WaterWipes Professional Care - Adult wipes Material

The material that we use to make WaterWipes Professional Care is made using a blend of 80% Polyester and 20% Viscose. Viscose comes from wood so its 100% natural and biodegradable, which makes 20% of our wipe material biodegradable. We are currently working on making all our wipes 100% biodegradable - and have a commitment to do this by 2020. At present, as we are not 100% biodegradable, you will see the non-flushable symbol on all packs.

Wipe Warmer

We do not recommend that WaterWipes are removed from their pack and transferred to any another container, nor should the pack be over-warmed. They are a fresh product and should be stored in a cool dry place. We recommend WaterWipes are used within 4 weeks of opening. Not Suitable for microwave heating.

Ingredients comparison

My WaterWipes feel slightly dry, what can I do about this?

Because WaterWipes don’t use chemicals to "bind" the liquid to the wipes, the water can sometimes migrate to the bottom of the pack. To remedy this, with the sticker properly resealed, turn your pack of WaterWipes upside down and then gently squeeze and massage the pack for a few seconds. This will quickly redistribute the water more evenly throughout the pack and get the wipes back to the same consistent wetness that they had when they were made in our cleanroom process.

If you are storing your wipes for some time, we recommend you store the packs label-side down before use.

Use by Date

All packs should be used within 15 months of production. The Use by date is on each pack.

Packaging

WaterWipes product packaging is hermetically sealed this means it is completely airtight and retains its freshness until opened. Each pack has a moisture protecting closure.
