I tend to buy things and leave them in my car for a while. Either because I got frazzled getting the kids out of the car and into the house, or, was just lazy and only brought in the items that would spoil…and forgot to tell John to get the rest. This happened with some wipes I bought for Kaya a while ago.
They stayed in my car unopened in the Target bag on my passenger seat for a hot minute. Then I started using them in the car instead of bringing them in to wipe her butt. I used them to clean off my hands, wipe up a coffee spill (I stopped short cuz I thought I saw a cop car but it wasn’t), and I wiped down the dashboard and cup holders that were getting dusty.
I finally brought the WaterWipes into the house to use in its intended way and immediately loved them. I like using the least scented, chemical-free, most natural and clean wipes. (Fun fact: I went through stints of making my own wipes for a while. For both babies the trend lasted only a few months because: lazy.) It feels better using something simple and clean on their lil tender bits, ya know? The standard wipes smell so perfumey it turns me off.
The Wipes Bandit!
Sidebar: Kaya and I are in a long standing battle over wipes. If I forget to put them out of her reach, I am certain to return to a room blanketed in balled up wipes. I think she likes the pop up action or something. (I never had this problem with Rohan, he prefers to roll out toilet paper and paper towel rolls.) Anyway, I feel like it’s gross to put the wipes back into the package, so I will wipe down the entire house with wipes to use them up before throwing them away.
WaterWipes are my new fave now though. I love that they only contain water and grapeseed oil. That’s it! No other chemicals or fragrances, and still very strong and effective and leave no residue on my baby girl’s buttbutt. (That was my major gripe about standard wipes, the film they leave behind, and in my mind it contributes to diaper rashes…I don’t know if that’s true or not…but I FEEL like it is.)
I keep them up high so Kaya can’t go crazy with them, but I honestly don’t think she would. They are not interfolded so there’s no pop-up action on them for her to enjoy. I found out it’s because WaterWipes wants to keep the environment in the package as sterile as possible. Smart. These bad boys have a long shelf life if unopened (15 months) but once you open them, they must be used within a month. I’ve never seen that note on any other brand, so it makes me feel like WaterWipes are fresher and better for Kai’s skin.
Full disclosure: I now keep a pack in the car for me, as well as the stash in the house for Kaya’s diaper changes and wiping down Ro when needed.
Have you used WaterWipes before? I only discovered them looking all the way up at the top shelf in Target because I couldn’t find my normal brand. So glad I did. Now you can too:
