    I'm wondering about ser/estar for this one:

    "Even when freshly washed and relieved of all obvious confections, children tend to be sticky."

    "Aúnque estén recien lavados y aunque se les hayan quitado toda dulce aparente, los ninos tienden a estar pegajosos."

    Cómo te parece?

    Hi Casey8.
    You will notice I changed your thread's title to include the phrase you needed help with.

    From now on, please write down the actual sentence (or a specific term, when applicable) on the title of each new thread you open, as this
    1) assists and is directly linked our dictionaries' Search function, and
    2) provides at-a-glance thread differentiation.

    Thanks in advance for your future cooperation in this regard.

    Please read our Forum Guidelines and Rules, available here.

    Now, my try:
    Aunque estén recién aseados y aunque se les haya quitado todo dulce aparente, los ninos tienden a estar pegajosos.
    Tigger ;)

    Incluso, recién aseados y habiéndoles retirado todos los dulces a la vista, los niños tienden a estar pegajosos.
