17 uses for a baby wipe at a festival

At the end of July we were at Lulworth Castle at the wonderful Camp Bestival. It was a great weekend weather wise, not too hot all of the time but dry at least. Although we got messy, it wasn’t the knee deep in mud kind of messy you saw at Glastonbury this year.

We went armed with tons of baby wipes and we were so glad we did.

  • General body wiping when you can’t get to the showers
  • Facial cleansing and removing make up, face paint and glitter


  • Regular nappy changes
  • Wrapping around ice creams to prevent dripping
  • Cleaning up all manor of spillages
  • Wiping sun cream off hands
