10 Uses for Baby Wipes at the Barn

Considering the low cost and easy storage, baby wipes for horses are a must! I always keep a pack at the barn, in the car, and of course at home, and the uses are practically endless. My favorite brand are these Pampers Sensitive Wipes. I do prefer my DIY Homemade Grooming Wipes, but when I don't have the time, store bought is well worth the convenience.

Here are my Top 10 Uses for Baby Wipes at the Barn:

1. Bit Cleaner - Have a bit covered in dried, green goo from last week's trail ride? Give it a scrub with a baby wipe. Works much better than a dry cloth!

2. Tack Cleaner - Wipe away dust and dirt from tight spaces for a quick clean.

3. Freshen Up - If your trainer has implemented 'no stirrup week' and you're drenched in sweat, use a baby wipe to freshen up before venturing out in public.

4. Mane Tamer - Flatten a run away mane and get static under control.

5. Sock Cleaner - If your horse has white socks gone brown, a wipe can help clean them up.

6. Face Wipe - Anyone who has ridden in a dusty arena knows how impossibly dirty your face/nose/eyes can get. Baby wipes are also great for removing mascara that has gone astray.

7. Pet Paw Cleaner - My dogs seem to find every puddle at the barn. To help save my car upholstery I always keep them on hand.

8. Boot Shiner - Get a quick, polished look in a few seconds!

9. Coat Brightener - If your horse has a dull, dry coat a wipe can help lift dust and dandruff that a brush won't remove. Also try my recipe for Homemade Coat Conditioner with Coconut Oil.

10. Dock/Utter/Sheath Cleaner - I find keeping sponges clean and organized is nearly impossible, so these are an easy alternative with no risk of cross-contamination.

I'm sure there's many I've missed! What's your favorite use for baby wipes at the barn?

  4. I remove them from the package, let them dry out then submerge them in a tub of my fly spray, push out the excess and put in a ziplock bag, or back in the original package if possible. fly wipes for the face at a fraction of the cost.

  5. Wiping down dusty stall bars! They are easy to rinse off and re-use as well.

  6. I use wet ones (citrus scent work well) for ear cleaning. I squeeze out the excess moisture from the wipe first...helps with ticks too... they don't like it and crawl out of the ears.
