Wet wipes have expired, it is best not to use
When buying wet tissue paper, pay attention to the production date and expiration date of the product or the production batch number and limited use date.
Do not buy or use wipes that are beyond the expiration date or that do not have an expiration date marked.
At the same time, wet wipes cannot be reused.
1. The cleaning effect is halved
All wipes have a cleaning effect. The ingredients of the cleaning wipes are distilled water or purified water, together with disinfectant, essence, aloe vera gel, vitamin E, glycerin, malic acid and other ingredients, which can keep the skin clean while cleaning. Humidity plays a role in moisturizing and skin care, but if the wet wipes expire, the liquid moisture they invade will be lost, the efficacy of disinfectant and other ingredients will be reduced, and the cleaning effect will be directly halved, or even the skin care effect will disappear completely.
2. Increases skin bacteria
The reason why wet wipes have a shelf life is mainly to consider the time for the growth of germs. When each package of wet wipes leaves the factory, they are put into a sealed bag, and in order to prevent the growth of bacteria, a fungicide is added to prevent the growth of bacteria. After the expiration date, the effect of the bactericide gradually weakens or even disappears, and the humid environment in the wet wipes is just conducive to the growth and reproduction of bacteria. In this way, using expired wipes is equivalent to adding bacteria to the skin.
What can I do with expired wipes?
Of course, expired wipes are not completely unusable, as long as they do not touch human skin and do not cause harm to human health, we can use expired wipes to wipe tables, stools, shoes and dust, and the effect will be better than rags , so that it will not be wasted.
