The Dangers Of Baby Wipes


The Dangers Of Baby Wipes

Baby Wipes and other Wipes have been in the news recently because they block the sanitary system when they are disposed of  in the toilet.  Now there is concern because these Baby Wipes contain Chemicals which can cause rashes.


 Would you be surprised to learn that baby wipes are a relatively new product? American inventor, Arthur Julius, who later trademarked the term “Wet-Nap” in 1958, developed the original concept in the late 1950s (1).

Even then, these moistened “towelettes” were initially intended for use as hand-cleaning products. They were unveiled at the 1960 National Restaurant Show in Chicago, after which they were retailed to restaurants in 1963 (2).
