    We put down a shower curtain under the highchair. Pick it up and shake it out/tip into bin and the throw it in the washing machine. We also have a dog who loves to help clean up!!

    I have bub in an ingenuity chair up on the work surface so the mess generally just goes on the kitchen bench which I wipe down after. Once she's bigger I'll use a high chair with cheap shower curtain underneath :-)

    I just used to put the high hair on the tiles and then wipe up all the food on the floor with kitchen wipes afterwards đŸ˜ƒ

    You can get messy mats to go under the highchair. Take it outside and shake it off then give it a quick wipe over.

    Aldi has splat mats ithink are around $8 and you can do what previous pp have said. Tip it in the bin and wipe as it's made of plastic. You could also go to spotlight and get a metre or 2 of that plastic that is used for covering tables with?

    We eat all of our meals outside so the dog gets what the little ones drop.... The joys of living in the tropics

    I bought a couple of cheap plastic table cloths. I shake it outside when he's finished and the dogs & birds eat what's left!
