Even if you don’t have anyone from the ankle biter set running around the house, it behooves every fashionista to have a package of baby wipes at the ready.
Why, you ask?
It’s the easiest way to remove accidental deodorant stains from clothing. Simply lay out the shirt on a flat surface and gently rub the stain with the baby wipe until it disappears.
It’s that simple.
If the fabric is delicate, be sure to rub gently in one direction only — not circles — so you don’t ruin the fibers. And, always test the baby wipe first on a hidden part of the garment to make sure it won’t damage the fabric. (You probably wouldn’t want to try this on your favorite silk blouse, for example.)
I’ve also had success using baby wipes on a variety of other clothing stains — including makeup. It’s a great, all-around “on the go” stain remover.
In fact, if you do a Google search, you’ll see there are a variety of uses for baby wipes. One of the other “beauty related” tips I stumbled across came straight from Brad Pitt himself.
Yep. That guy.
Apparently, on the set of his film Inglorious Bastards, Mr. Pitt shared a hygiene tip with costar Eli Roth.
Here’s how Eli explained it to People Magazine:
” ‘After a scene, Brad had to get next to me for a close-up shot, and he said, ‘[Wow] you’re ripe,’ recalls Roth, 37. “I said, ‘I didn’t have time to shower.’ He said, ‘Baby wipes, man, baby wipes.’
When it came to Pitt’s pits, Roth said the leading man explained, ‘I got six kids. All you’ve got to do is just take them, a couple quick wipes under the pits.’ Pitt further said, ‘Man, I’m getting [peed] on all day. I don’t have time to take a shower.’ ”
Now, I haven’t personally used baby wipes for that purpose. But I’ll take Brad’s word for it.
Heck, if you’re in a pinch, it might just be worth a try.
