5.0 out of 5 starsExcellent, and fragrance free. Don't flush, though.
June 30, 2019
Flush at your own risk! The Drain Guys sent by our plumber to clear out our drain pipe to the street found a lot of them still in the pipe and told us never to flush them again. Now we toss them in the trash, instead, but they're great wipes, half the size of the big brand baby wipes, easy to use, and great if you don't like perfumed products.
1.0 out of 5 starsVery tiny, smell odd and caused a rash
April 23, 2018
They made my toddler’s bottom break out In a rash and we’ve always used Pampers diapers (he does have a sensitive bottom) •These are micro sized wipes •They have a very odd smell (not clean or fresh and honestly sort of a nasty smell). I’m planning to return them if possible and don’t recommend
These wipes are very small. It takes two or three of them do get the job done. They don't work well as a refill in the pop up container. However, they are flushable and safe for septic systems, that is why I bought them.
I rated this item a 2 because while I'm sure it's a decent product (4 stars), the manufacturer is most likely fully aware of the problem and still labels them as "flushable" (0 stars, making for an average of 2 stars). So go ahead and use them, just put them in the trash instead of down the loo. Your Utilities will charge your household with increased rates when the system clogs up, and our planet will be none the better for any overflows into our rivers and oceans. Thank you.

Utilities say "Flushable" personal wipes clog sewer systems
for the full story: [...]
Next time you go to toss that "flushable" wipe in the toilet, you might want to consider a request from your sewer utility: Don't.
Sewer agencies across the country say the rapidly growing use of pre-moistened "personal" wipes -- used most often by potty-training toddlers and people seeking what's advertised as a more "thorough" cleaning than toilet paper -- are clogging pipes and jamming pumps.
Utilities struggling with aging infrastructure have wrestled for years with the problem of "ragging" -- when baby wipes, dental floss, paper towels and other items not designed for flushing entangle sewer pumps. The latest menace, officials say, is that wipes and other products, including pop-off scrubbers on toilet-cleaning wands, are increasingly being marketed as "flushable." Even ever-thickening, super-soft toilet paper is worrisome because it takes longer to disintegrate, some say.
"Just because you can flush it doesn't mean you should," said I.J. Hudson, a spokesman for the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission, which handles sewage for 1.8 million Maryland residents in Montgomery and Prince George's counties.
The result: Utility officials say crews needed for less preventable sewer maintenance and repairs are being deployed instead to patrol for wipes.
