Like most parents we have a favourite brands for things, Bottles, nappies and wet wipes to name just a few. So when the lovely people at WaterWipes contacted us to try their Wipes I did so with a little hesitation.
We’ve always used Huggies Pure Wipes since Oliver had an allergic reaction to another brand we haven’t strayed since. However my wife and I had heard good things about WaterWipes but just never given them ago due to our fear of the unknown really.
A Bit About WaterWipes
Taken from the WaterWipes website
WaterWipes are the only wipe made using just water and a drop of grapefruit seed extract. WaterWipes are the only wipe in the UK to be approved by Allergy UK.
We were sent four packs of the large pack of wipes (60s) and four 10 wipe carry packs.
The carry packs are fantastic as I can slip them in my baby bag with a couple of nappies, snacks, water and a change of clothes for Leo and off we go without having to carry around a normal size pack of wipes. I say this because one of the first things we noticed was that these wipes weighed more then the Huggies wipes, considering that the wipes are 99.9% Water that isn’t surprising when you stop to think about it.
Being that these wipes were mainly water I was also worried that they wouldn’t have the ‘cleaning power’ so to speak. Well I was proven wrong. They cleaned better then Huggies and also because they have the 0.01% fruit extract they also left a subtle smell that wasn’t what I had just cleaned up.
One of the things that we also use wipes for, probably like most parents, is to clean up your child after they have eaten, whatever it is they’ve eaten, and these wipes were fantastic. They cleaned no problem and were moist enough that they kept the boys faces moist as well.
To be honest I can’t find anything bad to say about the product, they are fantastic.
My only complaint, now that I’m a covert to WaterWipes after how fantastic they were during our test is the cost. They are on average £1.50 more expensive for an individual pack when we compared them to our usually Huggies wipes. However I will definitely be buying them when they are on offer in the future.
