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.
As someone with a chemistry background I find it puzzling that people are worried that an MSDS exists on one chemical component of this product. Even water has an MSDS.
There is some thymol in the product, but the whole product is not thymol. Almost anything at a high enough concentration can be dangerous. Of course, you never know what you may be allergic to. Furthermore, anything that kills germs, botanical or otherwise is probably not good to eat or roll in at high concentrations. Of course they tell you not to clean any food surfaces with it, they don't want to get sued. I seriously doubt a small amount is going to hurt anyone unless they have very sensitive skin or specific allergies.
The smell is rather strong. It's somewhat of an antiseptic/medicinal smell and it does linger for a bit. At first I didn't care for it, but after a week or so, it actually kind of grew on me.
At this pace, it will take me about 10 weeks to go through one container; I cannot comment yet on how well the wipes will perform when I'm getting toward the end of the package.
UPDATE (7/21/10): I still had some left in one container 6 months after opening, and the wipes were still plenty moist! My teens don't like these wipes (particularly the smell) and prefer to use a spray with a paper towel for their daily "swipe" of the counters and toilet. But I still like these wipes for the convenience factor.
The wipes do have a very strong smell. For those people that are concerned about the odor, you may want to consider buying a single pack rather than a package of 6 just to ensure that you're not stuck with a product that you cannot stand. If you've ever dried herbs in your home - imagine the smell of drying thyme X 100. I never hated the smell, but I used to think it smelled really odd. Over a few weeks time, I did get used to it. As I've fazed out chemicals from my home, I've found that I now prefer the smell of these than to the odor emitted from Chlorox and Lysol wipes.
I have a steamer that disinfects well, but being that life can be hectic, I don't always have time to mess with it. I do use a lot of baking soda, washing soda, castile soap, vinegar, and tea tree oil - although when I REALLY want to know that something is disinfected, I reach for my Seventh Generation products. From my understanding, the active ingredient in these wipes (thymol) is the only botanical ingredient recognized by the IICRC that has been proven to be an EPA category IV disinfectant. Thymol kills a broad spectrum of nasty germs. While vinegar and/or peroxide are wonderful cleaners, this combo cannot boast the same disinfecting strength.Read more ›
But my god do they stink! Because thymol is an organic aromatic compound, you can't miss the smell and it appears to bind to the lipids in your skin, causing the smell to remain on my fingers after washing them. It's been over an hour now and they still smell.
NOW THE IMPORTANT STUFF:
1. Material Safety Data Sheet for this product because of the thymol. (Edit: While the EPA states that this compound is safe for use, it depends on contact time, concentration, and your skin. I still don't recommend this for sensitive skin. It cause severe redness and swelling.)
2. Sensitive Skin. I have sensitive skin and my skin freaked out.
This is a no go for sensitive skin. Period. You can't argue with red swollen skin.
