Hand sanitizing wipes come in handy when water and soap can’t be easily accessed. The best part is that you can carry them with you almost anywhere. They come in small sizes that fit perfectly in pockets, handbags, purses, and diaper bags.
In comparison to the traditional water and soap, hand sanitizers have been found to be more effective in eliminating germs and keeping your hands cleaner for long. Some also contain emollients which help in keeping your hands moisturized and soft.
What constitutes an ideal pack of sanitizing wipes?
