Aluminium Foil? | Cleaning Hack

I have made no secret of the fact that I kind of love cleaning (yes I’m weird.) Having two boys who are part wildebeest means that I come up against all sorts of messes. 9 times out of 10 it’s nothing an all-purpose cleaner and a cloth can’t tackle. However, the other day I decided to let Aidan paint – yes I know I was already asking for trouble. Stupidly I bought him a ‘painting kit’ – yano the ones with a canvas, paint, brushes all included? Well guess what those paints are NOT WASHABLE! I repeat NOT WASHABLE!

I took him up to the bath and the child was raw after an hour of scrubbing and he still had some on him. It was more like glue than paint! I eventually managed to get him clean only to now face the highchair clean up. Nothing was working. NOTHING! Until…. I asked google – obviously! Any parent who says they don’t use google daily are lying.

TIN FOIL! (Or Aluminium foil – whatever you call it in your neck of the woods). I balled up a piece of foil and used a kitchen cleaner. It was off in no time – if only I had known this before I brought Aidan up for a bath I could have had him clean in 5 minutes too…. I’m joking!

Apparently balled up foil is great for cleaning barbecues too. Now I’m not suggesting you necessarily try it out at this time in the year but when the summer comes back around it might be a useful thing to keep in mind!
