Common sense in the use of wet wipes
The characteristic of wet wipes is that they have liquid in them, and the content of liquid medicine in wet wipes generally accounts for about 80%. The main components are water and additives. In order to avoid the reaction between the water and the liquid medicine, the water used in the wet wipes must be specially treated water such as purified water, pure water, etc.
1. No substitute for hand washing
As early as a few years ago, the Ministry of Health of the People's Republic of China issued the "Management Specifications for Disinfection Product Labels and Instructions" that the packaging of toilet paper, wet wipes and other products should no longer be marked with words such as "disinfection" and "sterilization", but currently "disinfection" and "sterilization" "It remains an important selling point for these products. Because the selling point of wet wipes is "disinfection and sterilization", people will not wash their hands after using wet wipes, and completely forget that there are still chemical components left on their hands, which is not good for children.
Using wet wipes is not the same as washing your hands. The doctor emphasized that no matter how many times you wipe your hands with wet tissue, you cannot remove the bacteria on the surface of the skin. Washing hands with soap and running water is the cleanest. 2. Not reusable
A study in the United States also showed that when wet wipes are reused, instead of removing bacteria, some surviving bacteria are transferred to uncontaminated surfaces. Therefore, pay attention, it is best to change a paper towel every time you wipe a new surface, and do not use it to wipe sensitive parts such as eyes.
3. Do not rub your eyes directly It is particularly important to remind that you should use wet tissue to wipe your face less, especially not to directly wipe your eyes, middle ear and mucous membranes.
