Anyone know where I can get some good throwaway paper to put under the highchair at mealtimes? Like an extra extra extra large kitchen roll iyswim?

no to the kitchen roll

have you tried newspaper? The FT is a fantastic size

or get a piece of plastic table cloth (my local pound shop sells it by the metre) - much cheaper!!

cheapo shower curtain that you can shove in the washing machine?

I use muslins, easy enough to wash.

Thanks all.

Always seem to run out of newspapers unfortunately.

Will try the FT though as my DH is less likely to want to hoard it.

Ooh I like the idea about the shower curtain!

I always used a normal tablecloth - that way it's catch the food which i could empty into the bin, and then just put in the wash.

I used an offcut of lino, which could be swept, wiped and rolled up ready for next time.

I use that vinyl tablecloth they sell by the meter - got mine from the Market. Easy to wipe clean, and fold up. I store it invent high chair when it's not in use and comes in lots of quite funky/fun designs

or a shower curtain? i used the last bit of a roll of incredibly expensive silk wallpaper (from a pal's hoose). it worked brilliantly.

Actually I used a cloth spun from the finest thread of mermaids tears harvested on a neap tide when the moon is blue. It's the most waterproof material ever made, shrugs off dirt and even cleans the floor while it's there.

Catering suppers sell paper tablecloths on rolls.

hehehehe. it was good fun, i admit, seeing dd1 cover this £500 per metre stuff in broccoli. silk washes down beautifully, i must say.

i used a splash mat thing so it could be wiped clean

i also use a shower curtain

Hmmm... like the shower curtain idea. I may even wipe the worst off and then shower it down.

I replaced our kitchen floor floor to vinyl, makes easy to wipe it clean.
