10 Uses for Baby Wipes (That Have Nothing to Do with Babies)
Parents already know: If there’s one essential you should always have on hand, it’s a pack of baby wipes. But, surprisingly, this advice doesn’t only apply to those with kids. If we’ve learned anything from the packs we keep in our car, on the countertop or in our purse, it’s that the uses for baby wipes extend way beyond what you, ahem, commonly think. [Insert poop emoji here.] With that, we’ve rounded up 10 uses for baby wipes you’ll come to swear by.
1. Removing Salt from Your Boots
Just wipe ‘em down, then dry with a paper towel. Blizzards, schmizzards.
2. Cleaning Your Puppy’s Paws
Gentle on matted fur, but also a workhorse. (Because God only knows what he was digging for out there.)
3. Wiping Sandy Feet
The two-hour car ride home from the beach just got a billion times more tolerable.
4. Moistening Envelopes
Just wipe over the sticky part with your wipe and signed, sealed, delivered.
5. Dusting Houseplants
You’ll want to swipe the leaves of your philodendron carefully, but dust = removed.
6. Cleaning Electronics
Make your laptop, TV screen, iPhone and iPad like new, all with one wipe. (And no streaks.)
7. Spot Cleaning Your Couch or Rug
Baby wipes have just the right amount of liquid to massage out a stain without leaving a massive water mark in its place.
8. Removing Deodorant Marks
We’re not kidding—there’s no faster solve.
9. Removing Makeup
Raccoon eyes? Never. (Keep a pack on your bedside table.)
10. Averting Self-Tanner Disasters
So you got a little too much on your elbow. Don’t worry--just rub it away with a baby wipe. Immediately.
