There's not much that hasn't been cleaned with a wet wipe at some point.

get a wet j cloth and wipe, you will be surprised

YES. Just recently discovered how much hair can be removed with a baby wipe. My Henry Hoover jusy isn't up to the job. I tried using a rubber squire thing but that was rubbish. A damp flannel is good for hair removal too.

Its GROSS isnt it?

I'm assuming you mean a carpet on the floor and it's not an euphamism for something else?

I wet wipe the rugs as they get full of dust and fluff that the Hoover cant shift.

Oh no! 3 weeks till dc3 due and trying not to completely give into nesting... but this is feeling like the best idea ever! I might have to stop trying to hold it back, ignore the children and get the wet wipes out.

Yep. DS threw up all over my brand new hall and landing carpet. hmm The wet wipes worked wonders before the Hoover other vacuum cleaner brands available and a bit of febreeze other brands of fabric freshener available

yes as did my mother before me; I don't use a wipe though- a damp floor cloth- and the amount of fluff and hair etc it brings off is staggering even with my brand new Miele vacuum

Also try using the side of your hand that has a rubber glove on!!
Love a baby wipe for most things!

OhPuddleducks Mon 22-Jun-15 14:59:08

My mil did it once (in my house). I thought wtf? Does it actually do something? I just assumed she was being weird.

GobblersKnob Mon 22-Jun-15 14:59:46

SurlyCue Mon 22-Jun-15 15:01:19

SqueezyCheeseWeasel Mon 22-Jun-15 15:05:09

My stair carpet is being replaced in a few months so I'll just keep on living in joyful ignorance of the filth, ta.
