I received news of the QwikShower Wipes near the end of Sammi’s soccer season. I was immediately drawn to their possibilities from the first line of the press release: “With today’s active kids more time-pressed than ever, showering after gym class, sports or other physical activity has gone by the wayside.” Since Sammi’s soccer practices ended at her bedtime, it seemed like there was rarely time for her to bathe before bed if there was any hope of getting enough sleep to be pleasant the next day.
I anticipated using the wipes to clean up after practice, to wash Elli’s feet after wearing her sandals all day, to wipe down faces and hands after sticky snacks and meals on-the-go and for Brent after his intermural football/basketball/soccer/volleyball games. The possibilities are endless.
Upon using the wipes, we decided right away that they aren’t good for faces. Since the purpose of the wipe is to clean and remove odor-causing sweat and dirt, they leave an alcohol-flavor that I could taste after kissing Elli’s cheek. Other than that, the wipes were soft and cleaned well.
You can purchase QwikShower Wipes online at www.QwikShower.com – 1 for $1, 10 for $7, 50 for $29 and 100 for $49. They also offer free shipping and fundraising opportunities for organizations.
