Ancient formula, unusual scent,

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Whether you like these wipes or not will depend to a great extent on what you think of the scent. It is not particularly strong but it is distinctive, and it lingers.
The active ingredient is thymol, a naturally occurring compound that has been used (as a constituent of various plant oils) for thousands of years for its antiseptic properties. Today you will find it in many mouthwash and toothpaste formulations. That may give you a clue as to the sort of scent it has.
The tissues are well-sodden and so an application goes a long way. They seem to be as effective as other wipes. They are worth a try.

Agree. The scent for me is nearly intolerable. No matter how many times I wash my hands after use it still lingers... I actually avoid using them now to avoid the smell. But they do clean really well and do stay moist during use, so there's that positive aspect.

Received my first subscription order today. Could smell the wipes when I opened the shipping box. Sort of like an industrial disinfectant odor. Used the wipes on my kitchen counter. Can picture the germs dying just by the smell. Now I can't get the smell off my hands. Guess I'll have to use rubber gloves for the remaining 400+ wipes. Sorry, but don't think I'll be renewing my subscription order.

It's funny to see the comments on smell, because to me it's fine. I even use it on my hands in a pinch. Haven't had any problems doing that.

I just returned my shipment because I can't stand the smell.

Would like to know if they are as heavy as the original ones. Some other wipes are too thin.

They didn't strike me as too thin. They seemed robust enough.
