I firmly believe that getting dirty from playing outside is part of a happy childhood. Exploring nature up close and personal, experiencing the world on a tactile level, and eating messy, drippy foods outdoors are all part of the glorious wonder of being a child.

I am an Army wife and a mother of two fearless boys. This means that they love to jump headfirst into anything they can, and as a result, are almost always covered in who knows what. I encourage their fun, and can easily help clean up their act when it’s done thanks to some tricks up my sleeve.

I learned a long time ago to always be prepared (and not because the military advocates that — motherhood taught me that lesson). The fact of the matter is that soap and water aren’t always readily available or convenient when you need it, so to get those sticky, grimy hands clean, I arm myself with Wet Ones ® Hand Wipes.

These little beauties are good all year round, but I find that we really need them over the summer. Here are 20 reasons I will be using them this season to wipe those little guys clean:

  1. After hitting the playground

  2. Before eating a picnic lunch

  3. Cleaning off tree sap

  4. Frogs, bugs and worms…need I say more?

  5. Gardening with daddy

  6. Spilling bubble solution

  7. Digging in the dirt

  8. Making mud pies

  9. Snot/boogers…fact of parenthood.

  10. Drawing with sidewalk chalk

  11. Painting with finger paints

  12. Found objects like old chewing gum and cigarette butts

  13. Watermelon

  14. Popsicles

  15. Ice cream

  16. Lollipops

  17. BBQ sauce and hot dogs with condiments exploding out the other end

  18. Sticky drinks like lemonade, juice and punch

  19. While on a road trip, for whenever we have to hit a rest stop (or the side of the road) and there is no soap and water

  20. More importantly, they can be used to clean my hands after I help my little guys clean theirs.
