A Baby Wipe Will Make Your Home Office So Much Cleaner

If you're looking for a fast and easy way to keep your office space clean, it might be time to break out the baby wipes. Whether you have a dirty keyboard, leather furniture that could use a quick polishing, or houseplants with dusty leaves, baby wipes can help make your office look sparkling without the effort of deep cleaning it.

To clean your keyboard, disconnect it and then shake out any dirt or crumbs that may have gotten stuck between the keys. Once any loose debris is gone, you'll be able to gently rub your keyboard with a baby wipe, picking up all the dust and dirt left behind. If you have leather chairs or couches in your office, baby wipes also work as a great temporary polish, and they can also shine the leaves of your houseplants. It should be noted that while baby wipes work well for a quick clean, they aren't capable of disinfecting surfaces.

Cleaning your office with baby wipes

If you're in a hurry to get your home office cleaned, dusting with a baby wipe is a game changer. Baby wipes can be used on a variety of surfaces, including bookshelves, coffee tables, desks, and chairs. Since the wipes are damp, the dust will stick to them rather than end up in the air, and they work well for cleaning up sticky spills, too. If you use dry-erase boards to jot down ideas while you're working, cleaning them with baby wipes will help keep them nice and white.

Surprisingly, baby wipes are safe to use on computer screens if you've misplaced your microfiber cloth, and they can be used on laptops, phones, and computer mice to get rid of smudges or fingerprints. While cleaning your electronics, make sure not to get any openings, like charging ports or speakers, wet from the wipes; instead, focus your efforts primarily on screens, keyboards, and the outside components.

More unconventional ways to use baby wipes

If you have chalkboards in your home office rather than dry erase, baby wipes are wonderful for cleaning any chalk that's leftover after erasing, and they're effective for cleaning chalkboard paint as well. Even if your wall isn't functioning as a chalkboard, baby wipes can help remove any smudges, pencil marks, or crayon without harming the paint. For those who have to prepare lots of letters to be mailed, baby wipes can save you from having to lick every envelope. Simply rub the baby wipe along the adhesive and it'll moisten it enough for you to seal it.

These gentle wipes are also good for removing light stains from most fabric, including carpets, clothes, and upholstered furniture. Try dabbing at the stain and the wipe should begin to pick it up. If it doesn't get the mark completely out, it should at least help prevent the stain from setting into the fabric. All told, whether your home office needs to be dusted, your furniture polished, or you need to quickly pick up a stain, baby wipes will help you keep your space clean so you can focus on work.
