  • Give him his own water-filled spray bottle and let him have at it.

  • Why not try only allowing him to get to spray things in the bath like a bathtime toy so he can understand its only at that time he can play this game, which obviously is safer being that its water. Idealy you as the mom should keep the harder products hidden out of sight out of mind of the 2 year old. He will forget about it once youve changed his habit over to become a fun time in the bath

  • I don't know why he does it but when saying "no" doesn't work, redirect. Give him a variety of spray bottles to play with.
