Just my thought is try a little baby lotion in it too and keep the container in a zip lock bag to help keep the moisture in. Read the ingrediants on the package and that may give you an idea of what you can add. Or try and google dried out baby wipes. HOpe this helps

Can you rehydrate unused baby wipes that dried out?

Many readers tell me they add a few drops of tap water or baby oil to the bottom of the plastic container, seal it, and turn it upside down. If you keep the lid tightly closed and store the box away from heat sources, the wipes should last longer. Baby wipes have many uses: They're great for quickly cleaning phones, sticky purse linings, and dirty hands. You can also use them for spiffing up faucets and sinks (but they're not safe for marble or granite).

I think the only part that you're looking for here is the first part... but here are some ideas if they completely dry out as well.

Soak the dried out baby wipes in a small amount of water and reseal in the package. Then you can use these freshly moistened wipes for your normal baby uses.

Step 2Dampen a dry baby wipe with water or a combination of water and bathroom cleanser. Then, wipe your bathroom countertops, tub and toilet basin to clean. Dispose properly after using them to clean.

Step 3Use dry baby wipes or barely dampened ones to scrub down your shower stall. Spray the stall first with bathroom cleanser, let it set for a few minutes and then wipe the entire stall down for a shine.

Step 4Dust your furniture using a dry baby wipe. Apply a little dusting spray to use the baby wipe to dust wood furniture or use a little window cleanser to wipe down glass windows or table tops.

Step 5Make your chrome shine by using a dry baby wipe with the appropriate cleanser for your chrome to remove any soap scum and water stains. Use a second dry baby wipe to buff to a shine.

Step 6Keep dry baby wipes in a room with a patient or sick family member. The dry baby wipes are perfect for quick wipe ups that are small in size. The dry baby wipes are stronger than a tissue and do not shred apart like a tissue.

Step 7Store some dry baby wipes in your auto glove box for a variety of uses. They can take the place of napkins for finger clean ups, use them to clean your sun glasses while you're in the car and even to dampen slightly to use to wipe off your auto dash and interior.

I keep mine stored in a container or zip baggie. Adding a little water will help and so will the lotion.

"not safe on marble OR granite," and they're wiping down the part where the sun don't shine? YIKES!

Here's a thought.... with todays tough times, maybe a good old fashion washcloth. Then you can rinse it out and use it over. Over the course of a baby being in diapers it will save you over $500.00! Not a bad start on a college fund.

It's important not to use too much water or they may mildew. I've had that happen when I rewetted wet ones that dried out. Shouldn't throw away if they can be saved, irregardless of the money issue.
