Wet wipe

  A wet wipe, also known as a wet nap or a moist towelette, is a small moistened piece of paper or cloth that often comes folded and individually wrapped in its own wrapper for convenience, much like a packet of sugar or a condom. Such towelettes are for cleansing or disinfecting.

Cleansing towelettes are generally moistened with scented water, while disinfecting towelettes are moistened with alcohol. They are often dispensed in restaurants, at service stations, along with airline meals, in doctors' offices, and other similar places. They are often included as part of a standard sealed cutlery package.

Wet wipes can also be bought in stores for private usage. In South East Asia, wet wipes are often sold out of refrigerators to gain the refreshing effect.
