Wipes for babies
Baby wipes are wet wipes used to clean infants' sensitive skin. These are soaked in everything from gentle cleansing ingredients to alcohol-based "cleaners." Baby wipes typically come in a variety of pack sizes (up to 80 or more sheets per pack) and with dispensing mechanisms. Baby wipes are thought to have originated in the mid-1950s, when more people were travelling and needed a way to clean up on the go. Nice-Pak was one of the first companies to manufacture these. They created napkin-sized paper cloths soaked in scented skin cleanser. Sheboygan's Rockline Industries
