Baby Wipes Clean Everything!

use this Pin it button to save to Pinterest

"Baby wipes clean everything!"

That's what a reader, Pam, said to me a while back, and I thought, huh, is that true? Well, she herself gave me a lot of examples, and then I became intrigued.

Over time more and more readers shared with me how they use these versatile and cheap cleaning products, explaining how despite not having babies anymore they still regularly buy these wipes by the case!

So over time I began to collect all these uses that readers told me about, and now as you can see I've got over 20 listed.

It seems only right to start with the uses Pam told me about, since she started this whole idea in my mind, and then scroll down to see even more ideas you can use beginning today. I feel confident that there will be at least one you hadn't thought about before!

Pam's Baby Wipe Uses:

1. Clean spit up off the carpet.

2. Keep a box in the car for faces, hands, spots on clothes, wipe the dash while waiting for kids.

3. Keep handy for messy projects, finger paint, glue drips.

4. Noses......

5. Quick wipes of the high chair, wipe down the bib.

6. Dog's butt.

7. Add to lunch boxes for before and after clean up.

8. In the bathroom for personal care, and for little sprinkles.

Wipe Away Deodorant, Make Up & Spray Tanner From Clothes

by Amber

I used to work at a high end clothing store. Sensitive unscented baby wipes were the only thing we were ever allowed to use on the clothing.

We were able to remove all sorts of things with just a baby wipe including make up, deodorant, spray on tanner, etc.

We sold a lot of black clothes and pleather but baby wipes didn't damage the color nor aggravate our high profile client's skin. Win-win!

Taylor says:

I Use Baby Wipes For Emergency Clean-Ups In Car & On The Go

by Dannette

Dannette says:

I carry baby wipes in my car and toiletry bag in a ziplock bag for emergency clean-ups.

I add a little warm water when I place them in the bag and they actually stay wet enough to use.

Keeping water bottles in the car can also help to moisten them if they are dry.

You don't have to throw them away if you just add a little water when you need them.

4-H project
by: Cora

My kids show many different animals in 4-H. Baby wipes work wonders for last minuet spot clean jobs on just about any species. Wipe nostrils, manure spots (ones that you only see of course four minuets before the class), wipe the fine layer of dust that gathers on the animals while waiting for your class. Dog poop left by dog before their class. Works great for a last minuet boot shine, great cleaner for saddles, bridles or halters that have gotten dusty while waiting for your class. Great for wiping off dust on cowboy hats. I'm sure I'm forgetting a bunch of other things we use them for but this is a start.

Must carry
by: Graeme Glover

Baby wipes are really needed to carry all the time because you never know when you will need them. It's much better to carry them every time when the baby is with you. I too agree that keeping water bottle in car is also necessary. I am also having the same habit to carry all necessary baby items that may needed while on trips. Well, thanks Dannette for sharing it. God bless you & your baby.

by: Anonymous

I agree that using them to help clean up caulk on your hands, equipment, walls, etc. works GREAT!

Also, I can't stress enough how important it is not to flush any kind of wipe down the toilet. It wreaks havoc on sanitary sewer systems and septic systems. Just please throw them in the trash (even if it's says they're flushable).

Baby wipes do work!!
by: Natalie

I can testify to this!

A few years ago we had a function at my home. The morning I was busy preparing and someone opened a pack of corn curls and the dust got all over the white table cloth! The problem is, if you try to dust it off, it tends to "stick" to the fabric. I couldn't take off the cloth to wash it with guests arriving soon. I didn't know what to do! Then I thought, let me try baby wipes, the result was totally amazing! No one could tell that the tablecloth was dirty!!

Now I make sure that I always have baby wipes available!

Clean kids hair
by: Nupur

Sometimes when kids are not well and want to avoid shower I give them good cleanup with wet wipe -- their face, neck area, hands and their hair. After that their hair looks like they had shampoo. Brilliant. Other than that very handy when you do house painting. Make up remover, crayon remover, kids dirty hands on wall, any mark on clothes, just use wipes. I can go on and on. They are brilliant. Clean kids feet before going to bed.

I use them for make-up removal, wiping electronics, my phone, stains on clothing, the list really is endless! I like Aldi's Lullibies- they're cheap too.

Baby wipes takes off marker ink, too.
by: Teacher Janet

I am a teacher and we use markers on our white boards. When erasing the blue/black comes off on your hands. By the time it is the end of the class you now have the blue/black scary hands. The students laugh at me. I use baby wipes to clean my hands, believe it or not they get clean.

The other thing is refilling the markers. What a mess that can be. Baby wipes to the rescue. It will clean up any mess and it is the only thing I have found that will clean your hands of the blue/black marker ink.

I always carry a pack in my bag to classes. You never know what to expect to have to clean up.

bird droppings off car's exterior paint
by: Christina

I attended a car care seminar a few years ago at my dealership. They talked about the way that bird droppings can damage exterior paint. They recommended using baby wipes to remove them because the wipes would not damage the paint or the topcoat. "What's safe for your baby is safe for your 'baby'", lol. I've tried it and it works really well. Saves you the cost of an exterior car wash in a pinch.

Plus I have one for personal use. All containers have are a different color so I don't get confused. I order multi-packs/cases of wipes via Amazon! (affiliate) Deep discounts! I use the unscented ones. HAPPY CLEANING!!!

Don't Flush them Down
by: Anonymous

Wipes do a brilliant job but all wipes, including so called flushable wipes, take forever to completely disintegrate and they should never be flushed down the loo. They can block drains, not just house drains but also main drains in cities. They combine with fat, form huge balls and eventually cause complete blockages. They float around the oceans, wash up on beaches and have been found in the stomachs of sea life. So please, think of the environment and DON'T FLUSH THEM DOWN.

Use this for just about anything.
by: Anonymous

Use this for just about anything. I use on carpet stains, bedspreads & comforters, lamp shades, and more.

Most importantly, do not try to swipe...just blot and use paper towels to remove the stain as this blots up the water from baby wipes.

It’s a no brainer; why spend crazy money on products that claim to remove stains.

Kirkland are my favorite because they are lint free. They're great for the craft room- cleaning ink off stamps, wiping away glue, paints, markers, dusting off the sewing machines, sticky messes in the kitchen, electronics, make-up, etc. Oh baby too -:) I should have stock in Kirkland.

formula spots leaked on carpet
by: Kelsey

I have a baby who unintentionally leaves little milk spots on the carpet (from a leaking bottle). Sometimes, by the time I notice them, they are dried and have already attracted dirt, leaving my carpet black polka dotted! Baby wipes are my lifesaver! Just take a wipe, rub the spot, and VOILA, gone!

For bathing
by: Mildred

When my son was in Iraq I sent baby wipes in a zip lock bag. He said he used them a lot, especially bathing. Sometimes that was all he had, sand was everywhere.

Beach Cleanup
by: Pat Lavender

We discovered a use by accident while at the beach several years ago. There were tar balls (or sticky oil patches), in the sand. Needless to say, the substance got all over our feet and the kids beach toys. We were trying to figure out what to do when I spied our baby wipes (even though my kids were well past the baby stage). They took the black gunk right off!!

We also use them now to help remove beach sand!

get sticky adhesive glue off skin
by: Cindy

I never stopped buying them. Buy in bulk from Costco or BJs. Here is one nobody said: get sticky adhesive glue off. Any type of patch glue on your skin like from cigarette patches, medical patches, etc. Also not to be gross but just as you use it to clean baby down there, a kid all ages/adult can use for #2, to make sure all is clean. BUT don't flush them. Put in waste basket or you will mess up your cesspool. You should never put any form of wipe in toilet in case you didn't know.

To blow my nose
by: Joyce

When I have to blow my nose I like the wipes because I can get my nose area cleaner, especially when I have a lot of "slime" coming out. It helps out the kids as well, because they tend not know how to properly blow their nose.

Handy Feminine Sanitation
by: Grace Licayan Rojo

Every now and then I have baby wipes in my bag to sanitize myself after urinating and it prevent foul odor all day and you need not to use panty shield anymore that causes irritation. Thank you for the baby wipes.

I always keep them in the bathroom
by: Theresa

I keep a box of the baby wipes beside my bathroom sink to take off my makeup. They do an awesome job and even remove my water-resistant mascara (I don't know if it'd take off water-proof or not, probably not, would be my guess). Sometimes I add my facial cleanser to the little tissue too, works great both ways!

I also use them to clean myself up after nasty bathroom visits on the john. Works as well for an adult as for a baby!

There are so many convenient uses for them in the bathroom that I never let myself run out! They are great for little wipe-downs of the sink and basin, in between the big cleans!

Fan blade cleaner

Wiping dust off ceiling fans.

Truck Drivers
by: Angela

I know truck drivers who use them for everything from cleaning up when a shower isn't possible (and that's fairly often) to cleaning grease off their hands (works better than soap and water on that sticky grease from the 5th wheel) to cleaning the inside of the truck, to wiping the dog's paws after a muddy walk to just about anything else. They're a necessity for my truck driver.

I also use them for cleaning the bathroom and removing makeup. I use coconut oil first to soften the heaviest mascara and eyeliner, then wipe away with a baby wipe. It's gentler on delicate skin around the eyes and the wipe gets it all off. No raccoon eyes after your shower!

Wipe off Cleansing Cream
by: Mary

I used to use wash cloths to wipe off my makeup after using a cleansing cream. My white cloths just got dingy and would not come clean; I used white cloths so I could bleach them, but they never got white again.

Then it struck me -- why not use baby wipes. Now I can wipe off my cleansing cream and toss away the baby wipe. I can even rinse the wipe, give myself a second cream cleanse and wipe again and then toss. They are perfect for this!

Teaching little ones to clean
by: Barbara

I used them with young children to help me clean. They are ready to go and I'd have my littles wipe counters, baseboards, doorknobs, almost any wiping jobs. They are so useful that I still keep them on hand even though my youngest is 14!

Shoes and window sills
by: Anonymous

Freshen up the inside of your shoes using a baby wipe.

Baby wipes are also perfect for freshening up your feet on a hot day or while traveling.

Use a few baby wipes to remove bird feces on window sills, then take the used wipes and bury deeply next to your rose bushes. It will serve as a mulch. Now of course you go and wash your hands . . .

Pepper spray accidents
by: Lynnr

My ex husband was a police officer and I worked in an emergency room. Accidents do happen with pepper spray or kids get hold of something they shouldn't. Don't rinse it but use baby wipes to clean off the oil contained which is what stings. Hopefully no one needs this tip!

Store baby wipes up side down
by: Barbara

I always store baby wipes and any other wipes upside down as this keeps the top ones moist.

Keep with art supplies
by: Kathryn Rayner

Clothes stains

Baby wipes are great to have on hand if something gets on your clothes while you're out. They have gotten out coffee, blood, ketchup and several other things for me. I, specifically, have always used Huggies.
