Any good habit starts with personal measures. With ‘Cleanliness drive’ gaining traction all over India, ‘Personal hygiene’ also comes to the fore. Tiny measures to keep yourself clean will help you to keep diseases’ at bay and go a long way in ensuring that you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Good personal hygiene habits go beyond smelling nice and looking clean; proper hygiene also prevents the spread of germs that lead to bacterial skin infections.
~ Why You Can’t Overlook the Importance of Personal Hygiene
Since the last 5 years, Dettol Hand-wash has been a permanent feature in my house. So, I was more than happy to try out a new product from Dettol – a trusted brand and a name that is synonymous with cleanliness and hygiene.
What I liked about Dettol Multi-Use wipes:
1. Gentle on skin
Use of the wipe on your face leaves you fresh and rejuvenated, quite similar to how you feel after using a freshener tissue on a flight. The wipe doubles up as a cleanser and moisturizer, as the emollients present hydrate and add to the suppleness of your skin. The wipes are pH neutral and ensure that they do not interfere with the natural protection of your skin. So you would not really have to bother about rashes or unwanted skin issues, as long as you are not using the wipe on damaged or irritated skin or bringing it in direct contact with your eyes.
2. Dettol Multi-Use wipes are alcohol free
Almost all sanitizers contain alcohol, which though effective at destroying germs, make the sanitizers unfit for use on face. The wipes, on the other hand, are perfectly usable on face and instantly help your skin get rid of all the pesky dirt and germs in the pores! Being alcohol free, these are extremely gentle yet effective, which makes this product absolutely usable on babies and children.
3. Easy to carry and use
The wipes come in a small pack of thirty that fits easily into any small handbag, making little or no difference to the weight. The flap on top of the pack allows you to pull out a wipe and close it back so that other wipes do not dry after the pack is opened. Plus with the added advantage of not having to carry a number of other skin care products makes it an ideal life hack!
Always a good idea for office and college goers to carry them regularly while navigating through the pollution filled streets, so that you can quickly freshen up and clean your face, hands and neck whenever you need to.
4. Multi Use
The product lives up to its tag of being ‘multi-purpose’. I found it easy to use the wipes for cleaning the crisper, chiller tray, shelves in the refrigerator, glass tops and the oven. For new mothers, nothing is more important than their baby’s health. These wipes come in handy for cleaning children’s toys and chairs or your own worktop surface.
5. Trusted brand
Dettol has been a leading brand in the personal hygiene industry for decades and has gained the trust of most households with their superior quality products and affordable pricing. It is not likely to disappoint its users or give you any chance for complaints.
What I felt could have been better:
1. Separate packaging for separate uses
Though the wipes are multi–use and can be effectively used on the face as well as on the refrigerator, but I would personally find it more comforting to use a separate wipe for the face than the one I use to clean my kitchen equipment. Well, this is not to say that the kitchen should not be kept clean and hygienic, but yet am sure most ladies would want a separate treatment for their pretty face 😉 than they would want for their refrigerator shelves or oven. The kiddies toys could be an exception though!
Though technically the product could be the same, perhaps separate packaging for the face wipes and the kitchen wipes would have addressed this aspect.
2. Separate pricing
Money is usually always on top of the list of ‘Things that every Indian is concerned about’. Priced at Rs 115 for a pack of 30 wipes (15cm x20 cm), the wipes are somewhat expensive to be used as kitchen wipes, though may not be expensive for use on face, neck and hands or even on children’s toys and chairs.
My Take on Dettol Multi-Use Wipes
Overall I would certainly recommend the use of Dettol Multi-Use wipes. I would definitely like to keep a pack in my purse while travelling so that I always turn up with :
Clean and Fresh face and hands and Proper hygiene wherever, whenever.
