Make Up Removal

Using  baby wipes to remove your make up is simple, inexpensive and extremely gentle on your skin.  They work great for eye make up and mascara, and they're gentle enough for most skin types.  If you have an issue with allergies, especially when using commercial make up remover wipes which often have an extra scent added, consider giving non-scented wipes a try instead.

Use In Place Of Napkins When Out Of The House

Keep baby wipes on hand in your handbag or  nappy bag to use as napkins or wet wipes when out of the house. You can use them in the car for on-the-go snacks or anywhere else you get something sticky or dirty on your hands but don't find a convenient place to wash them.  I also like to use a couple to wipe off tables at restaurants if needed.

Wipe Down Bathroom Counters & Other Hard Surfaces

Almost any hard surface that needs a quick wipe down or light cleaning is a great place to use a baby wipe.  Keep them in the bathroom to use on counters, sinks or even toilet seats for little guys who aren't so careful when using the potty and miss their target.  They are also great for wiping down handles, doorknobs and even fixtures easily.

Stain Removal On The Go

Baby wipes are great for removing spills and stains right away when you are on the go.  While they may not take all of the stains out of clothing, they can help spot treat a stain right away so it doesn't set into clothing.  

Stock In Your First Aid Kit

Baby wipes are ideal for  first aid kits for cleaning minor cuts and scrapes, especially before adding a bit of antibiotic ointment and a plaster, when washing with water is not a convenient option.

Wipe Down Dust From Your Car Interior

Grab a baby wipe or two while you're stopped at a long red light, or waiting in the pick up line at school, and clean up your dusty dashboard and grimy steering wheel. You'll be amazed how dirty these items get with normal wear and tear, but it wipes right off with a baby wipe.

Dust Baseboards & Other Hard Surfaces

Just like you can wipe down and clean many hard surfaces with baby wipes, they are also great for removing dust. Give your kids, who are much lower to the ground than you, a few baby wipes and have them wipe down your skirting boards to keep them occupied and remove dust and small scuffs all at once.

Replacement For Wet Mop Pads

Cleaning your floors can get pricey when using a Sweeper with wet wipes, or a similar product. To cut down on cost of buying those replacement sheets you can use  a couple of baby wipes instead. It can be just as effective but with a much lower price tag. 

Clean Leather Furniture

Just like any other sofas and chairs, leather furniture accumulates dirt and grime, but you have to be careful what you use to clean it. Surprisingly, baby wipes are a great way to do a quick clean up.

Clean Shoes & Boots Easily

A baby wipe is an excellent choice to wipe off shoes as you come into your home to get rid of dirt, mud, grass stains and more.  They easily take off the grime and can even remove some light stains from white trainers with ease.
