Five different uses for Baby Wipes

I am a little obsessed with baby wipes and I use them in so many different ways. If you are someone who is a little left of centre like me, then this post might give you some tips on different ways to use wipes. If you are reading along thinking I’m slightly crazy and that baby wipes should only be used for babies, then this post might not be for you. Below are five different uses for baby wipes.

  1. Make up remover.

This is my favourite! I got told that baby wipes remove make up so long ago but didn’t really try it until about a year ago. I can’t stand make up remover. I always seem to get it in my eyes and it definitely doesn’t tickle. Baby wipes are a great way to remove your makeup easily. They are so handy for traveling too. If you want to clean your face and there’s no sink, just uses a wipe and freshen up with some moisturiser and you feel so much better.

  1. Cleaning the car.

I leave a packet of baby wipes in the glove box and it makes cleaning the car so much easier. While my car is being washed, I spend the same amount of time wiping down the console, steering wheel, doors etc. They even work for glass (however I use a cloth to buff the glass afterwards so there are no streaks)

  1. Cleaning shoes.

Wipes are so good to use to clean the kids shoes with. They shine them up and remove marks. They make an ordinary job a lot easier to do in a short amount of time.

  1. Cleaning the house.

Baby wipes make cleaning so much easier! I use them EVERYWHERE. I clean my whole kitchen, fridge, microwave, sinks etc. with wipes and a little bit of spray. Also use them for a quick spot clean of the whole house including dusting, bathrooms, toilets, doors, and walls. Seriously guys….they work on everything! I am a bit OCD so this is a hygienic way of cleaning and I love it.

  1. Cleaning chalk boards.

Something so simple as cleaning a chalkboard should be a quick job, however I never used to be able to clean it properly. The chalk would just smudge around and it wouldn’t look good, no matter how many times I would dust it off. Using baby wipes removes all the excess chalk and makes it nice and clean again, only to be messed up within seconds! #mumlife

So I hope you’ve picked up a couple of tips for different ways to use baby wipes. If you are like me and use them often, please comment below with your top tip!

Daddy dates!

jack and daddy time

We are such a chaotic, busy family. I’m always chasing my tail and wishing I had more time in a day and a few more days in the week. Over the last year we haven’t been in the best routine and I noticed with all of the late nights, weeks away and constant craziness that we call life, Jacks behaviour had been a little bit different. His attitude was in full force, melting down over silly things and he just didn’t seem settled. His Dad has been working our travel biz and it’s great that it’s going so well, but he hasn’t been home every night to play and read stories, so I think Jack was starting to crave some extra attention. I’ve read so many times that kids tend to muck up more when they aren’t getting what they need, so we decided to start trying to fit in Daddy Dates! It doesn’t happen every weekend, but when we are home, Mike has started taking the kids on little individual Daddy Dates. Since doing this Jack has become a lot happier and more confident (because it’s not always Mummy and Jazzie with him). He feels like he gets special time with his daddy and it’s great for their father, son bonding. Jaz loves her Daddy Date time too. I also do something with the child Mike isn’t with so they get one on one time with me too, which is nice. Some things Mike has done for Daddy Dates include movies, sushi train, built a herb garden, time zone, haircuts and ice creams and he now takes Jack once a week to Karate lessons for some extra bonding time. There are so many activites you could do and even just a bike ride or walk around the block would be a great start. Kids are just happy to be spending quality time with their loved ones. I really feel this is important for the kids and although it doesn’t happen every single weekend, we try to do it when we are home. I also think this would be great for Nanas, Aunties, Uncles and other adult role models that are close to your children. We have noticed a massive change in Jack and I really recommend one on time for all of our kids.

Until next time,
