Peri care wipes, or incontinence wipes for adults, allow seniors and those with low muscle tone or disabilities to maintain hygiene and healthy skin.
Incontinence wipes cleanse integument gently and effectively. They prevent the skin from getting overly dry, and, simultaneously, dry off skin to prevent infection from perpetual contact with unclean liquids.
Incontinence or peri care wipes are available in several sizes and materials, and with various distinct features. Here are just a few of the factors to keep in mind when choosing incontinence wipes, whether for yourself, a patient or a loved one.
Wet Incontinence Wipes
Wet incontinence wipes are ideal for delicate skin. They are inordinately gentle and wonderfully skin friendly. When dealing with sensitive skin,pre-moisturizes perineal cleansing wipes are an excellent option. Clean integument quickly yet effectively with rinse-free wet incontinence wipes designed for just that purpose!
Dry Incontinence Wipes
Dry incontinence wipes can be a bit tougher than wet ones, but they clean the skin really well. Since they contain no solution, they are less likely to trigger an allergic reaction. The user or caregiver can create an original, homemade solution, or one can use tap water to wet these wipes. Of course, they can also be used sans liquid, as well; hence the term dry wipes.
Hypo-Allergenic Peri Care Wipes
Peri care wipes can be hypoallergenic. This enables them to be used by those who are prone to skin rashes or allergies. Keep in mind that the term hypoallergenic merely denotes that these wipes consist of less substances that are likely to cause an allergic reaction. Even hypoallergenic wipes may contain substances the user is allergic too, and therefore, if the user is prone to allergies, it is imperative to check the ingredients of the peri care wipes before use.
Adult Incontinence Washcloths
Washcloths are often stronger than wipes. If you’re looking for an ultra-durable, strong wipe, an incontinence washcloth may meet your expectations.
Size of Incontinence Wipes
For total incontinence, it’s always best to go with a big size wipe, since you want perineal cleansing wipes that cover the area as much as possible, and keep your hands clean. AvaCare Medical offers large medical wipes for non-messy cleanup. When it comes to mild or urge incontinence, smaller wipes can do the job as well. The size of wipes is more of a personal preference, depending on what you like best.
Strength of the Incontinence Wipes
When choosing incontinence wipes, bear in mind the volume this wipe will be cleaning. For a less large amount of waste, a typical incontinence wipe, such as the standard spun bond ones, should suffice, but for larger amounts of waste, use wipes comprised of a thicker woven material.
Scented vs. Unscented
Many people enjoy wipes that provide a pleasant fragrance which wipes away any uncomfortable odors and replaces them with a more pleasing scent. However, some individuals prefer unscented wipes, since they dislike the scents available. Some people find that scented wipes irritate their skin, and therefore, they also stick to unscented wipes.
Textured Peri Care Wipes
Wipes with a quilted texture clean more thoroughly and efficiently. For this reason, these wipes are ideal for incontinence. Smooth wipes move the mess around more, and don’t clean it as quickly, while the design of the quilted wipes easily entraps the dirt in its many crannies and crevices.
