Your child’s highchair sees a lot of action.

There are the early days when formula and fruit purees rarely survive the spoon-to-mouth journey. Later, baby-led weaning may render your entire dining room a combat zone.

To make sure that your child’s food remains a contamination-free zone, you’ve got to keep your highchair clean at all times. However, because your infant eats several times a day, your cleaning regimen has to be low maintenance.

If this seems like an impossible dream, never fear — we’ve got the ideal routine ready to go. It all comes down to cleaning strategically and using great products, and not necessarily scrubbing harder.

Your Spring-Cleaning Highchair Maintenance Routine

Surfaces that receive exposure to food tend to teem with microbes, from Salmonella to Staphylococcus aureus. When cleaning your child’s environment, you need to select cleaners that target these bacteria and keep them from returning once you’ve finished your cleaning routine.

The most important part of your low maintenance highchair reset is selecting products that do the heavy lifting for you. When you’re cleaning off the highchair, go in with an effective all-purpose cleaner that will leave your highchair both clean AND safe.

Start by removing all detachable pieces. This will depend on the specific make and model of your highchair, but it’ll be easiest to get a truly comprehensive clean if you make the surfaces you’re sanitizing as uncomplicated as possible.

Use a clean cloth and an all-purpose cleaner to remove all visible food or other materials from all parts of the highchair. Your child’s food tray will likely have dried-on residue. An easy way to make this more workable is to spray on your all-purpose cleaner and wait a few minutes for it to work its magic. Then, go in with your cloth and wipe down the surface. Make sure to check all parts of your child’s chair, from the seat to the legs to the floor—particularly if your child is an adventurous eater, there are liable to be many affected surfaces that will require at least a quick wipe. The final step is to thoroughly rinse all treated areas with potable water.
