Recently had a stay in hospital and they gave me a wipe that was dry, kind of like a thin disposable flannel. Does anyone know if these are available to buy for the public or is this just a medical thing?
Was your wipe being used alongside products such as foams? You might be thinking of an incontinence dry wipe. These are used as an alternative to using harsh soap and water methods. They can be used alongside foam and body wash to maintain hygiene.
The most popular brand of dry wipes is Conti wipes. You can find these online incontinence shops such as Incontinence Supermarket here.
What would you be looking to use the dry wipe for? Some wipes are suitable for use on the face and hands alongside continence care. Other wipes are less suitable for sensitive skin and should be used only below the waist.
Do you have sensitive skin? I’m happy to recommend you an ideal wipe.
The foams are perfect for use with dry wipes, as they is designed to provide an alternative to soap and water. It provides a water repellent barrier to prevent rewetting and is a fast solution to protecting the skin.
