It wasn’t long before the post attracted dozens of likes and comments from fellow consumers sharing their thoughts.
One revealed: “Works well for me. I have guinea pigs and have very bad allergies to hay and after I handle or clean them out I always wipe myself down with the wipes and showers that evening.”
A second shared: “Thanks for posting, I bought some of the Kleenex allergy wipes as I make my eyes sore rubbing and they seem to be doing the trick as they are decent and cooling without irritation.
“I’ve tried normal water wipes and they still seem to irritate compared to these allergy ones. Not keen on the price though so I need to take a trip for these to try.”
“We use this it’s brilliant,” wrote a third.
A fourth, meanwhile, said: “Oooo amazing thanks”.
Other members of the group suggested alternatives for those suffering from bad hay fever, with one commenting: “Vaseline also does the same job as well”.
A second stated: “The wipes home bargains sell are really good. Might be the same brand I can’t remember.”
