Is there anything stickier than a person under the age of three years? Luckily, no such creatures are more adorable than these littlest of humans; although the sticky bits we could do without.
Most parents – regardless of the stage of their parenting journey – could not name one single item that made their jobs easier and tidier than the wonderful wipes.
There are the classic situations: clean-up of any manner of bodily fluids; a quick “top to tail” wipes bath in a restaurant high chair; toddler ice-cream face swiping with one hand while the other feeds the new sibling, etc. The list is endless, and every mom or dad can recount to you their best wipes story.
You could try to be Creative and Make your Own Wipes!
As a parent, you would want your kids to have safe and pure options; especially when it comes to keeping them clean. They’re so new and soft and the thought of cleaning them with products boasting ingredient lists you need a Masters in biochemical engineering to decipher was unappealing at best.
And so many set about making their own wipes.
Few spent hours researching recipes and ingredients, tips, and tricks for the best homemade wipes. Basically all you wanted was a natural, easy wipe that wouldn’t have me calling poison control if one ended up in the mouth of your toddler or your dog. Also one that didn’t sting or leave a sickly scent. And obviously one that WORKED.
All you need is a special water, complex essences, expensive herbs, some kind of oil from a bird (which I was afraid to ask how it was extracted), a preservative, eye of newt, tongue of bat.
Honestly, the list is exhaustive and by the time you would roughly have over $100 as a hole in your pocket; also your kitchen would have looked like it had played host to a frat party.
But if you have actually tried, then you would have realized that this idea was completely bonkers!
Agh! But there had to be a simpler way to clean my little one head to foot with a product that you could take with you; and still be able to afford it.
So here is the solution..
WaterWipes – Easy Wipes!
And there is: WaterWipes. It was right there, on the shelf in the baby aisle at Walmart. (And I did a quick search after my initial purchase and it’s available at many popular online retailers in Canada, so if you’re a parent like me who had a newborn who made things like “going outside” or “getting in a car” nearly impossible, you can still get these easily.)
WaterWipes were developed by a Dad, not a chemical company, and they contain – get this! – simply *2 ingredients.* WaterWipes contain only water (99.9%) and a drop of fruit extract that acts as a skin conditioner. They are soft, moist, and they WORK! Finally, a simple, pure wipe I can feel good about using for babies, toddlers, or myself! They’re perfect for even the most delicate of delicate skins – including sensitive and premature babies, and they’ve been awarded the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance for sensitive newborn skin, so you know WaterWipes will not leave any residue behind. WaterWipes are the world’s purest baby wipes and they don’t cost a rent payment to use.
We’re all doing the best we can, and parents know we truly are all in this together. The fact that a Dad created WaterWipes for his baby – and now our babies too – is, simply and purely, a wonderful thing for our babies – and us!
