25 uses for baby wipes

Baby wipes should really just be called “magic wipes” or “everyday wipes” because they can be used for so much more than cleaning baby butts!

I’ve been using baby wipes for years – even before I had kids, and I cannot imagine living without them. They’re just so handy!

    I have been using them to wipe down my cat because he just had surgery and is wearing a collar and can’t clean himself. He just loves it!

  2. Susan

    Oh, and they are also good for cleaning out my dog’s ears. Very gentle and non-irritating.

  3. Helene Monette

    I cleaned my car lights and back-up cameras when they get dirty when I’m on the road.

    I’ve used them to spot wipe the floors, especially if I’ve found crusted caked on food like yogurt & dairy products from DS that requires lots of scrubbing. Also, have used it to clean between the venetian blinds, but best of all I like using it to clean the grease off from the range hood fans & cleaning underneath the toilet & tank (ugh, would rather throw the wipe away rather than clean a towel or sponge).

    I use them to clean everything. Just make sure you do NOT flush them down the toilet, or your pipes may clog & you can get sewage backup. Even the ones that say they are flushable can cause clogs & problems in the sewer system.

      Totally agree about not flushing them!
