One woman has been thanked by hundreds of parents for her baby wipe hack discovery.
The mum came across the trick accidentally and shared it on the Facebook group, The Motherload.
Lauren Martin was in the middle of changing her son Noah's nappy when she came across the revelation.
The 29-year-old felt compelled to share the trick with parents after realising how to pull just one baby wipe from the packet instead of several at once, Hull Live reports.
Lauren had accidentally ripped the thin plastic on the packaging, and for the first time was able to pull just one baby wipe out.
Sharing her tip on the Facebook group The Motherload, Lauren wrote: "My son is 19 months and I'm ONLY just 'discovering' that if you fully rip open wipes they'll come out one by one and not a whole bunch that string out while I'm trying to change a dirty nappy and undo a wipe with my double chins.
"This may or may not be known and I'm a tit… but I felt I had to share."
According to the publication, the post had over 1,000 reactions and 400 comments, with many parents saying their minds had been blown, while others called it game-changing.
One mum said: "I have been a parent for over ten years and I have never heard of this!! Mind blown!!"
Another said: "OMG thank you for this! I'm often changing my son's bottom and holding his legs, fighting his escape, while having what seems like a ninja attack with the baby wipes as they come out in a long line of wipes! I'm flapping about like a nutter."
A third added: "No way! I thought all the packs were bloody faulty, lmao, but we love Aldi wipes so wasn't changing them. Thanks for that!"
Another replied: "Jesus Christ, what a game changer."
Speaking about the post, Lauren said: "I ripped it by mistake at one side and pulled one out and it ripped off the side, and I thought 'well this is a bit like if you're using cling film'.
"It kind of rips it for you so I ripped both sides and that was that, it was a pure accidental hack.
"I never thought the post would get this reaction. I thought either it wouldn't get a reaction or that people would have known and I was just late to the news. I usually am.
"My son is called Noah and is a whirlwind so this has helped massively already because he's a wriggler, and he's getting stronger so I need to be quick."
