Fun kid chore: scrubbing outdoor toys and highchairs with soapy sponges
Kirsten's tip for turning outside cleaning chores into a fun summer activity:
The recent hack "Hose + a disposable washcloth = outside bath" reminded me of something I did with my children. I received a couple samples of the disposable Dawn dish soap pads that have a scrubbing side and the soap built right in. When it was time for our high chair, booster seat, kitchen stool, and diaper pail to get a good cleaning, I brought them outside on the front walk, and gave each of the kids a pad, and let them clean everything with the hose. They loved the bubbles and playing in the water. In the meantime, everything got a good wash, and I didn't have to do it in the bathtub. I think it's time for another cleaning!
No need for a special pad; a bucket with a bit of soapy water and a scrubby sponge will do fine.
