Huggies Baby Wipes – My Craft Recommendation of the Week!

Huggies  ... a crafters best friend in the craft room

Huggies
… a crafters best friend in the craft room

There’s one product that, as a crafter, I’ve never  ever been without in my craft room and that product is Huggies Baby Wipes They’re the most incredible thing for clean up jobs  –   for work tops, blending mats, glass cutting mats and they’re brilliant for cleaning your hands after you’ve been playing in your inks and blending.

They work with paint, stamp pad inks,  spills, and all the general madness which goes on in craft rooms.  They’re  FANDABBYDOZY  at cleaning up glitter – and we all know how that can spread itself around the place.  The glitter sticks to the Huggies wipe and you can just collect it all up and straight into the bin!

Price wise, here in the UK, I normally find them for around £1.  I know that Superdrug normally stock them for 99p;  and I’ve bought them from Tesco’s when they’re on offer – and stock up with them when they’re on a buy one get one free. Asda, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons,  Boots and Waitrose either stock them for a pound or you can buy 2 for £2 – (buying just one pack makes them more than a pound, but buy two at the same time and you get the offer).

Huggies actually make six different wipes, but I only ever use Huggies Pure which are in a soft biscuit coloured pack,  (see a pack at the top of this post) or Huggies Natural Care – which are in the familiar green pack.

Not just for babies bottoms!

For Stampersthose who use rubber stamps to craft – Huggies are one of the best wipes to use as they contain no alcohol.  Alcohol is a stamps worst enemy as it slowly breaks down the rubber of the stamp and you then end up with a print which is exceptionally poor, and since stamps are so expensive they’re worth taking care of.

Now I know that there are special wipes which are apparently made just for crafters.  There are, I’m led to believe, even wipes that are made for crafters which can be used, washed and re-used.  But …  why would you want to do that?  If that’s what you want to do, then why not buy old towels from a charity shop, cut them into wipe sized squares and use those?  Surely the one thing us crafters don’t want to spend time doing is using the washing machine and sorting whites, mixed colours, woollens, darks and … crafting wipes!  (You really wouldn’t want to wash them with your lovely clothes!) And besides which … I’ve looked on the internet and these ‘special crafters’ wipes cost a fortune!

Nope … my recommendation of the week  year  CENTURY, is  Huggies Baby Wipes.

Oh .. and want to know something else great about them?  I’ve found that the Huggies Pure wipes (the ones in the biscuit coloured pack) – are fantastic for removing your cosmetics at the end of the day, and boy do they leave your face soft!  Double whammy!  Yay.

Happy Crafting all!

    • {nods in agreement} I absolutely wouldn’t be without them, so much so that if I ran out and couldn’t get them near to me, I’d drive miles just to get them. They’re brilliant.

      On another subject … I LOVE your Townie blog Sarah! Your photographs are like little treasures. The Robin, your dog, the peonies, Dunfermline Town Clock, some of your handmade cards (loved the Anniversary card) – just to name a few – OH and the photographs which accompany your recipes are enough to set the old tummy growling. But .. I was trying to find this ‘other blog’ which you mentioned on your Townie blog … and couldn’t find it. BUT … the penny dropped and I realised that it’s The Handmade Card Blog! DOH! LOL. Two totally fabulous blogs. You clever thing. I’m following them both. ~ Cobs. x

  1. Great recommendations. I’m a big fan of Huggies wipes, too. I used to buy expensive makeup remover but found that the Huggies do a great job without leaving an oily residue. I buy the unscented ones. I never thought about using them for craft cleanup – thanks for the idea!
