In decades past, wet wipes were the savior of moms and dads doing diaper changing duty, mainly because they work so well. Recently, however, wet wipes have been made for a wide variety of specialized uses, including pet grooming.
Unsurprisingly, not all pet grooming wipes are created equal. Let’s take a look at some factors that can help you choose grooming wipes that will make your job as a pet owner easier and, consequently, more enjoyable.
Plant-based pet wipes are not only easy on your hands and pet, but also compostable after use. Whether you intend to use wipes for all-over bathing, wiping after bathroom breaks or cleaning paws after a trip to the yard, those with high-quality packaging will stay fresh and damp longer, saving you time and money in the long run.
Controlling scent is one of the main reasons for bathing dogs, especially those that live inside the house. But it’s no secret some dogs hate water and are nearly impossible to bathe. Fortunately, many of those same dogs will stand still for a little lovin’—wiping them down with grooming wipes will get the job done with less mess and fuss. Pet wipes are available in a variety of different fragrances, so find your favorite and enjoy a fresher smelling home.
Good pet grooming wipes are quite easy to use and are made to safely remove dirt, dander and odor. Some pet groom wipes are made for use only on dogs, so if you are shopping for wipes for a cat or other pet, read product descriptions carefully. Note that wipes with alcohol aren’t as good as alcohol-free wipes since the alcohol can dry out your dog’s skin and make him have an itchy, flakey coat.
