WFMW



My Works-for-Me Wednesday is a very simple one. Very simple.

It's annoying to me that the wipes that are the most moist (try saying that one three times fast) are at the bottom of the box. So I make sure that the container lid is shut tightly and then I store it upside down. Keeps the wipe I'm about to use saturated with cleaner. I do this with all kind of wipes, not just the diaper-changing variety. It also works with the disinfectant wipes and the kind for "personal" cleanliness.

Remember to shut the lid to the container tightly.

Simple? Yup. But it works for me!

That's funny, I was just thinking this last night. Except I never thought to store it upside down, I always just give mine a good shake before I take one out. I going now to turn all my wipes upside down.

I wish I could remember to do this. So frugal, so simple, so... right! Great tip Mine's on Frugal Ice Packs - Instant Bandaid Magic!

I usually buy refills (baby wipes, kid bathroom wipes) and I store these upside down then take a reasonable amount out to refill the container. (Thus, the container doesn't need to be stored upside down and my son can only play with a limited amount instead of a full container.) :)

I will do this. Also, I just heard you should do the same thing with cottage cheese. Keeps it fresher longer. How about that!
