Ideas for keeping your wipes handy

Use decorative containers to store your wipes
(Keep them in all of your rooms throughout your home)

If you decorate them carefully, no one will ever know that you have cleaning wipes so handy throughout your home

Keeping your wipes in decorative containers will benefit you in a couple of ways. First, you will not have to worry about storage issues and secondly, they will be easy to get to. This will encourage you to clean more often.

Examples of handiness

You may be watching television in your living room. At a commercial break, you realize that there is some hand prints on a light switch nearby. Go to your handy container and grab a wipe. Presto!!! The hand prints are gone and you didn’t even need to drag out all of the supplies.

You are in the restroom and realize that the mirrors are dirty. Grab your glass wipes that are handy. Wallah!!! Your housework just got easier.

Homemade baby wipes are great to have around the house also. It is quick and easy to grab some for the dirty little hands and faces. You won’t mind sharing them with the rest of the family because they are so cost effective. Have fun making all kinds of different scents too.

Cost Effectiveness

Once you realize how many wipes you can make out of one roll of paper towels, you will be amazed at how much money you will be saving. These wipes will also not go to waste. Only make as many as you need at a time. This way you will ensure that they do not dry out like some of the products on the market.
