Even though my youngest baby isn’t a baby anymore, that doesn’t mean that I am willing to say goodbye to baby wipes. We still use them almost daily for other things around the house, from personal hygiene to cleaning.
You may have noticed that I am not a big fan of unnecessary ingredients and chemicals so for years I have used wet cloths, but then I discovered WaterWipes. WaterWipes are chemical free baby wipes from Europe that are made of 99.9% purified water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract. Grapefruit seed extract is great for all kinds of all-natural cleaning and is something that I use fairly often anyway.
Now I have the convenience of baby wipes with the natural ingredients that I prefer. They are also easy to find at a Target location near you in the baby wipes aisle.
25 (other) uses for baby wipes
For the kids
Maybe it’s because I have boys, but I have found that my kids are even messier once they get beyond the baby stage. These are just some of the ways that I use baby wipes to keep the kids clean:
- washing faces and hands after a meal
- wiping hands after playing outside
- cleaning food and dirt off the front of their shirt
- wiping down a high chair tray
- cleaning marker and paint off hands
- nose wipes
- cleaning face paint or Halloween makeup
I keep a pack of WaterWipes in the basket on the back of my toilet to take care of personal hygiene necessities for myself or the kids.
- wiping off makeup
- a final clean-up after using the toilet (note that WaterWipes are not flushable)
- wiping my cat‘s chin and neck after his meds
- wiping hair dye off skin
- freshen up when showers are unavailable (camping, etc.)
- removing deodorant marks from a shirt
- tame fly-away hair
For the home
We collect vintage Little People which can be pretty dirty after finding them at yard sales, the thrift store, even online. For this, I almost always use Water Wipes baby wipes.
- cleaning toys
- spot cleaning sinks and counters
- wiping off the dashboard of the car
- cleaning doors, especially around doorknobs
- wipe down handles, grocery carts, and restaurant high chairs
- cleaning smartphone and tablet screens from fingerprints
- cleaning that small area of the faucet knob where thicker cleaning cloths don’t fit
- wipe scuffs and dirt off shoes
- dusting cloths (especially after they’ve dried out)
- wipe down library book covers
- clean dry erase boards and chalkboards
This is just a few of the many ways to use WaterWipes even if you no longer have babies in the house. How do you use baby wipes in your home?
