essence (isn’t it always?). Below, we’ve rounded up the best highchair cleaners that will leave your baby’s eating space spotless so you can prep them for their next meal.
