Cleaning wipes make it easy to give any type of surface a quick clean without having to use a spray bottle or other cleaning agent. These all-purpose wipes come pre-saturated in cleaning solution, so you can clean up any spill or mess without getting your hands dirty. They’re also super portable and some come in smaller packaging so you can take them anywhere with you.
Unfortunately, most of the cleaning wipes on the market are from brands that do test on animals like Lysol, Clorox, Green Works, and Vim.
Thankfully there are now a handful of cruelty-free cleaning wipes available so that you can clean peacefully knowing no animals were harmed in order for you to have a spotless and clean home!
(!) Just an ethical note, these cleaning wipes are disposable and generally used once and then discarded. With that being said, they’re not the most eco-friendly cleaning option, so I would recommend opting for reusable cleaning cloths and/or using them sparingly to cut down on waste.
