– “Wet Wipes: Biggest Stealth Health Threat of 2015”
“The demand for wet wipes began in the early 1970s when the industry expanded the single-packed, alcohol-soaked wet towelette product your mom or grandma may have carried in her purse in the ‘50s and ‘60s, into a line of wet wipes for baby’s bottoms (patented in 1972 with the brand name (‘Wet Ones’).
Demand for these disposable towels increased in the 1990s when they were promoted for adult hygiene, dusting, make-up removal and more.
With an infusion of aloe and fragrance, some people have made a complete switch from toilet paper to wet wipes. Wipes sold for cleaning your nether region are often advertised as biodegradable and flushable, making them all the more convenient to use on the toilet.
