“ Brand: Andrex / Type: Wipes „
* Prices may differ from that shown
When my daughter started potty training I decided we needed something flushable, but more than just toilet paper. She was using a potty and I didn't want to confuse her by using baby wipes, nor did I want to be scooping out baby wipes to put in the bin!
I went to my local Asda where I saw several types of moistened toilet tissue wipes. I immediately chose Andrex as we use their regular toilet tissue and I know it to be soft and good quality. I paid £1.68 for a pack which contains 42 wipes. I felt this was quite expensive, as her baby wipes coss less than £1 each ( we buy a box of 12 packs for £9) however I needed them and didn't want to use cheaper brands.
The wipes come in either plain or watermelon scented. I bought the watermelon ones and they do smell gorgeous! The packet is green with the Andrex puppy on and a garden scene. Colourful and bright which appeals to children.
To open the pack, you pull the clear tab much like baby wipes. You then pull out a wipe and push the tab back down. My problem with this is that whilst it is easy to open the pack, sealing it to prevent the wipes drying out isn't as easy because it doesn't stick too well. However a bit of firm pressing and so far so good, no dry wipes yet!
The other problem is that when you try to get a wipe out, you often end up with several as they do not come apart easily. When you're in a rush (ie. trying to wipe a potty training child) this isn't ideal - nor is it ideal for a child learning to wipe as they end up with a handful of wipes and confusion!
The wipes themselves smell nice, are pH neutral and dermatologically tested, so I can trust that they are going to be gentle on her skin. They're not as soft as baby wipes but they are soft enough. They clean well (just like baby wipes really) and are so easy to dispose of, as you can empty the potty into the toilet or simply flush the wipes. They also come in a tub which is handy.
Overall these are a good buy for potty training especially, and although they are pretty much the same as other wipes or moistened tissue, these ones do smell nice and are gentle, so well worth buying.
