Baby Wipes: 7 Other Incredible Uses

Sometimes I wonder why these wipes are called ‘baby wipes’
because they can be used for so many other things that have nothing to do with
babies.  I remember telling a friend of
mine that I probably use more baby wipes than a nursing mother. This blog post
will open your eyes or remind you of other incredible uses of baby wipes.
Baby wipes come in so handy. I have the small pack so I can
tuck into my hand bag for use; the bigger pack is usually in my wardrobe. So,
if you are wondering- what else can I use baby wipes for? Here they are:
To remove makeup
There is absolutely no way I am going to be doing any bed
time facial routine after a long, hard and stressful day. Just when I think of
how sinful it would be to sleep in my dirt, I reach for my baby wipes. They may
not clean my face as thoroughly like a makeup remover would but they do a
pretty clean job especially on my lips. In fact, make up removers irritate some
women’s skins, duh.
Instead of a tissue paper
Y’all know how harsh tissue paper can be on your soft,
delicate and sensitive vagina skin. It is dry! In two to three swipes, baby
wipes clean ‘down there’ very effectively. And it’s sooooooo soothing. You
could get the non-scented baby wipes for that. I hear that the scented brands
irritate some people.
For long distance travelling
Long distance travel can be very stressful. The heat, sweat
and dust, arrrrrgrrrrrrh.. After four to five hours of road travel, you long
for some comfort. Baby wipes can do this. The cold, wet feel on your facial
skin is effective in calming down your nerves. Wipe your face, your neck and
your chest with them. If you can reach down to your cleavage, it would be
absolutely perfect.
For a quick clean up
For those times you spent the night in class; your friend
called you to come collect something at your house junction at 7 am; ‘Rural
Rugged’ early morning activity  or your
morning Man O War routine on camp, baby wipes do the magic. Wipe your face,
neck, ‘down there’ (front and back), breast cleavage and under your breasts,
your armpits and any other place you think you should.
To wipe off dirt on public seats
Remember that day you had nothing to clean up a really dusty
seat? You probably stood the whole time because no other person had a rag.
Shame. The boys sat on the dusty seats (stone me, please). Having a handy baby
wipes pack can save the situation; three to four of those pieces could serve
everybody in that room. Yaaaaaaaaay, you saved the day, go girl.
To clean up screens
Your gadgets need a touch of mild wetness. Your baby wipes
can help you to get rid of the dirt and finger marks on your phone screens,
laptops and players. You can also use them on your television screens and other
home gadgets
For your menstrual period
Whether you are home or at work,  urinating during menstruation makes it very
uncomfortable to wear your padded pant back on. If you are easily
irritated,  you could use your baby wipes
to wipe yourself clean.  It is also good
for changing pads outside the home.  You
don’t have to wash with soap and water to change your pad.  Local washing can wait until you get back to
the comfort of your home.
Bonus :
To temporarily hold down fly away hair
You probably didn’t know that you didn’t have to use that
saliva. Nasty! Get a wipe and with three or more swipes, you are done holding
the hair in place until there is a permanent solution.
Do you use baby wipes? What else do you use them for?
