Frequently Asked Questions
[Q] WaterWipes occasionally come out in clumps. Why?
[A] Previously our wipes dispensed in the same way but WaterWipes don’t contain soaps or chemical lubricants to help with the dispensing of the wipes from the pack, WaterWipes could come out of the pack in clumps occasionally. To solve this, we changed our wipes to non-interfolded. The start of each wipe still lies in the center each time and should be easy to locate.
