Toddler Mom Summer Cleaning Hacks

Summer offers no shortage of fun! Between beach trips, weekends at the lake, parks galore, summer camp madness, and playing in the dirt outside, our toddlers are having plenty of fun! However, usually, big fun equals big mess, which is not as fun for parents to clean up. If you’re looking for ways to make your life a little bit easier while cleaning your toddler after a fun-filled day, we’re here to help! Keep reading for our best toddler mom summer cleaning hacks and the best multi-use products you can get to save yourself some headaches.

The Bigger The Mess, The Bigger The Fun

Messy toddlers are a part of life! Exploring is part of their nature and development, which means that the bigger the mess they make, the bigger the fun they’ve just had. While it can be a little annoying for us parents sometimes, this is your reminder to let your kids get messy and let us help you clean it up!

Sand, Sand, and More Sand

If there is one thing all parents universally hate to deal with, it is SAND! It gets absolutely everywhere, and it seems like once it enters your car, stroller, or shoes, it is nearly impossible to get it all out. If you’re heading to the beach or lake this summer and are looking for a great way to minimize the impact, we’ve got the best solution for you.

Innobaby’s Fish Scrub has thousands of little bristles that gently and easily brush sand off of your kiddos. No need to brave the public beach shower or cover your kids in baby powder, this scrub will do the same job with no mess! Keep it in your stroller, diaper bag, or beach bag for easy cleanup all summer long.

Drippy, Sticky Bubble Solution

Bubbles are universally loved by every baby, toddler, and big kid. However, bubble machines can overflow and become a mess, dipping the wand in the jug endlessly can be annoying and messy, and somehow, your kid will always get covered with that sticky solution.

The best way to avoid drippy, sticky bubble solution all over your child? Use mess-free bubbles!

Innobaby Spike Bubble Blower with Mess Free Botanical Bubbles and Dipping Tray - innobaby

Innobaby’s botanical bubble solution is mess-free, pops dry, is never sticky, and is great for sensitive skin. We’re even brave enough to tell you to use it INSIDE!

Plus, the bubble wand is so easy to use that even your toddler can do it all by themselves! The bubble tray stays upright (no more holding those wands or jugs), and they can dip, twirl, and blow all by themselves with no backflow!
