Here’s the original pin: http://pinterest.com/pin/134756213823335804/ but there are a million on Pinterest with lots of different ways to do it. This one is pinned to the OUTFOX board!
Here’s a before and after picture of the high chair and a picture of the final project (you can make it prettier than I just did). Actually, this is one of the least messy meals he’s had so the contrast isn't as severe:
Step 1: Buy a Container and Cut Hole in the Lid
Cut a hole in the top of the lid if you don't find one with a hole already. I had to use a knife to scrape around the edges and make it a little bit bigger so the towels would fit through the hole. It was just a generic grocery store brand. (Don’t mind our cheesy 50’s countertops. Renters can’t be choosers.)
Step 2: Cut Roll of Paper Towels in Half to Fit Container
A band saw if available is fast and usually clean :)
Step 3: Pour Selected Cleaning Liquid and Remove Cardboard Tube
Once the roll was placed in the container, I poured my chosen solution over all the roll in the container. I used almost the whole bottle, but you can be more conservative if you wait for the solution to be soaked up by the paper towels.
After the towels are soaked and lighten the grip on the cardboard tube, pull it straight out. It is ok if the towels pull a bit because we are making it to pull from the center rather than the edges.
Step 4: Pull Up the Center Through the Lid and Replace on Container... Done!
This was a great project! It works just the same as spraying and wiping, but who has two hands to hold a bottle and a towel? This will be a really fast way to wipe down the high chair after particularly messy meals. There are lots of pins with lots of recipes for different kinds of wipes, so browse for some if this particular one doesn’t work. And happy cleaning!
