Pampers Simply Clean Wipes
Advantages: cheap, bigger packs
Disadvantages: not very wet
From the moment our daughter was born we used Pampers Sensitive wipes, as we felt they were value for money, brilliant at doing their job, and gentle. However, now that she is fully potty trained, we no longer need the most gentle wipes as we're no longer using them to wipe her bottom. Instead, we tend to use wipes for her hands, mouth and other handy little things like messy finger marks, removing make up etc.
We tried a few of the other leading wipes before coming across Pampers Simply Clean, which were on offer at £1 per pack in Asda. Each pack has 64 wipes which is better value as Pampers Sensitive recently decreased their packs from 64 wipes to 56, meaning if you buy a box of 12 (as we always did) it works out as losing 1 whole pack!
Pampers Simply Clean is the budget range of Pampers - like the Simply Dry nappies.
Pampers Simply Clean come in a bright orange pack with 64 wipes in. I am yet to see a multipack available, so I presume there isn't one. They are typically on offer at £1 per pack in most supermarkets and even Boots, although the RRP is £1.50. The wipes are dermatologically tested and fragrance free according to the packaging. The packaging depicts a smiling baby and the Pampers logo. Each wipe is embossed with a cute baby pattern.
The wipes are average sized and reasonably thick - about the same as Pampers Sensitive. They are less wet though. They feel damp but not wet, not greasy either. There is no fragrance, although you can get the exact same pack with a light orange fragrance. The wipes are comparatively small compared to Johnsons wipes, but to be honest I have always felt Johnsons wipes were really big in comparison to Pampers Sensitive, so maybe I'm just used to smaller wipes!
I have used them on my daughter's bottom a few times (she has nappies at night time) and they do the job well, although you do need quite a few as they aren't as wet as other wipes. I mainly use them on her hands and face and they do the job well, not much to say about it really!
The thing I favour the most is that when you open the wipes (you pull up the clear sticky tab and push it back down to reseal) you can pull out a wipe and.... only one comes out!! With all the other brands I've tried, you end up pulling out 3 or 4 which is a nuisance and a waste if you only need one. So ultimately this put Simply Clean into my good books!
For regular nappy changing I would probably stick to Pampers Sensitive - as they are more gentle, and more wet so I think it'd be quicker and easier and kinder to my daughter's skin. But for quick clean ups on her hands etc. Simply Clean do the job just fine! I have also used them to remove my make up but I find that these are not as gentle as Pampers Sensitive and can sting a bit, and it also takes a bit longer as they aren't as wet.
All in all, a good budget wipe!
Summary: a good budget wipe!
