I know that when I make crafts with my little sister, she somehow manages to get glue all over the table. It doesn’t seem to matter if we put newspaper down, the table just gets messy. I used to try just soapy water and a wash rag, and when that didn’t work, I’d resort to harsher chemical cleaning projects. It became a huge problem and when my sister would come up with some crazy craft idea, I would groan a little inside because I knew the clean-up would be treacherous. But with these awesome clean-up ideas, I can breathe a sigh of relief.
