If you listen to our podcast, watch our YouTube channel, or just in general follow any of our shenanigans, then you are aware that I (Carrie) just had a baby. This gave me the perfect opportunity to review the WaterPura chemical-free wipes I was sent for free for review purposes.
At First Glance
For those of you who may know me, you know that I’m pretty wary of chemicals. I clean my house mostly with vinegar and try to only eat grass-fed meats when I do eat meat. So when I heard that these wipes were completely chemical-free, I was pretty much already sold. Instead of chemicals, they are made of 99.9% water and a touch of citrus. I was, however, wary as to how well they were going to work. I received them a couple weeks before I gave birth, and decided to hold on to them until I could really give them a good test… the first poop.
Anyone who has had a baby knows that first poop is a sticky, tar-like mess. It isn’t very easy to get wiped off, which is awful considering how sensitive newborn skin is. However, I was extremely pleasantly surprised to see that the WaterPura wipes tackled that first poop like a champ. It wiped clean off without having to scrub or use more than two wipes. Let me tell you, this was no small feat considering just the massive size of my daughter’s first deuce. The WaterPura wipes did not at all let me down.
Over the next few days I was seriously stunned at how well they worked against not only diaper messes, but also on sticky spit up. The wipes being chemical-free eased my mind a bit since I was wiping her face with them. I’ve always felt wary about wiping infant faces with normal wipes. Also, since they are mostly water, they are extremely gentle on the skin. All three of my other daughters ended up at some point with a diaper rash so bad I would have to forgo wipes for a while. WaterPura wipes shouldn’t give me this issue, since they are 99.9% water.
WaterPura wipes are seriously hands down the best wipes I have ever tried. They work better than normal wipes, and I don’t have to worry about wiping down my newborn with chemicals. I can’t recommend them enough.
