This list of 10 Tips to keep Kid’s Faces and other Messy Places Clean is brought to you in collaboration with Huggies® to help bring you helpful tips for cutting down on messes. All opinions expressed here are my own. #TripleClean #CleanKids #ParentingTips
Kids like to get into things. Tactile learning is very important to their development and being able to make messes (and learn how to clean them up) is an important part of growing up.
Messy hands can be caused by all sorts of things: a trip on a nature walk to hold a snakeskin,
a visit to the petting zoo to pet goats,
or just every day stuff, like eating food.
As a boy mom with two precious, inquisitive, and sometimes messy boys to care for, I’m sharing my parenting tips for keeping kid’s faces and other messy places clean.
10 Tips to keep Kid’s Faces and other Messy Places Clean
The strategy that’s worked best for our family to keep messes at bay is to be prepared. I try to always have supplies on hand for cleaning messes and Huggies® Wipes with Triple Clean Layers are definitely a family favorite when it comes to keeping hands and other messy places clean. Because Kids Outgrow Diapers, Not Messes*; staying on top of the messes can be a real challenge at times. Did you know there are 101 Ways to Use Huggies® Wipes with #TripleClean technology? Here are some of the ways I keep our family’s faces and other messy places clean.
Tip #1: Keep supplies in the car. You can store things in a utility bag or center console. My personal favorite is the glove box. I always keep a few extras and Huggies® Wipes One & Done® in the Flip Top bag on hand in case an emergency arises. Huggies® Wipes are the only wipes with TripleClean™ layers — a new technology for gentle and effective cleaning.
Tip #2 : Keep cleaning supplies on hand in the stroller. You can make a bag with stroller supplies or just toss things into the stroller as needed. My kids and I are out and about all the time. Keeping wipes in the stroller makes it possible for me to let my three-year-old eat a banana without worry. I know I can get his hands and face clean. As you can see here, he is very excited about getting a banana.
Tip #3 : Keep extra wipes in your gym bag. Great for wiping down gym equipment or cleaning your hands after you exercise. Huggies® Wipes One & Done® in a Flip Top bag in your gym bag are not only helpful for a mom who works out, they come in handy with kids too.

Tip #4 : Take wipes to the pool or outdoors. Especially in the warmer months, the boys and I try to make it outdoors as much as possible. This often means we have to stop for a snack. Even my three-year-old will ask me to “clean his hands” and I’m just glad I have wipes with me to get him all clean. Watch this super cute 30 second Huggies® video to find out why Huggies® Wipes are perfect for hands, faces, bottoms and paws.
Tip #5 : Keep kids clean at the park. One of the things I’ve learned in the last five years, is that any place kids go to play is also a place where hands get dirty. I like to keep supplies to keep my boy’s hands clean even when we’re out playing on monkey bars, going down slides, or swinging on swing sets. Want to keep the play but not the dirty? Here’s one 15 second tip for using Huggies® wipes you may not have thought of.
Tip #6 : Clean sandy toes and fingers. We love to play in the sand but one of the challenges is keeping my three-year-old happy. Sometimes he gets bothered by the sand. I can usually dust off big clumps of sand with a towel, but cleaning up the small bits of sand on his hands and toes is best accomplished with wipes.
Tip #7 : Keeping hands clean during craft time. I love that my three-year-old already knows how to clean his own hands! Keeping wipes within reach and easily available cuts down on messes during craft time.
Tip #8 : Cut down on kitchen messes. One of my husband’s favorite dishes is bacon wrapped BBQ shrimp. By having Huggies® Wipes One & Done® in a Flip Top bag readily available, I can move from coating the shrimp to wrapping and plating for the oven without having to make multiple trips to the sink. It saves me time and makes cooking easier.
Tip #9 : Keep messy bottoms clean. My three-year-old is still going through potty-training. Potty training can be a messy experience. Thank goodness for wipes that help us keep messy places feeling clean! Often for us, toilet paper just doesn’t cut it.
Tip #10 : Easily keep the supper table clean. It’s not just my son’s face and hands that get messy! There are always tons of crumbs and pieces of food on the placemats and table. Having wipes handy and within reach ensures I have wet cloths that can wipe down placemats as soon as we finish eating supper.
