FreshWipes are extra large, biodegradable, antibacterial wipes that can be used to cleanse your body to keep you fresh and clean on the days you cannot shower or bathe.

Previously known as SwetWipes, following a consultation period, they changed the name of the coconut-scented body wipes to FreshWipes. It certainly has a cleaner, fresher ring to it that explains more easily exactly what they do: freshen you up.

Each wipe is 30 x 20cm and is produced to be large, wet, and thick enough to be used on the whole body, removing odour and leaving the user feeling fresh and clean.

Launched in 2020, FreshWipes were originally conceived as a convenient and high-quality body wipe solution for busy sporting types to use whenever a shower wasn’t available or possible.

However, during the first lockdown, lots of customers were introduced to FreshWipes because antibacterial wipes were in short supply. Soon they were being used in facilities such as care homes and by disabled and elderly people unable to shower.  Many customers told the company that they were unable to use their baths or showers at home because they were scared of slipping or falling.  Tabitha Fung, a UK wheelchair tennis player, called the wipes “an absolute godsend” for anyone struggling to shower.

Liz Barnes, Managing Director of SwetWipes Ltd, said: “We have been overwhelmed by the support of our customers during our first year and humbled by the many hundreds of emails we have received telling us how FreshWipes have changed their lives for the better, enabling them to get a sense of independence and dignity back.”

A pack of 12 FreshWipes costs just £4.99, including free delivery. They are available at www.FreshWipes.co.uk.
