What Is The Best Way To Clean Up Chia Seed Slime?

Cleaning Up Your Child

Use a damp flannel to clean your child first.

Cleaning Up A Small Tray

Tip the excess chia seed slime into the bin and place the tray and any resources used into the sink. Rinse with water and leave to dry.

Cleaning A Large Tray

Grab a bowl and use some kitchen roll to scoop the excess slime into the bowl, then tip the leftover slime into the bin. Use an anti-bac wipe to clean the tray.

Cleaning The Surrounding Area

Use some kitchen roll to scoop the escaped slime into the bowl, then use an anti-bac wipe to clean the surrounding area. You could always mop the floor if the tray was on the floor.
