25 Ways to Use Baby Wipes + Where to Store Them!

The baby wipe. I wish someone would have told me years ago what a beautiful tool a baby wipe is. That it has a million other uses besides wiping bums. I wish I would have known how handy they can be in a pinch. I should have started buying them in bulk long before I had my babies!

I received compensation and samples for this post. All ideas and opinions are my own. 


Since having kids I have come to realize just how versatile these little wet cloths can be. I literally use them for everything! 


I love to give a big ol’ stack of packages of them for gifts at baby showers. I always attach a note of all the handy places I keep them. Having baby wipes stashed all over is one of my favorite tips for new moms. Here are a few paces I keep them that you might not have tried:


  • My purse (the one that is not a diaper bag)
  • The kitchen
  • My gym bag
  • The trunk of my car
  • Under the seat of my car
  • The garage
  • The porch
  • The laundry room
  • In the art supply bin
  • My makeup bag

Baby wipes are the best cleaning product ever. My babies are 9 years old and I still buy baby wipes and keep them all around for cleaning jobs!

I never though of using baby wipes for other than just a few things! You really surprised me here, I never knew they could be expanded to be used for so much more!
