I HATE wet-wipes

Posted 28th Nov
The world's gone wet-wipe crazy. We have wet wipes, toilet cleaning wipes , wet toilet tissue wipes , leather wipes, stainless steel wipes, anti - bacterial wipes , face wipes, make up removing wipes, self-tanning wipes, and for the car - dash wipes and hand cleaning wipes.

What's the issue people have with a cloth and water or a bottle of the appropriate cleaner? My wife and dauber use them all the time, for everything. They don't seem to realise that wipes don't clean as such, once wiped they then just spread the dirt around.

That's without the 'fatberg' argument.

You wouldn't want to get those the wrong way 'round.

They are a convenience to most folks though. Simple as that
Posh masterbatory sessions

Whereas you give them a wipe berth.

Oops, typo. Daughter! Though maybe the typo is a better description.

I like the wipe berth though.
Laziness, nothing more nothing less.
Antibacterial wet wipes are more hygienic that using a reusable cloth to wipe surfaces.

That's my reason, although I don't really use much. Only for emergencies in the car.

Yes, as a wipe after cleaning and removing any debris. Otherwise no difference.

These get flushed away and generate fat bergs whereas cloths can be washed again and again. Despise the disposable mindset.
Wet wipes is just cloth in soaked in water some have added antibacterial. If you want antibacterial cloth. Just get a spray bottle of dettol and use a sheet of plenty. I find it more annoying having to carefully seal the wet wipes after each use. Becomes more difficult the emptier it gets.

I use several wet wipes per surface to clean. Using cloths will only transfer the dirt back on to the surface. Unless you were to use several.

I asked, "What is the difference between a reusable cloth and a wet wipe in spreading dirt around?" for OP's statement, "...once wiped they then just spread the dirt around."

You said and ignored my question, "These get flushed away and generate fat bergs whereas cloths can be washed again and again. Despise the disposable mindset."

Could you handle my question please, here it is again. "What is the difference between a reusable cloth and a wet wipe in spreading dirt around?

Then, I shall ask you to answer about your fat bergs.
