    I would not use anything with anti bacterial on their hands, especially if they put them in their mouth that stuff can't be good to put in your mouth. What about just plain old water and some face washers.

    I'd just stick to normal wet wipes or wet flannels. Anti bacterial stuff is so harsh!

    I think they're Heinz Sticky Fingers. I used those when DD was small, or some sort of other wipes.

    I'd not use anti-bacterial wash if he's putting his hands in his mouth. That stuff is not designed for consumption. It can also be bad for your health, because your body needs germs so it can build up immunity. A small amount of germs ingested is good for your overall health. Anti-bac can kill all the germs we need, including good ones, and it can be counter-productive to longterm health.

    It only really needs to be used when sanitation is essential (like when you're dealing with other people all the time, or whatever).

    I used Pigeon hand and face wipes when DS was younger.
