As international salespeople and marketers we often travel overseas. Anyone who has traveled to a developing country knows the challenge is finding clean water not just for drinking but for washing dishes, silverware and even plates.
On a trip to India, the "home" of traveler's diarrhea, I suffered awfully debilitating battle with something which kept me in bed for almost two days. It was then that I thought, "there has to be a better way."
We wanted to develop a product which would help minimize the risk of catching illnesses and keeping things clean. We certainly are not "hand sanitizer addicts" who believe all germs are bad, but we do believe in proper precautions, especially when the risk is higher. That includes out-door activities, overseas travel and locations with higher levels of germs/bacteria or questionable health practices.
We hope you enjoy our wipes and wish you safe travels!
What are Utensil Wipes / Pacifier Wipes
All natural wipes that should be used to clean surfaces that comes in contact with your mouth.
How are they different than other Wipes?
Many wipes on the market use alcohol, which have an unpleasant taste or stringent chemicals, and are not intended to come in contact with your mouth.
Are they safe?
Yes. Obviously you should not intentionally ingest the liquid, the wipes or bags. But Pacifier and Utensil wipes are non-toxic, and when used properly help keep food contact items clean. The liquid is safe for human consumption after it dries on the surface. If you should ingest the liquid, drink milk and contact the hospital immediately. The active ingredient in Utensil Wipes is 4% food grade lemongrass oil.
How do we know they work?
All wipes work. At something. Many of them disinfect. Utensil wipes was specially formulated to help you clean items which come in contact with your mouth. Using all natural essential oil has been proven to disinfect and kill germs/bacteria (according to studies conducted by the NIH and the Oxford Journals of Medicine), Utensil Wipes is currently the only wipe on the market formulated with this active ingredient. Visit our Safety & Testing page for more information. Pacifier wipes goes one step further, by neutralizing the lemongrass oil smell and taste to help babies and toddlers, who may be more sensitive to this smell.
Do we use them?
Yes. And our family(ies) does. We know we can't prevent all illness, but safe is better than sorry.
How do we use them?
Instructions are on the package, but pull out a wipe and rub the food/mouth contact surfaces for 10-12 seconds. Rub thoroughly and let it dry for a few seconds. It is safe to use.
Can Utensil Wipes and Pacifier Wipes prevent disease like bird flu or SARS?
We have no information to support this type of claim. Again any cleansing of surfaces with an active ingredient designed for a specific task will be beneficial. However, this does not mean that you can eliminate all exposures with the use of Utensil Wipes or Pacifier Wipes. Exercise common sense by reducing contact with unclean environments, water systems and risky locations.
Don't we need some bacteria?
Yes. You do. But, what you don't need is bacteria/germs which can cause illness. These are especially common when traveling, in kitchens, bathrooms, public places and any area with a large amount of people. Just because the glass/dish/table/chair or floor looks clean, doesn't mean that it may not be covered with germs and bacteria which can spread disease.
What bacteria do Utensil Wipes and Pacifier Wipes combat?
We cannot make a claim on this subject, but you can find all the background research in doing a quick Google search online or visit our Safety Page for a link to study after study on the efficacy of essential oils combatting E. coli, Staph, and more.

Do we have any other sizes available?
