Wet Ones, known for its antibacterial hand wipes, recently launched its first ever liquid gel hand sanitizer, as well as Wet Ones Plus Alcohol Hand Sanitizing Wipes. While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises us to wash our hands with soap and water whenever possible, hand sanitizer products can be used as an alternative when soap and water are not available.

The CDC recommends we use hand sanitizer products containing at least 60 percent ethyl alcohol, a bar both Wet Ones’ products meet. The brand’s hand sanitizer contains 69 percent ethyl alcohol and its new wipes contain 70 percent ethyl alcohol.

Wet Ones Hand Sanitizer

In addition to ethyl alcohol, Wet Ones Hand Sanitizer is made with aloe, vitamin E and pro-vitamin B5, ingredients that moisturize hands. The hand sanitizer was created with a fast-drying formula so your hands feel soft after use, leaving no sticky residue. It also has the same Fresh Scent as Wet Ones Antibacterial Hand Wipes. The hand sanitizer is available in 2 ounce, 8 ounce and 16 ounce containers.

Wet Ones Plus Alcohol Hand Sanitizing Wipes

These hand sanitizing wipes are available in 50-count canisters and 20-count travel packs. The brand says they’re TSA-approved, so you can take them with you on flights. Like Wet Ones’ hand sanitizer, these wipes are made with vitamin E and aloe in addition to ethyl alcohol.
