This is an absolute genius tip to Keep Under Highchair Clean, which I think is one of the most spectacular dad hack’s I’ve heard!

This one is direct dad genius innovation much like the ponytail hair vacuum thing! So after our first baby and learning how ridiculously messy it was learning to feed on their own pears, bread, meat and sweet potato. We found the food in such odd places and then spending half an hour cleaning up….

Hubby put a clean oil drip tray thing for cars under her highchair!  Plus we were clever from the beginning and got a cheap Ikea highchair. After the feeding frenzy, we just carried highchair & tray into shower n hosed. No cleaning. Left in the shower to dry and get it back out. We were fortunate to live in central QLD so we often sat her in those shells let her eat her mango, watermelon or the like and then filled with little water n she’d splash herself clean! 

Oil Drip trays are available at Super Cheap Auto and Auto Barn.

I remember being horrified when I went to life the heater vent behind our high chair one day, and discovered Colin Buchanan’s Vegetable Song living right in my vent. I was stunned, partly because no child in our house has ever thrown food around! We just had a plastic mat, designed for the purpose, under the chair. We could take it wherever it was necessary to clean and the carpet beneath stayed pristine. Two decades later my 17yo still has a halo of “stuff” around his place at the table. We don’t understand, because he’s a vacuum cleaner with food!

That’s hilarious Tracy but funny enough, there would be so many people in the same boat!

I heard of people who would just take the whole thing with covers, straps and all and give it a good hose down.
