A California mom is going viral for the creative diaper bag hack she shared on Facebook.
On April 10, Elizabeth Rasco posted photos of a Huggies baby wipes box on the Facebook page for her face and mural painting business, The Painted Dragon.
In the caption, she wrote, “So I have to share this really cool diaper bag hack I accidentally discovered. I know its not face painting related, but I’m pretty sure I have a few moms following that could use this. I also dropped a roll of doggie bags in the bottom for dirty diaper and clothes.”
Indeed, the photos show Rasco used a thin elastic headband to attach a pack of wipes to the top of the dispenser box and thus free up space to put a backup baby outfit, plastic bags, diapers and more.
Rasco’s post received over 17,000 likes and was shared over 109,000 times.
Following the viral spread of the post, she followed up with a more detailed explanation and updated version of her hack.
"Poked eight strategically placed holes, strung them with embroidery floss, and tied the headband to the inside,” she wrote. “Then dotted the knots with super glue so they would hold for longer. Then if the rubber band breaks or gets too old, it can be easily replaced with a new one. I also put a roll of doggie bags in there for disposal and keeping the soiled clothes in.”
Rasco’s hack clearly appealed to parents tired of digging through cluttered diaper bags to find every little thing. Many wrote in the comments section that they’ve devised similar systems for their bags and others thanked the mom for sharing the idea.
“This would be great to keep in the car,” commented one parent. “This is brilliant!” added another.
