Happy Friday! It's been hot hot hot here still. We've had very little rain. We need days of rain!
I've been still having a great time using my coupons and racking up the savings while stocking up. I'm finally getting my Christmas gift stash tote back to full. My kids wouldn't know what to do if they didn't get their health and beauty package from me as a gift.
This month the Huggies baby wipes have been on a good sale with coupon. They were first .99 for the tub after sale and coupon, and now the refill packs are just .49 after sale and coupon. I do wish I had more coupons! I was able to get 5 of the tubs and 4 of the refill packs.
Today's share from the 99 Cent Solutions book includes uses for baby wipes. If you have other uses, please include them in the comments.
Uses for baby shampoo:
1. Baby your eyes. Soak a cotton ball in a mixture of 1 part baby shampoo and 10 parts water to wash the crud out of your eyelashes.
2. Wet your dry hair. Washing your hair with ordinary baby shampoo is less drying than the expensive shampoos and conditioners. Just think of the money you will save too.
3. Wash your eyelids, along with your hair. If you get sties more than occasionally, you may want to take preventive steps to stop them in their tracks. Wash your eyelids once a day with a solution of warm water and no-tears baby shampoo.
4. Remove eye make-up. You don't need to spend your money on expensive and less-than-sensitive eye makeup remover. Just dab a bit of baby shampoo on a damp cotton ball, wipe off your makeup and rinse your face. It's gentle on your face as well as your wallet.
Uses for baby wipes:
1. Wipe it off with a wipe. Do you have kids like ours that use their clothes as napkins? If so, blot the area with a paper towel then wash the rest away by rubbing gently with a baby wipe.
2. Stop it before it sets. Have a spill on your carpet? use a dampl baby wipe to blot up the fresh mess.
3. Wipes for windows. Grime and dead bugs build up on your cars windshield. Keep a package of baby wipes in your vehicle and use one every once in awhile to clean your windows. (Hey, another use other than sticky hands from candy!)
4. Dash away the dregs. Use those baby wipes to clean the sticky stuff off your dashboard too. Greasy handprints, spots of hand lotion, drips from juice boxes and anything else that's found it's way in to your car. If you really want your dashboard to shine, buff it with a little baby oil.
5. Take a swipe at your shoes. Use a baby wipe to quickly shine your shoes and brighten your day.
I enjoy using the baby wipes to remove make up. I even buy the unscented ones for this purpose.
