Spring Cleaning - Scrubbing Kitchen Chairs

I hosted a baby shower yesterday and one of my priorities was to get our kitchen chairs cleaned. I knew we'd need them for extra seating and these chairs were coated with kid grime and food residue for the last three months (I try to scrub these down quarterly - more often would be better, but quarterly is realistic). So we took advantage of the sunshine this week and the girls had a great time playing in the water and getting the top layer of gunk off. I went out and spent less than 5 minutes getting the rest off.
Here is a picture of us getting started:

The girls fought over the scrub brush. Naomi liked standing in the bucket. Eventually Joanna got in on the action and Naomi started scrubbing her. Naomi got a talking to and grumpy, she didn't want to be in the picture when the chairs were all done. Here are three wet girls.

Overall this was much less painful than I thought it would be and the girls had a great time playing in the water on the deck. I'll remember for next time that they are great at getting that top layer of gunk off. And everything else gets nice and soft so I can scrub it off fast.
