    We use these all the time for the obvious (feels clean and fresh).
    We buy the Tesco cheapies and put the used ones in a nappie bag (100 for coppers)
    Now apart from the obvious we use them for a wipe round the bits n pieces and under arm to freshen up sometimes.
    They are also great for cleaning:- glasses, binoculars, tele screens, camera lenses and laptop screens then just a dry off with a paper towel.
    I do like multipurpose things in the Motorhome. :thumb:

    And those damned flies that stick on the front :cry:
    Moisten them and then clean off with a wet wipe.

    Yes, they are great for all those personal little things, but for the sake of a harmonious Motor Home NEVER PUT THEM DOWN THE CASSETE.

    I seen one guy turn into a volcano trying to get them out....

    When I ran a Karaoke we used them for cleaning CDs.
    Wipe and dry across, not around the disc.
    Removes finger smudges, etc. nicely.

    We go through loads of wipes on our 2 yrs old botty, we also use them for wiping sticky hands and for wiping the girls feet before they climb into bed (nightmare flip flops).

    On our recent trip to France though we got onto our last pack of wipes as well as nappies so off we went to the supermarket. :cry:

    DO NOT run out in France 20 euro for 4 packs!!!! That would have been like wiping his botty in gold leaf :Rofl1: Needless to say I made them last and the girls used wet kitchen roll for their feet. I couldn't believe it, at home I don't get the cheapest I use Johnsons which are £4 for 4 packs, so not bad.

    The nappies I had no choice but got own brand 20 nappies for 10 euro! I usually pay £20 for 164 nappies for Pampers. :Eeek:

    Wipe up spit-up from the leather couches
    As a bullfighter’s cape when your rowdy toddler wants to be the bull
