Now that L'il E is eating food independently the area around his high chair looks like a Queen Street West sidewalk after a night of partying. It's impossible to keep the floor clean and I don't have the time or the desire to wash the floor every few days. Cleaning isn't exactly one of my strengths either. Anyway, I've recently discovered Swiffer Wet Cloths (lifesaver). Now I normally don't like products like this because I think they're wasteful and bad for the environment, but when you need to just do a quick mop up they're such a time saver. They even have a strip of abrasive material that's supposed to be a scrubber I think, but it doesn't work on the caked on sweet potato, blueberries or cereal.
If you're desperate for a clean floor but short on time I recommend it. Fortunate for us we just hired our very first cleaning lady. She starts on Thursday and I already know it's going to be amazing.
