The 10 Best Wet Wipes – Guide

Especially on the go, it is often difficult to clean your baby. Wet wipes are therefore particularly suitable for trips or long journeys, but are also suitable for use at home.

Our checklist summarizes all the important information on buying wet wipes. You can find the right product for your offspring in our product recommendations.

Wet Wipes Checklist

Use
  • Wet wipes are part of the basic equipment for families with children.
  • They are especially helpful when you are out and about because you don’t always have a sink nearby.
  • They are not only practical for changing diapers, but also allow you to quickly clean your child’s face, hands or feet.
  • Due to their single use, they are particularly hygienic but should be used sparingly for the sake of the environment.
Material
  • As a rule, wet wipes consist of a fleece that is soaked with a liquid.
  • The liquid varies depending on the manufacturer and product.
  • There is a suitable wet wipe for every skin type.
Packaging
  • In order for the wet wipes to be usable for a long time, the packaging should be airtight. This ensures that the wipes do not dry out and lose their function.
  • In general, the moisture content of the wipes is important. Cloths that are too wet offer an additional expense because you need another cloth to dry them. Cloths that are too dry, on the other hand, do not have the desired cleaning effect.
Ingredients
  • The skin of babies is thinner than that of adults. Therefore, pay close attention to the ingredients and make sure that the product is suitable for babies.
  • Fragrance-free products with few additives are best for children.
  • Alcohol, parabens or fragrances could irritate sensitive skin.
