The Funny(?) Ways Kids Mess-use Things



We partnered with OxiClean to bring you this post, because they’re so often the right tool for the parenting job.

You wouldn’t use a dog brush and whipped cream to brush your teeth. Unless you were a kid.

“The right tool for the right job” is an expression that kids sort of take and run with… directly to the nearest trashcan to throw it away and then do whatever they want. Like play with the trash they just discovered.

So, once a kid gets a hold of anything, some pretty hilarious and unpredictable alternate uses can happen. Have a look and then tell us YOUR kid’s crazy mess-uses!

Now we want to add
YOUR story here!

Share a pic or comment with how your kid made a messy use of something. Post them to our Facebook thread, or use Twitter or Instagram and tag us (@HowToBeADad for both).




We partnered with OxiClean, because it’s so often the case that some of these “alternate uses” are very, very messy and kids are the worst things to ever happen to clothing.

Since parents aren’t big fans of replacing their kid’s wardrobe every week, for messes and stains, OxiClean is THE right tool. We use their product all the live long day, and have for years.

Honestly, it’s a little weird recommending their product to you, because it seems like such a monumental no-brainer for people who have to take care of the most inventively filthy people on the planet: kids.
