Dry Wipes vs. Wet Wipes for Adults
Wet wipes for adults or children allow for convenient cleansing, and this is especially true with wipes that are disposable. Another benefit of wet wipes is the large selection available, including scented and unscented wipes as well as flushable wipes for adults.
Disposable washcloths, also known as dry wipes, are preferred for their lack of chemicals. Although they are less convenient than pre-moistened wipes, they are fairly simple to use. Disposable dry washcloths can easily provide user comfort by wetting with warm water.
Usually, standard dry wipes cost less than regular wet wipes. The lower price is due to the lack of solution in the dry wipes. Another benefit of dry wipes is its versatility for use as a “wet wipe” if needed. Rather than having all of the different solutions and ingredients that come with wet wipes, a dry wipe can simply be wetted with water, and then used. This process avoids harsh ingredients that may irritate the skin, so that the user can remain comfortable.
Dry wipes are also a viable solution when it comes to absorption needs. Since they contain no additive ingredients, they often offer higher absorbency than a wet wipe will. The downside to using these wipes, however, is that for some, they may not clean as well, or they may be too soft. Many dry wipes have adequate absorbency to serve in clean-up scenarios as well.
