Bathroom wipes aren’t generally a topic that comes up in casual conversation so let’s just clear the air here: If you want a cleaner experience after your next visit to a restroom on the road or the bathroom at home, they’re a great option. Here are five popular brands of wipes you should have with you next time.
Cottonelle FreshCare Flushable Wipes
Cottonelle says their wipes clean better than toilet paper alone thanks to their large, dual layers. With this 8-pack (with 42 wipes each), you’ll have about 330 chances to find out for yourself.
Amazon Elements Baby Wipes
Amazon Elements’ Baby Wipes are made without alcohol, bronopol, dyes, parabens and phthalates. (We’re not even sure how to pronounce some of those words!) Instead, each wipe is 98.3 percent pharmaceutical-grade purified water. They come in three options: fresh scent, unscented and sensitive skin (which is the one we recommend for infants). Each of the six flip-top packs has 80 wipes.
Stall Mates’ wipes are septic and sewer safe and remain sealed and sanitary for two years in their individual 3×3 inch wrappers. Once removed, they unfold to 8×6 inches and feature a hypoallergenic formula that’s free of parabens, alcohol and artificial fragrances.
Dude Wipes Flushable Wet Wipes
Dude wipes are made from sustainable 100 percent plant-sourced fibers. While they’re unscented, they do contain aloe vera and vitamin E for a soothing touch. Added bonus: They come in a 3-pack and each pack has 48 wipes, but they’re also available for purchase in individual wrappers, so if you love them, you can take them on the road.
Preparation H Flushable Medicated Hemorrhoid Wipes
Nobody likes to say the “H” word, but reports show that more than half of Americans over the age of 50 experience trouble with hemorrhoids at some point. Preparation H’s flushable wipes are a great way to treat flare-ups but also are gentle enough for everyday use.
