Baby I love thee!!

I love Baby Wipes, seriously love them. This is not news to my family and friends. They hear me rave about them all the time. But I just found a new use for them and need to share my love!!

Obviously, baby wipes are great for cleaning baby bums. We only have 1 little tacker in nappies now so you would have thought our stocks of baby wipes would be reducing...not so!! I think we buy more now than when Megan was first born and we stocked up (as new parents do in all the excitement, you know, 3 super-sized boxes of nappies that newborns grow out of so quickly!!). In fact, I think the ratio of wipe use is about 1:3, 1 packet used on bums, 3 pakets used around the house!

I use them in just about every room of the house. We have a pack on the dining table for wiping faces and hands after eating (not great for the environemnt, I know, but soooooo much faster and more efficient than face washers). I use wipes to dust-on the rare occasions that happens :), wipe finger smudges from the fridge and often the walls too. Yesterday I used them to clean the dusty muck from on top of the microwave and today hubby used them to clean the grease from the rangehood vents above the stove. Amazing clean- as good as when I soak them in hot, soapy water. We even used them on the inside of the oven once!

I am happy to share my secret, too, to all 2 of my blog readers out there!! I know you wont be rushing the shops and cause a huge change in my wipe-buying practises! They are just Aldi wipes. They have Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, which sounds lovely for young bottoms, but must be important in general cleaning too even thought I wouldn't have thought so.

On the downside, there are some things my super-wipes cant do...
  • Clean purple nail polish from my cream walls (thanks for the Alex!)
  • Mop my floor-  not that they couldn't, I'm sure they'd do a great job, I just haven't stooped that low...yet!
  • Prune my garden
  • End world hunger
Pretty much anything else, is covered!!
