You clean the kitchen and mop the floor so why does it look like a food fight palace? Junior just can't help himself from throwing every last piece of food on the floor when he's decided he's full.

Praise be to Mimi the Sardine for their vibrant and whimsical splashmats ($30). Place these fun floor savers under the highchair, the table or even on top of the table to catch every crumb, chunk and dripping. Made from acrylic coated cotton, they are machine washable.

Just wipe them off or toss them in the washer and forget nights of mopping.
