Jun 01 , 2022

Compared with ordinary paper towels, disposable wet wipes have a greater cleaning effect on various types of dirt. Whether it's dust accidentally rubbed on your skin, mud hid between your fingers, or a few drops of soup accidentally dripped on the table, you can take it away with a wipe. Moreover, the surface of the wipes is softer, and it is not easy to cause friction damage to the smooth and tender skin of the child. Many mothers use disposable wet wipes to wipe their children's buttocks.

Many parents also know that disposable wet wipes can make cleaning easier. But there are all kinds of wet wipes on the market, how to choose the right one? Or is it enough to just buy "baby wipes"?

As a company dealing with disposable hygiene products, we have translated "How to use disposable wipes safely" from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) as a reference for parents who love cleanliness.

Ⅰ. How to choose and use different disposable wet wipes?

Before wiping children's skin or furniture at home, parents should pay attention to reading labels and choosing suitable wipes.

1. Makeup wipes and sanitary wipes for babies: Used to cleanse the skin and remove makeup.

2. Disinfection and disinfection wipes: It has a bactericidal effect and can be used to wipe the surfaces of furniture and equipment in homes, schools, sports parks and other places.

3. Medicated wipes: Helps prevent acne or other skin diseases.

Ⅱ. Are disposable wet wipes without fragrance added better?

If you don't like baby dry diaper overnight, wet wipes are generally classified as scented, unflavored or unscented. Fragrance ingredients will either be listed on the packaging or simply labeled "scent".

Note: Wipes that are labeled "unscented" may contain ingredients that mask their original odor, even though they have no noticeable odor. Wipes labeled "fragrance-free" have no added fragrance, but the product may have an odor.

If your child is allergic to some ingredients or has sensitive skin, remember to read the ingredient list before using disposable wet wipes to avoid allergies.

Ⅲ. What are the precautions for the use of disposable wet wipes?

Here are tips from the FDA and the National Poison Prevention Center for using disposable wipes:

1. Use cosmetic wipes only on unbroken skin and follow directions.

2. Read the instructions on the package of disinfectant wipes to ensure that they can be used to wipe the stove, tableware, and other places that come into contact with food.

3. Wet wipes used to disinfect or clean furniture surfaces should not be used on the skin. If you accidentally use antiseptic wipes on your child, wash the area immediately with soap and water.

4. Cover the outer packaging of disposable wet wipes in time to prevent the wipes from drying out, and do not place the wipes in a place that is too hot or too cold, as doing so will cause changes in the composition or growth of bacteria.

5. Throw away the used wipes immediately and keep them away from children. If the child accidentally puts the wipes in the mouth or has swallowed the liquid in the wipes, immediately let the child rinse the mouth to rinse the remaining liquid from the wipes in the mouth. Take your child to a doctor if necessary.
