Disinfecting wipes: can be used to wipe hands, tables and chairs, and clean hands before and after meals or when there is no water or soap, but its function is limited to this. Because the ingredients contained in some disinfected wipes will also affect the human body, such as chlorine, bleaching powder, alcohol, etc., these ingredients will not be indicated on the package, but will stimulate the skin, mucous membrane, eyes, damage the sebum film that protects the skin, and frequent use will make the skin dry. Therefore, disinfectant wipes cannot be used to directly wipe eyes, wounds and private parts.

Women's care wipes: most of them are added with antibacterial drugs, claiming that "they can clean private parts, prevent bacteria from breeding, and keep fresh and avoid taste." But it is not recommended that women often use it to wipe their private parts. Although it can inhibit bacteria to a certain extent, it can't kill bacteria, but it will break the original acid-base in women's bodies and cause various gynecological diseases.

Baby wipes: baby's skin is very delicate. Therefore, compared with adult wipes, baby wipes have higher requirements. Baby wet wipes can be divided into ordinary wipes (wiping buttocks) and special wipes for hands and mouth. Alcohol, essence, preservatives and fluorescent agents cannot be added to baby wipes, but they cannot be taken lightly. Especially babies who like to eat their hands can't often wipe their hands with wet tissue. They can use gauze or towel dipped in warm water to wipe them.
