Antiseptic wipes are for disinfecting skin before putting on a dressing, bandage, or otherwise treating an injury. The good thing about these wipes is they are single-use and do not make a mess, so anyone can just pull one out of the box and use it. When picking out wipes, choose a box whose profile is flat enough to fit into the container of your first aid kit comfortably. Keep the flap of the box open so it doesn't get in the way. The primary ingredient of these wipes is alcohol, so avoid using them if you are near sparks or an open flame. Instead, get yourself or the victim to safety first.
