Ever give your baby a plate of spaghetti and have it wind up on the floor? How about on your ceiling? If you are lucky, most of that mess remains on the tray of your high chair, but that doesn’t make it any less disgusting.
I’m not going to lie— food messes make me want to throw up a little. Especially when there are finger streaks in them. I used to try to wipe down Harlow and Mazzy’s high chair without looking at the smushed peas and streaks of peach puree directly. I almost dry heaved just thinking about it.
All this is to apologize for the photos you are about to see. You see, each month (for the past four months), I’ve been awarding the messiest kid (and the mom who had the foresight to snap a picture) a $250 Target gift card + Seventh Generation products to help them clean up their next mess. For our final “Mess of the Month” winner, I thought the kids should go head to head in a good old fashioned food fight.

Seriously, there is probably nothing that gets washed down more often than the tray on your baby’s high chair. Except maybe your baby’s plates and utensils, which is why it is so important to use a dish soap that does not leave behind any harmful residue.
Seventh Generation is the ‘clear choice’ when choosing effective eco-friendly cleaning products, especially their all-natural dish liquid. It just debuted a brand new look but uses the same non-toxic biodegradable plant-based formula with 0% dyes, synthetic fragrances, or triclosan. This means you can even feel safe if you ask your kids do the dishes.
A huge thanks to Seventh Generation for sponsoring “Mess of the Month” and handing out loads of prizes over the last few months. I hope everyone stocked up because you never know when a new mess might present itself.
As always, I suggest whipping out those cameras right before the all purpose cleaner.
