Thankfully, this is something I have to do less and less these days, as Mini becomes more and more adept at keeping food in his mouth, and less and less likely to vomit up food and milk randomly. But since I know a few of my readers just had babies or have new babies on the way, I thought I’d share this tip that I got from (where else?) Parent Hacks a few months back for getting the food out of those textured high chair straps. The original hack suggests using a vegetable scrub like this one, but I didn’t have one of those, so I used a nylon pot scrubber instead like one of these:
All you have to do is unwrap one and take out the rubber band, put some soap on it, and then scrub off the straps. Seems overly simple, but if you’ve ever had to try to get crusted-on sweet potato out of a textured strap, then you will be glad you read this post.
