Not only is dinner such a hectic time in our household, but clean-up is too. The nice weather is approaching and my kids want to be outside. I have to admit I want to be outside too. When dinner is all said and done, we have the clean-up to contend with. In order to get us outside faster, I need a product that will make clean-up easier and less time consuming. I feel that the Boon products fit my busy lifestyle.
I love my dishwasher, but I get a little disappointed when I see that I have to re-wash some of the dishes on the top rack. The kids’ bowls and cups are usually turned over and filled with gross water. It is such an inconvenience to go back and re-wash something that should have been done for me by the dishwasher. When I found out about the Boon’s SPAN, I was ecstatic that I would no longer have to re-wash dishes that should have been cleaned.
With the SPAN, all I did was stretch the SPAN over the kids’ dishes in the dishwasher, which firmly secured the dishes in place. The dishes were no longer tossed around or filled with gross water. SPAN has made the never ending task of washing the kids’ dishes efficient and effective, which has allowed me to go out and play with my family. SPAN is a product I can no longer live without!
Another product that is a must-have in my kitchen for clean-up duty is the FORB MINI. There will always be dishes that will have to be scrubbed or dishes you will need in a hurry. The FORB MINI provides a quick clean-up of those dirty dishes that have to be hand-scrubbed. My son was really excited about the FORB MINI. He wanted to wash his own dishes. The FORB MINI is the perfect size for him. He now is able to wash his own dishes and be excited about it.
I am impressed with the FORB MINI because it does not leave scratch marks on my kids’ dishes. I was using a rough scrub brush with bristles and the kids’ dishes are all scratched up. The FORB MINI is made of durable silicone brushes, so I will never have to worry about a scratch mark on our dishes again. There is also a compartment for the dish soap which I squeeze out while I wash, so I don’t have to constantly grab for the bottle of soap.
My kids are messy eaters and drinkers. I will have no more spills on the floor or all over themselves, thanks to the Boon Catch Plate and Catch Bowl. I love the Snug Spout and Sung Straw because the lids fit on most cups you have around the house.
These plates are perfect for snack time!
The Boon Grass is great for drying dishes. It is the perfect size for my countertop. The flatware and benders are great transitional utensils for my toddler.
My kids use the platter for dinnertime. They do not want their food to touch.
Life is easier and successful with the Boon’s SPAN and FORB MINI. I am no longer hand washing all of my toddler’s dishes. I can now trust the SPAN to keep my dishes still in the dishwasher. The FORB MINI is a quick and sanitary way to hand wash dishes. SPAN and FORB MINI are now available at Target.
A quick meal to serve for those busy evenings is the mini-turkey burgers. It makes my life easier knowing it is something the kids both enjoy.
