10 Uses for Baby Wipes Other than What They Were Intended For

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Baby wipes have to
be one of the best inventions ever.  Moms will readily attest to the fact
that, even after you no longer have kids in diapers, you will still buy wipes
because there are so many other great uses for them. 


Check out these 10
uses that you may not have thought of:

  1. Use wipes to clean sticky fingers and
      Wipes are much softer than tissues and since they are
    already wet they are more convenient to use than a wash cloth with soap
    and water. They also are great for when you are away from home and need to
    clean sticky fingers and faces quickly.  In a pinch you can even use
    them to wipe runny noses because they are so soft.

  1. Wipe spots off of microfiber
      Microfiber furniture is very easy to clean, but
    sometimes a gentle cleaner is necessary.  That’s where the wipe comes
    in.  Baby wipes can work well in cleaning spots when you need to
    clean up a small spot quickly. 
  1. Remove crayon from painted surfaces with
      Baby wipes are a kid-safe way to clean what can
    otherwise be a difficult mess to remove.  Other harsh chemicals can
    be used to effectively clean crayon, but wipes are safe for the kids to be
    around with no severe fumes.

  1. Clean your rubber stamps when card
      Something in the wipe conditions the rubber stamp as it
    cleans the ink off.  There are other alternatives to clean stamps,
    but none as convenient and as inexpensive as a baby wipe.  You can
    also use a folded baby wipe on a paper plate and add a few drops of
    different colors of ink from a re-inker and use the plate and wipe as your
    temporary stamp pad for a custom color mix.
  1. Wipes work as a make-up remover.  The
    make-up industry has caught on to this trick and is now making makeup
    removing wipes especially for that task, but for less money you can use a
    baby wipe that you already have at home.

  1. Remove lipstick from a shirt
    .  As long as you catch it right when it happens, you can
    use a wipe to remove lipstick from a shirt collar.  It takes a little
    elbow grease, but it works when you need a solution fast.
  1. Use wipes for quick clean ups around the
      Keep a box of wipes in your kitchen for a quick clean up
    after breakfast, lunch or dinner.  Wipe your kid’s mouth and any
    spills or crumbs on the table all by using a single wipe.

  1. Use in place of water to clean hands if
    using a porta-potty.
      Doesn’t it always figure when you are at
    some sort of outside event that your child has to go to the
    bathroom?  It also never fails that there’s no way to wash her hands
    after she goes.  Baby wipes to the rescue!  In desperate
    situations wipes can serve as toilet paper too.  That is, after all,
    what they were designed for.

  1. Baby wipes are a convenient way to clean
    your puppy’s feet
    .  Do you ever take your pooch to the dog park
    only to realize that his paws are a mess and he’s about ready to leave paw
    prints all over your car?  Grab the baby wipes.  These work well
    to clean the mud and dirt off of your puppy’s feet.  Keep them by the
    door at home for those times that he comes in muddy from the yard too.

  1. Wipes work well for cleaning hairspray
    off of wood surfaces.
      Baby wipes have just enough moisture and texture
    to lift the sticky residue of hairspray off of counters and wooden
    cupboards.  Unlike harsher cleaner-based wipes, baby wipes won’t dry
    out your wood.
