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.

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!

    My favorite use is to use it to clean their nostrils! Some horse don't like it, but mine always seem to.

    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.

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

    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.
