Wipe Adoration. Wipe.


I've said that word too many times, that now it's funny. Wipe.
With a 3-hour exception, yesterday I cleaned from 7 am- 11 pm. It was crazy, and I'm glad it's all done! Now I can bask in the glory of my very clean house and enjoy the fruits of my labors.
I just have to say how much I love Lysol Wipes. Or Clorox Wipes, or Kirkland brand for that matter. I just love cleaning wipes. I use them for everything on a daily basis. I use them to clean spots off of the carpet, to wipe up the high chair, get marks off of the floor, wipe out the fridge, wipe up the counters between deep cleanings...I could go on and on. In fact, sometimes I have to stop and remind myself that all wipes are not created equal. I find myself reaching for a Lysol wipe to change a diaper, or wipe off one of the cats. (I 'spot' clean the hairless cats in between baths. Yes, I bathe them regularly.) Luckily I have never used a Lysol wipe for one of these tasks as it is not generally recommended to wipe your baby's bum with bleach. But that's where the other great wipe comes in- Baby wipes! I use these for a multitude of things as well. I do use these to spot clean the cats, and various marks I find in the house. I also use them as a lazy way to clean my face when I'm too tired to wash it. (Oh, gimme a break-I know some of you are horrified. Deal with it.) They also double as great Wet Wipes after a sticky incident on the go. Basically I love wipes of all varieties. I think long after I have babies I will still buy Baby Wipes, and I think Lysol/Clorox wipes are some of the greatest cleaning innovations ever!
*What product do you love so much you would gladly do a free infomercial for?*

I'm a big fan of the Swiffer duster and Soft Scrub! Have fun in Charleston!

I loved your post, I too use wipes for many odd and end jobs. I think it's great someone else sees the use of wipes far beyond the "baby years." They are so easy and convenient for everything, I will probably never again be without wet wipes.

You make me laugh. Your house was impossibly clean this morning- I was tempted to take Mya outside and play so as not to disrupt anything. I use baby wipes for a lot of things but have not ever purchased the other kind. They just seem expensive to buy for what a dish-rag and 409 can do. But I might have to give it a try and see what happens.

I love my Calphalon cookware for oh so many reasons. And my chefs knife and KitchenAid mixer. I'd do a commercial anyday for any of them.

I love the Tide Pen! I never go anywhere without mine now; it makes any stain disappear within minutes. However, I feel that I was a little too excited about it up at Youth Conference last weekend, and some youth seemed to feel I was a bit of a dork, but how can you not be about something that will take blood off your Grandma's blouse, and strawberries off your white jacket. (I think that I could sell the Tide Pen way better than Kelly Ripa.)

The Biore wipes get me through the summer on the subways. So GREAT. I love all the Biore facial products. In fact, I just wrote an article about wipes. haha

First of all, even if I did clean my house from 7am - 11pm (which I never ever would do) the reveling in cleanness would be over all too soon. Like first thing the next morning. So that's pretty impressive...

I too love wipes. I buy the disinfecting ones at Costco and use them all the time. Baby wipes are also great for cleaning rubber stamps. I guess I'm not sure what I love enough to do a free informercial for. But I do know that you are the queen of free advertising -- you could do an informercial for any number of products.

First off, I have to offer my condolences to Alison for having to ride the subway in NYC in the summer. I rode it ever-so-briefly on a trip a few years ago in March and I still feel carsick--it was quite hot enough then. I can only imagine what it must be like in the summer! EW--and the germs! I'd carry wipes for sure.

As far as my favorite products, I would have to choose either Pam, Glad Press 'n' Seal wrap, or Puffs (no alliteration intended). I can't do without any of them!

Oh, I too LOVE wipes of every kind!! I use them on everyting and I go through them like crazy. I love that I can wipe down my bathroom sink every morning with just a wipe, wipe off the kitchen cabinets, little hand prints on the walls...my list could go on and on and on! What did people use before this? I especially love the kirkland 3 pack which included a set for kitchen use that has a tougher, bumpy cloth, perfect for cleaning kitchen messes (greasy stoves and syrup!)

I am on the "I love wipes" bandwagon too. I use them for everything, although thanks to Michelle, I now know that I can use them to clean off my stamps with.

I also love the Mr. Clean magic eraser, Glade fresh linen carpet stuff and swiffer, both wet and dry, I also use the dry ones to get cobwebs out the the corners, the lint from the AC and as my dust rag.

I love wipes of all kinds too! My favorite are the lemon smelling ones, but I embrace all of them. I also still buy baby wipes and keep the travel containers of them in the car, in my church bag, in my craft room, and all over the place (I took 2 packs to camp with me). They're handy whether a baby is involved or not.

I love wipes too. The Kirkland ones are my favorite. I love that they disinfect. I still carry baby wipes too. I am a free commercial for so many things...I will have to think about that more.
