    We have been using the diabete-ezy wipes to clean before BG checks since diagnosis almost 1.5 years ago. They are on back-order right now, though, and we're almost out. My CWD is a messy 4 year old, so I really feel the need to clean her finger every time. Does anyone have another non-alcohol wipe they like to use? I recently heard of wipes called Dia-Wipes from England... anyone tried these? Shipping costs are surprisingly low.

    I use baby wipes cut up in little squares in her preschool kit, but I've heard these can mess with BG test results. Any feedback on that?

    When we do wipe, a paper towel with water works just fine.

    We keep a few individually-wrapped Kleenex Cottonelle wipes in her kit for when we are out and about without access to water, but mostly, we just rinse with water.

    He washes his hands with soap and water when he can, and we carry Huggies free (fragrance-free) baby wipes. He uses the wipes when he can't wash his hands.
