Wipe it, and Wipe it Good!
I/we use them for everything. I still have a two year old in nappies so that's the first and foremost reason for their existence.
But they are also excellent cleaning wipes, I use them on the floor, the couch, the carpet, clothes, cuts, windows, toilet....you name it, I use it.
My five year old son has also discovered they're so much nicer on your nose than tissues. And when you've got a cold, they make a big difference!!
And of course we use them to wipe faces, hands, feet, whatever when we're out at the park, at someone's house, at a coffee shop, a food court, at Maccas or at home. There are often three packs on a picnic table for playgroup at the playground.
We have one pack in the car, one in my handbag, one in the nappy bag, one in my two year old's bedroom and one in the kitchen!
But alas, my Hubba Hubba from Hoob Land (sorry I watch way too much children's television) has had a little dummy spit about how many wipes we go through. He is the Aldi shopper (I'm the Woolies/Coles shopper) and used his cranky voice saying he buys two packets every two or three days.
Well, of course he wouldn't be a man if he didn't exaggerate, would he?
Where do men learn to count and tell the time anyhow? It's always sooooooo far off!
So, it seems I'm back to the old fashioned cloth rags, the ones I have to wash and reuse rather than just tossing those filthy germs in the bin.
Yes, yes I know...I was being very un-green.
If you want to hit me with a big environmentally friendly stick, go ahead, I can take it.
No, on second thought, I can't.
I'm still a little fragile from yesterday's news.
Rephrase...if you have something nasty to say please refrain, just for today.
'Cause you say it best, when you say nothing at all.
