7 Intimate Cleansing Wipes For When There's Absolutely No Time For a Shower

Victoria Moorhouse

Sometimes toilet paper just doesn't cut it and the possibility of a proper shower is hours away - that's when intimate cleansing wipes come to the rescue with a quick refresh.

These moistened wipes are typically used to give the vulva area (not inside the vagina!) a gentle, on-the-go cleanse and can be particularly helpful during your period or after a workout, when things can feel a little sweaty and messy down there.

Many intimate wipes on the market are specifically formulated with sensitive skin in mind, but they don't work for everyone. Even products advertised as being gentle and unscented could still include ingredients that are irritating for some. So, before adding a new product to your personal-care routine, you should read over the product's ingredient label carefully and consider checking in with your doctor.

Your vulva doesn't necessarily need the help of these wipes in the grand scheme of things either - sometimes warm water will do the trick.

If you are interested in trying out cleansing wipes, consider the seven options below. Bonus: most of these wipes can be used on other parts of the body that might need a quick cleanse, like your hands, feet, armpits, and more.
