This post is sponsored by Huggies but all opinions and messes are my own. Huggies just makes the mess part easier to clean up.
Lately we’ve taken all kinds of trips with Bella – short and much longer. We are headed out next week to California for my grandma’s 90th birthday – just Bella and I. On these trips, I have become pretty packing savvy. I know what we need on hand, what we can pack away, and what Bella can help carry in her suitcase and backpack.
One thing we can’t ever have enough of in everything we pack and carry is wipes. I have wipes stored in the car doors, the console, the back seat pockets. I have wipes in the house, in my purse, the gym bags, her carry bags. Bella is messy – but only with food. Somehow she can spend all day in the backyard digging in the mud in a white shirt and beige pants and never get a spec of dirt on her, only to come in and slather herself in spaghetti sauce.
It’s a talent.
Because she tends to freak out (and yet still make messes) when she spills something on herself, especially in the car, wipes have become something we buy in bulk. However, the usual kind make her hands sting after a while, aren’t great for wiping the face, and can’t be used in case we have to make an emergency pull over potty stop in the middle of no where.
And we have.
Huggies has a new design called the Clutch ‘n’ Clean that I’m totally in love with. Not only can it stay put with it’s clasp on my arm in moments I need two free hands and wipes right.there. – but it also is refillable and has an easy snap to keep the wipes wet. I love how they can wipe face, hands, and arms with just one go. Usually we’ve got a backseat full of dirty little food covered wipes at the end of the day. With these, it’s just one per meal/snack.
Easy to open and refill, the Clutch ‘n’ Carry is my new best friend for allowing Bella to look at least a bit more clean before we get out of the car or off the plane.
Try them for your next road or plane trip – or just have a pack in the car for those moments that catch you off guard; i.e. “Mommy I promise not to squeeze the chocolate milk in the carton” – and yet they always do.
