Biodegradable Scent Free Wipes

Biodegradable Scent Free Wipes

Hand Sanitizers are used to frequently with children. Everyone is afraid of germs and feel that they need to wipe and clean everything. I can relate. I don’t my child catching a nasty flu bug and being sick for a week. There are times when you are out an about and you need to wash your hands and there is no soap and water. These times might call for alternatives and in my article about triclosan and hand soap I point to many alternatives for staying healthy.

Another option that I’ve discovered is Wysi™Wipe. Biodegradable, scent-free and made of 100% pulp fiber. These little white tablets are easy to store in my purse, diaper bag, car and coat pocket. With my reusable bottle of water, which is always handy, I just pour a little water on the tablet and I have a wipe. It’s that simple.  When we go to a restaurant and the children are messy after dinner I pull out my Wysi™ Wipe and dip it in the left over water from dinner. The kids can be wiped up in seconds and without nasty harmful chemicals. Afterward I don’t feel bad about this cloth taking up precious landfill space because it’s biodegradable. Could there be anything better?

Watch me wipe my messy daughter up in seconds with just a tiny bit of water. I’m so excited about these great Wysi™ Wipes I’m giving away two bags of 500! The Giveaway has ended and the following winners were drawn and notified:

    this looks great for thoselittle messes out, and for trips

  • Carol

    I could use these all right! I like to keep a stash of wipes in the car and in just about every room, and in my little one’s diaper bag.

  • These sound really fabulous! This weekend I was thinking, I wish I had something in my car to wipe up my hands after grocery shopping but didn’t contain alcohol or have to go in the trash.” These wipes would be perfect! This is a great solution to the battle between being afraid of all of the little germs on my hands from my daily outings but unwilling to buy the hand sanitizer because I don’t want mega-germs running around either!

  • I would love these and so would my SO. I would use them for the car for quick clean ups and take them with me to restaurants… i am a germaphobe and I would love to be able to wipe the table down a little bit better…..and of course when I take my nieces and nephews, this would make life simpler and I wouldn’t have to use their parents nasty wipes!

  • Christine

    3 kids under 5, I think they’d get plenty of use. I love how compact they are. I could throw a few in my purse and diaper bag.

  • erin

    Thanks so much for posting about these. I’ve been using a version that I suspect is NOT biodegradable on and off for a couple of years even though we aren’t expecting our first for another six weeks. I’ve used these when running errands when you get that USO (unidentified sticky object) on your hand and camping but I’ve wondered how well they break down. I’ve found them in Asian supermarkets so I’m not 100% sure what the fiber content is.

    These sound like a great replacement and I suspect USOs on my hands are only going to become more common when the baby arrives and I assume that they’ll be useful for our daughter as well!

  • Katie

    This is a timely post for me, as I have been using the wet wipes on my two wee ones when we are out and about–and just yesterday I began wondering what the heck was in these things I was cleaning my children with!

    These would be very helpful (I know I’m not the first to say so) and easy to chuck into the glove compartment, the diaper bag, my purse, etc…

  • :inda White

    Anything good for the environment and us is GOOD! I would use them daily!

  • Ken

    This would be great for work. I count cash all day long. Believe me , money is filthy.

  • Scott

    Can use these to clean up after the cats.

  • Renee

    I’ve got a toddler and a preschooler . Seems like once I get one cleaned up the other is into something. Would be great to keep a stash of these Wysi Wipes in the glove compartment & some in my bag!


    I have 3 boys and I have to constantly wash their hands. This would be a great help.

  • Gina Stratos

    With three kids, I could certainly use these everywhere. Great for the car, the playground, the market …… the list goes on.

  • lisa

    count me in. I’m trying to avoid germs and chemicals, which seems harder and harder to do with a 17 month old.

  • I could use these because I have kids! It’s that simple. 🙂
    We’re expecting our fourth in a couple months and one can never be too careful with germs.

    Elizabeths last blog post..Your baby is as big as a huh?

  • Anne

    These Wysi™Wipe are, I think, one of the best green products I’ve come across.

    I would love to have these for when my grandchildren are around and they attack me with their dirty sticky fingers lol

    I would also use them for myself as I sometimes need to wipe my hands but find products on the market too harsh on my skin!


  • joni chadwell

    wish these were aroud when I was raising my son…oh well, they’ll work on the grandkids

  • audra

    I’ve got 3 babies 3 1/2 & under… I try to avoid all the chemicals so even my 6 month old gets his hands washed w/ soap & water regularly… I would love this alternative to dragging all my babies to the germ-filled loos!

  • Megan

    I’m crazy about wiping things down….shopping carts, computer keyboard & mouse, phone. I look forward to using them in my diaper bag for my new baby and his dirty surroundings!

  • Angie L

    I have a two year old. Do I really need to say anymore?

  • Beverley

    I could use these because I have 11 grandchildren!

  • I should get these for our upcoming family vacation! I’m already nervous about how clean the plane and trains will be, especially because my 9 month old won’t have gotten all his vaccines yet… I need these, looks like they would be easy to pack too!

    Rebeccas last blog post..Updates

  • Linda

    I just subscribed.

  • wait… I’m confused are they scent free because there is no cleaning agent on them at all? I guess they work on the principal that friction kills more germs than soap?

    Rebeccas last blog post..Updates

  • Carol Harrity

    My husband had two major surgeries last year and my big fear is that he will get sick again from some germ I faliled to clear away. Also our dog licks everything, which presents another problem. These wipes sound like just the solution I am looking for.

  • Jim

    Good Lord, who couldn’t use these? They’d be great for the car! Gimmee!

  • Autumn H.

    My child is always covered in something sticky, these would be wonderful!

    autumn398 (at)

  • Teresa C

    I would definitely carry these in my purse because I have two kids, who are getting older, but still need to be cleaned up after. Neat.

  • Bobv

    These would be great when the grandkids are visiting.

  • Christie

    I could really use these because I already carry around a little ziploc bag of baby wipes in my purse for all of us to use. These would take so much less space.

  • Christina G.

    I could use them because I’m always cleaning up cat messes around my apartment. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Stephanie Bruce

    These would be fantastic for our boys, they prefer wipes to tp all the time thanks so much

  • Jodi

    I’ve never heard of these! I could use them because I have three young kids, and they can’t eat ANYTHING without getting it all over their hands/faces. Great for when we’re out and about.

  • Frank

    In the car for traveling, in the home when the grand kids are around, anywhere because you don’t know where may need it.

  • galena penrod

    this sounds perfect for me for the wipes are easily stored and used and biogradable too

    i have my 3 grandkids a lot and they can get messy.

  • sarah

  • willowsprite

    Hey, those are great! They would be handy going grocery shopping and wiping down the handle of the cart. Ick, I hate those things. I’m just glad my son is older now and dosen’t chew on them.

  • Evelyn

    They really promote cleanliness and being green

  • Veronica L.

    With having three kids under the age of 4, it can get real messy in our house in to time flat. I could definitely see myself using these in my diaper bag and just around the house! Thanks for a great giveaway 🙂

  • Kate

    These would be so great for my kids. A 3 year old and a 1 year old can get SO messy but I worry about the chemicals in some wipes. These sound perfect.

  • Dan Mihaliak

    Would be great for the kids.

  • Rachel Newman

    My skin is super sensitive, and I work around kids all the time. They would be good for me and them.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Viki S

    I think they’d be great to keep in the car for messes (mine and my son’s). Also it would be nice to take them camping, much lighter and smaller to carry. The scouts would love em!

  • Karen Gonyea

    This would be awesome for us – my 3 year old thinks he’s a master chef and when we aren’t paying attention he’ll go into the fridge and pull out a bunch of stuff and mix it up in one bowl 🙂

  • DeeAnn S

    This is a terrific idea! I’ve not heard of these before but would love to give them a try. I’d probably keep some in the car and definately in my purse for quick cleanups. Thanks.

  • ky2here

    Assuage my guilt~

  • amy tucker

    I need this for my car, office, home — every room and my son’s locker at school!

  • Debbie Criss

    I love that they are enviroment safe and the packing with you. I usually don’t dry on paper towells or a hand drier. I hate using up paper towells, and hate blowing germs around. I shake and rub my hands dry. We do alot of camping and fishing. I never feel like my hands are quite clean until I get home. These sound really great and would love to try. Please enter me, thank you

  • michelle robbins

    I teach special needs students. These would be so convenient to take on our trips, or just around school even.

  • sandi smith

    My yard people have 6 small children and I would donate these to them to help their children fend off nasty bugs.

  • jolene

    great for messy kids and still not killing the environment

  • First of all, your little girl is adorable! I love her “Hmmmm”…too cute!

    I am a germ freak, and I would love to have these to take with me wherever I go. I am constantly washing my hands, and using hand sanitizer (which still doesn’t make my hands feel clean!).

    JenniferRs last blog post..1-18 CONTESTS AROUND THE BLOGOSPHERE

    on top of the usual reasons, we would use these like crazy when we travel, which is ALL THE TIME.

  • What a great giveaway Sommer! With 2 kids my list of uses would be long. The one thing that comes to mind is when we are on a road trip and we stop for a stretch/play break then get back in the car and the kids want to eat something… or if we stop at a rest stop. I never let the kids wash their hands their (I use to test rest stop water). Just having some of these in the car would be very handy!

  • joanna smith

    How fun, I have never used “Twit This” before, but I did for your giveaway and here is the link to my Tweet:

    thank you for allowing me to learn something new today!

  • Angie P

    These are cool!! I’d keep some in my glove compartment and my purse. When we are out shopping or running errands, the kids inevitably get hungry for a snack. These are great to clean off the germs before they eat.

  • Barbara J

    What a great produce! You could take these on an airplane with no worries. I have carried pre-moistened wipes with me in the past but sometimes they get dried out before the entire package is used. Thanks for alerting me to these…as well as thanks for the giveaway.

    I have two young children and they are always getting messy. This would be a quick clean up and I wouldn’t feel bad about throwing them away.

  • Jennifer M

    We travel around the city via bus and subway all day, grabbing snacks on the go–these would be great to have in my bag.

  • J Chaborek

    I’d use them around the house & when we go out & about. We usually always take public transit or walk, since it’s more earth friendly & have been using wipes that are non biodegradable to wipe our hands before eating while we are out. Would love to try out the biodegradable wipes! I just found out about the biodegradable “dog pick up bags” & I think it’s a fantastic idea. I had just told my boyfriend a week or two before finding out that they should make them. I was sick of using plastic bags that would end up in the trash.. & I wasn’t going to pick it up by hand, but I suppose, if there wasn’t biodegradable doggie bags, then I could pick it up by hand & then use the biodegradable wipes! Thanks for a great giveaway!

  • If you’ve ever had a bottle of hand sanitizer leak into your purse, or had a package of wet-wipes start stinking in the back of your car, you’ll appreciate these little tablets. They sound amazing! I’d love to keep some at the office, in my purse, and in the car.

  • Renee We

    Although I don’t allow eating in the car I still need emergency wipes while we travel.

  • Suanne Giddings

    Be clean – get rid of germs… Don’t use chemicals! You hear it everywhere! I am so glad there is a safe product that are so easy to use. By the time you get to the last of the wet wipes, they are pretty dry anyways. These would be so easy to stash away wherever you need them. I think I am in love! Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this giveaway!

  • Charlene Kuser

    I would use the Wysi wipes to clean handles on grocery carts,clean
    seat of restroom toliets,on hands,doorknobs,any thing that can be a germ
    magnet.These would be so helpful.Please enter me and thanks for
    the giveaway

    Long story short….the whole way home I had everyone esle pee on my hinny.

  • Jenna

    Being a germ freak causes me to need things that are not necessarily good for my children or environment. I’ve been seeking things that will help without satisfaction. Thank you for posting this product! I can’t wait to get my hands on it, literally. 😉
