Veggie scrubber doubles as high chair de-gunker

Veggie ScrubBrooke's found a way to get the crusties off the high chair:

I am in love with my veggie scrub. (I'm sure the mesh bags avocados come in would do the same thing.) Both are great at scrubbing potatoes and carrots BUT the hack I found made me write to you. Our son's highchair/booster seat sometimes acquires a layer of caked-on food. When it comes time to take it (the chair) to a restaurant or grandma's it must be cleaned up. Wiping it down with a wet cloth does very little to dried oatmeal and tomato sauce. BUT add a little soap to the scrubbing mitt and the chair is clean in minutes!

EEWW GROSS! Don't you clean his high chair when he is done eating? That is just disgusting!

Oh come now, Sprout's Mommy. You can't tell us there isn't a speck of dried up something SOMEWHERE on the high chair, now can you?

I have been looking all over for a Veggie Scrubber (the glove) but no store seems to have them. Where can I buy one?
