Basic Facts About This Product:
Wet Ones Antibacterial Moist Towelettes Citrus Scent are small towelettes measuring about 5.7 by 7.5 inches. They are packaged in a plastic, cylindrical container with a pop top for a dispenser. The pop top opening is in the center of a larger plastic cap, which can also be popped off completely to reveal the wipes on the inside.
Wet Ones Antibacterial Moist Towelettes Citrus Scent are scented with citrus, are hypoallergenic, and contain special ingredients that kill 99.99 percent of all germs. These wipes are designed for use on the hands and face, but they can be used for other purposes as well.
To prepare the dispenser on a container of Wet Ones Antibacterial Moist Towelettes Citrus Scent, the large top needs to be opened completely and a single wipe in the center of the roll needs to be fed through the dispenser. Once this initial feeding is complete, the wipes should pop up on their own, much like a box of tissues.
Wet Ones Antibacterial Moist Towelettes Citrus Scent uses the active ingredient Benzethonium Chloride (0.3%), which is used for Antibacterial purposes. The inactive ingredients inlcude Water, SD Alcohol 40, Propylene Glycol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Potassium Sorbate, Quaternium-52, Fragrance, PEG-60 Lanolin, Citric Acid, and Disodium EDTA.
Wet Ones Antibacterial Moist Towelettes Citrus Scent are among several cleanup products that we use in our household and they rank as one of the better wipes available for general purposes. These wipes are easily portable and the small canister is designed in such a way that it easily fits into a three- inch cupholder, making Wet Ones Antibacterial Moist Towelettes Citrus Scent great for use in the car.
Lots of manufacturers make wipes, but Wet Ones Antibacterial Moist Towelettes Citrus Scent offer several clear advantages. First, they are made for use on the skin, so there is no need to worry about harsh chemicals, like those often found in other wipes. Second, they are convenient and portable. The package is such that it can be taken anyplace, and we often take ours along in the same bag with our baby's diapers, pullups, etc. They come in very handy for wiping faces and hands without any irritation and with a scent that is better than that of a baby wipe.
Wet Ones Antibacterial Moist Towelettes Citrus Scent are thicker than baby wipes, too. In fact, they are slightly thicker than other general use wipes and they hold their own with no problem. They do not tear very easily and since they are usually used quickly and then disposed, they are plenty strong enough for the cleaning tasks for which they are designed.
Wet Ones Antibacterial Moist Towelettes Citrus Scent are wet, but only slightly wet. They are like laudry taken from a washing machine after the spin cycle is completed; which means they are moist but do not drip. This makes them ideal, once again, for wiping the skin and cleaning up small stains. They are designed for cleaning tasks like those mentioned above: Tasks that require some moisture but do not require flowing water and/or soap. The formula has been improved over the years and they are no longer sticky. The Wet Ones of old often felt slightly sticky, but the manufacturer has made improvements and eliminated this problem.
Threading the first wipe through the pop- top opening is sometimes a challenge, but once it is completed, the remaining wipes should feed through with no problem. This dispensing method is good, but not perfect. Sometimes, a wipe will be pulled out too slowly and the next wipe will not dispense automatically. When this happens, you have to pop the large top off and re- feed the towelettes. I have found that this also happens near the end of the container. When there are only a few towlettes left, the automatic feeding mechanism may no longer function the way it should, forcing the consumer to open up the top and grab the towlettes one by one.
Wet Ones Antibacterial Moist Towelettes Citrus Scent offer a nice, fresh scent but the scent is mild enough that it doesn't leave any trace when used on the skin. That means that you can use it on your own skin- not just your baby's skin- without worrying that your skin will smell like citrus or that you will be able to taste citrus if the towelletes are used close to your mouth.
Overall, Wet Ones Antibacterial Moist Towelettes Citrus Scent are a very handy product from Playtex and they have many positive qualities that make them a worthwhile addition to your cleaning routine. They kill germs, smell nice, offer portable convenience, and are priced lower than other, similar wipe products. Add everything up and you have a product that is certainly better than average, earning Wet Ones Antibacterial Moist Towelettes Citrus Scent an easy recommendation.
