Parents who own the ANTILOP high chair from Scandanavian retailer IKEA get excited!

Did you realise the high chair is dishwasher safe? Seriously! Actually we are sure that other brands are most likely dishwasher safe too. Why have we never considered that before?

One mum shared her findings on Kidspot, pointing out that the legs can’t go in the dishwasher though. So take them off first.

“The seat and the table are made from polypropylene, a plastic that is commonly used across the globe for many, many purposes including a range of household items like packaging, appliances and more. It is rated as safe for the top rack in the dishwasher.”

Kidspot asked IKEA what they thought of putting the ANTILOP chair and table top in the dishwasher, the company pointed to the official care instructions - wipe clean with a mild soapy solution and wipe dry with a clean cloth.

  • Good to know. Thanks for sharing.


  • OMG, this is amazing. I can’t believe how much of my life was spent cleaning my son’s high chair and inner cushioning. We also put a plastic mat underneath it so I didn’t have to clean the floor so often. Geez, things have come a long way.


  • I wish I could shove the whole thing in the dishwasher most night!


  • Our highchair doesn’t fit in the dish washer. I happy to wipe it and give it every now and then a good scrub.


  • I thought that the way to clean the table is to LICK it! (The chair not so much, wiping works). This is the easiest highchair to clean.


  • Not that hard to wipe – takes up a lot of room in the dishwasher!


  • I got these chairs because of how easy they are to clean. And no not in the dishwasher! Simply wipe off & done. Really couldn’t be bothered and don’t see the need to put it in the dishwasher??


  • It’s actually not that hard to wipe it clean.

    It’s so easy to clean this high chair.


  • I put as much as possible in my dishwasher.


  • This is great news for busy mums.


  • We put ours in the shower or under the hose. It seems a bit chunky and awkward for the dishwasher.


  • I just sit it in the shower and blast it. The hot water gives it a good clean and it’s super easy


  • I take it outside and hose it off


  • I had the amazing feed-n-read high chair. It too said dishwasher safe. But it never fit in the dishwasher. I used to either hose it down outside or would put it in the bath for a proper scrub. Also used to pull it apart, screws and all to scrub it!


  • I used to wash the seat very often. Cleanliness is important.
