Saving Money on Baby Wipes

Wet wipes are just as great for personal adult use as they are for babies. I buy them initially in a container, and then refill the container with the refill packets. Wipes have a tendency to dry out, so as not to waste any I will mix the few dried out old wipes in the container with the new ones (which are usually very wet). This way, the drier wipes absorb the moisture of the new ones.

I also keep the plastic wrapping of the refills and put the wipes in it, around 3/4 of it, all except the top, where they are pulled out. This also helps to keep the wipes moist longer! Of course, I recycle the containers, and only buy refills for them as long as the container lasts. I keep it by my toilet for easy access.

P.S. The microfiber of the dried out wipes with some fusible webbing or fabric glue can be used as a patch material or reinforcement when sewing.

I keep baby wipes in the car for quick clean ups and hand sanitizing. Baby wipes can be washed and used for other uses later on. After about four washings the fibers tend to break down, but they are still usable.

Do you have a little one just learning to potty or want a better alternative to plain old toilet paper? Use one of the pump type dispensers for foam soaps/shampoos and place it near the toilet.

I make my own wipes! Cut a roll of paper towels in half, add 2 cups hot water and 2 tablespoons each of your favorite baby wash and baby oil.

I have a black sweatshirt that wasn't really dirty, it just had some white spots, as black garments often get. I have used baby wipes to take off toothpaste stains that remain after I try to sponge them off and thought I would try to use them to get these white spots off.

When buying baby wipes buy in bulk. That's what we do. We then use an older baby wipes container to store the individual package we are using. We also keep a container of wipes in the vehicle for easy clean up on the road and in our diaper bag.

When my children were young money was tight so I would buy bulk baby wipes and take a few out and put them in a baggie to have handy for quick cleanups when out and about. This saved me money in not having to buy the travel size.
