Life is messy. Kids are super messy. Even though my babies have moved to the triple-digit month counts – you know, she’s 111 months old – I am still floored by the disasters they create when eating food, blowing their noses, and just living life in general. If you think once your wee one can walk, run, or say, even drive, that your messy days are past, you’re mistaken!
Starting in 2000, I put a container of wet wipes in every vehicle we owned. And today – 2017 – I continue to keep wipes around. From snotty noses to bloody knees, messy table tops to germ-covered shopping cart handles, wipes have become a staple in my parenting arsenal. I use them for myself as frequently as the kids! Now that I have great-nephews and a great-niece I’m passing on my love of the wet wipe to their parents. Whereas before, any wipe would do, I have now upped the game and intent to spread my newfound knowledge far and wide. The little ones in our family will learn from the wisdom of their Aunt EJ and Boogie Wipes will clean the way for them!
Lately, I’ve been paying attention more closely to the pollutants and chemicals in my environment. And that includes all things from my laundry detergent, facial cleanser, dishwasher soap, and the wipes in my car. I don’t have to worry about my Boogie Wipes. They are made with natural saline that dissolves mucus. They are alcohol, paraben and phthalate free. In addition to being free of harsh additives, Boogie Wipes moisturize little (and BIG!) noses with vitamin E, aloe, and chamomile.
I don’t keep Boogie Wipes only in my car. I have them in my backpack, my snowboard kit bag, my jacket pocket (I make myself a carry along bag of wipes), and I’ve started stashing them in mine and my daughter’s sports bags. There are days when I’m so overscheduled with events I don’t have time for a full shower. Boogie Wipes come in handy when I’m in such a rush!
Many of my friends have little ones. I always have a container of wipes on my counter to catch the messes and the noses that come with their children. I would rather clean their sweet faces with a Boogie Wipe then have one (or both!) of my 70-pound fur babies tackle their child to lick whatever may be there to lick!
Winter is coming to my part of the country and my family spends copious amounts of time outside snowboarding. At the end of our ride, we hop into our truck and head home. After being in cold air for hours, the warmth of the car creates the perfect environment for runny noses and the nose faucets open! The cold dry winter air can irritate the delicate skin around our noses, therefore, we tend to use wipes to reduce any possible soreness due to runny noses. Because nothing stops us from spending time on the slopes, anything I can do to reduce any potential runny nose issues is KEY to my world! No sore noses here!
Check out Boogie Wipes! They are available at large retailers (Walmart, Loblaws, Shopper’s Drug Mart) and online!
