Today, I had "scrubbing the high chair and booster seat" on my list as a chore to do during nap time. It's one of those tasks I tend to put off and we all know how awful those chairs get if not scrubbed down often!

I like to use dish detergent and warm water in a spray bottle for this task. Just spray it on, let it soak for a  minute, then wipe down with a wet rag.

But my spray bottle wouldn't work for me today so I dumped the soapy water into a bucket and just scrubbed with a rag. This worked just as well!

A toothbrush specifically set aside for cleaning works wonders for cleaning edges, corners and any other spot that needs extra friction to get the job done!

The high chair and booster seat looked so nice and shiny after just a few minutes of scrubbing that I decided to go ahead and wash down our table and chairs while I was at it.

Nice and clean!

What have you been putting off that you can do today?

Organizing and packing!!! We are preparing for a move over the next two months, and I really need to get with the ball game. Thanks for the motivation!

Great job on your cleaning!

Hope you are having a great week.

I had both grands today and I don't plan much of anything when they are both here.

Those highchairs and booster chairs do get icky, don't they? I read awhile back where another blogger was so tired, she put the booster chair in the dishwasher for a much needed cleaning that she was just too busy or pooped to do.

I've been thinking about what I can SCRUB ever since I read this. So today I took twenty minutes and scrubbed my stove and washing machine (which, unfortunately, is in my kitchen) with Pine-Sol and warm water. Thanks for the inspiration! I feel better when I work in short bursts like that than if I try to do a whole lot at one time.
