Mel C says her top parenting tip is to get dressed at the last minute to avoid unwanted mess on clothing.
Mel C gets dressed at the last possible minute - so she doesn't get covered in snot by her child.
The former Spice Girls singer has a two-year-old daughter Scarlet with boyfriend Thomas Starr and after numerous incidents with unwanted nose debris, Mel only puts her clothes when her daughter is ready to go.
She said: "When you're pregnant, or when you're a new mum, everyone's full of advice. My top parenting tip is to stay naked until you literally walk out the door. The amount of times I've been working and looked down to find a big pile of snot on my top ... So now I get dressed as I walk out the door."
Mel - who has just released a new solo album 'The Sea' - insists being a mother is really hard work but, despite all the various trials and tribulations, it is the most rewarding job.
She added in an interview with more! magazine: "Being a mum is the hardest job in the world, all mums will tell you that. But when you get home after a hard day and you see that lovely little face, or you get woken up in the morning with a massive cuddle, it's totally worth it."
