Canadian Quick Questions: What Are Your Alternative Uses for Baby Wipes?

With the great deal on Huggies Baby Wipes at Shoppers Drug Mart this week, many people without babies are buying them.

What do you use your baby wipes for other than on your children?

I love using the tubs for sorting coupons, they are the perfect size for most coupons.  The wipes are perfect for cleaning up in the car, removing makeup and especially removing hairdye marks when colouring your hair.

    I buy the Kirkland unscented wipes from Costco. Use them for wiping down counters, wiping up spills (sticky ones when a paper towel just isn’t enough), wiping down dusty places like the top of my range hood above the oven…the list goes on! When my youngest is out of diapers (which will be soon I think) I will be sad to give up the wipes LOL

  8. Christine says:

    I used them to clean the inside of my car. I always leave a container in the car specially for long trips or short ones cuz who knows something may spill

  9. Jenn says:

    I too use the empty tubs for coupons. I also use the tubs for crayons, and my kids’ office and art supplies.

    I used to use the wipes for travel use, before they came out with antibacterial wipes and and sanitizers. I brought them to wipe down baby highchairs at restaurants and shopping carts. I used to, and still do, take them on our outdoor day trips to wipe our hands.

    It’s good dinner napkins especially with finger food like after a bag of Cheetos or even BBQ. I also pack for long distance travel. Especially on board of flights.

  12. Beth says:

    @Angie Why would you give them up, we still buy them without a diaper wearing child in the house.

  16. Scarecrow says:

    Nothing, since they were all sold out at several locations

    I use them as TP when I go camping. Also great to use to clean up and prevent hot spots foe those ppl with dogs who swim a lot and get skin rashes.

  18. Julia says:

    I literally just said to my mother in law today how I now use baby wipes for everything! My main alternative use though is to wipe my makeup off! It’s perfect!:)

  19. Judith says:

    Of course, I use the UNSCENTED variety for taking off makeup at night!!! THE BEST!

    I use the containers for a lot of things! I have an empty Pampers tub next to my computer that I use to store cut-out Pampers GTG codes and also Huggies ETR codes (until I get around to entering them on the websites). At my old daycare (I’m a preschool teacher) we used to use the tubs to store small jigsaw puzzles for kids that either didn’t have boxes or had broken boxes. We’d cut the image off the (broken) box and tape it to the baby wipe tub, then put the pieces inside the tub for sturdy storage. My daughter uses empty wipe boxes for her own pretend kits, like doctor kits, etc.

    I use them to clean my makeup brushes. Saw this tip from a makeup artist on CityLine recently.

  22. LDC says:

  26. skinnyminnie007 says:

    after having kids and using wipes i would never give them up. My kids are long past diapers and i still continue to buy them. So many uses!! And love the tubs also for crafts, crayons, markers.

  27. Tina says:

    Also good for removing insect repellant & suntan lotion from your skin if you don’t have time to shower.

  28. La says:

    for all you gals using it to remove your makeup, KEEP IT AWAY FROM YOUR EYES. There are wipes formulated for faces and makeup; might want to rethink that use.

  29. Patricia Benner says:

    I keep a box in the car, they are great for wiping off the steering wheel and dash. Doesn’t harm the finish and does a great job
