Same. We have a ton of washcloths. We get one wet per child for each meal to clean them up.

lovemykidstoo I wipe down with diaper wipes. I keep a package right on the table and follow up with diapering, bathroom and soap and water

storybookending I buy mini washcloths from the dollar tree. They come in a 4 pack for $1. They are perfect sizes for hands and faces. We are not allowed to reuse so straight down the laundry shoot they go once used. I am unsure if a soapy water bin like Ariana uses would work here. It would sure cut down on laundry which isnít the issue because they are so small itís the folding part that is annoying! After they leave the table they might have a little play time but this is also when potty/diapering before nap happens so they also get an actual hand washing shortly after if not immediately depending on the time.

Blackcat31 The kids bring their plates and cups to the counter when they are finished eating. Each one is supplied with a disposable wet wipe/cloth. I help those that need assistance.

Then they use the rest room before rest time. Washing with soap and water, again with assistance if required.

So essentially it's a two step process as the pre-wipe with the disposable wet wipe is meant to help them begin the process of self-help and independence. Washing in the bathroom afterwards is the main method of washing hands and faces.

Ariana Individual wet soapy cloths for every meal that goes in a bin once they’re done.

I wash face and mouths with damp paper towels at the table to get the crumbs and gunk off. Then we all line up at the bathroom together so I can supervise actual handwashing.

Unregistered My kids each have a large washcloth. I go around the table and wash each of them, then let them go when theyíre clean.
