Adult wipes and washcloths help patients and caregivers develop a consistent, convenient routine to keep clean. Wipes and washcloths help keep patients feeling fresh, while protecting a caregiver’s hands from the mess.
Staying clean, dry and refreshed can go a long way toward helping older adults feel better. Incontinence products, such as adult wipes and washcloths, streamline the cleaning process for both patients and caregivers.
Incontinence products that help maintain cleanliness range from traditional sanitary towels to wipes designed to deliver barrier cream. Among the most popular products:
Adult Wipes: Double the size of traditional wipes, adult wipes allow for easy cleanup. The quilted designs are especially durable, so they’re an ideal option for cleaning up after bowel incontinence.
Barrier Wipes: These specially designed wipes contain a barrier cream to help protect fragile skin from breaking down. They leave a layer of protective cream between the skin and an adult diaper or pull-up underwear.
Flushable Wipes: You can safely flush these wipes down the toilet after cleanup. Adults who can go to the bathroom without assistance may find flushable wipes make cleanup more comfortable after a bowel movement.
Sanitary Wipes: These handy wipes allow you to clean your hands quickly and seamlessly.
Bathing Gloves: Bathing gloves offer a simple solution for caregivers to wipe down adults who aren’t able to bathe themselves. The gloves are soft and smooth to the touch, they feel great on the skin and they help create a fresh, clean feeling. You can even warm them up in the microwave for added comfort.
