My daughter is 7 1/2 months old. During eating time she loves to make a mess. By the time she is done there is food all over her high chair. I was trying to clean it off the other day with a lot of difficulty. I was tempted to pull out the old 409 cleaner and spray it down, but she will put her mouth on it and I don't want her to be injesting chemicals. Does anyone know of a safe way to clean things like this without using harsh chemicals? I looked into Melecula but you have to pay $29 bucks to join just to buy the products. No thanks! I'm just looking for a solution, not a way to throw my money away.

Do you have a dishwasher, and if so, will the tray fit into it?

I always washed my son`s off with hot soapy water. I just used dishsoap in the water.

A couple times he made a major mess, and I threw the whole high chair in the shower, rinsed it down, soaped it up with dish soap and rinsed it down again. Then I let it dry right in there.

Hope this helps!

If you're looking for a safer sort of cleaner, and don't want to join a business to GET it, you may want to skip on over to my Watkins website and get our Organic Cleaner. It's super-concentrated--one bottle makes up to 64 gallons of cleaner, and it runs under 10.00. Also, we carry a biodegradable degreaser, also super-concentrated. You can mix the two and use it to do dishes, clean walls, all sorts of things. No harsh detergents or phosphates.

I use it in varying strengths for all sorts of things--even washing my truck!

I too usually just put it in the sink and wash it with a rag and hot soapy dish water. I do know that there is some kind of spray cleaner but I cant remember the name of it. I saw it about a week ago in Walmart it was in the Infants Department by the sippy cups and bottles it is to be used to clean stuff that could come in contact with childrens mouths. I never used it so i dont know how good it is at cleaning but I know its a name brand company (Johnson &Johnson or Gerber) and its supposed to be completly harmless to kids.

Baking soda and warm water. Vinegar works too, but it smells. I like both of these options because they are cheap and usually something you have on hand. Also vinegar is a great fabric softener put some in a downey ball works wonders. And baking soda is great for whitening laundry...just in case you wanted to know what else to do with these things...LOL.

I keep a spary bottle with 1 cup of vinegar and the rest filled with water all the time just for cleaning my daughter's highchair! It only smells for a second while your wiping it off then it goes away!

There's also a spray cleaner called "Simple Green" that is safe to use. You could probably get it a Walmart or any store like that. In the summertime - I like to take my daughters highchair outside and hose it down!!

you can get one of those handheld steam cleaners, from the shopping channels for around $30, what could be safer than water ?

I I LOVE Simple Green, I use it for everything. I believe it's non toxic, leaves everything smelling so clean. I don't have to rinse it, especially if I only use a little or use it diluted.

I get mine at Costco, gallon size, and it lasts me a couple of years.

You can use it for laundry, floors, bathroom, you name it.

We just use hot soapy water. For the tray, I use the hottest water possible and spray it down (we don't have a dishwasher).

During the summer, we take the highchairs out every week or so and really scrub them down and spray them down afterwards.

Thank you all so much! I now have a clean high chair again, at least until the next feeding!
