I took the advice on the webpage in regard to the wiping clean with a damp cloth and I must say, I have been duly impressed with this simple action. At first, I was hesitant to get white chairs because I am a klutz and so is my child. In the last week alone (and what I can remember off the top of my head), we have spilled spaghetti sauce, baked beans, chocolate syrup, red and green salsa and coffee on these chairs. But a quick wipe with a damp cloth and they are as good as new. Will wonders never cease? Certainly not with the Gridley White Plastic Modern Dining Chair.
