The Bottom Line

Boogie Wipes are a great addition to your winter survival kit if your family is prone to getting colds. If you've got allergy-sufferers, you may also love Boogie Wipes in the summer. These saline-infused wipes can be used to clean off your baby or toddler's nose, and work pretty well to remove the crusty mess that often results when little ones get runny noses. You still may need regular tissues for some situations, but using Boogie Wipes when you can should mean that your little one's nose is less irritated, and you spend less time struggling to wipe a wiggly child's nose.

Pros

  • No alcohol so these wipes won't dry or sting skin.
  • Added saline helps remove dried "boogies" around baby's nose.
  • Can be used for other baby or toddler cleanup in a pinch, as well.
  • Available in 30-count packs or individually wrapped - both are convenient.

Cons

  • Scent may be a little strong for some.
  • The wipes aren't really absorbent, so for really runny noses, you may also need a tissue.

Description

  • Saline nose wipes with chamomile, vitamin E and aloe.
  • Available in fresh scent, grape scent and unscented.
  • 30-count pack costs about $4. 10 individually wrapped wipes cost about $3. A 90-count tub is also available for about $13.

Guide Review - Boogie Wipes Review

When your baby or toddler has a runny nose, you get to suffer almost as much as your little one every time you try to wipe that tiny nose. The usual result is a baby nose with at least a little bit of dried-up mess around it. No matter what you call it, it's still gross! Boogie Wipes are made to address that mess. These saline-infused wipes are to be used like a tissue, but the saline helps loosen the dried up stuff so your baby's nose can be clean again.

Unlike baby wipes or other wet wipes, Boogie Wipes don't have any alcohol in them, so there won't be any stinging or drying effect when you use these on delicate skin. Boogie Wipes also have chamomile, vitamin E and aloe in them, so there's a bit of moisturizing help in there, too.

These wipes are not very thick. They're about like a regular tissue in thickness, so it's easy to fold or scrunch them into whatever shape you require to wipe tiny noses. They're wet enough to work but not drippy. Boogie Wipes come in grape scent and fresh scent. One mom who tried them out said "the scent isn't unpleasant, but it is pretty strong." I think the grape scent is kind of gross, but every kid I've asked loves it. I'm completely willing to put up with it if it means I don't have to chase a child to wipe their nose!

Boogie Wipes don't absorb anything. If you're just removing dried up messes or wiping stuffy noses, that's OK. If your child has a major runny nose, you may need regular tissues, as well. Boogie Wipes are definitely less irritating than regular tissues, though, so it's worth switching them in when you can.

I also like that Boogie Wipes are pretty inexpensive, and they could be used to wipe almost any mess in a pinch. A mom who tried them noted "they don't seem to dry up if you leave one out for a while before using it, which is odd, but it works."

THANKS BOOGIE WIPES!! : ), Member blessedmomoftwo

We just battled the first “real” cold of the season, and I am SOOOO thankful to Boogie Wipes! My daughter normally gets terribly sore from all the nose wiping we have to do, and ends up looking like Rudolph. Not this time around! She voluntarily blew her nose, kept a pack under her pillow at night, and didn’t complain ONCE about having to wipe her nose…and the best part for me, her nose didn’t get (not even a little) sore or red! BOOGIE ON!
