Junior has got you beat in the booger wars. Every time you attempt to attack the crusty mess on his face, he’s gone like the wind. See, he doesn’t like how it feels when you rub his tender nose with harsh-smelling wipes or a dry tissue and so he masterfully squirms out of your best mommy head lock.

70Now, there’s a natural, soothing way to victory: Boogie Wipes are the creation of two Northwest mothers –Julie Pickens and Mindee Doney — who knew the path to cleaner faces was a matter of making a product that attracts, rather than repels, kids.

Like most mompreneurs, their idea came from personal experience. Doney was struggling to treat her daughter’s bad cold by using saline drops in her baby’s nose. When the baby wouldn’t stop screaming, she soaked a wipe in the solution. She was amazed at how it worked and how the baby calmed down. Boogies Wipes are made with natural saline to dissolve mucus. They’re alcohol-free and hypoallergenic, and contain Vitamin E, aloe, chamomile. Best of all, they come in scents like yummy grape juice or soothing menthol and they’re so soft, kids don’t mind if you use them over and over again.

Available at retailers like Fred Meyer, Rite-Aid and Babies R’ Us, Boogie Wipes come in an easy-to-use dispenser pack of 30 for $3.99, which easily fits into a diaper bag. Boogie Wipes
