- 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.

- 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
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."
