You Can Magically Revive Dry Baby Wipes

The big idea: Dry wipes can be revived!

Here’s a tip that may be obvious–but it wasn’t to me.

I used to get frustrated when someone left the babywipes open and the wipes all dried out. I’d walk the package over to the trash, shaking my head sadly at the waste of money and trees. Then one day, a friend changed my life.




“You know you don’t have to throw them out, right? You can just revive them by running water into the package.” D’oh!

So I’m passing this along, just in case it’s news to you. Now you never need to throw baby wipes out again!

Unless they’re dirty.
