I received this product to facilitate my review, all opinions are my own.
I was really excited to get to try out WaterWipes for this blog post. I use wipes in my home all the time for everything and I had never heard of this brand before so I thought it would be great to try something new. I have a 9 year old daughter with a syndrome and a lot of developmental delays so she is not fully potty trained and is more like a 4 year old when it comes to wiping her hands, cleaning up after herself, etc. So for me, baby wipes have been a lifesaver since the day she was born! As soon as I opened the WaterWipes package I was thrilled and immediately started using them and haven't stopped using them. My daughter has an iPad that she uses all the time, and of course it needs cleaned at least twice a day for germs and food residue. The first time I tried the WaterWipes on it I was amazed at the job they did - they are far more damp than regular wipes which makes them superb for cleaning up messes of any kind. When my daughter had a #2 potty accident I used the WaterWipes and they did a great job of cleaning up with much less wipes than normal :) That is a great thing in our house! I also have been using the WaterWipes for cleaning counters, my computers, tv and other messes and they work excellent. Because of their dampness it gives the surface a good cleaning and then I wipe it dry with a towel and it looks like there was nothing there.
I have always heard about regular wipes containing chemicals and causing rashes and it always concerned me so I always stuck with the 1 brand I knew didn't cause issues for my daughter. However with WaterWipes you don't have to worry about that because in addition to being good for people with allergies, they are free of chemicals - they are made up of 99.9% water and .1% grapefruit seed extract. You don't find them any more pure than that! I received a pack of 240 wipes which contained 4 packs with 60 wipes each and I also received a box which contained 540 wipes. I haven't even needed to open the box yet, I am still using the smaller pack even after a month. WaterWipes are a European brand of wipes and the water they use is Irish water. They are MUCH thicker than any other wipes I have used and just the fact that they are so much safer to use makes them my choice from now on. WaterWipes have won several awards including the Maternity Infant Award 2013 and the LBP (Loved By Parents) 2013 award as well as others. So you can rest assured when buying and using these wipes on your baby.
A few facts about WaterWipes:
... they are free of chemicals and preservatives
... they will last for up to 2 years before being opened
... it is recommended that you use a package within 3 months of opening it
... WaterWipes are not folded like normal wipes where when you pull one out another comes out ready to go. This helps to maintain the sterility of the wipes left in the package
... It is not recommended to remove the wipes from the package until being used
Here are some of the awards that WaterWipes has won:

All in all I would highly recommend these to ANY parent no matter the age of the child as they are safe and have no chemicals. Plus with all the allergies rampant today these will not cause problems.
