10 Awesome Baby Wipes Uses That You Probably Didn’t Think Of!
Now that my last kiddo is out of diapers (can I get a hallelujah) I have stopped buying diapers, but have still continued to buy baby wipes.
It is a small expense that I am willing to part with because there are just so many baby wipes uses that you might have not thought of!
With three kids, just because diapers have stopped, it certainly does not mean messes have! My kids are little professionals when it comes to turning my neat home into a whirlwind of sticky finger prints.
I love using Huggies® Wipes because they are gentle, contain just the right amount of moistness, and you get a ton in the packs!
I use Baby Wipes for everything around here, so I thought it would be fun to share my top 10 uses that you might have not even thought of.
Top 10 Uses for Baby Wipes (Besides Wiping a Baby’s…you know what…)
1. Hands & Faces:
The most obvious baby wipe use is for hands and faces. My kids get so messy when eating so having the pack of wipes around is a must. These wipes leave no rashes on their little faces and work well!
In fact, they are great for adult faces as well. Especially during a hot day when you might be sweating a lot. The cool moisture feels so refreshing!
2. Play Time Clean Up:
Having Baby Wipes for play clean up is a must. As a former teacher, we would request these wipes on our wishlists because they made painting, markers, and after snack time so easy!
We did not always have time to bring the kids to the bathroom in between lessons so these wipes came to the rescue!
3. Wipe Down Tables:
When my kids eat or even play with play doughs, they get the table area so messy! My son’s booster chair is a magnet for messes. I love that Huggies® Wipes are super thick and can be folded up to stretch their mess cleaning abilities.
I don’t know about you, but I find wipes so awesome at getting the dust off rough wood surfaces! I am not a fan of using dusting wax because it leaves film behind. A Huggies® Wipe can be rinsed and re-used to clean in between chair rails, and such!
5. Wiping Messes of the Walls:
Sticky handprint trails? Let Huggies® come to the rescue and wipe those little grimy prints off your walls in no time. Unlike paper towels, they do not disintegrate quickly!
6. Cleaning Your Car:
Don’t you just hate getting that dust out from car vents? I love to use baby wipes to clean my steering wheel, vents, cup holders, and shifting stick.
Of course if I had leather, I would think twice, but I have vinyl so all is good. I save money but not buying those pricey car wipes.
7. Wiping Pet Paws, and Bums:
Do you have a long-haired dog that gets poo stuck to its bum area? It may sound funny, but Huggies® Sensitive Care Wipes work well to keep this area clean a tidy.
I also use them to clean my dog’s paws in-between bathing.
8. Keeping Fresh:
The summer months are the worst for sweat in all sorts of places. Huggies® Wipes are NOT flush-able but they can be disposed of in waste baskets and work well to freshen in-between bathroom trips, and work outs.
9. Cleaning Phones:
Phones are some of the most unsanitary things we touch throughout the day. I love to pass a wipe over my phone at least a few times a week!
10. Cleaning Key-board Keys:
When you work on your computer pretty much daily, your keyboard becomes a host to crumbs, grime, and dust! I love to unplug my keyboard, and pass over it with a wipe. They get the yuck off really well, and keep my office tidy!
Other uses for baby wipes include:
- placing a few in your child’s lunch box for after meals,
- keeping windowsills clean,
- bathroom spot cleaning, and
- cleaning the dust out of your shower tracks.
It may sound funny but I use them for pretty much everything! That is why they are on my shopping list almost weekly!
