Sometimes moms have good ideas.
Whenever we went out as a family on a picnic, my mom would bring a wet washcloth in a baggie. This was back before the days of Wet Ones and hand sanitizers and the wet washcloth tucked into a plastic baggie (or bread bag) ensured that our hands and faces would remain clean.
I find myself using my mom’s practice more and more often. Hand sanitizers and Wet Ones leave a funny smelling residue on my hands that make my food seem less appetizing and make me wonder what chemicals I am putting on my skin. Additionally, I almost always have a washcloth and plastic bag at home that can be pressed in to service – no additional purchases required.
What ideas do you now use that you learnt from your mom?
