Frequently Asked Questions:
Yes of course. Our wipes are developed for skin but they can be used on kit without harming it or leaving any residue. Ideally they should be used before the event as some kit manufacturers state that make up / moisturisers can degrade kit.
Baby wipes are primarily composed of mild cleansing lotions that are tested for their sensitivity on delicate skin. De-Wipe decontamination wipes are engineered to eliminate the carcinogenic toxins you can’t see.
Ask yourself: are the cancerous hydrocarbons and chlorinated dioxins produced from burning plastic an everyday pollutant? A wipe that is specifically formulated to deal with these pollutants is required.
Our scientific study conducted with leading toxicology professors at Manchester Metropolitan University found that De-Wipe removes a significant 70% more cancer-inducing pollutants than baby wipes. Read more about why you should Wipe It Off and not Take it Home with De-Wipe instead of baby wipes.

Andy Clifford Watch Manager & Operational Risk Management at South Wales Fire & Rescue Service Headquarters has this to say:
“We decided to purchase DeWipe following evaluations and trials and found the product provided good removal of varied contaminates and were of different sizes which met our requirements.
Pricing was very competitive and the product was available in the quantities we required.
It was important to have a supplier that was trusted and could provide stock when required.
To meet our requirements our Doctor in Occupational Health along with our Health Safety department required evidential documentation to comply with certain elements which were readily available.”
Ruth Baller-Wilson Watch Manager at Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service has this glowing report:
“MFRS have been using De-wipe for a number of months now and feedback is positive. With increasing knowledge of firefighter safety regarding contaminants, it is vital that firefighters are able to sufficiently remove the products of combustion at their earliest opportunity.
The De-Wipe is perfect for this task; large, moist, and strong. 1 wipe is generally sufficient to clean face, neck and hands.
They don’t leave any residue behind and have a fresh scent.”
Simon Woodward Head of Emergency Services & Airfield Security at Manchester Airport Fire Service decided to use De-Wipe as safeguarding his crew was an urgent priority:
“As a responsible employer dedicated to ensuring Firefighter safety, Manchester Airport Rescue & Firefighting Service sourced and procured De-wipe to support the ongoing safety of our personnel.
The product has been used during training and real incidents and has proven excellent in removing contaminants and especially the high risk skin areas potentially exposed to harmful substances.
The wipes come in different sizes and quantities which gives us flexibility for storage and use, the delivery and explanation of design was excellent, they clean really well and leave a fresh scent after use.”
Chris Ball Head of Governance and Asset Management Bedfordshire Fire & Rescue Service reduces the risk with De-Wipe:
“We decided to purchase De-Wipe following evaluations and trials and found the wipe provided excellent removal of pollutants.
Knowing that this is the only company in the UK with scientific results also gave us confidence to purchase. The 100% biodegradability keeps us as a service cleaner and greener!
As a service, we opted for the X-Large wipe as following trials, we decided that you can wipe down the risk with just one wipe.”
