Sterilization of pet wipes

In China, many people who keep pets do not know the concept of pet wipes, and even many people are using human wipes or pet towels to clean pets. This is a very wrong behavior. From a scientific point of view, due to the different pH of the skin surface of humans and animals, human wipes cannot be used for pets. Now the consumer’s concept is that people can use it for pets. In fact, this is a misunderstanding. The pH value of the human skin surface is between 4.5-5.5, while that of pets is between 6.8-7.4. Acidic wipes are used in close proximity. Sexual fur surface will cause pet epidermal pH imbalance, thereby reducing immunity, pets are easy to get sick, and will also damage pet fur.
