Carry wet wipes during hike with children

Wet wipes can be used in a number of situations when
hiking. Photo courtesy of Wikipedia.
Pre-moistened towelettes are excellent for cleaning hands and the face, to complement toilet paper, and to help clean cuts, blisters and wounds. To maximize their benefits, get the antibacterial or antiseptic kind.

You’ll want to carry them in a re-sealable plastic bag. Don’t mix the used with the unused ones, though.
