People use wet wipes for various purposes – for baby hygiene, makeup removal, hand cleansing, and even during cleaning. However, experts believe that it is better to abandon such a product for several reasons, NBN reports with reference to Livestrong.

Firstly, wet wipes create a deceptive feeling of cleanliness, because even hand disinfectants that contain 60% alcohol does not kill all types of germs. It's best to simply wash your hands with soap and water if possible.

In addition, when you change your baby's diaper, if you have water, soap and a towel nearby, you should use them rather than wet wipes.

Secondly, wet wipes contain fragrances that can cause allergies. To replace this hygiene product, you can pour chlorhexidine into a small container and soak a small towel or scarf with it. To disinfect your hands, you should use a sanitizer.
