50 alternative uses for baby wipes

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Those many years ago when I was pregnant with my twins I was so grateful to receive practical gifts at my baby shower, such a nappies, lotions, Tupperware (maybe that’s when the obsession began) and baby wipes.  It wasn’t long after the twins were born I learnt that they reacted to a particular brand of baby wipes.  As they got older I learnt that they have very sensitive skin, both now have eczema. So I had quite a few packs of baby wipes that I couldn’t use on bottoms.  Instead I used them for other everyday purposes.

I created a list below of 50 alternative uses for baby wipes.

Please remember, using wipes as suggested below isn’t the most environmentally friendly option, using a rag, duster or microfiber cloth is always a better alternative.

  1. General dusting
  2. When you have run out of toilet paper
  3. When you have run out of tissues, use for your nose
