Being confined to a wheelchair for several weeks and unable to shower or bathe, I found these to be the next best thing. Very similar to the ones used in hospitals, they can be warmed in the microwave if you wish. They leave my skin feeling totally clean and soft, with no sticky residue. I'll continue to use these wipes in the summer months to remove suntan lotion and insect repellent after being outdoors. Love this product - don't ever stop selling it!!
