I can’t tell you how many times my husband and I have discussed the many amazing uses for baby wipes and wondered aloud how on earth we lived without a package in the car, the living room, and the bathroom before there were small, always-sticky humans living under our roof.

Basically, I’m unsurprised that we’re not alone in our baby wipe love. Below are 7 reasons you should stock up, baby or not.

#7. Detail your car.

Dust, smudges, whatever your kid spilled most recently, or that coffee you sloshed during the morning rush – a baby wipe makes them all disappear!

#6. Smudges

Your doors, your windows, your appliances – if you have kids, every surface is covered (and if you have stainless appliances, forget about keeping them clean without wipes!).

Guess what? Smudges don’t disappear when your kids age out of diapers.

#5. Keep the toys clean(er).

Aside from regular dust buildup, there’s literally always some kind of gunk on toys that pass through toddler’s hands (and often mouths) on a daily basis.

#4. A quick wipe-down.

If company shows up unexpectedly and there’s no time to do a good cleaning, wipes will make everything – even your bathroom – presentable. If you have boys, just keep some in there for everyday use.

#3. Personal care.

They’ll take off runny makeup or tidy the hair dye off your forehead in your moment of need. One more reason to keep them in the bathroom.

#2. A gym bag essential.

Underarms, sweaty face, sweaty nethers…you can’t do a quick freshen up easier than a wipe in your gym bag. Also, it’s good for wiping your headphones and equipment!

#1. Dusting.

Literally, the only reason my kid’s nursery ever got dusted for the first 6 months of his life was the proximity of baby wipes. Easy to grab and they work like a charm.

Time to buy some stock!
