Spit like mama used to make
I'm not shilling for products, but my kids would really like it if I carried a bottle of this Momspit around. I’m guilty of the old cleanup tool of licking my finger and wiping the schmutz off their dirty faces just before going in the door at preschool or Grandma’s house. This totally grosses them out, and I get that, but what else are you gonna do? My boys have the unique ability to attract dirt, even on freshly washed faces that have done nothing but travel in the back of a car for 10 minutes. This foamy stuff supposedly works like hand sanitizer, except there’s no alcohol to irritate sensitive faces and it comes in nice smells like Lemon White Tea. I can’t vouch for it, but it’s on my short list of diaper bag and minivan staples for new and veteran moms.
