“ Brand: Pampers / Type: Wipes „
=Pampers Simply Clean Wipes=
I know they are a Baby product, but my daughter has long grown out of baby products, but wipes are one thing that we keep using, and wouldn't be without.
I will say we're not exactly brand loyal.
These are available for most retailers, in the baby section, but I stumbled across these in my local poundland store, so an grade from my normal Tesco baby wipes.
The packet is a bright orange plastic, with a photograph of a woman and a child on the front, the packet is a rectangular shape.
On the packet, it states there are 64 wipes, that they are Dertologically Tested, as well as other information from ingredients to the contact details. Also there is a do not flush reminder on there and that once the packet is opened it has a 3 month shelf life.
There is a sticky label on the front of the packet and you pull the wipes out and reseal, although sometimes I find that I pull more than one wipe and when you shove them in they never go back in the same.
No I haven't lost the plot, I promise, but the wipes have chickens imprinted into the wipes, why chickens, no idea?
They get stored in the coffee table draw and seem to have a 1001 uses, from the wiping of sticky fingers, if we have knocked a drink on the table, I have even used them to remove make up when I run out of wipes, (they worked), we've even used them on the dog.
=Would I recommend=
i would highly recommend these wipes, there really moist, they don't dry out as soon as you get them out of the packet, and they are a good strength wipe.
When it come to handy wet wipes I really am rather a fan of them. Not only do I have a habit of eating on the go but I handle 2 gorgeous hamsters (Englebert and Winnie) often plus my kitten (I can only call her that for 3 more days till her birthday by the way lol) and I have also used them for general freshening up when I've been bedridden and feeling rather under the weather (I suffer with M.E).
These I bought a pack of of in my local Poundland store for of course....just a pound and of course these are marketed for use on babies and toddlers but can also be used for us single people too should we want to use them or literally anyone!
These wipes come in a a bright orange coloured plastic and oblong shaped pack with a photograph on the front of them of a woman and child and we are clearly told what they are and who they are by on there and that on the pack I bought (for just a pound remember!) that there are 64 wipes in it and that they are Dermatologically Tested and then on the back of the pack other information given includes the ingredients being given, we are told that from once opening the pack to use them up within 3 months, to only bin them and not flush them and contact details for the manufacturer are stated. Nice enough, bright and informative enough packaging this is and the sticky see through label to the front of the pack works well to dispense a wipe out of though annoyingly sometimes I can't grab just one wipe out of it and get two to which then I have to shove one back in of!
These wipes are made from a thick but still see through cotton like material with integrated pictures of chickens shown on it (I think!). They are wide and go into an oblong shape, really thick but still stretchy enough and I like the thickness and dampness of these very much indeed. These are damp enough to clean sticky messes on us plus grime, have a fresh and gentle fruity aroma to them and do leave my skin feeling really fresh and clean after using them!
I am a big fan of these! They clean me up so I know they could a tot and leave my skin feeling gently moisturised in a none greasy way and I also am left smelling wonderful for ages so yep another Pampers product that I give a huge thumbs up to, though this time these are suitable for all the family to get using!!
Available from all good supermarkets and chemists etc.
Whenever I go into my local Superdrug I always have a quick look at the reduced section as they often have some baby bits in there. During a recent trip to Superdrug I found some Pampers wipes in the reduced section, after checking that they were infract reduced and hadn't just been dumped there I decided to buy them, I didn't really need any wipes but they were a bargain and also a variety of Pampers I hadn't yet tried, the wipes were called Pampers Simply Clean.
The packaging that the Pampers Simply Clean come in is a rectangle packet made from a strong plastic type material, it is bright orange and has a clear plastic strip across the middle which allows you to open it and remove the wipes, it simply sticks back down to keep the wipes moist and fresh. The top of the packet has the name of the product "Pampers Simply Clean" written at the top in white and the amount of wipes in the packet towards the bottom, there is not a huge amount of product information on the front of the packet and the rest of the space is taken up by a picture of a baby and mother smelling a daisy. All of the product information is on the back of the packet statements about the wipes, what they can be used for and the ingredients, all of the product information is written in a dark green which really stands out against the orange background, all of the information is repeated in several languages.
Pampers Simply Clean Baby Wipes are like most baby wipes, a large rectangle shape which is folded up inside the packet, the first thing I noticed about the wipes was the fragrance, as with all of the Pampers Wipes the fragrance is gentle and delicate, I'm not sure exactly what the fragrance is supposed to be but it reminds me of a sweet fruity smell which personally I like as it leaves Jayden's skin clean and fresh smelling. These wipes are described as being soap free, alcohol free and dermatologically tested, I was pleased to see this as it meant that they were going to be gentle of Jayden's skin, whilst he doesn't seem to have sensitive skin and can use most products, I do not want to use something that is going to be overly harsh on his skin, I would rather know that there is a minimal chance of the product irritating his skin. As the wipes are gentle they can be used for pretty much anything, there are a series of small pictures on the back of the packet which show where the wipes can be used, it states that you can use them on your baby's face, to clean their hands or during nappy changes, personally I mainly use mine for when I change his nappy, however it is handy to know that they are safe to use on his hands and face, especially if we are out and he gets a bit messy.
Price and Availability
As I have mentioned I purchased my Pampers Simply Clean Baby Wipes from my local Superdrug, however they are also available in other chemists such as Boots as well as most supermarket. I'm not sure how much these wipes should have been in Superdrug, however I have seen them available in Boots and full price a pack of 64 wipes which is what I purchased costs £1.42, I got mine reduced to 99p, however even at full price the wipes are not too badly priced.
I was pleased with my Pampers Simply Clean Baby Wipes especially as they were so cheap, I particularly like the fragrance of these and the fact that they are gentle on Jayden's skin. Another advantage of these wipes for me is the fact that you can use them for a variety of things. For me the only real disadvantage of these is that compared to other Pampers Baby Wipes I have tried they do not seem to be as moist which means I do find I have to use more than normal but I wasn't too worried about this as I hadn't paid full price for them. In terms of the fact that the smell lovely and do their job in keeping my baby's skin clean and smell fresh I would recommend these wipes, and they are not too badly priced either for a large packet of wipes, however I do wish there was a bit more moisture in them.
- Why I bought -
I quite often buy Pampers baby wipes to use with my baby because it is a brand I trust. Last summer I noticed Pampers did a range of wipes called Simply Clean which along with their Simply Dry nappies aim to give the usual Pampers quality but at a more affordable price. This all sounded good to me so as Boots had a 3 for 2 deal on all their baby products I bought nine packs of the wipes.
- The Packaging -
The packet is bright orange rather than the usual turquoise colour I associate with Pampers. I don't love the orange colour but the packet isn't that important to me. There is a photo of a mother and baby on the front and all the usual information is on the back. The wipes are easy to remove from the packet and you don't end up with ten wipes in one go. There is a sticker to reseal the packet so the wipes stay wet and fresh.
- The wipes -
The wipes I bought were the fragranced version but they are also available fragrance free. You get 72 wipes in a pack, which is better than the usual 60 something you get in most packs of wipes. The wipes are white with little chicks on them. However, there are several things I disliked about these wipes. Firstly there is an overwhelming smell which to me smells of flowers and peaches, but not in a nice way. They have the scent of a cheap air freshener so if I were to buy them again I would definitely opt for fragrance free. I also found the wipes to be smaller than most wipes and not as thick, therefore you end up using twice as many than you might with other wipes. This makes them much less cost effective, despite the lower price of the wipes. The wipes are adequately moist but due to the size and thickness it is quite hard to clean a baby's bottom with these wipes. They didn't cause any irritation though and the packet states they are dermatologically tested.
- Price and Availability -
I think they were priced at around £1.20 per pack when I bought them so with the deal it worked out at about 80p per pack. I can see at the moment they are sold at £1.40 per pack in Tesco or £1 per pack on Amazon. I don't think any of these prices are good value for money as you need more wipes to get the job done.
- Would I recommend? -
I wouldn't recommend these wipes and I won't be buying them again. I am getting through the nine packs I bought very slowly as I buy other wipes and prefer to use them instead. Buying these wipes because they are cheaper is a false economy because you end up using twice as many wipes anyway.
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!
I recently put in an order for asda groceries, and by the time I had reached the end of my shopping list, I was getting tired and a bit fed up to be honest as it seemed to take ages, and since I needed baby wipes, I noticed that Asda had these Pampers Simply Clean wipes on offer for a £1, and having never seemed them before and not knowing much about them, I clicked them into my basket, without reading about them.
When my Asda delivery arrived I got to look at these wipes more, and realised that they are, if you like, the budget range from Pampers, following their cheaper range of Simply Dry Pampers nappies. They may be the 'affordable' range from Pampers, but they are still alcohol free, soap free and dermatologically tested. They do apparently come both scented and unscented, however I didn't quite realise that and just picked the pack online. My pack was bright orange in colour and so could be easily seen on the supermarket shelf, and within each pack there are 64 wipes. At £1 these are good value.
The only wipes that I have ever bought or used on my daughter have been fragrance free, which is why I explained at the beginning why I ended up buying this pack, which had scented wipes. Although there is nothing on the packaging to say what scent these wipes are, I smell an orange scent when I open up each wipe, although it isn't overly strong.
Each wipes is embossed with a baby pattern, but it isn't the biggest wipe around. In fact, I would say Johnson's wipes are much bigger than these and therefore when I encounter a dirty nappy, I end up going through rather a lot of them.
When I first started using these wipes, I was a little apprehensive given that they were scented however initially I thought they were okay on my daughter's bottom, and cleaned it well enough, despite the smallness of the wipe. However, after several days I did think that my daughters bottom looked a little redder than normal, and although this could totally be coincidence, I was worried that it was related to these new wipes, and decided to put them into my changing bag when out and about, so they wouldn't be the wipes I would be using all day everyday until they were used up, and then I wouldn't be buying them again.
All in all, these are affordable wipes, however they are scented and they aren't the biggest in size meaning that you use more when cleaning a dirty bottom. If your baby has sensitive skin, don't do what I did and hope these would be okay, I now realise I shouldn't use anything else apart from fragrance free wipes.
I purchased this product for a change as it was on special offer at the supermarket. I usually buy Johnson's baby wipes and have in the past used several other brands of baby wipes. As a result I have a good basis to compare Pampers Simply Clean wipes to several other brands. Unfortunately, Pampers baby wipes, in my opinion do not come out as favourably!
Well, how much can you say about a baby wipe? Pampers Simply Clean Wipes are presented in bright orange, attractive packaging, which is what partly caught my eye. The pack has a picture of a smiling baby on it. You can't see the mother's face, probably because she would be scowling after using these wipes on her baby's bottom!!
On the side of the pack, is the word 'value', giving the impression that these wipes are cost effective. Pampers wipes are fragrance, alcohol and soap free, which is good for babies who have sensitive skin (which is most babies!). There are 72 wipes to a pack, and the wipes are dermatologically tested.
These wipes were on special offer when I bought them and cost £1.89. However, prices can vary and the RRP is around £2.25. It's always worth shopping around for the best deal.
I'm afraid I would not recommend these baby wipes after comparing them with similar priced leading brands. The reason is that they are very small in size, and I have to use more baby wipes than other brands. Therefore they are not as good value as they claim to be! In addition, when you pull out a baby wipe, a large amount of wipes come out at once and it is faffy to put them back in when trying to change your baby's nappy. As a result too many baby wipes get wasted. Overall, I have not been impressed and would recommend cheaper brands or other leading brands if you want value for money and product satisfaction. A disappointing offering from Pampers.
Pampers is a recognised brand offering nappies and wipes for your babies little bums! They fall under the Procter and Gamble company.
Pampers have their own range of baby wipes that usually sit around the £2.00-£2.50 mark per pack. Last year, they released a new nappy range called Simply Dry which were cheaper than their standard nappies. To coincide with the nappy release, they also released baby wipes with the Simply Clean name. You can purchase these in scented or unscented.
Baby wipes are generally designed to clean a babies bum and should be able to cope with little widdles and stinky deposits too! The wipes have been dermatologically tested so are suitable for most skins. They are also alcohol and soap free.
Like most wipes, they come in a plastic packet. This particular packet is a bright orange colour. There is a round hole with a sticky label for keeping the wipes moist. The Pampers logo and Simply Clean name can be found on the top of the packet alongside a photo of mummy and baby.
On the bottom of the packet you will find the ingredients and contact details for Pampers. The writing is in many languages as these wipes are produced in the EU.
The packet can be recycled. The wipes are not supposed to be flushed and must be used up within 3months of opening.
The wipes themselves are white and a bit smaller than regular Pampers wipes. They are a good thickness and have little chick images embossed onto them. They are moist without being soaking wet.
Well this is kind of self explanatary. You take one out the pack and wipe whatever your little cherub offers you in their nappy. They can also be used for toilet training and various other jobs.

*Availability and Price*
A 72pk is available for around £1.40 in the likes of Asda and Boots. Iceland and Poundland also stock these at £1.00.
Being a mother to one stinky little 2yr old, as you can image, I go through alot of baby wipes. I have regular stinky and wee wee bums to change and need something that will do the job and not leave me with icky hands! I normally buy Boots own wipes as they are usually on offer at 3pks for £2.50 which to me is good value compared to Pampers, Johnsons and Huggies! I pick these up occassionally if I have ran short and been in Iceland. Usually we go for fragrance free though they didn't have any of them left so fragranced it is!
The pack is bright and attractive though I understand why they are cheap as they have clearly been imports. The sticker sticks very well and keeps the wipes moist though this can be an issue when you are knee deep in stinkiness as the sticker jumps back easily.
The good thing is that only one wipes comes out at a time so therefore reduces waste. They are quite small but do the job even if you need 1 or 2 more per bum change. The moistness is just right and as they are soap free, they don't foam up or leave a messy residue on babies bum! They are gorgeously scented with what I think may be apple. They smell sweet which is a change from some scented wipes. They do their job well and clean without causing any nappy rash.
I don't just use wipes for my sons little bum. I also use them for cleaning sticky fingers and faces and they are gentle on his sensitive skin. I use them on myself to freshen up and the apple scent leaves a pleasant trace on my skin and I feel clean and fresh. I also use them for cleaning my tv unit as I feel the dust clears away better without spreading. They are also ideal for cleaning up my sofa which is manky lol.
I wasn't very impressed with the Simply Dry nappies though the wipes work well and are reasonably cheap so I am giving them 4stars!
Thanks for reading...ooohhh nooooo another stinky bum!
I've been using these wipes for a couple of months, and I really like them.
The packet is made of plastic with a sticker that peels back and is meant to reseal, but doesn't after a few openings, this doesn't matter so much with us as we tend to get though a packet every day or two so they don't get chance to dry up.
I love this scent, it's very fresh and fruity, it is quite strong but this doesn't matter too much because it's pleasant and also because the smell that transfers to your baby is very subtle. For those who don't like the scent they do an alternative fragrance free version.
The Cost and Availability
I believe these wipes are available widely at a cost of about £2.00 per pack. I tend to buy them at our local discount shop for £1.00 per pack, but they are often on offer at other stores, promotions like buy two for £2.50 etc.
The most important aspect, the wipes are thick enough so that they don't tear when using them. They are moist enough to clean effectively without leaving your child's skin wet. They clean up any sort of mess that your child can create. They are also great for household cleaning shifting stubborn marks and a dream at cleaning stainless steel.
This is a great product that is well worth the money. I would recommend these wipes heartily.
When it comes to baby wipes I like to think Ive found the best ones but unfortunately the No7 range of facial wipes are way to expensive for me to buy all the time or use daily so Im always looking around for offers as these wipes are something I use everyday. My mom picked me up a packet of these a few days ago from the 99p Store and she picked up a packet to use for what they were intended: wiping babys bums! She usually buys the Johnsons wipes because they are more sensitve and tend to work better but because of the 99p price tag I think these were her bargain of the day. Anyway I was hoping these would work really well because of how cheap they were and I was hoping they would be a good enough substitue for my No7 wipes but obviously they werent.
That night I came to wiping my make-up off and as Ive mentioned a million times in reviews now I do wear quite a bit of make-up so whatever brand of wipes Im using they do have to be pretty tough and unfortunately these just werent at all. As soon as I pulled a wipe out of the packet I noticed how dry it was, it barely had any wetness to it at all so I should have really guessed from that that these wipes werent going to work well at all.
I found that when I tried to wipe of my make-up with these it wasnt budging any slap at all. Even when I was proper scrubbing away at my eyes my make-up wasnt budging in the slightest. In fact it was just making it all smudged round my face and really sticky. These wipes left me with big red rings around my eyes and made my skin feel really dry and tight which did not feel nice at all. These did aboslutely nothing for me at all they didnt get rid of any make-up and it left my skin feeling and looking terrible so a big thumbs down for me. But obviously they arent designed for use on your face so I asked my mom if they worked well on bums.
They do not. They left my little brother with basically a sore bum and my mom found that she needed to use about 10 wipes to get the job done. That means that one packet would be used up in like 3 nappy changes which even though they are so cheap would make them very bad value for money. So they dont work very well on whatever part of the body you use them on and they dont shift anything! Make-up or poo!
These are just crap in every way and I really recommend that you DONT use them because they dont work at all on faces or bums. I think in this case you get what you pay for and dont buy them just because they are cheap because you will regret spending any amount of money on them, even if its only 99p.
The worst of the worst when it comes to baby wipes.
Per Packet: About 80 Wipes
Price: Around £3 When They Arent On Sale
Stockists: Supermarkets, Poundland & 99p Store.

In the last 21 months since Scarlet was born I have tried all the brands of Baby Wipes which are on the market at the moment and now generally buy what is on offer when I go shopping or depending on how much money I have. The wipes have never had an affect on her Eczema and we have never suffered Nappy Rash so I can use which ever ones are on offer.
The last time I was shopping in Tesco the Pampers Simply Clean were available at 3 for £3.00 so I picked up 3 packs. I always use Pampers Active Fit Nappies with her and know that Pampers are a really good make. When the Simply cheaper range came out I picked up a pack of the Nappies as well when they were on offer and found them not that bad to use. I have read some reviews on them that have been bad but I found them ok, not the best but ok. So I wasn't too worried about using the wipes, but how wrong could I have been.
The Simply Clean Wipes come in a pack of 72 which is white and orange in colour. The pack is generally the same size as all the other baby wipes I have tried and about the same depth which fits into Scarlet's change bag nicely. On the front of the pack is the sticky label that you can peel back to get the wipes out with the Pampers label on the left hand side and a picture of a baby on the right. The back of the pack is very basic and comes in several different languages so I gather they provide them in Europe as well.
The information that is supplied on the pack consists of the Ingredients list, that they are made in the EU, the address of Manufacturer and basically that the wipes are Soap Free, Alcohol Free and Dermatologic ally tested. As the colour of the wipes is so vibrant I guarantee you will not miss them in the Supermarket. I had seen them many times before I actually bought them.
As I peeled back the label there was no smell to the wipes at all which I like as strong smelling baby wipes make me feel quite queasy. But as I went to get a wipe out I found it hard to pull just the one that I needed. I seemed to pull about 10 out by mistake. I thought it was just me as I can be quite heavy handed but even when I took more care when I was changing Scarlet's nappy I found I still pulled out lots. I was quite annoyed as I thought we would be through the pack in about 4 changes so this wasn't value for money at all.
When using the wipes on Scarlet I found them so small compaired to the rest of the wipes on the market. This proved quite difficult when Changing Scarlet as one dirty nappy had me using the half the packet. I was in shock when I noticed how small each wipe was and I found they ripped so easy when trying to use them. This was not good on a dirty nappy as I ended up with my fingers in it, I was not amused at all. I gave up with trying to use them with Scarlet and decided to use them to remove my Make Up before washing my face before bed.
This is when I came across a smell with them. As I wiped the first one across my face I noticed a very strong smell of Plastic. Even after I had finished using the wipe the smell was so strong on my face that it made me feel sick. I am really unhappy with them to the stage that I have mentioned it to my friends and also emailed Pampers. I am however still awaiting a response.
Even on offer I wouldn't buy the wipes again and wouldn't recommend them to anyone.
I have always been a big fan of Pampers products and although their products can be a little more expensive than other brands in my experience Pampers always produce good quality products. They have a good reputation for a reason. I was therefore very surprised when I started noticing a new range they have brought out called 'Simply'. The nappies and baby wipes in bright orange packaging seem to be popping up everywhere. From the price of these new products it suggested to me that the Simply range is a 'value' range.
I have not got round to trying the nappies yet but I will because I am intrigued to see how good they are, especially as I have found the wipes are not so good. I bought a packet of Pampers Simply Clean Wipes a few weeks ago when shopping in Bodycare. At just a pound for 72 wipes I thought this was really cheap. Being a product from Pampers though I didn't expect them to be cheap in quality as they were.
Like most packets of baby wipes you open them with a sticky re-sealable opening. This remained re-sealable throughout the use of the whole packet and at no point did the wipes dry out, which has got to be a good quality. The baby wipes were also very easily dispensed, I think a common fault with baby wipes is that when you attempt to get just one wipe you end up pulling loads out. This did not happen with these wipes, when you wanted just one wipe that's all you got.
When you see the wipes I think it is obvious from appearance that these are not good quality wipes. They seem smaller than your average wipe but more importantly they seem very thin, almost as if you could put your finger straight through it. Another problem I found was that the wipes were not very moist which makes cleaning harder than it should be.
After using the whole pack of these wipes I'm affraid my first impressions were right. They are cheap, poor quality wipes. When cleaning my babies' bum I found myself using twice as many wipes as I would normally use. So there goes the advantage of saving money, if you're using twice as many wipes then you're saving nothing.
The packaging doesn't really give you any information, just that the wipes are soap free, alcohol free and dermatologically tested. It also describes the wipes as "super value".
I think in the current economic climate Pampers have been making an attempt to provide cheaper alternatives for its customers but unfortunately for me this does not work. I will be trying the nappies to see how these compare but for the moment I will be associating Pampers Simply with poor quality.
I first bought these wipes when they were on trial in Tesco costing about £1 for a packet, and thought, well give it a go there pretty cheap compared to pamper sensitive wipes and huggies wipes (which are more like £2.50 a pack). First thing I noticed is that the wipes are tiny, you think your getting value with 72 wipes but your not. The wipes are fine if your using them for mucky hands, faces or wiping up spills, but for soiled nappies they just don't cut it. There far to small and you end up using 2-3x as many wipes and twice as long, which is a nightmare with a 16 month year old who doesn't want to lye still for more than a minute. My partner has a bit more luck than me, but me being less gentle when doing a nappy I end up most times getting covered in it! Which I have to admit I don't find enjoyable :-)
These wipes are useful though when your on the go, just stick them in your changing bag to use after meals, or when a full size wipe is a bit of an overkill for the job. But this does mean ideally carrying another set of wipes for those messy nappies.
Overall I would say these wipes are good for cleaning up spills and cleaning mucky paws and faces but not much more. And even though these are cheaper than normal pampers wipes, there not good value and you would be much better off buying a cheap Tesco wipes for the job these wipes do.
I bought a pack of Pampers Simply Clean Wipes last week when I was out shopping in my local Iceland store. They cost £1.00 for a pack containing 72 wipes. I hadn't tried them before, and the bright orange packaging stood out on the shelf, though these seemed to be the only baby wipes that the shop had in stock at the time.
The wipes have a quite fresh scent, which is not unpleasant. I usually buy unscented wipes for my daughter, but these have been fine, and she has not had any adverse reactions with these ones, though her skin is not particularly sensitive, and she does not suffer with eczema. The front of the pack states that they are dermatologically tested. I noticed that some of the other reviews have said that these wipes are too small, and too thin. They are thinner than some others, eg. Huggies Pure (which I find break and tear easily) but they seem quite strong though, and they have coped very well with all nappy changes so far, as well as being used for wiping hands, face and general cleaning and mopping surfaces. I don't think that they are any worse than supermarket own brand wipes or the ones from Boots and the price is comparable to non-branded/budget wipes. Pampers more expensive wipes and Huggies usually cost around £2.49 per pack, so these are considerably cheaper, unless you use a lot of them.
I will buy these wipes again from time to time, as they are a decent price, and you get 72 wipes in a pack. They won't be my regular wipes (I buy a variety, mostly unscented, and own brand or on offer) but if I see them at this price again, and I need to buy some wipes, I will certainly get some more of them.
This product is an absolute joke. These wipes are cheap and very poor quality. Pampers say that they have made these products to be priced for the times but this is not a solution to a problem. I actually feel that I have been ripped off by pampers.
I do have to say that I love the smell of the wipes though, i think that they smell far better than any of the other wipes in the pampers range but one still has to wonder what is in them to make them smell like that, and whether your baby is more likely to have a reaction to them.
These wipes are tiny, when they say 72 wipes what they have done is used a much smaller area of tissue so you actually end up having to use more which really is not economical in the slightest. Pampers will have to do better than this
