Three things are certain: death, taxes, and baby’s mealtime messes. The third is why the good Lord created splash mats. Mimi the Sardine’s expansive 42×42″ floor- and table-savers catch every stray dollop, spill, and splat. Plus, unlike most protective mats, they’re made from organic cotton, not toxic PVC, and they feature a water-based acrylic coating that makes them easy to rinse or machine wash. When your tot finally figures out that the mashed potatoes go inside her mouth, you can use the mats to protect surfaces from finger-painting and other artistic endeavors. Can we get an Amen?
