Use baby wipes for quick, on-the-move cleanups
Baby wipes can be used for more than just cleaning babies’ bottoms. They’re great for wiping your hands after pumping gas, mopping up small spills in the car, and cooling your sweaty brow after a run. In fact, wipes make ideal travel companions. Next time you set off on the road, pack a small stack of baby wipes in a tightly closed self-sealing sandwich bag and put it in the glove compartment of your car or in your purse or knapsack.
Shine your shoes and purse
Many moms know that a baby wipe does a pretty good job of brightening a kiddo’s white leather shoes. But did you ever think of using one to put the shine back in your leather pumps or pocketbook—especially with that 10 a.m. meeting fast approaching?
Recycle as dust cloths
Who knew? Some brands of baby wipes—Huggies, for instance—can be laundered and reused as dust cloths and cleaning rags for when you straighten up. It probably goes without saying, but only “mildly” soiled wipes should be considered candidates for laundering.
