10 Great Alternative Uses for Baby Wipes

alternative uses for baby wipesOh 4 children of mine, what messes you make wherever you go!  As much as I love my children and think the world of them, they aren’t the best at being neat. While I would love to tell you that trait came from their father, truth is, it’s me. There is a difference though between me and my kids – I have learned to clean up my messes (well… for the most part).

One mommy trick that I learned early on is that baby wipes aren’t just for diaper changes. Baby wipes work fabulous for numerous occasions outside of diaper changing. I always keep a pack of baby wipes handy at all times – and when I say everywhere, I don’t just mean in my diaper bag or by the changing table – think kitchen, car, purse.
