If you’re a parent to messy kids, here are some ideas to make cleaning up that much easier, saving you time and money.

Fix jeans and save

Jeans can take a beating if they’re worn by kids. If you’re faced with torn jeans, it’s time to consult Pinterest. They have loads of easy tutorials on how to patch up jeans by sewing on pieces of fabric.

You not only save money on a new pair of jeans, but you end up with a unique pair of jeans that no-one else has.

Not the prettiest mend, but it’ll do. #patchwork #mending #sewing #kidsjeans #denim

Prevention is better than cure

When kids eat ice pops, chances are they make quite a mess of everything with their sticky little hands going all over the place. You can end up with melted ice pop all over the furniture and your child.

Why not make a hole in the middle of a paper bowl and place the ice pop inside? That way the child’s hands stay clean, and so does everything else.
