      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      They sting, but they work

      Antiseptic wipes are an absolute must in our household and I always make sure to have some in my First Aid box and I also take them out with me during school holidays, in particular, if I am out and about with my daughter. My daughter is a live wire and never sits still. Consequently, she ends up tripping, slipping and falling a lot and that's the main reason I use antiseptic wipes as it tends to be for her sake rather than for my own.

      The brand I always trust is Savlon. I also use Savlon antiseptic cream and it's a brand I have been using now for many years. It is perhaps more expensive than the shop's own brands (and I use Tesco and Boot's own brands of antiseptic wipes too) but I do trust these wipes perhaps that tiny little bit more, in terms of ensuring that the wound is clear and clean and free from infection.

      Last time we used these wipes was over the Christmas holidays when Sarah fell off her bike. I have a pack of ten of these in the house an they cost only £2 from Superdrug. Each wipe is individually sealed to ensure it retains moisture and remains hygienic. Once I have opened the pack, there is a nice little soft white wipe which is large enough and moist enough to wipe over the area of skin which has been broken or damaged. It stings a lot when these wipes first make contact with the wound, though I also find that this is the case with the Tesco ones I use. The wipes are always moist enough but not overly so and they smell quite fresh and medicinal at the same time.

      The wipes dry off quite quickly, I have found, so it's best to make contact with the skin as soon as you break open the pack and gently wipe over the area. They prevent infection from settling into the wound and they really do protect the area and give me peace of mind.

      They are so handy to just keep in your bag and such a good idea. I always have them with me as I never know when I am likely to need to use one.

      It's a brand I trust, they are a good price and a high quality product and I certainly do recommend them.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Overall a great buy for people not shopping with a budget.

        I have used these Savlon Ant-septic wipes from time to time, I must admit, they are not a regularly purchase for me, but I do use them from time to time. My main reason for buying these, is probably because of there brand, Savlon cream is something I always have in my medicine box at home, and is a product I can remember being around as far back as I can remember, which is probably why I sometimes buy these wipes.

        But they are handy to have when I do buy them, they can be used for many different reasons, as I have two children, these wipes come in handy to clean messy faces up. And as they also contain antiseptic and are alcohol free, they also come in handy to treat any little accidents my children may have whilst out and about, as the antiseptic will clean and keep infections away, from any little cuts or scrapes.

        Each of these Savlon wipes is individually sealed, and this ensures that, they will not dry out, dried out wet wipes can be a real problem, with other wipes I have used. These wipes are a little on the expensive side, and it will cost you around £1.90, for ten wipes, so not really good value for your money, which is the real reason why I do not buy these more often.

        But when it comes to the brand Savlon, you can be sure of one thing, you will be getting good quality product from them, Savlon is a trusted, and well respected brand, which has been making products, which people love for years. You can not fail to notice this is a Savlon brand, as the packet has the colours, and the same style as the famous cream, it is the exact same colour blue, with the white Savlon writing on the front.

        Ingredients : Each tissue is impregnated with Aqua, Centrimo-nium Bromide, Chlorhexidine Digluconate, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

        These wipes are great around the house for keeping things clean and germ free, and also great for taking out, especially if you have kids, they are light, and pack away into your bag easily. They are really quite moist when took out, and are without a doubt, a high quality wet wipe, which are convenient to use. These wipes can be bought from chemists, all good supermarkets or online, they are good little wet wipes, but might not be for people shopping on a budget.

        If you like the sound of these wet wipes, then remember, keep them out of reach of any children, and never use them around somebody's eyes. I recommend these wipes as a product worth buying, but have knocked a star off, due to them being a little over priced.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Excellent wipes, worth every penny

        On our recent holiday, I deliberately packed a tube of Savlon antiseptic cream, as my daughter has had quite a few cuts and scrapes to her knees and needed 'magic cream' otherwise known as Savlon to make it better. However, whilst on our holiday, it wasn't my daughter that fell but instead it was me, walking along missing a sloping area and came down rather harshly on my knee and leg on rough stones leaving a rather bloody mess which stung like mad. Thankfully we were near to our campsite when it happened. Initially I got some water to clean up the area and then started to apply the Savlon cream as I thought that was all we had, however, my husband produced these Savlon antiseptic wipes that he carried in the first aid bag that stays in the back of our car, but thankfully I have never had need to use. I don't know what my husband paid for these wipes when he bought them, but I have saw them in the supermarket since for over £2 for a pack of 10.

        These wipes are designed to cleanse and protect against germs, and obviously try to prevent infection from getting in a wound. Each wipe is held within a sealed sachet, so you need to tear it open to get at it. The wipe sachets are an ideal size to keep in your handbag as well.

        It was my husband who actually used the wipe on my knee and leg, and although it stung like mad when he wiped, the amount of dirt that came away, despite me already washing the area, was quite scary. If my husband hadn't had those wipes it would have been very difficult to get the wound really clean, as washing with a cloth was not enough to cleanse it given the type of ground that I fell on. I was really pleased when my husband had finished and I was happy that the wound was really clean and then I applied my Savlon cream and my daughter was insistent that mummy put on a plaster!

        All in all, I saw first hand how effective these wipes are at cleaning a wound and making sure infection doesn't get in. The dirt from the stony ground that I fell on, came away easily with these wipes, in comparison to simply trying to clean a wound with water. I was confident that my wound was cleaned effectively and could then heal as it should. I am so glad my husband had these and in fact, I intend to purchase a pack to keep in the kitchen cupboard for such falls outside with my daughter.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A decent product

          I normally just buy the supermarkets own brand of antiseptic wipes as it is always something I have in my first aid box however when I was a Morrisons and needed to buy some I found that they didn't have their own verison and these were the only ones available so I bought a pack.

          The wipes cost me £2 for a box of 10 which is about double the price of what I usually buy so certainly more expensive and it's not as if you can only use half a wipe to make up the difference. You can buy theses online, in chemists on in the first aid aisle in supermarkets.

          The wipes come individually wrapped making them easy for keeping fresh and ideal for slipping into a little first aid kit to carry with you, we keep a mini first aid kit in both of our cars as our children are forever getting bumps and scrapes so it means we always have supplies handy.

          The wipes are packaged in a blue cardboard box with the Savlon logo on it, it is very easy to see that the product is from the Savlon range as the brand all have a very uniformed packaging.

          The wipes are easy to open simply tearing across the top of the packet, the wipes is white in colour and has a slight texture to it and it is folded up into a small rectangle inside the pack so you have to unfold it when you get it out of the packet. The wipes are about the size of a baby wipe so they are plenty big enough to deal with most childhood injuries and once you are finished they simly go in the bin.

          The wipes do sting when they are used and my eldest daughter who is a complete wimp screams as soon as the wipe toughes her wounds but then all anti septic wipes stings so I don't find these to be any different, the wipes have an antiseptic smell to them but then I think there is a hint of the smell of Savlon cream too. I have used about half the packet of these wipes and none of the injuries these have been used on have ever got infected or had any sort of complications so I believe they do the job well.

          I would give these wipes 4 stars from 5 as they are no better than the cheaper supermarket brands and therefore being double the price they lose a star, the wipes are very convienient and easy to use and give you confidence that your childs wounds are cleaned properly when you are out and about which is a big thing for a parent in my opinion.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Very good for on the go

          These are great for treating cuts and grazes to ensure that they do not get infected. I always carry these around with me when out and about with my daughter especially when visiting the park as like any young child she does have the occasional stumble and fall. The only real problem with this type of product is that now she has realised that they might sting when used and can be a bit of a pain when it comes to using one of these on her but generally the discomfort is only fleeting and soon passes. I paid a £1 for ten individually wrapped wipes from Poundland.

          Each wipe comes in its own sealed packet so that it retains the moist feel and does not dry out. They fold out to about the size of my hand and are very easy to use. They need to be disposed of once they have been used and cannot be used again.

          They are simple to use, just gently wipe across and around the infected area with the wipe and then apply a dressing, they effectively clean up the wound removing any dirt that may have got into it and significantly reduce the risk of any infection setting in. They are moist to the touch however they are not completely soaked in antiseptic that you have liquid dripping from them. They are also nice and soft so there are no abrasive qualities to them, the only discomfort is the stinging from the antiseptic.

          These are great for doing repairs on the go and especially while travelling abroad and they are an essential part of my holiday first aid kit. I certainly stocked up when I saw them in Poundland as they were a bargain price.

            easy to use

            I bought a packet of these Savlon antiseptic wipes to carry with me in my bag as I childmind for my daughter and my grandson is now two and at that age they seem to go twice as fast as their feet can carry them and consequently are always falling over or bumping into something.

            My grandson has the habit of running and not looking where he's going as he's too busy laughing and looking at you to see if your chasing him and has had many a bump and fall and scraped knee.

            These are great to use in cases like these if we are on the park or outside anywhere as they clean and protect against infection. They do sting a little but not for long when used but I think a little hurt isn't too bad if you know that the germs and possible infections are prevented. My mum used to say thats how you know it's working when it stings.
            You can wipe the cut, or scuffed knee clean and pop a plaster on quickly before giving the hugs better.

            Luckily my grandsons a little tough cookie and doesn't cry long when he falls so these are easy to use on him, before I pop a plaster on the scrap or broken skin.
            I also have used them when I have cut myself when cutting bread as I have them in the kitchen drawer as well as in my handbag.

            I paid £2.00 from Morrisons and got 10 individually wrapped wipes in the pack, which is great as they stay moist and fresh until you need to use them and throw them away. They can only be used once but are reasonably priced and affordable.

            I like the savlon range as it is a good brand and well known for it's antiseptic products.It's one I trust and will buy again.
            I'm happy to recommend these tyo you as they are convenient, they aren't too expensive and they are handy to carry around int he car, handbags and take on holiday.

            Fantastic antiseptic wipes for the whole family!

            My husband and I have quite a large family. We currently have 9 nieces and nephews which means that our days off are often spent spending time with our family. We love every moment usually but having lots of young children in the house at one time can often lead to scrapes and bumps, particularly if we go to the local park. This is the main reason that I always have a well stocked medicine cabinet and first aid box. Nobody likes to feel ill and I like to have the best quality items that I can afford for my nieces and nephews, particularly as I have one niece who is very accident prone!

            These Savlon wipes are available from Sainsburys for just £1.99 for 10. They come in a plastic packet and each one is individually wrapped which means I can always carry one or two in my handbag or picnic basket when out with the kids. These are very handy and because they are individually wrapped they are just so convenient and this was my main reason for purchasing these.

            When one of my nieces or nephews has scraped themselves I can just open one wipe and then use it to clean the affected area before using a solid or spray on plaster to keep the area clean and covered. Because these wipes contain antiseptic they do sting so I always try to avoid telling my niece or nephew and just go ahead and use it straight away. The stinging only lasts for a few seconds and after that the cut or graze is soothed as the antiseptic works and by the time a plaster is put on the tears have usually stopped from whomever is injured.

            I find these incredibly convenient, they are handy and small enough to be put in to a zip compartment of my bag. I usually keep a couple of these in my first aid kit too and they can last for absolutely ages without needing to be used.

            If you are prone to accidents or surrounded by accident prone people then these are just fantastic as they can be handed out individually and they work incredibly well. The packets are simple to open and I feel that 20p per wipe is ideal to keep areas free of dirt and germs.
