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—just like these items that help you keep your car organized. 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? According to Sean Parry, a cleaning expert for Neat Services, baby wipes are actually perfect for cleaning all types of leather—including your sofa! “The beauty of wet wipes is that they don’t contain any nasty chemicals that could discolor leather. So they’re very effective at wiping any dirt or stains on leather sofas for example. Simply wipe over the area in question a couple of times and any superficial stains should be easily removed,” instructs Parry. Not to mention baby wipes “also give a great shine once dry!”
