Scoff if you will, but even if you don’t have a baby, there are myriad reasons to have wipes on hand when you’re at home or out and about. If you’ve never stopped to consider it, take a moment now to read through these 10 reasons to stash an extra full-size pack in a kitchen drawer and carry the adaptable travel packs in your purse, carry-on bag, car…


1. Remove makeup before working out. Use wipes to quickly remove makeup, moisturizer, or sunscreen before you break a sweat.

2. Wash hands. Maybe you already carry hand sanitizer for keeping bugs at bay on-the-go, but did you know you have to remove dirt from your skin first or the hand sanitizer won’t work? Wipe first, rub second.

3. Clean dirty public surfaces. The world’s a messy place. Use wipes to clean dirt off of airline trays, dusty outdoor seating, and sandy playground toys.

4. Shine your shoes. Give your shoes a quick swipe with a wipe to remove scuff marks, mud, and muck.

5. Cool down on hot days. Dampening your forehead, neck, and wrists lowers your core body temperature. So, if you’re feeling steamy, grab a wipe and chill out.

6. Clean keyboards, wipe boards, and touch screens. Did you know public keyboards and touch screens (think libraries and ATMs) have been found to have more bacteria on them then public toilets? And don’t forget your personal computer, cell phone, and home phone! Give them a little wipe down before using (computers should be powered down) and then wash or sanitize your hands afterwards.

7. Erase evidence of spills and stains from clothing. Maybe your soup splattered or your deodorant left an embarrassing white mark on your shirt — have no fear, the wipe is here. Dab away and lather up and dab again if need be. (Wipes hold up to this job far better than tissues or paper towels.)

8. Wipe off wounds. Did someone skin their knee at the park? Give cuts and scrapes a gentle cleanse with a wipe before applying any necessary topical treatments.

9. Prep puppy paws before getting in the car. Protect your car’s upholstery by wiping dirty dog paws before he hops in.

10. Dust your dashboardSpeaking of cars, grab a wipe to quickly clean the dust and grime that accumulates on your dashboard, steering wheel, and other hard surfaces.

See how wipes can help you be prepared for life’s unexpected messes? And Honest wipes are extra thick and durable, built to stand-up to the toughest jobs.

    Ithe would be nice to have flushable wipes for potty training. To go wit ur pull ups! Also think it would be convenient for maybe a cute reusable wipe box so I can refill it wit the pj’s of wipes thinks it helps keep them tightly shut nd moist! Plus be cute. I always used my pampers wipe box over nd over til I was introduced to honest nd learned more on chemicals nd toxins!

    I love it. Its so much better than parasol.

  • In addition to being soft and gentle on your baby’s skin,Baby Wipes also provide an extra thickness. The generous, absorbent layer in our wipes makes it easier and faster for you to remove more of the dirt that can cause irritation. This leaves your baby’s skin cleaner and healthier, while using fewer wipes!

    You probably never bought baby wipes until you had children – now you can’t possibly imagine life without them. It doesn’t take long to appreciate just how many other uses wipes have, as Zoe Meunier discovered when she came to compile this list …
